    37.5 holes out to long-off. Jadhav goes horizontal with the delivery and it dips on a length outside off. Shahzad doesn't get to the pitch after stepping out and can only slice this high. Good bowling to end a high-impact innings. Shahzad returns, but he's kept Afghanistan alive 180/6
    12.4 Dhoni's whipped the stumps and this should be out. Full ball on middle stump, he looks to drive and is beaten on the inside edge. It trickles to Dhoni off the pad and the batsman isn't anywhere close to making his move backwards when the stumps are broken. 65/1
    14.4 through him! Lovely bowling from Jadeja! Length ball on off. He's been turning it away from him from there. This one goes with the arm. Rahmat jabbing outside off stump with a gap between bat and pad. Clean bowled. 81/2
    15.2 what a ball! Oh this is glorious from Kuldeep. Makes him flick against the line and spins it past the blade to have him stumped in the off side.Lovely stuff. Brett Lee on air says it's like watching Warne in the mirror. He's not wrong. This dips and drifts and lands on a length at leg stump. Shahidi doesn't get to the pitch as he closes the face and his back leg raises as a result. He has no chance 82/3
    15.3 he's on a hat-trick! Through the captain's defense! Loopy delivery on a length. Lands on middle, turns into Asghar, flicks his pads, and then crashes into leg stump 82/4
    28.4 full on middle, and he walks down the ground to flick this off his toes. Struck well actually, but struck just too well. Straight into the hands of deep backward square as Chahar takes his maiden ODI wicket! 132/5
    47.3 taken by extra cover who then bumps into mid-off as well. Kuldeep the fielder, Karthik the man running in from mid-off. They end it all with a graceful co-ordinated tumble. Nabi was looking to clear them both but once again, the offcutter gets the better of him. He's only able to chip this length ball gently in the end 244/8
    44.1 that looks plumb. The batsman reviews the lbw decision. He's been given out. Trapped in front attempting a reverse sweep and only connection with bat can save him I think...he's struck on the back thigh in front of off stump. There's no bat on this. He's gone. Three reds and the review is gone. There was hardly any doubt about that, with Jadeja's natural line 226/7

    20.3 the late finger of death from the umpire! But Rahul reviews after a consultation with DK. It was a full and fast delivery on off stump, and Rahul went for the reverse sweep. The ball landed on middle stump, and hit his back leg. Impact's definitely on middle, so now we await ball-tracking and UltraEdge. There was a slight noise as the ball passed the glove, but the umpire ignores it. Three reds say ball-tracking, and Rahul must go back! 127/2
    17.1 it's a skyer, but taken at long on! Tossed up on leg stump, and Rayudu came down the wicket to clobber this into the stands, but he's mistimed the shot on this occasion and Najibullah does well in the deep to take a difficult catch near the ropes. Rayudu walks back after an electric knock. Drinks as well. 110/1
    39.4 slow finger of death once again! Overpitched from Nabi, and the ball has hit his toe! A full-throated appeal from Nabi and the umpire raises his finger. Pitched on leg stump, and impact on leg too, but looks like the ball would've gone down leg. DK out for 44 after failing to connect with a straight ball 205/6
    25.5 given lbw! India don't have a review left. He's looked to play the flick, but he's caught on the pad in front of off stump. It's big stride through and there's a chance this could have spun down leg. But the umpire didn't think so and he will go. Ahmadi is excited with the wicket. he's hurt his wrists while punching the air He's been struck by short fine's throw on his wrist. Replays show that was missing leg stump 142/3
    30.3 caught behind. A thin edge as Pandey slashes away from the body. It's a length ball, there's lots of width and the shot is on. But his feet have barely moved and he is gone 166/4
    38.5 run-out appeal at the non-striker's end. This was a length ball that rolled back down the pitch off the leading edge. Mujeeb looked really confident after getting a touch on this...Jadhav is in a strange position! And he's out. He is front-on, facing the batsman, and is flapping his left hand backwards in panic when this hits the stumps. Doesn't have the mobility for it. He's gone. 204/5
    49.5 back of a length outside off, and this spins into Jadeja. He mistimes a pull, and the ball goes straight in the air! Taken at midwicket, and the game is tied! The Indians are disappointed as Afghanistan celebrate. There's no Super Over folks. That's only for the final. Rashid takes a wicket off his worst delivery of the match, but Jadeja was cramped, and therefore paid the price. The Afghans celebrate as if they've won. The Indians are shell-shocked in the pavillion. 252/10
    44.5 cleans him up! Full and straight, and Chahar misses the leg-side flick. Gap between bat and pad, and the delivery sneaks through his defense! Hits his front leg, and then crashes into the stumps. 226/7
    48.1 full on leg stump, and Kuldeep backs away and drives through the covers. Great impact off the bat and they're coming back for the third. Could be dangerous as the throw is flat from the deep. The bowler collects the ball and throws down the stumps at the bowler's end before Kuldeep can complete the third. Importantly that's two runs, and the strike is with Jadeja, but Kuldeep must walk back 242/8
    48.5 full and straight on middle stump, and that's been driven to mid on for a quick single. Hashmatullah picks the ball up and releases it super fast, and his throw gets the direct hit! The umpire goes up to the third umpire.. .and Kaul is short! India are nine down. 245/9
