3:57 AM IST Presentation Time....
3:52 AM IST Earlier in the game, Afghanistan were sent into bat first and they made 183 for 5 on the back of attacking 70s from Ibrahim Zadran and Rahmanullah Gurbaz. The middle order could not keep the momentum once the openers were gone and they finished 20-30 runs short of the expected score. Cosmos Kyewuta and skipper Brian Masaba were the pick of the Ugandan bowlers as they snapped two wickets each and bowled economically. Uganda came back brilliantly with the ball but were not in the contest at all with the bat. They will hope to take the positives from this game and more forward in the competition.
3:51 AM IST A comprehensive win for Afghanistan as they trump Uganda by 125 runs and start their campaign with a big win. Chasing 184 for the win, Uganda were in all sorts of trouble from the start as they were reduced to 18 for 5 inside the first five overs. Riazat Ali Shan and Robinson Obuya hung around for a while but once they were dismissed, the lower order fell like a pack of cards and Uganda were bundled out for just 58. For Afghanistan, Fazalhaq Farooqi was the star of the show with 5 wickets for 9 runs in his spell. He broke the back of Ugandan batting and bowled splendidly. Rashid Khan and Naveen-ul-Haq chipped in with a couple while Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman took a solitary wicket. Afghanistan will be mightly pleased with this win and it gives a massive boost to their net run rate.

Rashid Khan to Henry Ssenyondo, no run

OUT! TIMBER! Rashid Khan wraps up proceedings with a double whammy and Uganda are bundled out for just 58 runs here. Quicker through the air, floated up a bit fuller and around off stump. It is another googly from Rashid and the ball turns back in sharply. Henry Ssenyondo looks to defend off the front foot but the ball goes between bat and pad to castle into the stumps and Afghanistan beat Uganda by a massive 125 runs.

3:47 AM IST Henry Ssenyondo is the last man in for Uganda.

Rashid Khan to Bilal Hassan, no run

OUT! LBW! Bilal Hassan is hit on the pads for the upteenth time and the finger goes up for LBW. Rashid Khan just drags the length back, bowling it flatter around off and gets the googly to turn back in. Bilal goes for the reverse swep but misses and gets hit flush on the pads. Bilal does review it but there;s nothing on UltraEdge and Ball Tracking shows three reds. Finally, Rashid is able to see the back of Bilal here.
