View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai c †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 6 15 9 0 0 66.66
11.3 50.3 mph, and another one for Yuvraj, who may not have set the stage alight with the bat but he has got his third with the ball, gets this one to spin away after drifting in, a thin outside edge and Dhoni doesn't make another mistake, two new batsmen at the crease 75/4
View dismissal Mohammad Nabi c Sharma b Ashwin 31 23 17 2 2 182.35
16.5 55.0 mph, Ashwin has got the dangerman, he pauses an eternity before delivering, waiting to see what the batsman will do, Nabi charges out to meet the delivery, looks to hammer it but edges it, loops towards mid-off where Rohit awaits 119/7

12.1 58.8 mph, Afghanistan falling apart here, Shenwari chips it back to Ashwin, and that's the third wicket in six deliveries, they are now 76 for 5, it was a length ball on middle stump, nothing dangerous about it, but that was tamely pushed back 76/5
View dismissal Shafiqullah lbw b Pathan 8 11 9 0 1 88.88
14.6 80.3 mph, that looked like a huge inside-edge there, a short of length ball on off and middle, the batsman was looking to work it to the leg side, struck on the pads but it sounded like an inside edge there, Rauf thinks there is not bat involved and lifts the finger 100/6

View dismissal Najibullah Zadran run out (†Dhoni/Balaji) 5 7 2 1 0 250.00
17.4 Balaji to Gulbadin Naib, slow bouncer this time from Balaji, looking to pull again but misses, struck on the body, Najibullah has a hamstring problem and has been struggling to run, he sets off for a single, Naib wasn't interested which meant the hobbling Najibullah has to turn back and try make his ground, the throw from Dhoni is to the bowler, Balaji collects and breaks the stumps with his arm, early enough to beat the dive from Najibullah, after many replays, the umpires are convinced it is, Afghanistan lose their eighth 125/8
View dismissal Dawlat Zadran b Balaji 8 9 5 2 0 160.00
19.3 81.1 mph, game over, Balaji finishes it off with a yorker, Afghanistan lose but they have not been disgraced, the first match of the tournament which wasn't completely one-sided 136/10
