Afghanistan will be looking forward to win their first match of the World Cup 2019 after they restricted Indian team to 224 runs.

India next take on West indies, Bangladesh are next up Afghanistan.

India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first against Afghanistan in the Cricket World Cup group game at.

The rest of India´s powerful top order all got established, with Kohli making 67 from 63 balls, but none went on to play a decisive innings for the two-time champions. Rohit Sharma (1) was out in the fifth over.

Only the second time MS Dhoni has been stumped in an ODI.

With the team score on 20, Mohammad Shami got Hazratullah Zazai's wicket as he bowled him for 10.

Then came the double blow in the 29th over.

The 2019 iPhone lineup hasn't even been revealed yet but we might already know what next year's iPhones will look like too. As such, it appears that the change hasn't slowed down Apple's plans to have 5G iPhones ready by 2020.

MS Dhoni laboured to 28 off 52 balls (3x4) bringing back to memory the days when he was questioned for his slow pace in the twilight of his career. The floodgates opened after that and India never let up on the pressure after that.

But a spirited Afghanistan, who kept behind their huge loss to England in the last game, rode on Mohammed Nabi's 2/33 and wickets each for Mujeeb Ur Rahman (1/26), Rashid Khan (1/38) and Rahmat Shah (1/22) to keep the run-flow in check throughout the innings.

His 49th over was also integral in India's victory.

India had made just one change to their line-up after their win against arch rivals Pakistan, with seam bowler Mohammed Shami replacing the injured Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

What a way to end it @MdShami11! But an over later, Dhoni almost ran Jadhav out (had the fielder not slipped while receiving the throw, India would not have gotten anywhere almost their eventual score) before getting stumped off Rashid. And it really didn't seem like it would be Shami's day when he ran in to bowl the third-to-last over - with 24 runs needed - and his LBW shout against Nabi was reversed by the third umpire (the impact indeed was outside the off stump).

Such was India's batting day on Saturday and, more significantly, such was the nature of the Southampton wicket. Bumrah was superb at the death - in the last two, three overs. 30s are not enough to cross the line. "We'll have to be on our A game and put in another precise performance". Still, there was no reason to panic just yet for into the Rose Bowl walked Virat Kohli. "It is a good thing we played out 50 overs".
