Dubai: Afghanistan dented Bermuda's hopes when they cruised to an eight-wicket victory with more than half their overs to spare in a Group B game at the ICC World Cup Twenty20 qualifiers here.

Only Lionel Cann (28), Jacobi Robinson (13) and Chris Douglas (12) reached double figures as Bermuda crumbled to 101 all out in 18.1 overs after being sent in. Second-placed Afghanistan replied with 104/2 in 9.5 overs to secure their third win on Wednesday.

Leg-break bowler Samiullah Shenwari led the Afghan attack with 3/20 from four overs, Shapoor Zadran, Karim Sadiq and Mohammad Nabi chipped in with two wickets apiece as Bermuda floundered.
