AFG beat NED Highlights: Afghanistan clean sweep Netherlands – Afghanistan sealed a series whitewash of the Netherlands on Tuesday in the third one-day international in Doha, boosting their 2023 World Cup qualifying bid. Najibullah Zadran smashed a 59-ball 71 as the Afghans beat the Netherlands by 75 runs in the third ODI and clean sweep the series 3-0.

Thanks to Najibullah Zadran’s quickfire knock, Afghanistan posted 254/5 from their 50 overs, before their spinners induced a Dutch collapse from 103/0 to 179 all out.

The 75-run victory was Afghanistan’s sixth win from as many matches and moves them up to fifth in the 13-team 2023 World Cup Super League table. The top eight nations will earn automatic qualification for next year’s global showpiece in India. Afghanistan have played in each of the last two ODI World Cups.

Batting first for the third successive game in the series, Hashmatullah Shahidi’s men made a solid start, with Riaz Hussan and Rahmat Shah making 50 and 48 respectively. Najibullah provided the impetus to set a challenging total, smashing eight fours and three sixes in his innings.

The Netherlands made a brilliant start to their chase with a 103-run opening stand between Scott Edwards and Colin Ackermann.

But leg-spinner Qais Ahmad, making his ODI debut, trapped Tonga-born wicket-keeper Edwards lbw for 54 to start a procession of wickets. Rashid Khan dismissed Ackermann for 81 and the Netherlands offered very little other resistance.

The 21-year-old Qais, who has starred in T20 franchise cricket around the world, took the last two wickets to finish with figures of 3-32.
