India beat Afghanistan by 11 runs in a nail-biting finish in Southampton during their World Cup 2019 encounter on Saturday. Having been set 225 to win in 50 overs, Afghanistan required 16 to win off the final over.
However, Mohammed Shami dismissed Mohammad Nabi, Aftab Alam, and Mujeeb-ur-Rahman off consecutive balls in the final over as India secured a thrilling win.
While Mohammed Shami registered a hat trick and became the second Indian to achieve the feat, Jasprit Bumrah was announced as the man of the match.
India will next face West Indies at Old Trafford Cricket Ground in their 6th World Cup 2019 game.
