Mohammad Nabi almost pulled it off for Afghanistan, but India paceman Mohammed Shami took a hat-trick to seal the game in the last over as the underdogs were bowled out for 213.

"Shami was really good today". India escaped by clinching the match by 11 runs to keep their winning run intact. "We'll have to be on our A game and put in another precise performance". But once Nabi went for 52 off 55 balls, it was all over for them.

India move on to play West Indies at Old Trafford in Manchester on Thursday, while Afghanistan meet Bangladesh in Southampton again on Tuesday, knowing they can already be hugely proud of their efforts.

Toss: India skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and decided that India would bat first.

Gritty Afghanistan gave title contenders India a big scare in Southampton after restricting Virat Kohli's side to 224 for eight and then taking the chase to the final over. Vijay Shankar attempted a sweep, tempted by the empty area at fine leg, but was lbw.

Here's what Hope Hicks revealed in her testimony
Neither the media nor Democrats described what they hoped to get from her beyond what already has been made public in the report. Hicks' attorney, Robert Trout, asked lawmakers to stop taking selfies during the hearing.

India's fans were stunned when Kohli cut Nabi to point in the 31st over to leave his side on 135-4 and their teams were unable to accelerate, hitting just seven boundaries from that stage.

India now have nine points from five games and are placed third in the points table behind New Zealand and Australia. Mahendra Singh Dhoni made a laboured 28 and Hardik Pandya could not reproduce his trademark power-hitting. Kedar Jadhav played a scrappy and unconvincing innings. The contest was expected to be a cakewalk for Kohli and boys and yet, the warriors from Afghanistan stood up, they were not going to be shunted away, and they dragged India to the wire, stretched them, gave them a scare and nearly pulled off one of World Cup's greatest upsets.

Afghanistan wobbled early in their chase, losing Hazratullah Zazai in the seventh over but they made slow, steady progress even after Gulbadin Naib fell for 27.

Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Mohammad Nabi sent India on a tailspin and threatened a Sri Lanka-style comeback as a second successive upset loomed large in the World Cup. Indian batsmen failed to deliver for the first time in the tournament and finished the innings at 224/8. We did well in batting, but credit to Bumrah for how he bowled in the last two or three overs.

"Thump? That is hugely disingenuous to a team that pushed you to the last over".
