FOUR! Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Glenn Maxwell. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Maxwell drives down the ground to win the match for Australia, a comfortbale victory in the end for them. Finch got Australia off to a great start scoring 66 off 49 balls but the stand out performer was David Warner who played a calm and controlled innings throughout to see his team home. Warner scored a fantastic 89 off 144 deliveries, hitting eight boundaries. Afghanistan will not be dissapointed after that performance as they fielded and bowled well as a team with their stand out bowler being Hamid Hassan who opened the bowling and ended with only 15 runs coming off his six overs. Australia pick up their first win of the tournament today, leaving Afghanistan looking to their next match against Sri Lanka for their first win

OUT! Bowled. Pat Cummins to Mujeeb Ur Rahman. Length ball, middle stump backing away cutting, missed to. Cummins finishes the Afghanistan innings by clean bowling Rahman with a quick delivery, meaning Australia require 208 to win. Afghanistan didn't get off to the best start losing both their openers for ducks, however a well made 43 from Shah put the batting side back on track. Zadran batted well for his 51 and formed a strong partnership with Naib, a quick 27 off 11 balls from Khan as well helped Afghanistan reach their total. Australia will be happy with their efforts in the field and confident of chasing the total down
