Southampton, June 22 (IBNS): Afghanistan spinners showed their magic on field as they restricted the strong Indian batting lineup to 224 runs for the loss of eight wickets in a World Cup match here on Saturday.

India have remained unbeaten in the tournament so far.

However, after the strong performance by the Afghanistan spinners, hopes of witnessing another upset can take place at the end of the game.

Apart from Virat Kohli (67) and Jadav (52), the rest of the batting line up struggled in front of the spirited Afghanistan side.

Rohit Sharma (1) departed early, but after Virat and KL Rahul (30) stabilised the innings Afghanistan bowlers successfully broke the partnership by taking the wicket of the new opener of the Men In Blue.

Rahul, who is playing the second match as an opener, was dismissed by Nabi.

Vijay Shankar (29) and MS Dhoni (28) could not convert the start they got in their innings.

Jadhav contributed three boundaries and a six which helped India's cause at the end.

Hardik Pandya added just 7 runs with his willow.

Gulbadin Naib and Naib picked up two wickets each.
