Sarojini Bishi

Kingston Oval: India will start their Super Eight campaign against Afghanistan on Thursday in the current T20 World Cup cricket. The pitch here will definitely not trouble the batsman as much as in America. Rashid Shan, Noor Ahammad and Mohammad Nabi have all impressed with their bowling, which will be a big challenge for the Indian batsmen to deal with the Afghanistan spinners.

Team India captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have also practiced hard. Suryakumar yadav is expected to be India’s trump card against Afghanistan. He also said strongly that he will deal with the spinner. Similarly, how Rishabh Pant is batting at the third position will be monitored.

Afghanistan coach Jonathan Trott said that the American pitch and here are completely different. The bowlers have to pay attention to this. India has a strong batting line-up and a slight mistake will make them miss the match, he said. Despite playing 2 T20 matches at Kingsta Oval, India could not win.

Similarly, India’s T20 record against Afghanistan is good. It is assumed that the Rohit forces will advance by passing it. Title aspirants India will definitely aim to win this match. There is still confusion about who will be played between Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Jadav.
