India impress in Super 8s victory over Afghanistan

India /8 (Suryakumar 53, Pandya 32, Rashid 3-26, Farooqi 3-33)
Afghanistan 134 (Omarzai 26, Bumrah 3-7, Arshdeep 3-36)
India won by 47 runs

India underlined their title credentials with a comprehensive 47-run victory over Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup Super 8s in Barbados.

Suryakumar Yadav struck a sublime 53 off 28 balls to lead India to an imposing 181-8 despite their acclaimed top order failing to fire.

Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan and tournament leading wicket-taker Fazalhaq Farooqi impressed, claiming three wickets each, but a loose end to the innings left their batters little room for error in the chase.

They slipped to 23-3 early on in their reply, with India's supreme fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah removing both openers on his way to figures of 3-7.

India kept the pressure on to ensure Afghanistan fell far behind the required rate, before they were dismissed for 134 off the final ball, with Arshdeep Singh taking 3-36.
