201 all out. Extras second highest scorer
Afghanistan target is 187 off 41 overs. They should be favourites now.

Ah well, that looked like it might be quite exciting at one point, but it fizzled out.

South Africa vs India and NZ Vs Bangladesh tomorrow. You'd suspect straightforward enough for India and NZ, but let's see!

Given how poor SA have been so far India should win ...... Bangladesh could beat NZ if theyre not on top of thier game .... find out tomorrow

Afghanistan have some good bowlers - particularly the spinners, Nabi & Rashid.

But not convinced by any of their batsmen today.....they looked all over the place against a pretty middling Sri Lankan pace attack.

Suspect that was their best chance of picking up a win - unless they come up against Pakistan or the Windies on one of 'those' days.
