Afg 13-0 (2 ovs) vs India | Scorecard
Left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed to open the bowling for India. Mohammad Shahzad defends the first two balls before he bowls a wide down the leg side.
Shahzad then plays a nothing shot as he looks to hit the ball through the off-side but looks to pull out of the shot and eventually ends up edging it in the gap between the wicketkeeper and the slip fielder for a four to get Afghanistan off the mark.
He keeps strike with a single off the last ball to the fine leg region.
Debutant Deepak Chahar to bowl from the other end. Shahzad watchfully defends the first three balls before he smashes the fourth ball through the off-side for a four. He flicks the last ball through midwicket and the bulky opener rushes across for the third run to retain strike.
