Rohit Sharma is India's new T20I captain and the BCCI wants him to captain the team in ODIs as well.

Virat Kohli was in full mood during India’s match against Afghanistan. India had a complete game and the skipper enjoyed every moment of the game.

He was patrolling at the boundary rope when he heard a song from the famous Bollywood movie Ram Lakhan. Virat was seen mimicking Anil Kapoor’s dance moves and the video went viral in no time.

Earlier, Afghanistan never looked likely to come close before finishing on 144-7 to lose its second game in four matches. Ravichandran Ashwin, playing his first game of the tournament, picked up 2-14 and buckled Afghanistan in the middle overs with fellow spinner Ravindra Jadeja.

“Much better wicket as well,” Kohli said. “In the other two games as well, if we just had two overs of that free-flowing batting capability, that could have sent the message to the opposition that we’ve put them under pressure.”

Despite the big win, India’s slim chance to progress into the semifinals depends on whether it can beat Scotland and Namibia by big margins while other results also go in its favour.

“Net run-rate was on the back of our mind,” Kohli said. “We spoke in the team meeting that we have to focus on the chance we have (to qualify for the semifinals) and stay positive and hunt that chance down.”
