Highlights - Rashid Khan - Mohammad Shahzad star in epic tied match

Watch the highlights of India vs Afghanistan 5th Match 2018 - Asia Cup one day international tournament 5th ODI cricket match played between India and Afghanistan at Dubai in 2018 - Match Tied.

Rashid Khan defended seven runs in the final over to help Afghanistan eke out a memorable thrilling tie against India in Asia Cup 2018

Mohammad Shahzad 124 lead to Afghanistan managed to 252 for 8 in 50 overs. It then peaked into an epic thriller when India's middle order unravelled, leaving them 7-runs to get off the final over of the match bowled by Rashid Khan, India with just one wicket in hand.

Ravindra Jadeja refusing a single off the first ball, Jadeja slog swept the second ball over midwicket. It seemingly hit the ad skirting on the full and had Rohit thinking it was a six in the dressing room but after several replays by TV umpire Rod Tucker ruled it a four.

Jadeja then knocked the third ball to square leg for a single-run, exposing No. 11 Khaleel Ahmed, who was only playing his second one-day international. Leaving cover open, Rashid unfurled a googly, which Khaleel inside-edged to short fine leg and hared across to the other end.

Then, with 1-run required from 2 deliveries, Jadeja lost his head and flapped a rank half-tracker into the lap of Najibullah Zadran at deep midwicket - the only man in the deep on the leg side. A game of extremely fine margins resulted in the 36th tied match in 4046th one-day international match.
