Afghanistan rode on Allah Noor’s fifty to bring the equation down to 85 runs in 66 balls in reply to England’s 231/6 in the first semi-final at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. Afghanistan are placed at 146/4 after 36 overs, with Bilal Ahmed and Abdul Hadi taking charge of the chase. The duo has added 40 runs and Afghanistan would hope they can steer the team over the line in the knockout affair. For England, Thomas Aspinwall has been the chief wicket-taker, snaring a couple while also being part of a run-out.
Fifty: Allah Noor brings up his maiden half-century in YODIs against the English U19s in the Semi-final of ICC U19s CWC 2022.
