Afghanistan defeated Sri Lanka by seven wickets in Pune on Monday to record their third win of the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup and maintain their hopes of a semi-final place.
Set 242 to win after a disciplined bowling display, Afghanistan finished on 242-3 with Azmatullah Omarzai unbeaten on 73 and captain Hashmatullah Shahidi 58 not out, the pair sharing an unbroken stand of 111.
Victory meant Afghanistan, who had already beaten champions England, had won back-to-back matches at the World Cup for the first time after they defeated Pakistan by eight wickets last time out.
