The high-voltage clash witnessed both teams tallying 212 runs in their respective 20 overs and being evenly matched in the initial Super Over.

His exceptional batting display played a pivotal part in India’s authoritative exhibition throughout the series.
The finale of the series unfolded with two riveting Super Overs. In the primary Super Over, Afghanistan established a target of 16/1. Rohit Sharma’s dynamic innings, accentuated by two pivotal sixes, propelled India to even out the score.
In the subsequent Super Over, India confronted Afghanistan’s bowling onslaught. Rohit Sharma showcased his batting finesse by commencing with a six and a four in the initial two deliveries. Nevertheless, the thrill was curbed as Rinku Singh was captured behind for a duck, and Rohit was run out on the subsequent ball, culminating in India amassing 11.
The enthralling twist of events persisted as Ravi Bishnoi, representing the Indian squad, made a substantial impact by ousting Mohammad Nabi off the initial delivery and Rahmanullah Gurbaz with the third, cementing India’s triumph in the nail-biting encounter. The series, characterized by high-voltage performances and revolutionary accomplishments, revalidated India’s preeminence in the T20 format.
