Afghanistan finished with 254, scoring 87 in the final 10 overs in the 3rd ODI against Netherlands. They started quite slow with just 22 off the first 10 overs, but a superb knock from Najibullah Zadran provided the final flourish. He smashed a quickfire 71 off 59 balls, including a few lusty blows. Netherlands were also handed a five-run penalty for ball-tampering, which was added to Afghanistan’s score. Netherlands have started steadily in reply, racking up 59 for no loss in 13 overs.
