India have won both World Cup matches so far

Speaking about the match, the visitors won the toss and opted to have a bat first. Skipper Hashmatullah Shahidi was pick of the batters as he stroked 80 off 88 balls. For India, senior pacer Jasprit Bumrah was exceptional as he took a 4-wicket haul. The Afghani side finished on 273 runs in their allotted 50 overs.

Chasing a tricky 273 for the win, India wasted not time thanks to their skipper Rohit Sharma who smashed his 31st ODI ton and 7th in World Cup history. He scored 131 off 84 balls. Ishan Kishan who was with him was a mere spectator as he scored 47 off 47 balls at the other end.
