It was a discourse which was spelled out in the second ODI as well as India just about managed to scram their way through to a win with Afghanistan finally managing to get the better of the Indians in the foregone contest.
Restricting India to a mere 152, Afghanistan managed to persevere in a low scoring match to squirm their way through to a 3 wicket win and with it bridge the gap between the two sides in the series.
