Middle-order batsman Deepak Hooda's scintillating century helped India post a solid score and then the bowlers, led by off-spinning skipper Jayant Yadav (3/37) and supported by Mayank Markande (3/41), cleaned up Afghanistan.
Hooda scored 105.
Both Rana and Bains fell within the space of seven deliveries as Afghanistan came back into the game. The resurgence was short-lived though, as number five batsman Hooda made a brisk 105 off 103 balls, with the help 12 fours and a six.
Hooda anchored the innings excellently and got able assistance from skipper Yadav and Atit Sheth, who made identical scores of 31 each.
Chasing 282 to win, Afghanistan top-order got starts but did not go on to post substantial scores. One-down batsman Shahidullah Kamal made a slow 82-ball 47 before becoming leg-spinner Markande's first scalp.
