Other than Virat’s century, KL Rahul also scored 62 runs off 41 balls with six boundaries and two sixes on his credit. Thanks to these amazing knocks, India posted a big total of 212 runs for the loss of only two wickets. Fareed Ahmed was the only bowler who scalped two wickets for Afghanistan.

While chasing the target, Ibrahim Zadran remained the only batter who played a struggling knock of 64 runs. Other than him, no batter played any fine knock and their batting order collapsed. Afghanistan could score only 111 runs for the loss of eight wickets in eight overs. Eventually, India won the match by a mammoth margin of 101 runs.
