23:32 (IST)

India and Afghanistan produced an encounter that is a very strong contender for 'Match of the Tournament'. After holding them to a tie in the Asia Cup encounter, Afghanistan produced another spirited performance against Virat Kohli and Co, especially with the ball, restricting a famed batting lineup to a rare sub-par total after being asked to bowl. Kudos to Mohammad Nabi to giving the Afghan fans hope of breaking their losing run till the final over, ultimately perishing to Shami's brilliance. 

India become the third team after Australia and New Zealand to register 50-plus World Cup wins and also maintain their unbeaten run in the ongoing tournament. Time to now shift our attention to the ongoing match between West Indies and New Zealand at Manchester, where the Windies are off to a jittery start in their chase of the challenging 292-run target. Follow live updates here.

23:19 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain: We're playing good cricket, win the toss and think 260 would be good. At the halfway mark, we had some doubts, but in the end we had belief we could win this game. As soon as I went in, I understood the pace of the pitch. Cross-batted shots not for this pitch. It was about playing with the straight bat and rotating the strike. Work yourself into an innings. With three quality wrist-spinners, it was always going to be difficult. Our shot selection could have been a little better. The way we want to use him, smartly, depending on the conditions. He's a bowler who can do damage at this stage of the innings. We wanted to finish him off on 49, leaving Shami with the final over. Overall, the bowling performance was outstanding. Shami was really, really good today, especially the first spell. We selected the squad because we knew the guys are hungry. This game was way more important for us because it didn't go as planned. When things don't go as planned, that's when you show character. We take a lot of heart from this win. 

23:17 (IST)

Gulbadin Naib, Afghanistan captain: We played really well in the first innings in the bowling department. We bowled well. We did well with the bat as well but credit goes to Bumrah and other bowlers.The wicket was really good for batting during the first half. The spinners stuck to the plan, and they did really well. We had other options than Rashid and Mujeeb, but in the backend, Aftab and I also bowled well, but India is a good side, and a favourite side. The total was not that much (to chase) but in the middle, we needed some 80s and 100s, 20s and 30s aren't enough against a team like this.  Rashid bowled really well. Also, it was a good game. When chasing 220s, you should take the game the longer and take the responsibility.We have lost four games very badly, but last two games we have played really well. This is tough cricket against high-ranking teams, and you have to fight your best.

23:08 (IST)

Well, well. The expected result, in unexpected fashion. But really, Afghanistan caused a lot of their problems themselves. If you think back to all of the overs that went for one or two runs earlier in the innings, their top-order batsmen could just have showed a bit more intent, and given them a few extra overs to play with at the end. This was a chase they should have won in 45 overs, not trying to get there in the 50th. It actually took some poor play from Afghanistan to keep India in the game, even though there was some good bowling by India.

23:08 (IST)

Shami gets a hat-trick. If you wanted a way for this game to end, it would have been this. What a finish. Afghanistan ran out of steam in the last stretch, but make no mistake this has been a brilliant fight from them. India were made to work hard but their superior bowling attack came to the party today. Pacers should get all the credit, especially Pandya, and they have just managed to brush past Afghanistan. Didn't think we would get to utter these words when the tournament started. Brilliant day of cricket! 

23:08 (IST)

Jasprit Bumrah is the Man of the Match! 

Jasprit Bumrah: The captain has so much trust in you, that gives you a lot of confidence. Over here we saw that the wicket was getting slower. Was necessary to bowl accurate and stump to stump. Bit of reverse swing as well. Sometimes when you run after wickets, you don't get wickets. It was about increasing the pressure and creating chances. (Shami back in the mix) That gives us healthy competition in the side. We talk to each other on plans and how the things are going. When everybody's chipping in with wickets, it's a great sign.

After 49.5 overs,Afghanistan 213/10 ( Ikram Ali Khil (W) 7 , )

Nabi smacks the ball down the ground to not only bring up his half-century, but to give the Afghan fans a real sense of hope of pulling off a massive upset. Shami though, gets rid of Nabi two balls later, the set batsman holing the ball down the ground to get himself dismissed, thereby dealing a major blow to Afghanistan's hopes. Shami then seals it rather clinically, castling both Aftab and Mujeeb to celebrate India's 50th World Cup victory with a hat-trick!

India vs Afghanistan LIVE SCORE, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match Updates: World Cup hat-trick for Mohammed Shami in his first match of the 2019 World Cup! Mujeeb is the last man dismissed, as Afghanistan are bowled out for 213! India snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, winning by 11 runs!

Preview: Virat Kohli will hope to maintain the winning momentum at the ICC Cricket World Cup when India take on struggling Afghanistan at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. Here's all you need to know about the match.

India have not tasted a defeat so far in the tournament, having won three of the four matches they played with one game resulting in a washout. They have a total of seven points and are in the top four of the points table. Afghanistan have lost all five matches in the tournament and beating India would take a giant effort from their part. The off-field issues are also troubling the team.

Former chief selector Dawlat Ahmadzai has blamed the coaching staff for the debacle which irked current head coach Phil Simmons.

"I am in the middle of a World Cup and trying to get our team to perform to the level we expect but at the end of the World Cup I will tell the Afghanistan people about the part that Mr Dawlat Ahmadzai had to play in our preparation and his part in the dismissal of #AsgharAfghan," Simmons had tweeted.

Meanwhile, India pacer Jasprit Bumrah takes his net sessions seriously and said he had no plans to drop his intensity during practice, even after injuring team mate Vijay Shankar.

“We obviously don’t want to injure a batsman...It was not the aim, it was unfortunate that he got hit. He’s okay, he’s fine. But you have to do all your preparations and practise all your deliveries.” Bumrah said.
