Mohammed Shami to Mohammad Nabi, FOUR runs, drilled down the ground for four! He looks for the yorker, but misses his length, Nabi backs away and hits it straight down towards long on. Fifty for Nabi
46.3
6
Bumrah to Mohammad Nabi, SIX runs, short, and he has swung this around...for SIX! This is a serious blow from Nabi, as he uses Bumrah's pace to swing this over midwicket. Top shot, and are they pumped!
45.3

Chahal to Rashid Khan, FOUR runs, pulls out the reverse sweep! More of a swipe, but he gets into position, and goes over the point fielder. No fielder there, and that's four all the way!
44.1

Mohammed Shami to Mohammad Nabi, FOUR runs, SHOT! Makes a bit of room by advancing towards the ball to his left, and then smashes this through the vacant long off area
40.1

Mohammed Shami to Najibullah Zadran, FOUR runs, straight, and he whips it off his feet through midwicket. Terrific bit of timing from Najib!

Mohammed Shami to Najibullah Zadran, FOUR runs, up and over! Full, just outside off, and he checks a drive just over mid-off. Well placed, well timed, well executed

Chahal to Mohammad Nabi, FOUR runs, paddled fine! Full, angling down leg, and he goes down on one knee to place a sweep-shot past Kuldeep at short fine leg
32.6
4
Chahal to Mohammad Nabi, FOUR runs, length ball, wide enough for Nabi to throw his hands at it. Cut square, past Rohit at point and that's an important boundary for Afghanistan
25.4
4
Kuldeep Yadav to Rahmat Shah, FOUR runs, similar ball, but he rocks back and dinks this over midwicket. Terrific shot! This was a little slower through the air, and he did well to ease this
24.2
4
Chahal to Hashmatullah Shahidi, FOUR runs, length, and he cuts this away, and it beats the man at point, and past short third man. A little lazy in the field from India there!
21.2
4
Kuldeep Yadav to Hashmatullah Shahidi, FOUR runs, short, and he goes back and places the pull perfectly. Through the midwicket region. Slow turn, again, and that is easy pickings for the batsman on this pitch. Top shot!
20.6
4
Pandya to Rahmat Shah, FOUR runs, walks across to the leg side and whacks this through covers. An emphatic response to the tight lines being bowled by Pandya. Take that!
11.4
4
Pandya to Gulbadin Naib, FOUR runs, with disdain! Another length ball that's aimed at Naib's body, and he hammers a shot over the midwicket fielder once more. This time more powerful
11.3
4
Pandya to Gulbadin Naib, FOUR runs, shoveled over midwicket! Another length ball angling into the captain, and he hoicks it over the infield. Leg-side swipe fetches four
10.3
4
Chahal to Rahmat Shah, FOUR runs, length ball, on off, and he goes deep inside the crease before pulling over midwicket. Kuldeep, from long on, runs to his right and slides across the ground but maybe his foot was touching the rope while parrying the ball away
3.3
4
Bumrah to Hazratullah Zazai, FOUR runs, full, angles past Zazai, flies off the edge, and just evades Kohli at second slip! Fine ball, and it hurries down past third man
