Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

6.51pm We’ve had a few good games in this World Cup already, but today was arguably the most thrilling contest thus far. Afghanistan come close to registering their first win of the campaign, and it took a fighting performance from two-time champions India to deny them. For the moment, from Thilak Gowda, Sreshth Shah, Andrew Fidel Fernando, Nagraj Gollapudi and Melinda Farrell, this is Debayan Sen saying goodbye and goodnight. Keep following ESPNcricinfo, where West Indies are putting on a great show in chasing their target against New Zealand. Can the other unbeaten streak come to an end? Find out on ESPNcricinfo, but bye from Southampton!

Virat Kohli: “This is right up there (as a win). You win the toss, and you decide to bat and then you see the wicket slow down. You think 260 or 270 would be a good total. At the halfway stage, we had our doubts in our minds, but we also had self-belief in the change rooms. As soon as I went in, I understood the pace of the pitch. Cross-batted shots aren’t on, and a lot of horizontal bat shots cost us on this pitch. You can’t take the game away from the opposition. You have to knock the ball around, and with three quality wrist-spinners, it was always difficult. (On Bumrah) It’s simple – we want to use him smartly. When conditions allow us to. When he takes one or two wickets, he can go on, but otherwise we try to ensure the opposition knows that he has seven or so overs to go. (Bench strength) Everyone’s waiting for an opportunity. Shami was really good today. He was making the ball move more than anybody. Vijay fielded with great intent. We knew these guys were hungry. This game was way more important for us, because things didn’t go as planned. That’s when you need to show character and bounce back.”

Gulbadin Naib: “We bowled really well, and everybody in the batting lineup was strong. We did well in the batting too, but credit goes to Bumrah for the way he bowled in the last three overs. He was superb. (On his bowling) The wicket was really good for batting during the first half. The spinners stuck to the plan, and they did really well. We had other options than Rashid and Mujeeb, but in the backend, Aftab and I also bowled well, but India is a good side, and a favourite side. 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. When chasing 220s, you need some batsmen to take responsibility and go longer. We have lost four games very badly, but last two games we have played really well. This is tough cricket against high-ranking teams, and you have to fight your best.”

6.41pm Zahed: “Nabi should have been given the MoM award for his 2wickets and a fighting 50 and taking it to last over. Well fone AFG! PROUD to be a cricket fan when teams show character.” — Probably would have won had he taken his team over the line

6.40pm Shabd Wahal: “Chetan Sharma took Hat trick in 1987 and India lost to England in semis. Can India reverse the trend in England?”

6.38pm Aravind: “How contrasting! Afghanistan dominated with spin and India dominated with sheer pace and yorkers”

India have squeezed through, but at Old Trafford, Chris Gayle is teeing off. Hop over to that match to follow

Chetan Sharma, 1987

Jasprit Bumrah is the player of the match, tells Pommie Mbangwa: “That gives you a lot of confidence when the captain has so much trust in you. Helps me keep a clearer head. (What he had to do today) We saw the wicket getting slower and slower. You had to be accurate and it’s a big ground, so you had go for the yorkers and bowl wicket-to-wicket. What we wanted to do was that when you run behind wickets, you don’t get wickets. Our plan was to get the run-rate high and create chances. (On Shami) That’s very good, because it gives us healthy competition within the side. We discuss what the plans are, and it’s great when everybody is chipping in with wickets.”

6.33pm What a thriller in Southampton today. Afghanistan come closest to breaking India’s unbreaten run at the 2019 World Cup, but India show some character with the ball. Restricted to just 224, they needed wickets, and their bowlers did the job in some style. Shami with four wickets, Bumrah bowling excellently towards the end — Shiva Jayaraman tells me he nailed seven yorkers in his last two overs, and nine in the match overall — with the spinners doing their work too

49.5W Mohammed Shami to Mujeeb Ur Rahman that’s the hat-trick! Full, fast, and goes through the batsman again. Chetan Sharma did it in 1987, and 32 years on, here’s Mohammad Shami, finishing off with two perfect yorkers, to win it for India! Mujeeb backs away and tries to go down the ground, but there was searing accuracy about that ball. India get their 50th World Cup win with that, but well played Afghanistan! OUT
Mujeeb Ur Rahman b Mohammed Shami 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Can Mohammad Shami do a Chetan Sharma here?

