Openers Rahul, Rayudu put India in controlSeptember 25, 2018 22:16
India 99-0 (15 ovs) vs Afg 252-8 | Scorecard
The field has spread around as Rahul and Rayudu collect easy singles off Naib before the latter hammers the fast bowler back over his head for a six.
Off-spinner Mohammad Nabi comes into the attack as Rashid Khan, who is struggling with an injury, is yet to have a bowl.
Nabi makes a tidy start as he gives away just three singles in his first over and Naib follows it up with four runs from the next over.
The singles are coming at a pretty good rate with the field spread around. Rahul comes down the track and chips Nabi over midwicket for two runs and then takes one to sweeper cover to easily collect six runs from the 14th over.
The two openers are running away with the match. Rahul plays a beautiful lofted straight drive off Naib for a boundary and then takes one on the leg side.
Rayudu swings the last ball over midwicket for a six as India reach 99 for no loss in 15 overs.
