India won a spine chiller against Afghanistan in their fifth match of the 2019 Cricket World Cup as Mohammed Shami turned out to be just the second Indian bowler to record a World Cup cap trap. After a normal execution by their batsmen, India's bowlers revived to safeguard 224 and prevent Afghanistan from pulling off one of the best World Cup upsets.
Mohammed Shami expelled Mohammad Nabi, Aftab Alam and Mujeeb-ur-Rahman off back to back balls in the last over as India verified an exciting success.
Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal and Hardik Pandya snatched 2 each after Virat Kohli's 67 and Kedar Jadhav's 52 had helped India post 224 for 8 off their 50 overs. Afghanistan gave India a genuine panic - their batsmen were dirty and battled till the end.
At last, India held their nerves better and won their 50th match in every World Cup. India currently have 9 (4 wins, 1 no outcome) from 5 coordinates in the 2019 World Cup.
Pursuing 225 against a top quality bowling assault, Afghanistan required a strong begin. However, their openers were secured by Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. Hazratullah Zazai became annoyed, swung for the skies and Shami hit timber. Be that as it may, Gulbadin Naib and Rahmat Shah included 44 off the following 10.2 overs to quiet nerves in the Afghan changing area.
Hardik Pandya had given away 20 keeps running off his initial 2 overs and that was harming India in a low-scoring game. However, Virat Kohli trusts Pandya and he confided in his magic all-rounder to give him the achievement. Beyond any doubt enough, Hardik Pandya took out Naib as Afghanistan slipped to 64 for 2 off 16.5 overs.
Jasprit Bumrah then broke a hazardous remain between Rahmat Shah and Hashmatullah Shahidi when he expelled both batsmen in the twentieth overs before Yuzvendra Chahal trapped Asghar Afghan. However, Afghanistan were in no mind-set to surrender.
Mohammad Nabi and Najibullah Zadran included 36 and Afghanistan crept nearer. India were starting to get a little disappointed when Pandya struck in his last over to evacuate Zadran. The pursuit was currently set up for Afghanistan's most well known IPL faces - Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan.
Also, both Nabi and Rashid gave Afghanistan trust. One man was glad to play second fiddle to the next and the game was starting to get somewhat tense.
Be that as it may, Chahal imprinted Afghanistan when he expelled the risky Rashid Khan for 14 in his last finished.
Be that as it may, Mohammad Nabi kept Afghanistan alive. He was quiet and held his cool under strain against two of the most risky pacers in world cricket. Afghanistan required 16 off the last finished - Nabi hit Shami for a limit off the main bundle of the last over to bring it down to 12 off 5 balls. He at that point denied a solitary and afterward died to Shami in the third ball.
Shami at that point expelled Aftab Alam and Mujeeb-ur-Rahman to turn into the second Indian bowler to pick a World Cup cap trap.
Prior in the day, India batted after Virat Kohli won the hurl. Given their batting quality, India were required to heap up a monstrous score against the weakest group of this competition. However, that was not to be. India completed with their most reduced aggregate of the World Cup.
Prior to Saturday, India did not lose a solitary wicket to turn. Against Afghanistan, they would lose 5. On a moderate pitch, Afghanistan chief Gulbadin Naib hurled the new ball to Mujeeb-ur-Rahman and he began off splendidly.
India's openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma were vigilant against Mujeeb and Aftab Alam. Truth be told, they were excessively wary and the in-structure Rohit Sharma got a marvel from Mujeeb which hit the highest point of his off-stump. The Indian bad habit commander was out for 1 subsequent to scoring 122 not out against South Africa, 57 against Australia and 140 against Pakistan.
Virat Kohli carried a great deal of earnestness to the center and with KL Rahul hoping to settle down, it looked like India would get over that early shock.





While Kohli played his shots, ran hard and tried to put weight on Afghanistan, KL Rahul was getting into a shell. In any case, what might no uncertainty pester the group the executives was the way Rahul got out - he miscued a turn around scope off Mohammad Nabi to succumb to 30 off 53.
Vijay Shankar was sent in at No.4. In any case, his innings was abnormally paced and he kept a free-streaming Virat Kohli off strike for an extended length. On a moderate pitch where run-production was troublesome, India's methodology of not pivoting the strike was confounding.
Vijay Shankar was in the long run rejected for by Rahmat Shah for 29 in the 27th over. Not long after in the 31st over, Nabi got the enormous wicket of Virat Kohli for a 63-ball 67. The Indian commander was done in by the additional ricochet and the group slipped into inconvenience at 135 for 4.
MS Dhoni has regularly been condemned for his go-moderate methodology in ODIs and on Saturday, he was by and by unfit to break free. The pitch was surely hard to score keeps running on yet with someone of his experience, the absence of singles and strike pivot was confusing. He in the long run succumbed to 28 which came at a strike rate of 53.84.
Kedar Jadhav was untested in the major alliance since his damage in the IPL. In any case, he was dirty and towards the last phases of his innings, he attempted to drive the issue. On account of his 52, India figured out how to cross the 200-run mark and gave their bowlers something to bowl at.

India will next face West Indies on June 27 preceding taking on England on June 30.
