Afghanistan stuns Australia with historic 21-run win to stay alive in T20 World Cup

Afghanistan kept their T20 World Cup hopes alive with a shocking 21-run victory over Australia in St Vincent.

Posting 148-6, thanks to a strong opening partnership of 118 between Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran, Afghanistan then quickly reduced Australia to 32-3 in their chase.

Glenn Maxwell’s quick half-century gave Australia hope, but Gulbadin Naib’s crucial wickets led to Australia’s collapse from 106-6 to 113-9.

Afghanistan sealed their first-ever win over Australia in the final over, keeping their semi-final dreams alive. Rashid Khan’s side now faces Bangladesh in their last Super 8s game.
