Despite winning the toss, Afghanistan did not appear to be promising, as they got off to a poor start and subsequently lost wickets, not even establishing small partnerships between the wickets so far. India’s chances of reaching the semi-finals are slowly fading.
So far AFG lost 4-wickets, Boult chose Hazratullah Zazai 2 (4) as his first victim, Milne made a break from his end after picking Mohammad Shahzad 4 (11), Southee opened his account by dismissing Rahmanullah Gurbaz 6 (9), and Ish Sodhi grabbed Gulbadin Naib 15. (18). Observing the wickets, Afghanistan struggled to form a partnership and failed to post a double-digit score too.
AFG will boost its innings only with Najibullah Zadran on 50* (33). On the other hand, Kane Williamson’s tactics of changing bowlers at regular intervals were fantastic.
