Kingstown: In a thrilling Super 8 encounter at the T20 World Cup 2024, Afghanistan secured a historic semi-finals berth by defeating Bangladesh by 8 runs via the DLS method. This victory marks Afghanistan's first appearance in the semi-finals of a major ICC event and eliminates Australia from the tournament, who needed a Bangladesh win to advance.

The match which was hit by rain saw Afghanistan defending a low total with Rashid Khan delivering a stellar performance. Rashid took four crucial wickets and contributed a vital 10-ball 19-run cameo with the bat, pushing Afghanistan's total beyond 100 runs. Despite a resilient half-century by Bangladesh's Litton Das, who carried his bat to the end, Rashid Khan's efforts ensured Afghanistan's victory.

Batting first, Afghanistan had scored 115 for 5 in their 20 overs and then bowled out Bangladesh for 105 in 17.5 overs. The match was reduced to 19 overs per side, and Bangladesh was given a revised target of 114. Rahmanullah Gurbaz top-scored for Afghanistan with a 55-ball 43, while Rishab Hossain took 3 wickets for 26 runs for Bangladesh. In reply, Litton Das scored an unbeaten 49-ball 54 for Bangladesh. Afghanistan will face South Africa in the semi-finals on June 27.
