In the 33rd match of the T20 World Cup, India will face Afghanistan in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday night. India has dominated Afghanistan in T20Is in the past. 

IND v AFG: Match Details

  • Date – Wednesday, November 03, 2021
  • Time – 7:30 PM IST
  • Venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

IND v AFG Match Preview:

India's batting hasn't done well in this tournament so far. However, they will expect KL Rahul to fire at the top. If Ishan Kishan plays, he is likely to move to the middle order and Rohit Sharma back in the opening slot. It will be interesting to see if Suryakumar Yadav will be back in the playing XI and for whom. 


The bowling, too, hasn't been impressive. Jasprit Bumrah was the lone bowler who looked threatening in the last match. R Ashwin is likely to replace Varun Chakravarthy in this match. 

Afghanistan's batting has been on another level. All the batters have played with an attacking approach and helped the team post a good total; they have batted in the first innings every time. With Asghar Afghan now not available, Usman Ghani is likely to replace him. 

If Mujeeb Ur Rahman is fit to play, Afghanistan will play three high-quality spin bowlers. Rashid Khan is in a great rhythm and will be a threat for the Indian batters.
