Over 50. 6 runs. Bowler: Rashid Khan. India: 10-252(rr 5.04)
50.5 OUT! Caught. Rashid Khan to Ravindra Jadeja. Leg spinner back of a length, middle stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Zadran. Taken in the deep, I cant believe it! Afghanistan leave one man out in the deep and Jadeja finds him. Super catch under pressure, he had time to think about it but held his nerve. Absolute scenes in Dubai, the Afghans are celebrating that like a victory. They looked down and out at one stage but an extraordinary finish means the match is tied. nn nnA dramatic finish in Dubai has seen India and Afghanistan tie an absolute thriller. Afghanistan came out in the field full of life after Mohammad Shahzads outstanding century, but India soon took control through new look opening pair KL Rahul (60) and Ambati Rayudu (57). Wickets started to fall but India always seemed in control with Dinesh Karthik (44) at the crease, but when he fell it sparked an incredible finish. Fittingly it was Afghanistans talisman Rashid Khan who took the final wicket despite battling injury, leaving Ravindra Jadeja crestfallen.
50.4 Rashid Khan to Khaleel Ahmed. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to leg gully for 1 run.
50.3 Rashid Khan to Ravindra Jadeja. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Ur Rahman.
50.2 FOUR! Rashid Khan to Ravindra Jadeja. Googly length ball, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. What a shot, Jadeja is the coolest man in Dubai with an extraordinary shot against Afghanistans gun bowler. Its painfully close whether it is a six or four, eventually it gets given as four. That could be crucial as well. What a match this has been.
50.1 Rashid Khan to Ravindra Jadeja. Googly back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Shahidi.
Over 49. 6 runs. Bowler: Aftab Alam. India: 9-246(rr 5.02)

49.5 OUT! Run Out. Aftab Alam to Siddarth Kaul. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to short mid wicket, direct hit by Shahidi. What a piece of fielding, take a bow Hashmatullah! Kaul tries to scamper a single but the fielder has other ideas and swoops down to nail the stumps direct. All the pressure is on Jadeja now, can he handle it?

49.1 OUT! Run Out. Aftab Alam to Kuldeep Yadav. Half volley, middle stump backing away driving, well timed to deep extra cover for 2 runs, run save by Naib, direct hit by Alam. What drama, amazing scenes in Dubai. Its all happening off this delivery. First it looks like the ball will race away as Kuldeep crashes one through extra, but Gulbadin throws himself to ground after a sprint to keep the ball in play. He then fires in a quick throw which the bowler collects, and then Alam nails the non-strikers stumps to catch Kuldeep short of a third run.

45.5 OUT! Bowled. Aftab Alam to Deepak Chahar. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. India lose their seventh, this match is getting tighter and tighter. The result might not change much in terms of this competition, but it would mean so much for Afghanistan to get over the line here. Chahar just wanted to turn this away for a single but it beats the inside edge and crashes into the stumps via the pad.

44.5 FOUR! Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Deepak Chahar. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. That will ease the nerves in the Indian camp. The debutant gets some room outside off and makes full use, unleashing a scything cut that skips away quickly.

40.4 OUT! L.B.W. Mohammad Nabi to Dinesh Karthik. Off break half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. The finger goes up this time, delight for Nabi as he gets the big wicket of Karthik. This is getting interesting now, Indias batting starts to look very thin towards the tail. Nabi fired this one in fast and full, and Karthik inexplicably misses the straight one. Replays suggest it might well have missed leg, but Afghanistan wont care about that now.
40.3 Mohammad Nabi to Dinesh Karthik. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Mohammadi.

39.5 OUT! Run Out. Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Dinesh Karthik. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler, direct hit by Ur Rahman. Mujeeb likes this, hes thinks hes got the breakthrough in very fortunate circumstances. Karthik strikes the ball nicely back at the bowler and it bursts through Mujeebs hands before hitting the stumps at the non-strikers end. Jadhav stretches but cant get back in time so has to trudge off disappointed. Its a lucky moment, perhaps what Afghanistan need to get back into the match.

37.1 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Rashid Khan to Kedar Jadhav. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Mohammadi, appeal made for Caught. Big shout, Rashid Khan is completely convinced there was an edge so Afghanistan will review. It seems like there was a noise but its come from bat hitting pad and not ball. Jadhav survives.
Over 36. 6 runs. Bowler: Mujeeb Ur Rahman. India: 4-196(rr 5.44)
36.6 Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Kedar Jadhav. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to deep point for 1 run, fielded by Zurmatai. These two milking it in ones and twos now. India in control again.

35.5 FOUR! Rashid Khan to Dinesh Karthik. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, top edge past third man for 4 runs.

31.3 OUT! Caught. Aftab Alam to Manish Pandey. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Mohammadi. Edged and gone, India are having a little bit of a wobble. The pitch has slowed up and its getting tough for batting out there.

Thats a really poor delivery, Karthik can hit it anywhere he wants.

26.5 OUT! L.B.W. Javed Ahmadi to MS Dhoni. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Up goes the finger, thats a huge wicket for Afghanistan. Dhoni looks like he wants to review but its already been burned by KL Rahul so he has to trudge off. He was just looking to nudge into the legside for a single but the ball spins off the surface to cannon into his big front pad. Massive moment, Afghanistan are really starting to apply some pressure now. Ball tracking shows that wouldve missed leg stump, drama.

Thats plumb, the finger goes up in an instant. Reverse-sweeping such a quick spinner is always dangerous, and Rashid Khan has fired this in to beat the bat. It wouldve gone on to smash middle stump but Rahul still asks for the review, a bit of a waste really. Afghanistan now have a chance to put the squeeze on with two new men in the middle.

18.1 OUT! Caught. Mohammad Nabi to Ambati Rayudu. Off break length ball, down leg side down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Zadran. Taken in the deep, thats just what Afghanistan were after. With Nabi and Rashid bowling in tandem, boundary options wont come along too often so Rayudu decides to create one himself. This time though the connection isnt as clean as hed hope and the long on fielder can settle underneath it. The ball was in the air for a very long time, so Najib does well to keep calm and gobble it up. Time for drinks.

Whipped away, its a nice looking stroke but he has picked out the man in the deep. A wicket on ODI debut for Chahar, not the way he would have imagined but Im sure hell take it. Gulbadin will be disappointed with that, its an unnecessary stroke and leaves Shahzad once again needing to form a partnership with a new man.

Another one, thats three wickets in six balls and Kuldeep is on a hat-trick.

16.2 OUT! Stumped. Kuldeep Yadav to Hashmatullah Shahidi. Chinaman length ball, to leg on the front foot working, missed to wicketkeeper, by Dhoni. Another one, all of a sudden Afghanistan are in some bother as we reach the first drinks break.

Dhoni has the bails off in the blink of an eye and India have their third scalp of the day. Shahzad just needs someone to stick with him at the moment.

15.2 FOUR! Ravindra Jadeja to Mohammad Shahzad. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump moves in front pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Shahzad is shuffling all over the crease to great effect. He is able to manoeuvre the ball into the gaps with ease.

13.4 OUT! Stumped. Ravindra Jadeja to Javed Ahmadi. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper, by Dhoni. Dhoni bags a stumping in his 200th ODI in typically cool fashion. Ahmadi wasnt too sure where the ball had gone after coming off the inside edge, and he took a step down the pitch which was all MSD needed to whip the bails off. Easy decision for the third umpire, India get their breakthrough.

9.5 Siddarth Kaul to Mohammad Shahzad. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front driving, in the air uncontrolled to long off for 1 run, dropped catch by Rayudu.
