Pakistan have reached the semi-final of the ICC Under-19 World Cup Super League following Afghanistan’s defeat by six wickets in the Quarter-final at Benoni on Friday.
Taking up batting first, Afghanistan scored 189 in 49.1 overs for all.

With 53 balls spare, an unbeaten 63-run stand between Qasim Akram (25 off 41) and Mohammad Haris (29 off 43) helped Pakistan chase the target.
A 41-ball 30 (two fours and one six) provided Abdul Rahman with a late flourish to the innings.
