Match 33 of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 has India (IND) taking on Afghanistan (AFG) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
India Team Updates:
Team India are down for the count. With two losses at the start of their campaign, Virat Kohli and co. are desperately in need of a win as they take on Afghanistan.
Indias run has been derailed after two crushing defeats against Pakistan and New Zealand and the performance that they have put in is not worthy of a semi-final spot even though mathematics keeps their hopes alive
Lokesh Rahul and Ishan Kishan will probably open the inning for the India team.
If Suryakumar Yadav, who is suffering from back spasms, is fit and available, one could possibly find both him and Ishan Kishan playing in the middle-order as the team is hardly getting any tangible benefit from Hardik Pandyas presence.
Virat Kohli will lead the India team as a Captain. He is also good Batsman.
Rishabh Pant will do the wicket keeping for India team.
Varun Chakravarthy and Ravindra Jadeja will take care of the spin bowling of the team.
Senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwins inexplicable absence from the playing XI is in focus as India skipper Virat Kohli tries to figure the combination that can bring his teams floundering campaign back on track when it takes on a feisty Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup here on Wednesday.
Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur will lead the pace attack of the team.
Afghanistan Team Updates:
The Afghans, meanwhile, have impressed with their bowling attack leading the way so far.
With Rashid Khan firing on all cylinders, India are in for a tough test, making for an intriguing contest in Abu Dhabi.
Afghanistan have expectedly won their two games against Scotland and Namibia and were in the contest against Pakistan for the better part before Asif Ali took the game away with four sixes in one over.
Mohammad Shahzad and Hazratullah Zazai will probably open the inning for the Afghanistan team. Both are well known inning openers.
The opening duo of burly left-hander Hazratullah Zazai and the rotund and flamboyant Mohammed Shahzad, who lacks in footwork, might find it difficult to deal with Ashwins tricks.
Mohammad Nabi will lead the Afghanistan team as a Captain. He is also a good Alrounder.
Mohammad Shahzad will do the Wicket Keeping duty for his Afghanistan team.
Mohammad Nabi and Rashid-Khan will lead the spin attack of the team.
Hamid Hassan and Naveen-ul-Haq will take care of the pace attack for his team.
Head to Head:
India: 2 Won Afghanistan: 0 Won
India will start as favourties going into this game against AFG.
Disney plus Hotstar and Start Network will live stream the match.
In wicket keeping, both the wicket keepers are good. However Ishan Kishan will be better choice.
