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.
49.4
W
OUT! Bowled. Mohammed Shami to Aftab Alam. Length ball, off stump backing away Slog, missed to. Tough situation to come out to. Swinging from the hip trying to clear the rope but not connecting with the ball. Roar of delight from Shami. Hat-trick ball coming up.

OUT! Caught. Mohammed Shami to Mohammad Nabi. Half volley, down leg side backing away driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Pandya. That the one India have been after. Shami finally gets it in the blockhole and Nabi can't dig it out and create power to clear the rope. Down the throat of the fielder and that could the end of the game.

India think this is the wicket they have been searching for but Nabi has reviewed. Superb from Nabi as the impact is outside the line of off stump.

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. Slowing the ball down causing Rashid to overbalance as the ball spun past the bat. Dhoni does what he does best and whips off the bails in a flash.

49.6
1
Gulbadin Naib to Jasprit Bumrah. Slower ball yorker, outside off stump moves in front working, inside edge to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Khil. Hats off to Afghanistan for a superb effort with the ball and in the field. They made life difficult for the batsmen as their spinners clamped down on the boundaries and took all the pace off the ball. Not the best Indian performance and only Virat Kohli managed to get to grips with the slow nature of the surface. 225 to win is very achievable for Afghanistan but they will need to cope with the pressure of a chase against one of the best bowling attacks in the world.
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.

2
Gulbadin Naib to Kedar Jadhav. Full toss, off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control to long on for 2 runs, run save by Khan. Rashid saves his team two runs but looks to have hurt himself in the process. All the while Jadhav has passed fifty.

APPEAL! Rashid Khan to Kedar Jadhav. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Very good review from India. Sharp turn off the surface and even though Jadhav is way across his stumps the ball would be spinning past the leg stump.

The top four is beginning to form nicely with India firmly planted and with two games in hand on other teams. Afghanistan on the other hand are firmly planted at the bottom without a win and it will take something special for them to reach the semi-finals, a win today would definitely help.India will be hoping to rack up the runs after winning the toss and choosing to bat first. One enforced change for them with Mohammed Shami in for Bhuvneshwar Kumar while there are two changes for Afghanistan with Hazrat Zazai and Aftab Alam in.

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! 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.
