IND V AFG T20 World Cup 2021: The Indian skipper Virat Kohli and the team have a very slight chance of getting back in the tournament and making it to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup. To keep the hope of the team and the fans alive, Team India has to win the match against Afghanistan with a very good margin at any cost. On the other hand, Afghanistan skipper Mohammed Nabi and the team are hoping for an unconventional win against a strong team like India.
Indian batting vs Rashid Khan’s spin: A contest to watch
Rashid Khan is known for his spin bowling across. He is also the highest wicket-taking bowler in the T20 International cricket. Rashid Khan has played in the IPL for Sunrisers Hyderabad and knows how Indian batsmen can be tricked via his spin. However, Virat and company will be preparing themselves for being a better spin playing lineup. Rashid has played 54 international T20 matches and taken 102 wickets, which shows his talent as a wicket-taking bowler. Looking at Rashid’s record against captain Kohli, he has managed to dismiss Virat only once in the IPL. This T20 World Cup contest will be worth a watch.
IND vs AFG T20 World Cup 2021 Predicted Playing XI:
India: Team India had made a couple of changes in the previous game against New Zealand where KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan came as openers. Captain Virat also stated in the last match that Surya Kumar had a back spasm so we aren’t sure about his role.
- Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami
Afghanistan: Afghanistan’s middle-order batsman, Asghar Afghan announced his retirement recently. This move will definitely affect the new playing XI of the Afghanistan team. However, captain Mohammad Nabi might include Mujeeb ur Rahman who was excluded in the last match due to his injury.
- Mohammed Shahzad, Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Usman Ghani, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammed Nabi, Gulbadin Naib, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Hameed Hasan, Naveen-ul-Haq
