India 164-3 (30 ovs) vs Afg 252-8 | Scorecard
Karthik looks to loft leggie Rahman but it goes on the bounce to long-off for a single.
He drives the fifth ball through the covers for two runs before he slog sweeps the last ball past midwicket for four to take India past the 250-run mark, in the 27th over.
In the next over, Karthik swings a full toss from Ahmadi over midwicket for another boundary to keep the scoreboard ticking.
Medium pacer Alam comes back into the attack and he does well to give away just two singles in his fifth over.
Nabi back from the other end as the part-timers are taken off. He beats Manish Pandey with the first ball which turns into the right-hander and also goes through the keeper for three runs.
A single to Karthik off the fourth ball as India reach 164 for three in 30 overs, needing another 89 runs from 20 overs for victory with seven wickets in hand.
Karthik has stroked his way to 26 from 36 balls, while Pandey has made eight.
