AFG vs SCO: Mujeeb, Rashid star in Afghanistan crushes Scotland by 130 runs

Helpful contributions from top-tier hitters led by veteran Najibullah Zadran and Mujeeb ur Rahman’s five-wicket run helped Afghanistan start the ICC T20 World Cup with 130 runs in the playoffs.

After winning the toss and hitting first in this Super 12 Group 2 match, Afghanistan scored 190 of four and then pitched Scotland with 60 runs in 10.2 overs after defeating a team like Bangladesh in the playoffs. This is Afghanistan’s biggest victory in terms of racing in the T20, while it is the second biggest joint victory in the T20 World Cup.

Zadran scored 59 runs on 34 balls, which included five fours and three sixes, before being eliminated on the last ball of innings. He added 87 runs for the third wicket with Rahmanullah Gurbaz (42 runs of 37 balls, one four, four sixes). Previously, starter Hazratullah Zazai played a large number of 44-run innings on 30 balls with the help of three fours-sixes.

Scotland’s batsmen had no response to Afghanistan’s spinning attack. Mujeeb took five wickets for 20 runs in four overs. This was followed by the magic of Rashid Khan, who spun his legs, who took four wickets for nine races. A wicket was taken over by fast launcher Naveen-ul-Haq. Only three Scottish hitters reached double digits.

The launch was slow, spinner friendly and Afghanistan had world class spinners. Mujeeb wreaked havoc in the fourth over innings and his second over. He missed a hat-trick, but sent captain Kyle Coetzer (10), veteran Callum McLeod and Richie Barrington to the flag in this change.

Mujeeb then pitched George Munsey, Scotland’s leading scorer at 25, and then took his fifth spot on Mark Watt (a) with the best performance of his career. After this, Rashid showed his amazement. He brought in lower-order hitters, including Chris Greaves (12), who was the third hitter to reach double figures. He finished the Scotland innings taking lands in successive installments in his third over.

Earlier, Afghanistan, which hit first after the last World Cup, got off to a good start with 82.61 percent of games. Jazai and Mohammad Shahzad (22 of 15 balls) made the most of the powerplay overs, adding 54 runs for the first wicket. Meanwhile, Jazai also hit six on Michael Leask and Bradley Wheel.

Shehzad’s six on Lisk went 79 meters away, but he failed to make the shot at the right time on Safayan Sharif (2 for 33 runs) and received a simple catch in the middle of the field. Jazai also failed to complete his half century and left-arm spinner Mark Watt (1 of 23) grabbed the inside edge of his bat and scooted onto the grounds.

After the starters returned to the pavilion, the experienced Zadran and Gurbaz took over. Gurbaz sent everyone from Chris Greaves, Josh Davey to the Brad Wheel for six runs, while Zadran then hit the ball to the boundary line and then hit Sharif for the first six of his innings and then messed up the analysis of Watt bowling.

However, Gurbaz hit Davy’s full pitch over additional coverage to miss half a century. Zadran, however, completed his half century with 30 balls and was later caught in the midwicket against Sharif. Captain Mohammad Nabi was undefeated in 11 races.
