That's all from this close game. Afghanistan made sure that they don't get steamrolled, in fact, they gave India a very good run for their money. The Men in Blue now jump to the number 3 position in the points table after this hard-fought win. You can now switch tabs to catch all the action from Match 29 of this World Cup. For Sunday, you can join us at 1030 local (0930 GMT) for the clash between Pakistan and South Africa at Lord's. Cheers!
India skipper, Virat Kohli says this is one of his best victories. Mentions they have been playing very good cricket. Further adds that they felt 260 or 270 would have been an outstanding score but 250 would have been par. Admits at the halfway mark, they did have doubts in their mind but they had the self-belief. Informs as soon as he went in to bat, he knew it was a slow wicket and the cross-batted shots were not the option here. Mentions that they needed to work it around and get into the innings as it was always going to be difficult with so many quality spinners in the opposition. Tells they look to use Bumrah smartly and he can pick wickets at any time. Informs they planned to give him the 49th so that Shami has quite a few runs to defend. Mentions Shami was excellent, especially his first spell, he was getting the ball to move around. Also tells Vijay Shankar has also shown intent, he has been fielding well too. Ends by saying the players in the squad are hungry and they know what it is to represent your country in the World Cup.
Afghanistan skipper, Gulbadin Naib says they played really well. Mentions that they bowled well and did an amazing job in restricting the Indian batting line-up which is very strong. States Afghanistan did well with the bat too but credits Bumrah for the way he bowled. Informs that the wicket was good in the first half and the spinners were very good, especially Rashid, who made a strong comeback. Further adds that they bowled well at the end too. Stresses the total was not a big one but they needed a big score from someone but it did not come. Ends by saying they lost their first 4 games really badly but in the last two games, they have done well and it is a positive sign for the team.
Jasprit Bumrah is the Man of the Match for his outstanding bowling! He says to be the go-to bowler of his skipper gives him a lot of confidence to express himself and that helps him to keep a clear mind. States the wicket was getting slower so they needed to be accurate with the older balls. Mentions he was backing his yorkers, the slower ball could also be used but it had to be according to the situation. Stresses they wanted to create pressure and increase the required run rate and it worked for them. Ends by saying they are all very close to each other, they discuss about the plans and it is very good that everybody is chipping in with the wickets.
It eventually came down to handling pressure. Afghanistan showed their inexperience there. They had India on the mat for some time but lacked the killer instinct to press the advantage home. A few reckless shots added to their woes and then to handle the class of Bumrah and Shami was always going to be too hot to handle, especially at the death. The Men in Blue showed good character under pressure and just hung in there. They won the decisive moments and this close win will give them more happiness and confidence than any win so far in this tournament. A good workout was needed heading forward.
With Afghanistan slowly inching closer to the target, Virat Kohli turned to his trump card, Jasprit Bumrah. The speedster didn't disappoint his skipper and removed the set batsmen, Rahmat Shah and Hashmatullah Shahidi, in a space of three balls. The 29th over completely changed the landscape of this match and India bounced back on top. They slipped in some tidy overs to swell the required run rate and in spite of Mohammad Nabi trying his best by stitching a few partnerships, they fell short by 11 runs.
Yet another cliffhanger! Sri Lanka punched above their weight last evening to upset England and now Afghanistan nearly got the better of India. World Cup is surely warming up with some really close contests now. This match was played on a sluggish surface where India struggled to get going with the bat. They managed just 224 in their 50 overs and offered a real chance to Afghanistan. The Afghans started nervously but the second and third wicket partnerships kept them on the track and India on the back foot.
What an end to this thriller! Well done Afghanistan for making India work hard for their 50th World Cup win! They gave a real scare to the Men in Blue and won hearts of everyone with their lion-hearted effort. The Afghans will be disappointed on missing out on a golden opportunity to upset one of the title favourites. But chin up, you have done everyone proud.

Mohammed Shami To Mujeeb Ur Rahman OUT!
OUT! KABOOM! Shami takes a hat-trick! Only the second Indian to take a hat-trick in the World Cup. What a comeback into the team for him! He was given the responsibility of the last over and has come out with flying colors. He keeps it simple, goes full and straight at 142 kph, right at the base of the leg stump. Mujeeb swings but misses and the ball kisses the leg pole. All smiles in the Indian camp as they WIN BY 11 RUNS!
Mujeeb Ur Rahman is the new man in. He will face the hat-trick ball from Mohammed Shami.

Mohammed Shami To Aftab Alam OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! Two in two for Shami. What a comeback from him after going for a boundary on the first ball. He is delighted. He punches his fist in joy. He attacks the stumps, Alam swings but misses. The furniture behind is disturbed.

Mohammed Shami To Mohammad Nabi OUT!
OUT! There goes Nabi and there goes all the hopes of Afghanistan chasing this down. The Indian supporters and the Indian players can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Shami goes very full, Nabi looks to go over the long on fence. He though does not get under it and hence, the power is not there. It goes to Pandya who takes a good catch moving to his left. A top knock by Nabi but his effort will probably go in vain. 12 needed in 3 balls.

