Fall of wickets: 1-50 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 7.6 ov), 2-50 (Ibrahim Zadran, 8.2 ov), 3-57 (Rahmat Shah, 9.6 ov), 4-125 (Azmatullah Omarzai, 17.1 ov), 5-130 (Mohammad Nabi, 17.6 ov)
17.1 to Azmatullah Omarzai, Mukesh has Omarzai chopping on! On a length and outside off, Mukesh hides it away from the reach of the batter in these slog overs. Omarzai throws his bat at ball but can only drag it back onto his own stumps. End of Omarzai's cameo. 125/4
17.6 to Mohammad Nabi, Carved in the air and Rinku takes it at sweeper cover. Short and Mukesh hides it away from the reach of Nabi. Nabi could barely reach it. He slices it high in the air. Rinku runs in from the deep and dives forward to snag the catch. 130/5
7.6 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Axar gives India the breakthrough! Jitesh rides the bounce, gathers the ball, and takes the bails off. Gurbaz charges to Axar. The fingerspinner shortens his length and gets it to angle in, beat the inside edge, as Gurbaz swishes and misses. Jitesh does the rest. 50/1
9.6 to Rahmat Shah, Axar has Rahmat chopping on! Darted flat and quick just outside off, Rahmat backs away and aims to thrash it through the off side but does not have enough room to free his arms. He ends up dragging a thick inside edge back onto his own stumps. The drink will taste sweeter for Axar and India. 57/3
8.2 to Ibrahim Zadran, Dube strikes with his second ball. Zadran can't clear Rohit at short cover. Back of a length and outside off, Zadran aims to pump it on the up but does not get enough elevation or power to clear the infielder. 50/2

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Rohit Sharma, 0.2 ov), 2-28 (Shubman Gill, 3.5 ov), 3-72 (Tilak Varma, 8.4 ov), 4-117 (Jitesh Sharma, 13.5 ov)
3.5 to Shubman Gill, dancing shoes let him down this time. Mujeeb bowls a length ball on middle and the googly turns in. Gill comes down the track but the ball turning into him leaves him befuddled. Swings the bat across the line but there's no connection, and Gurbaz does the rest. 28/2
13.5 to JM Sharma, Mujeeb does get the breakthrough! That's why Ibrahim brought Mujeeb back. This was a length ball sliding into the batter while also getting big on him. Jitesh tried to use his bottom hand to lift it over the non-striker's head for a six at long on, but this time it doesn't have the distance. Gone after a useful 31 in 20 balls. 117/4
8.4 to NT Tilak Varma, Gulbadin with a blinder! Tilak tries to uppishly flick it over deep backward square leg after contorting his body, but Gulbadin has held on to a tough one, especially with the lights also making the ball hard to spot. Gulbadin had taken a few steps in at first but then re-adjusted to take a step back and put his hands up in time. Tilak gone for 26 trying to innovate from a fullish length.. 72/3
