India vs Afghanistan T20 Playing 11 Prediction | IND vs AFG Playing 11

Rohit Sharma is set to play his first T20 match after November 2022. This is the first T20 series between both countries. A positive aspect for India is that Afghanistan’s dangerous spinner Rashid Khan is ruled out for the entire series.

Before the T20 World Cup, all eyes are on Captain Rohit Sharma in the first match of the Indian team’s last T20 series. Alongside Rohit, Virat Kohli was also expected to make a comeback in this match against Afghanistan on Thursday, but coach Rahul Dravid clarified on the eve of the match that Virat would not play due to personal reasons. Kohli will be available for the last two matches of the series.

Rohit Sharma will play his first T20 match after November 2022. This is the first T20 series between both countries. It’s good news for India that Afghanistan’s dangerous spinner Rashid Khan is out for the entire series. Rashid underwent surgery last November and has not fully recovered yet.

Opening with Yashasvi: After returning from South Africa, the Indian team gathered at the PCA Stadium on Wednesday. Until evening, it was believed that Rohit and Virat would make a comeback together in T20 after 14 months, but after Dravid’s revelation, all eyes are on Rohit. Rohit and Virat last played together in the T20 World Cup semi-final against England in Australia. Captain Rohit might open with Yashasvi Jaiswal in this match. Local cricketer Shubman Gill could come in at number one. There is also hope for Tilak Varma to play in this match.

Leaving a mark in the final series before the World Cup:

In this final T20 series before the World Cup, Indian cricketers will leave no stone unturned to prove their utility. After this, the selection for the World Cup team will be based on the performance of players in the core group through the IPL. The World Cup is scheduled to be played in the United States and the West Indies in June. Rohit will be responsible for replicating the fast start he gave to the Indian team in the ODI World Cup in the powerplay here.

Responsibility on Rinku as a finisher:

With the absence of Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav, the responsibility to prove his utility as a finisher once again falls on Rinku Singh from Aligarh. He showcased a brilliant performance in South Africa. If he performs well again, his selection in the team for the T20 World Cup will almost be confirmed. After suddenly returning from South Africa, Vidarbha’s Jitesh Sharma or Sanju Samson may get a chance to handle the wicket behind. Jitesh is looking strong in his claim. Shivam Dube might get a chance in place of Hardik. Kuldeep Yadav will lead the spin department.

Captain Rohit says:

Rashid’s absence will be felt: Afghanistan’s captain Ibrahim Zadran believes that the absence of Rashid Khan in the team will be a challenge for them. Ibrahim says that he is not completely fit. We will feel his absence throughout the series. We have to be ready to deal with any situation now. He says that other players have to come forward and prove themselves. Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fazalhaq Farooqi, and Naveen-ul-Haq are also in the team.
