Afghanistan Makes History, Enters T20 World Cup Semifinals

In a historic achievement, Afghanistan, led by the resilient Rashid Khan, secured their maiden T20 World Cup semifinal berth with a thrilling eight-run victory over Bangladesh. This remarkable win not only propelled Afghanistan forward but also ousted reigning champions Australia from the tournament, marking a pivotal moment in Afghan cricket history.

Facing Bangladesh in a rain-shortened Super 8 encounter, Afghanistan opted to bat first and struggled to reach 115/5 amidst challenging pitch conditions. The match, reduced to 19 overs per side due to rain interruptions, handed Bangladesh a revised target of 114 runs for victory.

Afghanistan's bowlers, spearheaded by Rashid Khan with figures of 4/23 and Naveen-ul-Haq with 4/26, showcased exceptional skill and determination. Their collective effort restricted Bangladesh to 105 all out in 17.5 overs, clinching a historic win for Afghanistan and cementing their status as formidable contenders in international cricket.

This triumph sets the stage for Afghanistan's semifinal clash against South Africa on June 27, underscoring their rapid rise and resilience in the face of adversity since emerging on the global cricket scene in 2017.
