Rahul's fifty puts India in controlSeptember 25, 2018 22:39
India 127-1 (20 ovs) vs Afg 252-8 | Scorecard
Karthik looking to get off strike with a single but Rashid bowls on a tight line and length to keep the right-hander quiet.
However, he spoils the over with a poor last ball as he drops it short and Karthik pulls it through midwicket for a four.
In the next over, Rahul uses the reverse sweep to good effect, hitting Nabi fine on the off-side for a four.
He is nearly done in by Nabi as he chips down the track trying for a big hit but is beaten in the flight and gets a thick inside edge which narrowly misses the stumps to get him three runs.
India in control on 127 for one in 20 overs, with another 126 needed for victory in 30 overs.
KL Rahul has stroked his way to a brilliant 60 from 63 balls, while Karthik has made six.
