Afghanistan vs India on June 20


Although both teams have garnered three victories from four matches, their standings in their respective groups diverged significantly. India ascended to the pinnacle of Group A, aided by the abandonment of their final league match against Canada due to inclement weather. Conversely, Afghanistan secured the second position in Group C, following a demoralizing 104-run defeat by the co-hosts, West Indies. India boast a dominant record against Afghanistan in T20Is, having emerged victorious in six out of their eight encounters, with one match yielding no result and one getting tied. However, their previous clash, the final match of the bilateral series, was a riveting spectacle, necessitating two Super Overs to reach a conclusion. Given Afghanistan's formidable form this time around, a fierce and closely contested match is anticipated. The conditions, highly conducive for the Afghans, given their potent spinners coupled with their propensity to excel in high-stakes encounters, promise an enthralling battle. India's pace battery is something Afghanistan should be wary about, and it promises an intense battle between the Afghan openers and the new-ball pair of Arshdeep Singh and Jasprit Bumrah. 

Best economical pick – India's young pace sensation Arshdeep Singh was the pick of the bowlers in the game against USA with a four wicket haul. Arshdeep can potentially trouble the Afghan openers with his ability to swing the ball into the right-handed batters.

Top captains & vice captains – Afghanistan opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz has been the best batter for Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup. His ability to strike the ball clean and score big runs will make the Indian team wary of his threat. India's hopes of getting early wickets will rest on the shoulders of their star pacer Jasprit Bumrah. The pacer has been in great form in the last few months and his ability to take wickets with the new ball and old will not be lost on the Afghan side.

Smart pick – Left-arm pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi has been one of the best bowlers of the T20 World Cup and with his ability to swing the ball he could pose a huge challenge to the Indian top order.

Cautious Pick – Veteran batter Najibullah Zadran has failed to get going with the bat and this has made him a weak link in the team. With all the experience he has with the bat, Najibullah Zadran needs to start firing for his team.

My XI – Rahmanullah Gurbaz (Captain), Jasprit Bumrah (Vice-Captain), Arshdeep Singh, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Rashid Khan, Shivam Dube, Ibrahim Zadran, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli
