Hashmatullah Shahidi walks out next to bat.
16.5 overs (0 Run) OUT! In the air... taken! 100th International wickets for Pandya. Excellent bowling change by Kohli. Not many, trust me, after looking at his first spell, not many would have wanted Pandya to bowl at the moment. He though silences his critics by providing the breakthrough India needed. The short ball does the trick for him. It is outside off, Naib looks to pull but only manages a top edge which goes high up in the air towards square leg. Shankar from the deep runs in and takes a good catch. End of a budding stand. 161 more needed.
16.4 overs (1 Run) On the shorter side outside, too easy for the batter as he slaps it through covers for one.
16.3 overs (1 Run) Back of a length again outside off, Naib guides it down to third man this time and gets to the other end.
16.2 overs (1 Run) Outside off, Shah guides it down to third man and takes one.
16.1 overs (0 Run) Good length and around off, this is pushed to mid off.
Hardik Pandya is back on. He was poor in his first spell. Needs to do well now.
Drinks break. So far, so good for Afghanistan. They started nervously but the current partnership has settled things down. India are under pressure at the moment. They have pinned all their hopes on their spinners, who have bowled tidily but have failed to provide any breakthrough. 164 needed more off 204 balls. It is all about holding nerves for the Asian minnow. They should know that if they bat out 50 overs, this is their game in all likelihood.
15.6 overs (0 Run) How has that missed the stumps? WOW! That lands around middle and then spins away. Rahmat lunges forward to defend. The ball goes past the outside edge and just about kisses the off pole.
15.5 overs (1 Run) The batsman has played it towards mid-wicket. They pick up a single.
15.4 overs (1 Run) Flighted ball on off, Naib pushes it uppishly but lands in the vacant mid off area for one.
15.3 overs (1 Run) Very full this is eased down to long off for one.
15.2 overs (0 Run) SAFE! Shah never lifted his foot! The googly from Kuldeep on off, it pitches and turns away. Rahmat looks to defend but is beaten. Dhoni whips the bails off in a flash. The umpire takes it upstairs and replays show that Rahmat is fine.
Stumping appeal! MS Dhoni is lightning quick behind the wickets, as usual. He appeals and the square leg umpire refers it upstairs. Rahmat Shah is the batsman in question. Is he safe?
15.1 overs (1 Run) Very full outside off, this is jammed past mid off for one.
