Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan opened the innings for hosts and the latter freely scored runs all over the field. He went onto bring his half-century in 47 balls. However, Vijay opted to score on a slow rate.

Shikhar Dhawan continued his aggression with the willow and went on to score century in just 87 balls. The visitors main weapon Rashid Khan was expected to pick crucial wickets but he had a very rare off day and the Afghanistan team was flattered with the ball at Lunch with India posting 157/0 in 26 overs.
