KL Rahul moves inside the line to help a length ball for six

Afghanistan have finally dislodged the 119-run opening stand between the Indian openers. Fareed Ahmad gets Rahul miscuing a cross-seamer short ball. Suryakumar Yadav gets off the mark with a typically audacious scooped six over fine leg but perishes next ball, dragging on a hard length delivery onto his stumps. Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant are together in the middle.

Kohli, the best batter from India in terms of runs at Asia Cup, brought up his third fifty this edition. KL Rahul, who’s looked a bit out of touch of late, notched up the milestone off 36 balls. Kohli did it off 32 balls.
