In a one-sided match, Afghanistan emerged victorious against New Zealand at Providence Stadium in Guyana, claiming an emphatic 84-run win in the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. 

With significant contributions from bowlers and well-constructed contributions by the batters, Afghanistan delivered a commanding performance to secure their second consecutive win in the tournament and overall first victory over the Blackcaps in the shortest format.

In the match, New Zealand won the toss and the bowlers failed to put up a significant performance as Afghanistan batters showcased their batting depth, setting a formidable total of 159/6 in their allotted 20 overs. 

Rahmanullah Gurbaz, the opening batter of Afghanistan, grabbed the limelight with his magnificent performance and scored 80 runs off 56 balls, featuring an array of boundaries and sixes. 

Chasing the target, New Zealand’s batting lineup collapsed in no time under the relentless pressure imposed by Afghanistan’s bowlers. 

The Afghan bowlers showcased their commendable performance, Fazalhaq Farooqi led the charge with a fiery spell, claiming four wickets for just 17 runs, while Mohammad Nabi provided crucial breakthroughs with two wickets. 

Captain Rashid Khan showcased his spin wizardry, snaring four wickets and orchestrating New Zealand’s batting collapse. 

After the historic win against New Zealand, Twitter reacted and celebrated Afganisthan's win with exclusive tweets and praises. 

Here’s how Twitter reacted:

Afghanistan have played wonderful cricket in the two matches they have played so far in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, and the Rashid Khan-led Afghanistan will play its next match against Papua New Guinea (PNG) on June 14, 2024.
