Afghanistan registered a record win over Scotland in their first Super 12 stage match at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 in Sharjah on Monday, October 25.

In their first appearance at this stage of the tournament, Scotland disintegrated as they were bundled out for just 60 runs in 10.2 overs while chasing a mammoth total of 191.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman outfoxed the Scottish batters, picked five wickets for 20 runs, including three in his second over, which effectively ended the opposition’s hopes of a successful chase.

Rashid Khan also bagged four wickets for nine runs as Afghanistan’s world-class spin attack ran riot.

Earlier, the Scotland bowling unit was taken to the cleaners by the Afghans, who posted 190 runs on the board for the loss of 4 wickets – the highest score of the 2021 T20 World Cup so far.

Afghanistan batters hit 11 sixes, including some which went out of the ground. Najibullah Zadran smashed 59 from 34 balls while Rahmanullah Gurbaz made 46 off 37 and Hazratullah Zazai 44 from 30 deliveries.
