W
OUT! Bowled. Mohammed Shami to Mujeeb Ur Rahman. Yorker, to leg backing away driving, missed to. He's done it. Shami completes the victory with a World Cup hat-trick. Held his nerve brilliantly at the end after going for a boundary from his first delivery.India will take the two points but they were made to work incredibly hard for the win. They didn't have a big score on the board and Afghanistan got off to a good start with the bat. Wickets in the middle overs were crucial for India in keeping the runs down and putting pressure on the inexperienced batsmen. Mohammad Nabi tried everything to get his team over the line and his 52 was nearly an innings to remember but he fell just short.With that result Afghanistan stay rooted to the bottom while India move into third and have all the momentum going their way.

OUT! Stumped. Yuzvendra Chahal to Rashid Khan. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper, by Dhoni. Beauty of a delivery in a pressure situation.

49.5
W
OUT! Caught (Sub). Gulbadin Naib to Kedar Jadhav. Slower length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover. Lack of pace to work with. Jadhav has to force the ball over the top but the timing has not been there all game. Straight to cover and the sub takes the catch at the second attempt.
49.3
W
OUT! Bowled. Gulbadin Naib to Mohammed Shami. Leg cutter length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to. Big heave across the line. Misses the ball but the leg stump takes a battering. Brilliant bowling once again and a fantastic celebration to go with it.

W
OUT! Caught. Aftab Alam to Hardik Pandya. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Khil. Change of length and pace. Feathered an edge through to Ikram who makes light work of the catch. Superb mix of deliveries by Aftab at the death to keep the Indian batsmen guessing.

SIX! Aftab Alam to Kedar Jadhav. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled over long on for 6 runs. A one-handed six down the ground. All power from Jadhav as he didn't time that well at all.
45.2
4
FOUR! Aftab Alam to Kedar Jadhav. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the back foot flick, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Fine tickle around the corner. Uses the pace on the ball to beat fine leg and pick up a much needed boundary.

OUT! Stumped. Rashid Khan to MS Dhoni. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper, by Khil. Gets his man this time. Loopy, spinning delivery which tempts Dhoni down the track but he can't lay bat on ball. Sharp work behind the stumps and Dhoni is on his way back. Brilliant cricket all round.

FOUR! Aftab Alam to MS Dhoni. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Probably not the greatest delivery with only a deep point on the offside. This is the type of ball Dhoni is waiting for and he casually lofts it over the top.
42.2
4
FOUR! Aftab Alam to Kedar Jadhav. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs. Not entirely comfortable on the short ball. Helped it around the corner but off the top edge. Safely done in the end with fine leg inside the ring.

FOUR! Rashid Khan to Kedar Jadhav. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Releases plenty of pressure. Four dot balls up until that point but a confident stroke over midwicket to find the rope.

W
OUT! Caught. Mohammad Nabi to Virat Kohli. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, top edge in the air uncontrolled to short third man, by Zurmatai. What a huge wicket this is. Kohli tries to force one off the back foot but extra bounce finds the edge. Simple catch at short third and now Afghanistan can really put the squeeze on with two new batsmen at the crease.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Rahmat Shah Wickets : 1
26.1
W
OUT! L.B.W. Rahmat Shah to Vijay Shankar. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to. A wicket just as the partnership was starting to increase the run-rate. Sweeping around his front pad and as he was standing in front of the stumps the LBW was always in play. Clipping the leg stump says ball-tracking and Shankar has to go for 29.

FOUR! Rashid Khan to Virat Kohli. Googly back of a length, middle stump on the back foot flick, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Not a very good delivery. Dragged down, spinning towards the legside and an easy boundary for Kohli. Ominous signs for Afghanistan.

OUT! Caught. Mohammad Nabi to Lokesh Rahul. Off break length ball, outside off stump moves in front reverse sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to short third man, by Zazai. The easiest of catches for short third man. Top edged towards Zazai after the pressure of a few too many dot balls and not enough boundaries caused Rahul to play a different stroke. India two down early, time for the middle-order to show what they are capable of.

Two in the over and now this game has been blow apart. Bumrah's extra pace has caused trouble all day and this was a tame dismissal from Hashmatullah.

OUT! Caught. Hardik Pandya to Gulbadin Naib. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Shankar. Doesn't have the pace of a Shami or Bumrah but the short ball tactic still works. Extra bounce and skiddy pace all adds up to a simple catch in the deep. Afghanistan could have done without losing a wicket now after they had built a good platform.

FOUR! Hardik Pandya to Gulbadin Naib. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Back to back. Into the very same area but played with a more horizontal bat as Hardik bowled shorter. Decent start made by the Afghan team.

FOUR! Hardik Pandya to Gulbadin Naib. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Not the most technical of strokes. Good old fashioned hoick over the legside to the fence.

OUT! Bowled. Mohammed Shami to Hazratullah Zazai. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to. This has been coming for a while. Plenty of swings and misses by both batsmen and this time Shami is on target. Stumps are scattered and India have their first.

FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Hazratullah Zazai. Length ball, to leg on the front foot pushing, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Edged past second slip and fine of third man. Streaky boundary for Zazai but it might give him some confidence.
