Preview

On Thursday, January 11, at the Punjab Cricket Association’s IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali, India will play Afghanistan IND vs AFG in the opening Twenty20 International of the three-match series. Between the two teams, this is their first bilateral series. Three T20 World Cups and one Asia Cup have seen them compete against one another. All four of these games have been won by India.

India and South Africa recently played a Twenty20 International series last month. Rain caused one of the matches to conclude in a no result, meaning that the three-match series ended 1-1. In the game’s shortest format, India triumphed over South Africa in their last encounter. Returning to captain the team is Rohit Sharma. The T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final was when he last participated in a T20I match.

In their most recent Twenty20 International series, Afghanistan triumphed 2-1 over the United Arab Emirates over the three games. After taking four wickets in hand and chasing down the target of 127 runs in 18.3 overs, Afghanistan won their most recent Twenty20 International match by four wickets. A few changes have been made to the team that played the UAE. Sediqullah Atal, Mohammad Ishaq, and Darwish Rasooli have been left from the team. Included are Gulbadin Naib, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Ikram Alikhil.
