124 was never going to be a daunting target for New Zealand, and Afghanistan’s only hope of defending the puny target rested with their spinners. Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Rashid Khan did not disappoint, accounting for Daryl Mitchell and Martin Guptill respectively. However, the Kiwis have the asking rate under complete control, with 52 runs required from 45 balls. Skipper Kane Williamson is spearheading the chase in his calm and composed manner as New Zealand inch closer to a win that will ensure their progression to the semi-finals.
4⃣0⃣0⃣ FOR RASHID!