DOT BALL! Very full and on middle, Nabi winds up for a big shot but heaves it off the inner half to deep mid-wicket. Turns down the single. He wants to do it on his own.

Mohammed Shami To Mohammad Nabi
FOUR! Once again a boundary to begin Shami's over! Ideal start for Afghanistan. Shami misses the yorker by a little and ends up bowling a low full toss. Nabi powers it past long on for a boundary. Also, fifty up for Nabi. His 14th ODI fifty. Can he win Afghanistan this game?
16 needed off 6 balls. Mohammed Shami to bowl it. Nabi will be on strike. Can Afghanistan pull it off?

NOT OUT! Nabi survives! The impact is outside off! What a review taken by him. Afghanistan can now breathe a huge sigh of relief. They are still in it. Nabi shuffles across and looks to flick it on the leg side. He misses. The ball hits the pads and an appeal follows. The umpire raises his finger. Nabi has to review and he does so. Replays roll in and they show the impact is outside off.
Massive moment in this match! Mohammad Nabi has been adjudged lbw! The impact appears to be outside the line. He has taken the DRS. Phew, let's wait and watch what the Ball Tracker tells us. IMPACT IS THE ISSUE! Nabi survives.
Mohammed Shami comes on to bowl. He has 2 overs left.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Rashid Khan OUT!
OUT! Stumped! Beauty of a delivery. One leggie to another leggie and it's a beautiful sight, if you are an Indian fan. Nicely tossed up ball by Chahal. He serves it full and outside off, Rashid is drawn forward as tries to drive but it spins away to beat the outside edge. He has dragged his back leg outside the crease in the process as well and Dhoni needs no second invitation. 35 needed off 26 balls, this is getting close!

Hardik Pandya To Najibullah Zadran OUT!
OUT! Soft, soft dismissal! Hardik Pandya strikes in his last over. Gets his second and another important wicket. He bowls the off cutter on middle, Zadran looks to flick but the ball sticks in the surface and comes slow. Najibullah ends up chipping it straight to the fielder at mid-wicket where Chahal makes no mistake. A decent innings from Zadran but he needed to continue. India though will be relieved to see the back of him as this partnership was starting to worry them. They might be just ahead here but can't relax. 59 needed in 51.

OUT! TIMBER! Chahal has got the breakthrough. Once again, just when Afghanistan seemed like they were moving ahead, India strike back. Yuzvendra tosses it up on off, it is the leg spinner. Afghan looks to hit it against the turn over the leg side. He misses and the ball kisses the off pole. Half the side back in the hut for Afghanistan. 95 needed in 90 balls.

Drinks break. The match has completely turned on its head after the double-wicket maiden by Jasprit Bumrah. He removed both the set batsmen in a space of three balls and has brought India back into this match. 115 needed off 114 balls is still gettable but now it's all about handling the pressure. The Indian bowlers are experienced in doing so while Afghanistan haven't encountered such situations much at a big stage like this. Their most experienced batting pair is in the middle and they need to construct a partnership here to get in front.

Jasprit Bumrah To Hashmatullah Shahidi OUT!
OUT! Caught and bowled! Bumrah has turned things around and is sending jitters to the Afghan dressing room. He switches to 'round the wicket for the left-hander and delivers a back of a length ball around off. Shahidi is stuck inside the crease and plays his shot early. The face of the bat is closed when the ball arrives and it lobs back off the leading edge. Bumrah runs forward to complete the catch and throws the ball up in celebration. India have roared back into this match after this double-wicket maiden from Boom-Boom-Bumrah!

Jasprit Bumrah To Rahmat Shah OUT!
OUT! Superb catch by Yuzvendra Chahal! India get a lifeline here. The 42-run stand is broken and the crowd has also come back to life. Bowling short more often than not works against the Asian batsmen. Bumrah digs it in at 144 kph, nicely directed, Shah takes on the challenge to pull but fails to middle his shot. It flies off the top edge behind square leg and Chahal rushes forward and across from the deep to take a fine low catch to his left. 119 needed more!

NOT OUT! Shahidi is well in! The leg spinner outside off, this one turns back in. Shahidi looks to defend but the ball hits the pads and lobs towards Dhoni. He takes it and whips the bails off. He appeals for a stumping whereas Chahal appeals for an LBW. The latter's appeal has been turned down. The former's appeal has been taken upstairs. Replays roll in and they show Shahidi is safe. Later on, the Ball Tracker confirmed that it was heading over the stumps.
Dual appeal there? First the bowler turned to appeal for an lbw and then Dhoni breaks the stumps to appeal for a stumping. India don't have the review to refer the lbw shout but the square leg umpire is going up to check for the stumping appeal.
