    IND 131/4 in 16 overs

    Saleem. Rohit comes across and hit the ball past fine leg for four! Once again goes across, short ball and pulls it over square leg for a SIX! No ball. Rohit must be happy this time as once again it was a near waist height ball and umpire calls for a free-hit. A wide ball so Saleem will have to re-bowl that. Single. Rohit tries to go for a slog but ends up edging the ball first on the helmet grill and then towards short third. Cracking shot by Rinku to end the over.

    IND 104/4 in 14 overs

    Saleem is back. A double and that’s 100 runs on board for India. Rohit isn’t happy with an umpire’s decision over a no-ball. He thinks the ball was over his waist but isn’t able to convince the umpire. 

  • January 17, 2024 20:03
    IND 97/4 in 13 overs

    And now, Rohit sweeps Qais for four! Everything is coming together for him now. Half-volley and Rinku hits it straight over the bowler’s head for a SIX! Another reverse sweep for four by Rohit and he gets to his fifty by that shot!

    IND 81/4 in 12 overs

  • January 17, 2024 19:55
    IND 65/4 in 11 overs

    Qais continues. Rohit continues his attempts at sweeps, this time the orthodox one but for the same result. Indian batters unable to find boundaries regularly.

    IND 61/4 in 10 overs

    Sharafuddin Ashraf for his first over. Half-tracker by the left arm spinner and Rinku smacks it towards midwicket for four. Nine runs from the over.

  • January 17, 2024 19:44
    IND 52/4 in 9 overs

    Qais continues. A long appeal against Rinku for an LBW. Umpire took at least 10-12 seconds before raising his finger. Rinku has opted for DRS. There’s a faint edge when the ball passes the bat. Not out. Rohit is still trying to perfect his reverse sweep against Qais. Unable to so far. 

  • January 17, 2024 19:38
    IND 48/4 in 8 overs

    Right arm quick Mohammad Saleem into the attack now. SHOT! Absolutely brilliant pick up shot by Rinku Singh for a SIX. On the pads and Rinku picks it very quickly. Slower bouncer and this time Rohit pulls it towards square leg for another maximum.

    IND 34/4 in 7 overs

    Qais Ahmad with his leg-spin. Rohit has attempted two reverse sweeps but couldn’t time even one. Qais drops it short and Rohit this time pulls towards midwicket for four. 

  • January 17, 2024 19:29
    IND 30/4 in 6 overs

    Omarzai. Wide on the length and Rohit cuts it past point for four. Rohit comes down the track, goes for a wild slog but is beaten. Rinku is off the mark with a double. PowerPlay is done. 

  • January 17, 2024 19:23
    IND 22/4 in 5 overs

    Ahmad continues. Bowls a bouncer, Rohit goes for a pull but is beaten. Sanju Samson is the new man in. OUT! Samson gets a golden duck! Goes for a pull, top edge and Nabi once again takes a good catch. 

    Rinku Singh is here now. Just a single and a wicket in that over. 

  • January 17, 2024 19:18
    IND 21/3 in 4 overs

    Omarzai continues. A great start for Afghanistan here. Now Rohit launches but doesn’t time that well. However, the ball lands safely in front of the mid-on fielder who had to run behind. OUT! Dube is gone! He gets an edge and a great catch by wicketkeeper. 

  • January 17, 2024 19:10
    IND 19/2 in 3 overs

    Rohit begins the Ahmad over with a four! This time from the middle of the bat, cut over point. OUT! Jaiswal hits one in the air. It’s too high but a very well-judged catch by Mohammed Nabi who had to run behind from the short midwicket area. 

    Virat Kohli at the crease now. First ball duck for Kohli!! Back of the length ball, he goes for a pull but ended up hitting it straight to mid-off. 

    Now Shivam Dube. Six runs and two wickets in that over. 

  • January 17, 2024 19:06
    IND 13/0 in 2 overs

    Azmatullah Omarzai from the other end. Jaiswal takes a single on the first ball. Rohit is finally off the mark on the seventh ball. Although, on replay, he did get an edge off the bat that went to the boundary. A very tidy over for Afghanistan. Just two runs off it. 

  • January 17, 2024 18:59
    IND 11/0 in 1 over

    Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal open the innings. Fareed Ahmad with the new ball. 

    Wide and short, Jaiswal punches it past extra covers but slow outfield helps the Afghan fielders to cut it down to just three. On the leg of Rohit and the ball goes fine for four. Leg byes for four! Another leg bye for four! Still not off the mark but India has a good first over. 

  • January 17, 2024 18:47
    Also, guess who dropped by to meet the Indian team during yesterday’s practice?

    Pitch report

    There’s an uneven covering of grass across the pitch. Could be a little two-paced, says Nick Knight. Teams would ideally want to chase here.
