India needed a victory of more than 99 runs in this match but the struggle of Afghanistan’s batsmen did not allow it to happen.
How did Team India’s hopes rise?
India’s semi-final journey became almost impossible with the loss against New Zealand. Now this difficulty increased a bit due to not getting the desired victory against Afghanistan.
