    There you have it folks. No team wins. Honestly, no team deserved to.

    Afghanistan have continued to punch above their weight in the Asia Cup. After a spirited showing that almost got them home against Pakistan the other night, they dished out yet another inspiring performance, one that resulted in a dramatic last-over tie against India the penultimate Super four match of the tournament.

    Ravindra Jadeja had shepherded the tail until only one was needed off two balls, before Afghanistan cricket’s superstar had him out caught to the only fielder in the deep. No provision of a super over meant that India remain unbeaten heading into the final on Friday. As for Afghanistan, they would head home proud of the fact that they didn’t lose to the No.1 ranked side in the world.

    It’s a tie. What a finish. One needed off two and Jadeja finds the fielder in the deep. Afghanistan are jubilant!

    Two run outs for India in quick succession. 8 needed off seven balls. Last wicket remains.

    It’s getting tense folks. India need 13 in two overs with three wickets remaining. Can India hang on, or will Afghanistan script their most famous ODI win?

    Advantage Afghanistan! It’s taken them five deliveries to send back the two set batsmen – Karthik and Jadhav. Jadhav was run out at the non striker’s end as the ball deflected off bowler Mujeeb’s hands to hit the stumps. Karthik was plain unlucky. The ball was going down leg but the umpire thought otherwise. India 6 down for 208. They need 46 off 59.

    200 up for India. Karthik and Jadhav have put on 36 off 41 to bring the equation down to 51 off 75. Afghanistan are trying but these two batsmen are just ahead by that much.

    Nice little period of play in progress. Afghanistan are operating through Rashid and Mujeeb. India batting with Jadhav and Karthik. Let us not forget that Ravindra Jadeja is the only other specialist batsman to come. A wicket here and it’ll make things tough for India. Boundaries have been few in the last 10 overs. India need 69 off 96 with six wickets in hand.

    There goes another one. A lazy swing outside off from Manish Pandey and India are FOUR down for 166. Ok then, this is not as easy as one would have thought. Aftab Alam picks up his first wicket. The tricky part for India however, is that Rashid, Mujeeb and Nabi still have a few overs left between them. Stay tuned people, this one has all the makings of a great finish.

    OUT! Big wicket. MS Dhoni goes. Javed Ahmadi gets the Indian captain out LBW. Dhoni looks upset with the decission but he has no review left. KL Rahul had wasted it earlier. It’s as if he is still in England, where India were driven by this need to review everything under the sun. The ball tracker suggests that it would have missed the leg stump, by some five cms. India three down for 142. This should inspire Afghanistan to get some more.

Asia Cup 2018, India vs Afghanistan, LIVE Cricket Score, Super Four, Dubai: Rashid clinches last-ball tie for Afghanistan

After having shaken off the dust in a lacklustre performance against Hong Kong in their 2018 Asia Cup opener, India have mauled over their oppositions with huge defeats, including two massive victories over Pakistan.

Having sealed their place in the summit clash on Friday after two wins in the Super Four matches – one over Bangladesh and Pakistan – India face Afghanistan in their last Super Four match at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

After a last-over loss to Pakistan in their Super Four round, Afghanistan came agonisingly close to another win against Bangladesh, but were too close, yet too far for a win, and lost by three runs on Sunday.
