Opener Evin Lewis hits 68 runs from 41 deliveries captain Kieron Pollard scored 32 runs from 22 deliveries. Afghani bowler Gulbadin Naib, who has seen a career's worth of ups and downs in the past six months, was at the forefront of the fightback.

Captain Rashid Khan took 1 wicket and gave 34 runs.
The West Indies bowlers showing considerably more zip and discipline than the Afghans had. Hazratullah Zazai's stand-and-deliver method wasn't as effective against bowlers who could move the ball, and though he didn't get out, he couldn't get the runs flowing. With two wickets having fallen in the first three overs and Zazai's leaden-footedness, Afghanistan stuttered. Only Asghar Afghan and Najibullah Zadran showed any measure of comfort and dominance, but they couldn't score quickly enough to threaten the target. Opener Hazratullah Zazai scratched around 29 balls and scored just 23 runs. Wicket keeper batsman Gurbaz has gone for a golden duck. Asghar Afghan and Najibullah Zadran scored 25 runs from 21 deliveries and 27 runs from 22 deliveries respectively. West Indies bowler Kesrick Williams took 3 wickets and gave only 17 runs and captain Pollard took 2 wickets and gave only 17 runs. The latter end of the match captain Kieron Pollard becomes the man of the match.
