The Indian team had already reached the final but the match for Afghanistan, which is out of the tournament, is no less than any victory.

India needed seven runs in the last over, Rashid Khan for Afghanistan came up with the last over. Ravindra Jadeja (25) was in front, and forcing the ball to the other with a chaufin on the other ball, he forced the Indian audience to hang on happily. But Rashid’s spinning spell was still the same. Jadeja took a single on the next ball and Khalil Ahmed came on strike. He gave the single ball to the strikers and gave Jadeja to the strike. Needing 1 for India on two balls but Jadeja was playing in the hands of the only player standing outside the 30-yard line.

 

Aftab Alam, Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan took two wickets each for Afghanistan.

Going to achieve the target of 253 runs, Lokesh Rahul and Ambati Rayudu, the first wicket for India, gave a fantastic start of 110 runs. At the time both of them were on the field, it seemed that India would make the match very easy. But after the break of the pair, Afghanistan’s spinners took charge.

 

After playing the innings of 57 runs in 49 balls, Rayudu was trapped by Mohammad on the boundary of the Prophet’s hand. In his innings, Rayudu hit four fours and a fine six. After losing some of the couple, Rahul also walked on. Prior to Rashid Khan’s LBW ball, Rahul scored 60 runs in 66 balls, including five fours and a six.

 

After losing both openers on 127, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (8) and Dinesh Karthik had a big responsibility but Dhoni left the pavilion with LBW on Javed Ahmadi delivery. However, if India had a review, Dhoni would have been safe on the field as the ball was going out of the wicket.

 

After Dhoni’s dismissal, Manish Pandey (8) came on the field but did not stay long on the field. On the total of 166, the Indian team had lost four of their major batsmen and the team’s hopes were once again on Kartik. With Kedar Jadhav (19), they shared 38 runs and reached India 200. It seemed as if India could easily make the match, but at the same time, Jadhav was run out on non-striking end on the shot of Kartik.

 

The biggest blow to India’s hopes was given by the prophet in his ninth over. LBW was contracted on the Kartik Sidhi ball, which was going for the fifties, though the ball looked like leaving the wicket. Ravindra Jadeja and Deepak Chahar tried to push the innings with peace but after the victory of 27 runs before the win, the Indian fence got intensified.

Kuldeep scored 9 runs and ran out. When Kuldeep was dismissed, India needed 11 runs from 11 balls. Just three runs were added to the score that Siddharth Kaul was run out without runs and paved the way for pavilion. The expectations were from Jadeja but in the end a ball was finished on the match tie with his dismissal first.
