KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma came out firing on all cylinders to help India to their fastest 50-score in a T20I contest. Their no-holds-barred pyrotechnics shot India to an NRR-boosting eight-wicket win with more than 13 overs to spare, notwithstanding Rohit’s dismissal on the last ball of the fifth over. It was also the highest score for India in PowerPlays, with Rahul marmalizing an 18-ball fifty and Rohit slamming 30 in a jiffy to boot. India whooshed past Afghanistan’s net run rate due to the sheer magnitude of the win.
