After winning the big match against arch-rival Pakistan, Team India took on Afghanistan on Saturday. Winning the toss, Virat Kohli opted to bat first hoping to recreate the magic of the last game, however, things got a little shaky as opener Rohit Sharma was sent back after scoring only one run.

The match at Southampton was kick-started in a very controlled manner by the Afghan bowlers giving only seven runs in the first four overs. And things turned in their favour as Mujeeb Ur Rahman dismissed Sharma with amazing delivery. The spinner halted the hitman, who has already scored two centuries at the tournament.
