Afghanistan cruised to a massive 130-run victory over Scotland in their ICC Twenty20 World Cup Group Two match played at the Sharjah Stadium in the United Arab Emirates yesterday.

After piling up a massive 190 for four from their 20 overs, Afghanistan produced a tremendous bowling performance to skittle out their opponents for a paltry 60 runs in 10.2 overs.

Twenty-year-old off-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman was the match winner for Afghanistan with a sensational five-wicket haul while the more experienced Rashid Khan had a four-wicket haul.

This was after Afghanistan had rattled up a formidable 190 for four thanks to two good contributions from Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz 46 and Najibullah Zadran.

Chief scores

Afghanistan: 190/4 in 20 overs (Hazratullah Zazai 44, Mohammad Shahzad 22, Rahmanullah Gurbaz 46, Najibullah Zadran 59, Safyaan Sharif 2/33)

Scotland: 60 in 10.2 overs (George Munsey 25, Mujeeb Ur Rahman 5/20, Rashid Khan 4/9).
