Team India posted a massive 181-run total after winning the toss and opting to bat first at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. The proceedings were yet again begun with skipper Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli opening, however, none of the two batters could play break their shackles.

Rohit Sharma perished in the 3rd over against Fazalhaq Farooqi, while Virat continued to bat as he paired with Rishabh Pant. The two added 43 runs to the total before Pant was dismissed. Soon Kohli also departed with his run-a-ball 24.

Suryakumar Yadav once again shone and prepared a launchpad for India’s innings. The batter scored a sublime 28-ball 53 before getting dismissed in the 17th over. Meanwhile, for a brief period, SKY partnered with Shivam Dube (10 runs) and Hardik Pandya (32 runs).

While Dube couldn’t get his mojo as he got trapped lbw by Rashid Khan, all-rounder Hardik Pandya did play some shots and accelerated India’s score with his 24-ball 32. To finish things off Axar Patel added handy 12 runs in 6 deliveries to post 181 runs.

Pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi and skipper Rashid Khan scalped three wickets each and Naveen ul Haq also got one in his bag.

With 181 to chase, Afghanistan needed a solid show at the top order. However, Jasprit Bumrah and Axar Patel spoiled the plans by providing three initial breakthroughs inside the powerplay. The likes of Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Hazratullah Zazai were picked by Bumrah and Axar got Ibrahim Zadran in the 4th over.

Gulbadin Naib (17 runs) and Azmatullah Omarzai (26 runs) rescued the innings, but they too couldn’t hold their nerves for long as Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav struck with two wickets in consecutive overs.

With half the team already in the hut, Afghanistan was close to a tormenting defeat. But, they somehow survived till the end. The likes of Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan and Noor Ahmed played some shots, but the effort was too minute in front of the gigantic task they had in front.

Eventually, Afghanistan lost the contest by 47 runs as Team India restricted them to a score of 134 runs in 20 overs. Afghanistan had lost 9 of their wickets during the process.

Let’s now take a look at the T20 World Cup 2024 Points Table after IND vs AFG | Updated Super 8 Points Table.
