Afghanistan, the only non-Test team left in the fray, paid the price for some sloppy fielding after an impressive effort with the bat that saw skipper Asghar Stanikzai make a fine 47-ball 62.

Skipper Angelo Mathews remained unconquered on 21 at the other end of the wicket. For Afghanistan, Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan picked up a wicket each.
