September 25, 2018  17:39

Afg 48-0 (8 ovs) vs India | Scorecard

Left-armer Khaleel does well to follow Chahar's horror over with a maiden over, as Ahmadi looks to play with caution and not trying anything with Shahzad on the attack from the other end.

A change in the bowling as Siddharth Kaul comes in for Chahar, who bowled two overs for 24 runs.

Shahzad tries to hit the first two balls through the off-side but can't find the gap before he smashes the third ball through the covers for a four and keeps strike with a single from the last ball.

Shahzad in the mood as he goes after Khaleel, smashing the left-armer back over his head for a straight six!

He swings again at the next ball but this time Khaleel deceives him with the change of pace as Shahzad plays and misses.

Khaleel bowls a good bouncer to Shahzad, targetting the right-hander's body who does well to sway out of the way.

He punches the next ball past point as Jadeja does well to sprint after the next ball and returns the ball quickly to keep it down to two.

The last ball is a bouncer as Shahzad goes for the pull but is beaten.

Spin introduced as Ravindra Jadeja comes into the attack. Ahmadi throws his bat at a wide one and is beaten and again a couple of balls later as Jadeja gets some turn.

A good start from Jadeja as he begins his spell with a maiden.

Afghanistan have raced to 48 for no loss in eight overs, with Shahzad on 41 from 32 balls and Ahmadi on three from 17 balls.
