Mohammed Shami to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, OUT, that's the hat-trick! Full, fast, and goes through the batsman again. Chetan Sharma did it in 1987, and 32 years on, here's Mohammad Shami, finishing off with two perfect yorkers, to win it for India! Mujeeb backs away and tries to go down the ground, but there was searing accuracy about that ball. India get their 50th World Cup win with that, but well played Afghanistan!

Mujeeb Ur Rahman b Mohammed Shami 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Mohammed Shami to Aftab Alam, OUT, THROUGH THE DEFENCE! Yorker, and he has got this perfectly. Alam backs away and tries to swipe this down the ground, but it crashes into middle and leg. Fast, straight and deathly accurate!

Aftab Alam b Mohammed Shami 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Mohammed Shami to Mohammad Nabi, OUT, yorker, and he has hit this down long on's throat! India come close to winning a thriller! Shami chases Nabi as he backs away, and plays a lofted drive, but it goes down Pandya's throat. India surely favourites from here?

Mohammad Nabi c Pandya b Mohammed Shami 52 (105m 55b 4x4 1x6) SR: 94.54

Chahal to Rashid Khan, OUT, tossed up, and Dhoni has whipped the bails off. Rashid is walking! The turn from outside off takes it past the outside edge, and Dhoni waits on it, and just takes the bails off. Chahal strikes in this last over of his, and what a wicket that could be!

Rashid Khan st †Dhoni b Chahal 14 (20m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Pandya to Najibullah Zadran, OUT, this time Chahal takes it! Slow, off-cutter from Pandya, and Najib shapes to flick this, but takes it off the inner part of the bat. Pops up for Chahal at short mid wicket. Pandya blows a kiss to the outgoing batsman

Najibullah Zadran c Chahal b Pandya 21 (32m 23b 2x4 0x6) SR: 91.30

Chahal to Asghar Afghan, OUT, big wicket! Full, on off, and Asghar goes for a wild slog. Down on one knee, playing across the line, and the ball skids through to clip off stump. A huge 'c'mon' from Chahal after that dismissal

Asghar Afghan b Chahal 8 (33m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.10

Bumrah to Hashmatullah Shahidi, OUT, TWO FOR BUMRAH! Digs in a short-of-a-length ball, angled into Shahidi, who jumps as he tries to negotiate this. It runs off the outside of the bat and pops back up for Bumrah, who takes the catch and celebrates. What an over this is from Jasprit Bumrah!

Hashmatullah Shahidi c & b Bumrah 21 (53m 45b 2x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

Bumrah to Rahmat Shah, OUT, short, and he has looked to hook this away, and holed out! Top edge as he has to fetch this from outside off, and Chahal runs in from fine leg and takes a low catch, diving forward. Throws the ball up in air in jubilation, because boy did they need this lift! It's the number one bowler in the world who delivers for Kohli

Rahmat Shah c Chahal b Bumrah 36 (94m 63b 3x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Pandya to Gulbadin Naib, OUT, sliced - and taken by Mr 3D! Short on off, cramping the batsman for space, and the pull has gone in the air. Shankar runs in from deep midwicket, and takes a simple catch running forward

Gulbadin Naib c Shankar b Pandya 27 (78m 42b 2x4 0x6) SR: 64.28

Mohammed Shami to Hazratullah Zazai, OUT, GONE! Through the gate, as Zazai swings for the midwicket fence. It was full, fast and just not there for that choice of shot! Zazai's struggles against Shami come to an end, as he eventually loses patience

Hazratullah Zazai b Mohammed Shami 10 (32m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.66
