Afg 133-5 (29 ovs) vs India | Scorecard

Pacer Kaul comes back in place of Kuldeep. He tries a bouncer as Naib goes for the pull but gets it off the gloves, fine on the leg side for a four.

That is the first boundary hit by a Afghanistan player other than Shahzad in this innings, who has hit nine fours and six sixes so far.

After spending some time away from the strike, Shahzad finally gets back on strike. He is content to take the single as he steers Jadeja to short thirdman and attempts a run but is sent back before he takes one into the covers for a single as he has to sprint to make his crease and take his score to 98.

Kaul tries a short ball to Shahzad who sways out of the way before he takes another single on the off-side to move to 99.

In the next over, Shahzad glances Chahar fine on the leg side for a four to race to his century from 88 balls, having hit 10 fours and six sixes.

Some relief for Chahar on his debut after a horror start as he claims the wicket of Naib, who chips it straight into the hands of Jadhav at deep midwicket to perish for 15.
