India death bowlers to rescue in World Cup

SHOWS: SOUTHAMPTON, ENGLAND, UK (JUNE 22, 2019) (ICC - NO RESALES) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) INDIAN BATSMAN, KEDAR JADHAV, SAYING: "Obviously, we had belief in our death specialist bowlers.

Obviously, Bumrah is Number 1 bowler.

We knew we had just one wicket to break that partnership, and the next batsman would be finding it difficult to score those runs in that scenario.

So we knew just one wicket away from that crucial win." 2.

WHITE FLASH 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) INDIAN BATSMAN, KEDAR JADHAV, SAYING: "I guess the wicket was slow outside, and especially they were playing with three, almost four spinners, and the ball was little turning when we were playing, and it was slow.

So it was difficult to play shots.

When the wicket is such, you need to analyze what sort of score we are looking at.

So our actual plan was to look for around 250.

250, 260, we were targeting, but we fell short by 20, 30 runs.

So going into the fielding, we knew that we have to make up those 15, 20 runs in fielding.

Obviously, credit to the bowlers that they defended this small total." STORY: India never lost faith in their death-overs specialists, batsman Kedar Jadhav said after his team survived a huge scare against Afghanistan in Saturday's (June 22) dramatic low-scoring World Cup match.

The Afghans fell agonisingly short of a major upset after restricting India to their lowest total of the tournament, 224-8 on a slow track.

At 190 for six in the 46th over with Mohammad Nabi well set and Rashid Khan in the middle, Afghanistan were well in the match.

Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal dismissed Rashid before quicks Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami combined to derail Afghanistan's chase.

Afghanistan captain Gulbadin Naib said he was disappointed but not too downhearted after his team were defeated.

Despite having now recorded six straight losses and sitting bottom of the table, the tournament's rank outsiders have been growing in confidence and holding their own, particularly with their batting.

One key player on Saturday was all-rounder Mohammad Nabi, who took two wickets and was his side's highest scorer with 52 runs before falling in the last over of the day as India's Mohammed Shami claimed a hat-trick to win the match
