Yuzvendra Chahal strikes for India, sends Rashid Khan back and helps India edge close towards victory.
Hardik Pandya sends N Zadran back !! India right back in the game.
Half of the Afghanistani side is back in the hut. Time for India to pressurize their neighbors as they require more than 6 runs an over from here on.
Bumrah bowls a 0 0 0 0 W 0 W over, India back in a commanding position
India in a spot of bother as Rahmat and Hashmatullah settled well on the crease.

Indian spinners will play a huge role in deciding the result of the match. Can Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal spin the match in India's favor?
Well bowled #afg .. This match will test Indian bowlers.. great match ahead ... till now #afg hasn't played as expected.. today they have best chance prove themselves.. india may miss Jadeja today .#INDvAFG— gireesh kulkarni (@gireeshkulkarn2) June 22, 2019
The famed Indian batting lineup has struggled for the first time in the World Cup 2019! And that too against a splendid Afghanistan spin attack

Top class bowling performance from Afghanistan as they restrict India to 213/5 with 2 overs to go
I think they should have rotated strike more often.— Sridhar M Arun (@SridharArun21) June 22, 2019
If you're good enough to defend and play dot balls, I'm sure you're good enough to get singles atleast.
Nevertheless, credit to the spin department of Afghanistan.#JustSaying #INDvAFG
MS Dhoni and Kedar Jhadav taking things slow right now with the main focus being on building a good partnership
MS Dhoni 8 off 28 balls and Kedar Jadhav 12 from 23 balls should definitely get a move on
All of us Virat Kohli fans right now...
Virat Kohli seems to be failing to score the centuries these days. He loses his wicket for 67, what a breakthrough for Afghanistan.
This emotional tweet by an Indian fan had us wondering.... We love you Thala Dhoni!
Vijay Shankar trapped LBW, falls for 29. The all-rounder missed a golden opportunity to cement his No. 4 spot in the team.
Vijay Shankar trying to play a calm an collected innings is troubling some anzious Indian fans.
Yes we agree and many more to come
Captain Virat Kohli brings up his 52nd ODI half century off 48 balls.
Maybe he should ask for a refund from Rohit Sharma?
There was a huge expectation for Rishabh Pant to be playing in today's ODI. this user gives a valid reason
#INDvAFG india should have played @RishabPant777 instead of @vijayshankar260 ...1. we need a left handed in middle order 2. Two much slow batters are there we need a striker like @hardikpandya7 @vikrantgupta73 @cricketaakash @imVkohli— kabeer (@kabeer12690) June 22, 2019
KL Rahul throws away his wicket while trying to play a needless reverse sweep to Nabi. Rahul scored 30 runs.
KL Rahul don't try to be AB devilliers #INDvAFG— Venky (@Leg_Cutter) June 22, 2019
When you love youyr IPL player but are rooting for India to win. (PS. Mujeeb plays for Kings XI Punjab)
India Playing XI:
KL Rahul, RG Sharma, V Kohli*, V Shankar, MS Dhoni†, HH Pandya, KM Jadhav, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, YS Chahal, JJ Bumrah.
"Karnataka, Mumbai, Delhi, TN, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Baroda, UP, Bengal, Haryana and Gujarat. 11 players from 11 Ranji sides. "
After that mamoth 140 against Pakistan, Rohit Sharma falls for just 1 run against Afghanistan.
Aghanistan pull off a surprise by bowling a leg-spinner in the first over agaisnt KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma.
