Jasprit Bumrah imitates Marcus Rashford's celebration after dismissing Ibrahim Zadran | WATCH
Afghanistan won the toss and chose to bat first in their World Cup 2023 encounter against India in Delhi. However, they lost their opener, Ibrahim Zadran, early on, with India's Jasprit Bumrah striking. Afghanistan has remained untouched, while the hosts have made one change.
The 2018 ODI Cricket World Cup is currently in its ninth encounter, with India and Afghanistan facing off. Afghanistan kept their lineup unchanged and chose to bat first after winning the toss.
Conversely, India made the decision to drop Ravichandran Ashwin from their starting XI in favour of Shardul Thakur. When Jasprit Bumrah dismissed Ibrahim Zadran early, he took the first wicket for India.
Rahul was able to pull the catch behind the wickets because he caused an edge to form on the bat. Bumrah mimicked football player Marcus Rashford's celebration by pointing his finger at the head of the mindgames shortly after dismissing the batter.
Fans are swooning over the same video, which has gone viral. Bumrah has been back to full strength for India since his injury, taking wickets with the new ball. In his opening attack against Australia, he also sent Mitchell Marsh for a duck.
Afghanistan, however, has faltered after a strong start as Indian bowlers are finding their lengths. Similar to their victory against Australia in Chennai, India will be eager to keep the opposition to a small total.
Still, Delhi's pitch is excellent for batting. This game will put the bowling attack to the test, which is excellent for the squad ahead of more difficult matches in the competition.