49.4W Mohammed Shami to Aftab Alam THROUGH THE DEFENCE! Yorker, and he has got this perfectly. Alam backs away and tries to swipe this down the ground, but it crashes into middle and leg. Fast, straight and deathly accurate! OUT
Aftab Alam b Mohammed Shami 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Chinmay Jariwal: “I boarded a flight from Paris just after toss. Landed at Abu Dhabi after 7 hours and now about to board next flight to Mumbai. But can’t get my eyes off cricinfo during whole this break. What a thriller. Great advertisement for ODI. Go India go. ”

Right, Aftab Alam next. Two wickets in hand, but the set batsman is gone

David: “Who would have thought India Vs Afghanistan will be more interesting than India Vs Pakistan!”

49.3W Mohammed Shami to Mohammad Nabi yorker, and he has hit this down long on’s throat! India come close to winning a thriller! Shami chases Nabi as he backs away, and plays a lofted drive, but it goes down Pandya’s throat. India surely favourites from here? OUT
Mohammad Nabi c Pandya b Mohammed Shami 52 (105m 55b 4×4 1×6) SR: 94.54

Venkat: “Indian fans should just relax and not start name picking on who to be replaced for the next game. Purely in terms of runs scored for balls faced, Shankar has done a par job in comparison to his team mates. Today was a complete lower order meltdown and to blame on Shankar is ridiculous.”

49.20 Mohammed Shami to Mohammad Nabi full ball, and he has hit this towards deep midwicket. Refuses the single no run
49.14 Mohammed Shami to Mohammad Nabi drilled down the ground for four! He looks for the yorker, but misses his length, Nabi backs away and hits it straight down towards long on. Fifty for Nabi FOUR

Shami. 16 to win!

End of Over No.49 209/7 Last Over (5 runs)

Prashanth: “Will nabi do a williamson? ”

48.61 Bumrah to Mohammad Nabi yorker, and he can only dig this out towards square leg. Keeps strike, but what an over from Bumrah! 1 run

Aayush Pathak: “Guys dont get upset if your website get crashed now by the people engagement. It cannot be more thriller than this ! ”

48.51 Bumrah to Ikram Alikhil full ball again, and he backs away and gets it out towards deep backward point 1 run

Top class death bowling from Jasprit Bumrah, as you would expect

48.40 Bumrah to Ikram Alikhil around the wicket, a full toss, but fast, and it goes straight towards Rohit Sharma at short midwicket no run

Asad : “Looking forward to seeing Afghanistan win, not because I’m Pakistani but because I want to confirm team India is not invincible. Love the way Kohli has carried a lot of the weight of the batting on himself n delivering constantly almost with perfection each time.”

48.31 Bumrah to Mohammad Nabi yorker, and he can only chop it down towards midwicket. Just a single… 1 run

Hammad: “Whose Win probability are you talking about?” — Always for the chasing team

Nabi is one blow away from a half-century, by the way. And he’s asking for new bats

Shankar: “It may be very brave call, but Rahul looks good at 4 in this WC. I think they just do one straight replacement of Dhawan with Pant at the top of the order. Let’s have left and right combination”

48.22 Bumrah to Mohammad Nabi full ball, and he has dropped this towards extra cover. Long off, Rahul, gets around to it, and cannot prevent the couple 2 runs
48.10 Bumrah to Mohammad Nabi full, fast, and he can only dig it out towards point. Chooses not to take the single that could have been on offer no run

Win probability at 22 percent, as Bumrah runs in for his final over…

End of Over No.48 204/7 Last Over (3 runs)

“Dhoni has been practising run outs – he is alert to Nabi wanting to get on strike. He has been positioning himself accordingly for the throw after collecting the ball this over,” observes Nagraj

47.62 Mohammed Shami to Ikram Alikhil short, and he swings across the line towards midwicket. They will come back for two, so Nabi can retain strike for Bumrah 2 runs

Kandarp: “I think only if India loses, they’ll look into their team selection. You can’t have Vijay and Jadhav in the team if you are not looking for overs from them. DK and Jaddu could be better replacements. You’ll definitely get some right overs from Jaddu and DK can be a handy customer with both quick and steady game as situation demands. As long as India keeps winning, they’ll never look at this weakness that can cost then the important games”

47.50 Mohammed Shami to Ikram Alikhil short, and might be called a wide. Not given actually, as Ikram allows this to get through no run

Athal Afghan : “Nabi done very well in these kind of situations in the past hope he make it possible today too Lap dap is in very high even it’s palpitation” — It must be exciting for everybody following this game. What a game for this World Cup!

