Team India won league matches against Australia, South Africa and Pakistan very convincingly. It faced the real challenge in the match against Afghanistan on Saturday. Understandable, The Indian Skipper was on his toes during the course of the match because of the spirited fight of Afghans.



Batting First, India made a below-par score of 224 at the loss of 8 wickets in 50 overs. When Afghanistan came out to bat, Indian Pacer Mohammad Shami trapped Opener Hazratullah Zaza in front of the wickets when the score was 6. The on-field Umpire hadn't raised the finger and the negative response prompted Kohli to opt for the DRS Review. Even the Replays on the big screen went against India as the ball had marginally pitched outside the leg-stump. That is how India lost their review within few overs after the second innings began.

Kohli who was visibly furious had a brief argument with the Umpire over the DRS Rule before folding his hands and pleading with him. Fans took this opportunity to circulate countless funny memes on the social media.

India won nail-biter on Sunday by just 11 runs. Shami's hat-trick in the final over and good support from rest of the Bowlers fetched victory.
