However, it was still similar to a loss for Team India as they couldn’t get over the line even after a valiant effort from the KL Rahul, Ambati Rayudu and Ravindra Jadeja. Team India fans were left extremely disappointed as they saw Rashid Khan dismiss Jadeja in the final over to trigger massive celebrations in the Afghan camp.

After watching the kid cry, one of the Twitter handles also wrote that If it were Bollywood that kid could’ve become best Indian spinner after 15 years and dismissed the whole Afghanistan team for a duck. Replying to the same, that kid’s father replied by posting a video of the young fan training in MS Dhoni’s academy in Dubai. Here is the tweet:

Mohammad Shahzad’s heroic 116-ball 124 had helped Afghanistan set India a challenging 253 but KL Rahul and Ambati Rayudu’s solid start made sure that despite a stutter in the final, India were in for a victory, almost. They needed one run off two deliveries, Rashid bowled a short ball and Jadeja mistimed the shot to send the ball straight into the hands of the only fielder in the deep and the match ended in a tie.
