India beat Afghanistan in their T20 World Cup Super 8 opener. While the result was a convincing win for the batting order, one key moment involving skipper Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli cast a shadow over India's performance.
It all happened during the Afghan run chase when Kohli grassed a relatively straightforward chance at short third.
The incident occurred in the third over of the innings. Ibrahim Zadran steered a ball towards the third-man region but was not in control and failed to keep it down.
But Kohli failed to time his jump, and the ball popped out of his hand.
Rohit Sharma, known for his usually calm demeanour, could not hide his frustration.
His reaction was caught on camera, showing a mix of disbelief and exasperation.
Kohli, one of the most experienced and accomplished players in the Indian squad, usually has high standards as a player. But this World Cup has not been a good outing for him.
Meanwhile, it was Jasprit Bumrah who took three wickets for just seven runs as India beat Afghanistan by 47 runs in their Super Eight match at the Twenty20 World Cup on Thursday.
Bumrah’s four-over spell was aided by Arshdeep Singh, who finished with 3-36. Spinners Kuldeep Yadav (2/32) and Axar Patel (1/15) shared three wickets as Afghanistan was bowled out for 134 runs.
Earlier, Suryakumar Yadav scored 53 off 28 balls — his fifth T20 World Cup half-century — as India reached 181-8 in 20 overs after deciding to bat.
Yadav hit three sixes and five fours, while Hardik Pandya scored 32 off 24 balls, including two sixes.
Yadav was named player of the match.
