Afghanistan, who had also defeated giant team New Zealand in this World Cup, is now in the semifinal.

After putting 115/5 in 20 overs, Afghanistan bowled Bangladesh for 105 in 17.5 overs to clinch the win through Duckworth Lewis method in a rain-interrupted match.

Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan (4/23) and Naveen-ul-Haq (4/26) were the star of the match with the ball after low total put on the scoreboard by the batters.

Afghanistan will now take on South Africa in the first semifinal while India will play against England in the second semifinal. Both matches will be played on June 27.
