A spirited Afghanistan held heavyweights India to a tie in their final Super Four match of the 2018 Asia Cup at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Follow the highlights from the match:

# What a match! Afghanistan end their 2018 Asia Cup campaign on a high. They managed to put up a challenging total of 252 runs and in response held top-ranked India to a draw. Afghanistan picked up wickets at regular intervals, taking the match down to the last over. Rashid Khan, despite a hamstring injury, got the better of the dangerous Ravindra Jadeja in the penultimate ball to tie a nervy dead-rubber clash.  Earlier, opener Mohammad Shahzad scored a stunning century with a 116-ball 124 to lift Afghanistan from 82/4 to 180/6. He hit 11 fours and seven sixes at an impressive strike rate of 106.90. Mohammad Nabi then accelerated in the death with a 64 off 56 balls, steering his side to a competitive total. India, on the other hand, have already qualified for the final but will have sort their middle-order woes before the title clash against Pakistan/Bangladesh on Friday.
