Paul Stirling top-scored with a 87-ball 55 but Ireland could only manage 209/7 in the ICC World Cup qualifier 2018 match in Harare on Friday. After Zimbabwe cricket team’s stunning loss to the United Arab Emirates, the game became a virtual shoot-out between Afghanistan cricket team and Ireland cricket team. Mohammad Shahzad’s fifty and some vital knocks from the middle order helped Afghanistan beat Ireland by five wickets to seal the last remaining spot in the ICC cricket World Cup in England and Wales from May 30-July 14 2019.

The UAE, who were out of World Cup contention last week after losing to Scotland, did a huge favour to Afghanistan and Ireland, when against all odds and expectations, they defeated Zimbabwe by three runs in the penultimate match of the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018 Super Six.

Afghanistan’s win has not only helped them qualify for the 2019 World Cup but they will play the West Indies in the final. With the match not ending in a tie, Zimbabwe’s hopes have been officially extinguished.
