India off to a good start after Afghanistan post 252September 25, 2018 21:27
India 19-0 (3 ovs) vs Afg 252-8 | Scorecard
India have a new opening pair in KL Rahul and Ambati Rayudu, who have a good opportunity to prove their mettle.
Rahul starts on the right note as he begins the innings with a four, cutting a short ball from Aftab Alam square on the off-side.
He defends the next two balls before taking one on the leg side and Rayudu takes another single off the next to get off the mark.
The last ball is down the leg side as Rahul misses the glance but it hits the pads and goes fine for four leg byes as 10 come from the first over.
Spinner Mujeeb ur Rahman to open the bowling from the other end. A single each to Rayudu and Rahul as Mujeeb makes a tidy start.
Rayudu makes most of some width from Alam as he slashes the fast bowler over the off-side for a six.
