Sri Lanka beat Afghanistan in low-scoring World Cup thriller

Sri Lanka deny Afghanistan a famous victory by winning a low-scoring thriller in the World Cup at Cardiff.

After a dismal batting collapse by Sri Lanka, Afghanistan needed a rain-revised target of just 187 from 41 overs but were beaten by 34 runs.

Afghanistan slipped to 54-5 in their chase but a partnership of 64 by Najibullah Zadran and captain Gulbadin Naib gave them hope.
