End of Over 12: Some sloppy backing up by Afghanistan fielders allows Kohli to snatch an extra run when it only should have been a single. Six runs off the over, including a wide as well .
India’s fifty comes up in 11.3 overs.
End of Over 10: First Powerplay ends, and Virat (20* off 12) is looking very powerful indeed, though Bangladesh won’t mind either with the way they have started. 41/1
End of Over 8: Kohli (15* off 9) has taken off, hits Aftab for two consecutive fours — first a flick off his pads and then square of the wicket. 34/1
End of Over 6: Rahul (16*) gets going with two fours, but very lucky on the second one, which was an edge that went away from the slip fielders before crossing the fence. The bowler Aftab can consider himself unlucky there. 18/1
Skipper Virat Kohli walks in at his customary No. 3 position.
4.2 overs: WICKET! Rohit (1 off 10) is cleaned up by Mujeeb. 7/1
End of Over 4: A maiden from Aftab. This is a good start from the Afghan new-ball bowlers. 7/0
End of Over 3: A little error from Rahul, tried to make room to hit Mujeeb over the covers, but ended up mis-timing and hitting in the air, inches away from the short mid-wicket fielder. 7/0
End of Over 2: No intentions from Rohit and Rahul to play any big shots, happy to knock the ball around for ones and twos to get their eye in. 6/0
Aftab to use the other new ball, running in to bowl to KL Rahul.
End of Over 1: Decent first six balls from off-spinner Mujeeb, backed by a lot of chirping from behind the stumps. India 3/1.
Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul walk out to open for India, and Afghanistan are starting with the spin of Mujeeb to surprise the Indian openers.

NAIB: Wanted to bat first. It’s will be a long day, looking forward to the end of the day. Noor Ali not playing, Hazrat in the side. Dawlat also not playing, Aftab in the side. Happy with batting performance against England, playing the fifty overs.
KOHLI: Going to bat first. Looks like a really good wicket. Nice and hard. Beautiful day to play cricket. One forced change. Bhuvi out and Shami in. Vijay showed a lot of composure in the last game. Brings balance with bat and ball and he’s good as anyone in the world in the field. Whether we’re playing a team which is very strong or a team coming up the ranks, our mindset is the same. Can’t take Afghanistan lightly. Dangerous side when they get in the groove. Can’t take any team lightly in the World Cup. Focus is within our group, what we want to do.
Virat Kohli wins the toss and India decide to bat. Shami comes in to replace Bhuvi. Vijay Shankar is fit and stays in the playing XI. No room for Rishabh Pant.

A lot has happened since India’s last match against Pakistan. Shikhar Dhawan has flown back home with a fractured thumb, Rishabh Pant has joined the squad as Dhawan’s replacement and Vijay Shankar had his toe crushed by a Bumrah yorker in the nets.
