In the second Super Over, India prevailed by a score of ten runs.
On Wednesday, January 17, India and Afghanistan played the third and last Twenty20 International of their current series at Bangalore’s M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. As the Indian squad took on Afghanistan, they were feeling confident because they had previously won the series.
India took the batting first in the third Twenty20 International. The side lost the toss and the top order fell apart, which gave them a terrible start. Yashasvi Jaiswal, the opener, scored four runs; Virat Kohli and Shivam Dube did not contribute any runs.
The Men in Blue’s innings were stabilized by the hits of Rohit Sharma and Rinku Singh following a poor start. India amassed 212 runs in the first innings because to the combined efforts of Rinku and Rohit, who combined for 61* and 69* runs in 39 deliveries. Fareed Ahmad got the most wickets for Afghanistan, taking three, followed by Azmatullah Omarzai, who took one wicket.
