Afghanistan set up a winner-takes-all showdown with Zimbabwe by beating Hong Kong by six wickets in the World Twenty20 in Nagpur.
The winner of Saturday's decider will enter England's Super 10 group.
Hong Kong won the toss but their total of 116-6 never looked enough as spinner Mohammad Nabi took 4-20.
Openers Mohammad Shahzad (41) and Noor Ali Zadran (35) added 70 as Afghanistan won with two overs to spare. Hong Kong join Scotland in being eliminated.
