    14.2 GONE! The lack of patience proves to be Rahul's undoing. Pulls out the reverse sweep, but miscues it straight to short third man. Comfortable, low catch for Zazai, and India are two down inside the first 15 overs! 64/2
    4.2 clips the top of off stump! Lands at length, on off stump, and Rohit prods forward to defend the ball that drifts in. But the ball grips the deck, turns across Rohit, and it's through his defense! What a beautiful sight for Afghanistan fans. A rare failure for Rohit 7/1
    30.3 that's the big one! A bit of extra bounce on a regulation off-break, that Kohli shapes to cut away. Gets the upper edge and it scoops up for point inside the circle. Rahmat Shah dives foward and completes the catch. Well? If India wanted to find out how well they can ride out a rough situation, they've got one now! 135/4
    26.1 stretches to a length ball, and given out leg before! They are reviewing this, though. Straightened after pitching around leg stump, there's no evidence of an inside edge either. Pitches in line, and impact in line, and umpire's call on the verdict. India retain the review, but Tabrez pulls off a massive jinx! Was beaten trying to sweep 122/3
    44.3 gone! Full, fast outside off, and turning further away. Dhoni skips down the wicket to lift it over Rashid, but he misses the legbreak, and that's the end of the Indian wicketkeeper. Only second time MSD has been stumped in ODIs 192/5
    49.5 soft dismissal! Length ball, outside off, and Jadhav tries to muscle a punch over the infield. Doesn't have the elevation, and taken at cover. Another back-of-the-hand delivery 223/8
    48.4 slower ball does the trick! Short, on off, and Hardik backs away to ramp it over the keeper. Edged to Ali Khil. Soft dismissal 217/6
    49.3 got 'im! And Naib brings his guns out under the sun. Back of the hand slower ball, full on leg, and Shami can't resist a slog. Ball whizzes under his bat, and knocks back leg stump 222/7

    6.3 GONE! Through the gate, as Zazai swings for the midwicket fence. It was full, fast and just not there for that choice of shot! Zazai's struggles against Shami come to an end, as he eventually loses patience 20/1
    16.5 sliced - and taken by Mr 3D! Short on off, cramping the batsman for space, and the pull has gone in the air. Shankar runs in from deep midwicket, and takes a simple catch running forward 64/2
    28.4 short, and he has looked to hook this away, and holed out! Top edge as he has to fetch this from outside off, and Chahal runs in from fine leg and takes a low catch, diving forward. Throws the ball up in air in jubilation, because boy did they need this lift! It's the number one bowler in the world who delivers for Kohli 106/3
    28.6 TWO FOR BUMRAH! Digs in a short-of-a-length ball, angled into Shahidi, who jumps as he tries to negotiate this. It runs off the outside of the bat and pops back up for Bumrah, who takes the catch and celebrates. What an over this is from Jasprit Bumrah! 106/4
    34.6 big wicket! Full, on off, and Asghar goes for a wild slog. Down on one knee, playing across the line, and the ball skids through to clip off stump. A huge 'c'mon' from Chahal after that dismissal 130/5
    49.3 yorker, and he has hit this down long on's throat! India come close to winning a thriller! Shami chases Nabi as he backs away, and plays a lofted drive, but it goes down Pandya's throat. India surely favourites from here? 213/8
    41.3 this time Chahal takes it! Slow, off-cutter from Pandya, and Najib shapes to flick this, but takes it off the inner part of the bat. Pops up for Chahal at short mid wicket. Pandya blows a kiss to the outgoing batsman 166/6
    45.4 tossed up, and Dhoni has whipped the bails off. Rashid is walking! The turn from outside off takes it past the outside edge, and Dhoni waits on it, and just takes the bails off. Chahal strikes in this last over of his, and what a wicket that could be! 190/7

    49.4 THROUGH THE DEFENCE! Yorker, and he has got this perfectly. Alam backs away and tries to swipe this down the ground, but it crashes into middle and leg. Fast, straight and deathly accurate! 213/9
    49.5 that's the hat-trick! Full, fast, and goes through the batsman again. Chetan Sharma did it in 1987, and 32 years on, here's Mohammad Shami, finishing off with two perfect yorkers, to win it for India! Mujeeb backs away and tries to go down the ground, but there was searing accuracy about that ball. India get their 50th World Cup win with that, but well played Afghanistan! 213/10
