September 25, 2018  18:45

Afg 117-4 (25 ovs) vs India | Scorecard

Khaleel comes back into the attack. He starts with a short ball which Shahzad pulls over midwicket for a six to race into the 90s.

The next ball is slightly up as Shahzad has a poke and is beaten outside the off-stump.

Shahzad swings again as he targets the midwicket but is beaten as wicketkeeper Dhoni appeals for caught behind which the umpire gives out.

He goes for the review and rightly so as the ball flicked the right shoulder before going through to the wicketkeeper and Shahzad gets another lifeline.

Khaleel runs the fourth ball down to thirdman for a single before Naib defends the rest of the over.

Shahzad giving Kuldeep utmost respect as he taps the spinner's first delivery on the off-side for a single before Naib plays five dot balls in a row.

Shahzad has given up on his strokeplay as he looks for the ones and twos to ensure he brings up his century.

Shahzad watchfully tucks Khaleel on the leg side for one before Naib picks one off the last ball.

Naib playing a lot of of dot balls, scoring just four from 24 balls before he loses patience and plays a risky sweep shot which goes uppishly to deep square leg for one.

Kuldeep has been wonderful with the ball, giving away just eight runs from his six overs, while taking two wickets.

Jadeja comes back as he gives away three runs with Afghanistan reaching 117 for four in 25 overs, with Shahzad stroking his way to 97 from 83 balls, and Naib on seven from 30 balls.
