Team India picked the bones out of Karim Janat's bowling in the 20th over of the innings in the ongoing 3rd T20I against Afghanistan at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Rohit Sharma and Rinku Singh joined forces to hit the right-arm seamer for 36 runs in the over, including a six off a no-ball.

Rohit, who completed a century in the 19th over, chalked up a boundary in the first ball over square leg region. The 2nd delivery saw the veteran opener smash a full toss in the slot as the ball hit the roof of the Chinnaswamy before landing back on the field. With Janat having overstepped, Rohit smashed another six off the wide long-on, followed by a single to give the strike to Rinku. The following three deliveries from Janat disappeared into the stands over the leg-side to make it five maximums in the over.

Team India win after match extends to two super overs:

The Men in Blue left Afghanistan heartbroken as they came out on top after twin super overs. Chasing a mammoth 213 for victory, Afghanistan openers started well, with Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran, and Gulbadin Naib hammering half-centuries. Mohammad Nabi's cameo of 34 off 16 deliveries was equally critical.

With scores at the end of the first super over levelled, the match went to another one. Ravi Bishnoi was tasked with bowling the 2nd one as he took the wickets of Nabi and Gurbaz to seal a whitewash for the hosts.
