Against Afghanistan, some said he looked like he hit the fielders a lot. But he had a bowler with a seven-two field bowl two straight maidens at him. The West Indies brought out an odd off-side shot that found point. With Australia chasing India's 352, he struck at only 66, and scored 16 off 34 balls from Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah.
