    Rohit shatters another record

    This spin and pace combination is not working for Afghanistan. Infact, the inconsistency in line and length just helped the Indian batters!

    Rohit is now looking at his best skipping down the track and lofting Fazal over the mid-off for a six and then hits the short ball for a boundary as well.

    The Indian captain now has become the fourth Indian to score more than 1000 World Cup runs.

    India 37/0 after 5 overs! Rohit 31 from 20 balls!

    Pace and Spin from each end for Afghanistan

    Afghanistan looking to work on history the Indian batters had in recent past. Left arm pacer Fazal from one end and Mujeeb-Ur-Rahaman from another end for Afghanistan against Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan.

    Both Ishan and Rohit were dismissed early with pace in the game against Australia. Moreover, both of them have history against left-armers.

    With Mujeeb, they are looking to trap Rohit on the crease. Mujeeb were able to dismiss him in the 2019 World Cup in England. However, this time, it does not look like he will get that amount of help under the lights here in Delhi.

The ball goes very high and two fielders converge. Kuldeep and Jadeja both want the catch but Yadav ends up taking it. He almost missed it but stick out both hands and pouched it safely.

    Naveen-ul-Haq is the new batsman and the crowd is chanting Kohli-Kohli. We wonder why.

    Bumrah ends his 10-over spell with leaking only 39 runs and scalping 4 crucial wickets. What a brilliant day he is having at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.
