Afghanistan is invited to bat for India

The match is a ‘survival-death’ for India in the T20 World Cup. Equally important for Afghanistan. With such an equation, the Afghans sent Team India to bat after winning the toss at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday (November 3).

Team India won both the matches in the T20I

On the other hand, the Afghans, who have already shown their strength in the sorter format of cricket, want to surprise India.

But what over-confidence became yesterday. Mighty India was proud in two matches in total. But Afghanistan was supposed to be the opponent. But those Afghans are now increasing the pressure on the Indian camp before the match. Because in this match the danger is slipping.

But before the do-or-die match, the whole team relied on practice. A day before the match, Team India batting coach Vikram Rathore said, “We have to win first. Later you can think of run rate. Cricketers are aware of their performance. They know exactly what to do. We still have three matches in hand. A final decision on the XI has not been made yet.

On the other hand, Afghans are playing as a team in the tournament. Jazai-Shehzad-Gulbazar are giving flying start. In bowling, Rashid and Mujib are spreading terror in the opposition camp. The whole team is mentally ready for India.

Hamid Hossain, the pacer of the Afghanistan cricket team, said, “We are not thinking about India but only about our performance.” We can play with confidence. If we can beat India in a World Cup, it will be a great achievement for our cricket. Such opportunities may not always come.

Meanwhile, in the ongoing T20 World Cup where India was the hot favorite, India lost their first two matches and were cornered. While looking for the reason for India’s poor performance, many thought that the team may have broken down.

Former Pakistan pace star Shoaib Akhtar

gave the same indication in Kohli’s disappointing performance. “Two camps have been set up within the Indian team,” Shoaib said on his YouTube channel. One team is for Kohli, the other is against Kohli. ‘

However, Shoaib asked the India captain to pay his respects. “Kohli is a great cricketer,” said Shoaib. He should be respected even if he can’t make the right decision in two matches. ‘

India lost the first match against Pakistan. India lost to Kiwis in the second match. Rohit Sharma was removed from the opening slot against New Zealand and sent to number three. Go down to four huge.