47.40 Mohammed Shami to Ikram Alikhil short, and he dabs it down at the stumps. Shami is quick to get to the ball no run
47.30 Mohammed Shami to Ikram Alikhil short, angles across him. He looks to pull this away, but cannot get close to it. Delivered at 139kph no run

Ankit: “Although its late now but cant believe Kohli’s captaincy. Why include V Shankar when you dont have enough confidence in his bowling and no overs for jadhav …why” — The post-match comments should be interesting

47.21 Mohammed Shami to Mohammad Nabi full ball, and he digs it out towards deep midwicket. Can only take one 1 run
47.10 Mohammed Shami to Mohammad Nabi straight, and full, and it’s been given leg-before. Afghanistan want to review this, and have gone for it! There’s no edge on this, the ball comes in and hits him OUTSIDE THE LINE. Not out, this will be then! no run

Fakhrul: “Wish it was Shahzad walking out now instead of Alikhil. ” — To be fair, he would probably have opened

Srivathsan : “I hardly understand the role of Vijay Shankar in the team. Vijay is neither a complete batsman nor a bowler, whereas Hardik can do both. It is high time for management to rethink about the role of Vijay shankar in the playing 11. It is better to go with Ravi Jadeja or Dinesh Karthik ”

End of Over No.47 201/7 Last Over (8 runs)

46.61 Bumrah to Mohammad Nabi full ball, and he has pushed this away towards sweeper cover 1 run
46.50 Bumrah to Mohammad Nabi yorker, and he plays it back towards Bumrah. Collected on the bump, but the crowd gets excited as it looks a bit like a return catch no run

Ajay: “If Afgan wins then its not an would be wake-up call for India if they want to lift World cup. Better lose now then in Semis or finals”

46.40 Bumrah to Mohammad Nabi full ball, outside off, and he cannot do anything with this no run
46.36 Bumrah to Mohammad Nabi short, and he has swung this around…for SIX! This is a serious blow from Nabi, as he uses Bumrah’s pace to swing this over midwicket. Top shot, and are they pumped! SIX

Uttkarsh: “The difference between two sides has been strike rotation and running between the wickets … India were very lazy and not converting one into two”

46.21 Bumrah to Ikram Alikhil short, and he has taken off after playing it to point. Pandya attacks the ball, and has a shy at the striker’s end, but misses! How crucial could this be? 1 run
46.10 Bumrah to Ikram Alikhil starts with a full ball, on off stump, at 138kph, and he can only drive it back down the pitch no run

Bumrah around the wicket

Over to ShamBu then

Arvind: “Budding spinners from all over the world …are you watching chahal ? What do you bowl when the batsman has just hit you for a 4 …when most pull their length back chahal flights generously and tats got chumma crucial wicket ..take a bow !”

End of Over No.46 193/7 Last Over (8 runs)

Chahal finishes with 2 for 36, a top effort given what India were playing with

Rashid Khan st †Dhoni b Chahal 14 (20m 16b 1×4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Sabrish j R: “Hoping for a win.. but wish its a draw .. coz in 2007 also we had a draw n also in 2011 we had s draw… ”

Who will Win 28th match: Afghanistan v India ?

With ten nearly equally matched groups, the importance of every game can’t be understated in this tournament. Both sides are expected to emerge out packaged full-strength against each other in what claims to be a cracker of a competition. Contemplating that the 2 sides on newspaper,India are somewhat more power-packed unit whereas Afghanistan possess the benefit of being a steady side. For this and another above-mentioned motives, we believe the India are far more likely to emerge victorious in what will be among the most crucial experiences for either side.
