IND vs AFG: India or Afghanistan… who will win the Super 8?


Highlights

Indian team has an upper hand against Afghanistan Team India has won 7 T20 matches against Afghanistan Team India is expecting a ‘Virat’ innings from Kohli

New Delhi. The Indian cricket team led by Rohit Sharma will take on Afghanistan on Thursday. Team India will not make the mistake of taking Afghanistan lightly in the Super 8 of T20 World Cup 2024. The Rashid Khan-led team has defeated New Zealand. In this match to be played in Bridgetown, all eyes will be on Virat Kohli, who has not been able to reach double figures in this World Cup. Caribbean pitches are favorable for spinners. In such a situation, it remains to be seen whether wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav gets a chance in this match or not. Kuldeep did not get a chance to play in any match in the group stage.

There is a lot of discussion about the Indian team (IND vs AFG) combination. India will not make any changes to the group stage team or replace any specialist fast bowler with their best spinner in the team for more than a year. At the beginning of the tournament, captain Rohit Sharma had insisted on keeping 4 all-rounders (Hardik Pandya, Shivam Dubey, Axar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja) in the final XI.

IND vs AFG: What will happen if India-Afghanistan Super 8 match gets washed out due to rain? Which team will benefit and which will suffer loss

2 centuries in a match… Indian batsmen resounded against South Africa, captain and vice-captain hit centuries

Rohit Sharma would not like to tinker with this combination
This strategy proved to be effective for India on the bowler-friendly pitch in New York. This gives depth to the batting till number eight and the captain would not want to tamper with this combination. To bring Kuldeep in the team, Mohammad Siraj or Arshdeep Singh will have to be left out. If this happens, Siraj may have to stay out. If we look at the two practice sessions of the Indian team, Kuldeep’s claim is strong as the pitch is helping the spinners. The cold winds around Kensington Oval should provide swing to the fast bowlers in the powerplay.

Virat has not been able to reach double digits
Indian fans will be keeping an eye on Kohli who has not yet reached double figures in this tournament. he/she was not successful in his/her usual style in New York but a better performance is expected from him/her in the West Indies. Dubey, who was included in the team to hit sixes in the middle and death overs, has been seen in his/her form only once so far. he/she could not play freely on the pitches of America but now he/she would like to play big shots. India’s star T20 batsman Suryakumar Yadav scored runs against America by playing contrary to his/her style.

Pandya dominated the bowling but will have to show his/her strength in batting
On the other hand, Hardik Pandya, who is doing great in bowling, has also not been able to score runs. Arshdeep’s performance in bowling has improved match by match and he/she is supporting Jasprit Bumrah well. Akshar and Jadeja will also prove useful on a pitch that is helpful for spinners. On the other hand, the Afghanistan team has reached here after losing to West Indies in the last match of the group stage. Its bowlers, who proved decisive in the first three matches, were proved to be nineteen by the West Indies batsmen.

We have to be cautious of these bigwigs of Afghanistan
Captain Rashid Khan’s hopes will rest on left-arm fast bowler Fazalhaq Farooqi, who has taken the highest number of 12 wickets in the tournament so far. Among the batsmen, good performance will be expected from in-form Rahmanullah Gurbah and Ibrahim Zadran.
