Afghanistan continued their steady rise in international cricket with a shock 91-run victory over Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi on Monday, eliminating the former champions from the Asia Cup. Afghanistan scored a gritty 249, and then bowled well to see off the Sri Lankan attack for 158 in 41.2 overs.
Afghanistan will come up against Pakistan on Friday, who have had a slightly more mixed campaign in the United Arab Emirates so far. Pakistan sauntered to a win over Hong Kong in their first match, rapidly scoring 120 runs from 23.4 overs to beat the minnows, who managed to put together 116 runs after batting first.
However, Pakistan were undone by India, who restricted Pakistan to 162 and chased down the target in just 29 overs.
