Highlights of India vs. Afghanistan Rain caused the summit match to be postponed in the Asian Games final, and the team led by Ruturaj Gaikwad won the gold medal.
The men’s squad is now replicating what the women’s team did. Despite the fact that it did not come over as they had hoped. The starting lineup that Ruturaj Gaikwad used against Bangladesh in the semifinal game remained the same. With India wanting to bowl first on the moist track following a 20-minute delay brought on by rain, it appeared to be a solid toss to win as well.
Before the spinners on Ravi Bishnoi and Sai Kishore and Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep picked two more wickets, the bowlers had reduced Afghanistan to 5 for 4. But in the second half of their innings, Afghanistan put up a fantastic fightback.
Shahidullah Kamal and Afsar Zzai, the team’s fourth-wicket combo, put on a 37-run partnership. The former took the lead before Gulbadin Naib took over after Zazai was dismissed. While Kamal approached his personal fifty, the two forged an undefeated half-century stand as Afghanistan rallied from 52 for 5 in the 11th over to 112 for 5 in the penultimate over.
However, rain again halted the activities in Hangzhou. After a protracted delay, the officials finally called off the match, giving India—the higher-seeded team of the two competing teams the gold medal and Afghanistan for the third time in history the silver.
Record breaking scores have made India proud and the players are feeling their victory. Such victory brought glory in the face of their families and their coaches. It is a proud moment for the country and people are celebrating this success.
