From here, the Afghanistan batting lost its momentum as Scotland bowlers led by Mark Watt (1/27) and Bradley Currie (2/26) managed to stem the flow of runs by picking regular wickets. Captain Rashid Khan arrived in the death overs to hit a quickfire 15 off seven to help Afghanistan to 178/8 in their allotted overs.

The Afghanistan bowlers were into the act pretty early in the innings, with Mujeeb Ur Rahman breaking the opening stand in the fourth over. George Munsey’s aggressive display came to an end when Naveen-ul-Haq cleaned his off-stump up in the very next over.

Afghanistan spinners soon had the stranglehold over the game, as Mujeeb picked the third wicket and then Rashid delivered the big breakthrough with the wicket of his opposite number, Richie Berrington. Karim Janat made further inroads in the lower order, and the Scotland innings petered off in the face of a stiff ask.

Afghanistan won by 55 runs eventually to complete their preparations for the T20 World Cup. Their first game is against Uganda on June 4 while Scotland play England in Barbados in their opener.
