India lose Sharma early against Afghanistan

However, Shami responded in style, and once he removed Nabi, ten and 11 left in successive balls to end a tense contest in dramatic fashion. "We knew these guys were hungry", he said.

Afghanistan seemed well placed to cause an historic upset against their superpower rivals when they reached the final over needing 16 runs to win with three wickets in hand, and with Mohammad Nabi approaching a half century at the crease.

"This is right up there (as a win)".

"At the halfway stage, we had our doubts in our minds, but we also had self-belief in the change rooms". KL Rahul, the other opener, struggled to come to grips with the dual pace of the pitch, too, and when he tried to manufacture something, he spliced a reverse-sweep off Nabi to short third man. We can take a lot of heart from this win because you cannot expect to win every game comfortably. So, Kuldeep and I planned of bowling dot balls for the first few overs and then if we take the run-rate above 6 runs an over, we had bowlers like Shami and Bumrah. Only five times did the two spinners beat Afghanistan's batsmen - not the best players of spin - in the 20 overs. "You can go wrong with that sometimes, but you will have to keep thinking as to what the batsman is going to do next", said Chahal.

This is India's lowest first innings total batting all 50 overs since 2010.

"We saw the wicket getting slower and slower".

Court orders abortion on disabled woman
The origin of the pregnancy, whether it was conceived consensually or not, is unknown and under police investigation. The woman was said to be in her 20s, but has developmental disabilities and the mental age of a nine-year-old.

"What we wanted to do was that when you run behind wickets, you don't get wickets".

If Sri Lanka's victory over Eoin Morgan's side caused a few World Cup tremors, this game nearly set off a cricketing natural disaster of impressive magnitude.

Afghanistan wobbled early in their chase, losing Hazratullah Zazai in the seventh over but they made slow, steady progress even after Gulbadin Naib fell for 27. He stuck to his familiar template of blocking out spinners and waiting for the weak links in Afghanistan's attack - Naib and Alam.

Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal (2-36) then castled Asghar Afghan (8) as Afghanistan sunk to 130-5, but Nabi, who was supported by Najbullah Zadran (21) and Rashid (14), kept his side believing, even more so when he successfully overturned an lbw dismissal against Shami in the 48th over with the ball shown to have struck him outside the line.

"The total was not that much (to chase) but in the middle, we needed some 80s and 100s, 20s and 30s aren't enough against a team like this".

"We have lost four games very badly, but the last two games we have played really well. This is tough cricket against high-ranking teams, and you have to fight your best".
