T20 World Cup: Mujeeb Ur Rahman’s 5-wicket haul highlights Afghanistan’s 130-run victory over Scotland

Afghanistan sounded an early warning to the other teams in Group 2 with their record 130-run victory over Scotland in Match 17 of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 in Sharjah on Monday.

Afghanistan bowled out Scotland for 60 in 10.2 overs while defending 191 after riding on Mujeeb Ur Rahman’s career-best bowling figures on a slow and sticky wicket at the Sharjah International Stadium.

Mujeeb became the first bowler to pick a five-wicket haul on T20 World Cup debut and finished with the fifth best figures of 5 for 20 from his four overs. The 20-year-old also became the second youngest in the tournament’s history to bag a five-for.
