Asia Cup: 5 Unnoticed things from the India-Afghanistan match
- The dead rubber ended in a tie!
#4 M Shahzad registers highest ODI score for Afghanistan against India
It was a rampaging start for the Afghans as their opening batsman Mohammad Shahzad went berserk to clobber Indian bowlers in all parts of the ground. Shahzad took the charge against the bowlers and went onto smash an inspiring 124 runs before bowing out against Kedar Jadhav.
Shahzad’s explosive innings saw him conquer the inexperienced attack with ease as he hit 11 fours and 7 sixes to bring up the highest score against India by any Afghanistan batsman. He may not possess the best of techniques when it comes to batting but it was a display of sheer skill and power that he could tonk every other ball for such a long distance.
