India vs Afghanistan, T20 World Cup 2024 Highlights: Suryakumar Yadav scored 53 off 28 balls after which Jasprit Bumrah posted imperious figures of 3/7 as India beat Afghanistan by 47 runs to start off their Super 8 campaign in the 2024 T20 World Cup. Suryakumar put up a 60-run stand off just 37 balls with Hardik Pandya for the fifth wicket. Axar Patel then smashed 12 runs in six balls to take India to a score of 181/8....Read More

Earlier, Afghanistan's bowlers did not allow India to fly off to a strong start after Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bat first. Rohit fell to Fazalhaq Farooqi in the third over after which Rashid Khan dismissed Rishabh Pant and Virat Kohli after the powerplay. Kohli was looking to play deep but ended up holing out at long-off on a run-a-ball 24.

Suryakumar took over after Kohli's dismissal and he eventually found a steady partner in Pandya. The latter eventually fell on 32 off 24 in the 18th over. India's bowlers then took over with Bumrah dismissing both of Afghanistan's openers in his first two overs. India had brought on an extra spinner in Kuldeep Yadav and the move reaped dividends with the Afghanistan batters being starved for runs in the middle overs. Afghanistan lost three wickets in the powerplay and the rest of the collapse came after the 10th over. Arshdeep Singh and Jasprit Bumrah took three wickets each. While Arshdeep gave 36 runs, Bumrah gave just seven in his four overs, an eye-watering economy of 1.75.

India vs Afghanistan Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs AFG: 'important for us to use Bumrah smartly,' says Rohit

India vs Afghanistan Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs AFG: “The last two years, we have come here (the West Indies) and played some T20 games. We planned a little well. We adapted well to the conditions that were offered. We knew the class of our bowling line up will defend this. Everyone coming in and doing their job. That is something we keep talking about. Surya and Hardik's partnership was a good one in the end. We know what Bumrah can do for us. It is important for us to use him smartly. He is the one who is ready to take the responsibility as well. Whereever he plays, he is always ready to take the responsibility. I got to assess the conditions. Looking at the opposition we are ready to make any changes. We thought three spinners would be good, we went for that. Going forward if needed, I am open to playing three seamers.”

I think you just need to know your game plan, and just play accordingly. I still remember when Hardik came in to the bat, I told him let's bat with the same intent. Let's keep pressing the pedal and keep pushing, in the end very happy with a score of 180.”

India vs Afghanistan Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs AFG: Pitch report

India vs Afghanistan Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs AFG: Sunil Gavaskar on the pitch report today. Lovely weather conditions, he says. 58m, 67m square boundaries, 70m down the ground. It looks a really good pitch with a few cracks on it. The ball should come on to the bat nicely and the bowlers need to bowl in the right areas. Batters should prosper on this wicket. A bat first pitch.

India vs Afghanistan Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs AFG: Like Kohli, Rohit doesn't have too many games at the Kensington Oval but what he has played is more than his opening partner. Rohit has played an ODI and two T20Is here, both of which were in the 2010 T20 World Cup. He scored an unbeaten 79 in 46 balls against Australia in a match where only Harbhajan Singh was the other Indian batter who got a double digit score apart from him, and the latter had scored just 13 runs.
