Team India began their Super Eight campaign in spectacular fashion, securing a convincing 47-run victory over Afghanistan in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 at the Kensington Oval on Thursday (Jun 20). After posting a target of 182 runs, the men in blue rode on scintillating bowling performance to bundle out the Afghanis for 134 runs.

India underlined their title credentials with a comprehensive 47-run victory over Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup Super 8s in Barbados.

Suryakumar Yadav struck a sublime 53 off 28 balls to lead India to an imposing 181-8 despite their acclaimed top order failing to fire.

Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan and tournament leading wicket-taker Fazalhaq Farooqi impressed, claiming three wickets each, but a loose end to the innings left their batters little room for error in the chase.

They slipped to 23-3 early on in their reply, with India's supreme fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah removing both openers on his way to figures of 3-7.

India kept the pressure on to ensure Afghanistan fell far behind the required rate, before they were dismissed for 134 off the final ball, with Arshdeep Singh taking 3-36.

The other two sides in Group One, Australia and Bangladesh, play in Antigua later on Thursday night.
