Commentary

India won by 8 wkts | Afghanistan Vs India Live Score, 9th ODI Match

There is one more dead rubber to be done with before the final showdown. Sri Lanka will cross swords with Bangladesh tomorrow. Do join us for that. Until then, take care, sayonara!
Jadeja: 'The wicket is a bit slow. I was looking to turn the ball. We know the conditions here in Dhaka. Before the game started, Duncan advised us to be serious and focus on the job.'
Ravindra Jadeja is the Man of the Match for his splendid bowling figures of 4-30
Kohli: 'It was a complete performance from the team today. It is very hard to motivate the team when you are out of the tournament. The boys did very well. Today everyone were relaxed. The idea was to give Ajinkya some time in the middle. He has scored on and off. The idea was to send DK up the order as well to gain some confidence. The attitude is right from the boys. We have to work on the execution though. I was pretty confident in this tournament but things did not go our way. We lost close games, the bowlers showed a lot of character. It was pleasing to see Mishra bowl well under pressure against Pakistan.'
Nabi: 'It was a great tournament for the Afghanistan cricket team. We have proved our talent in this Asia Cup. We have learnt a lot from the Test nations. We will come back stronger for the next Asia Cup. Ashwin and Jadeja were brilliant. There were big celebrations in Afghanistan after the win against Bangladesh. We will like to play more matches against the full member nations.'
Rahane: 'They started really well. The way they were batting initially, we thought they would score 230, but our bowlers did very well to restrict them, really happy for that. Spinners bowled exceedingly well and later on me and Shikhar decided to bat as long as we could. It's disappointing not to have qualified for the final but we have got a few positives coming out of this series and we are looking forward to the T20 World Cup.'
Dhawan and Rahane essayed some solid cricket, guarding against the banana peel. Both batsmen eased to fifties setting up the consolation win for India. This must instill some confidence ahead of the World T20 Championship. Do stick around for the presentation and quotes from both the captains.
Batting first, Afghanistan enjoyed a promising start but once India's spin triumvirate arrived on the scene it was all downhill for Afghanistan. Jaddu, Mishra and Ashwin, boasting combined figures of 30-5-82-8 cruelly exposed Afghanistan's inadequacies against spin.
32.2 Samiullah Shenwari to Rohit Sharma 4
FOUR, creamed past extra cover and India sign off on a winning note. This was floated full and outside off, Rohit leans forward and drives it gorgeously to seal it for India although this win will have no effect on the final
32.1 Samiullah Shenwari to Rohit Sharma 2
2 runs, turning in from a length outside off, Rohit waves it away to deep mid wicket
End of over 32, 1 runs (. 1 . . . . )
IND: 154/2
Dinesh Karthik - 21(27) This over: 0 runs
Rohit Sharma - 12(22) This over: 1 runs
Shapoor Zadran
(6.0 - 0 - 25 - 0)
31.6 Shapoor Zadran to Dinesh Karthik 0
no run, full toss outside off, D Karthik's eyes lit up as he met that freebie but he only hits it to mid-off off the bottom section of the bat
31.5 Shapoor Zadran to Dinesh Karthik 0
no run, pitched up and on off, D Karthik plants his front foot forward and drives it to the man at cover
31.4 Shapoor Zadran to Dinesh Karthik 0
no run, good length ball on off, D Karthik presses it to mid-on
31.3 Shapoor Zadran to Dinesh Karthik 0
no run, shortish and angling in on middle, hurrying on to the batsman. D Karthik defends it streakily, for he had nearly chopped on
31.2 Shapoor Zadran to Rohit Sharma 1
1 run, back of a length ball on middle, Rohit uses his wrist work and plays it to square leg
