Khaleel Ahmed1014514.50383210
47.3 to Mohammad Nabi, 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
Deepak Chahar403719.25123221
28.4 to Gulbadin Naib, 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
Siddarth Kaul905806.44264310
Ravindra Jadeja1014634.60383210
12.4 to Javed Ahmadi, 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 to Rahmat Shah, 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
44.1 to Najibullah Zadran, 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
Kuldeep Yadav1003823.80392100
15.2 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, 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 to Asghar Afghan, 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
Kedar Jadhav702713.85272100
37.5 to Mohammad Shahzad, 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

Aftab Alam1005325.30304101
30.3 to MK Pandey, 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
44.5 to DL Chahar, 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
Mujeeb Ur Rahman1014304.30332110
Gulbadin Naib4041010.2573300
Mohammad Nabi1004024.00321010
17.1 to AT Rayudu, 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 to KD Karthik, 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
Rashid Khan9.504124.16355010
20.3 to KL Rahul, 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
49.5 to RA Jadeja, 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
Javed Ahmadi401914.7581000
25.5 to MS Dhoni, 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
