Watch – KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma’s scintillating knocks against Afghanistan
The right-handed batter, KL Rahul, showcased his class against Afghanistan. In the important game for Team India, he hit an impressive 69 off 48 balls. His knock was laced with 6 fours and 2 sixes.
KL Rahul shared a 100-plus partnership with Rohit Sharma, who scored 74 runs for the Men in Blue. Rohit faced 47 balls and hit 8 fours and 3 sixes. India came into this match with a poor run of form having lost to Pakistan and New Zealand in the first two games of the ICC T20 World Cup. However, it was forgotten as the two openers played freely from the first ball of the innings.
Apart from these two, Hardik Pandya scored an unbeaten 35 off 13 balls while Rishabh Pant accumulated 27 not out off 13 balls. India scored 210 for 2 in 20 overs, the highest team score in this edition of the T20 World Cup.
