Clash of Titans: India vs Afghanistan 3rd T20I Match Preview, Afghanistan in India 2023/24

1 min read

India sealed their series win vs Afghanistan, and players and coaching staff are no doubt proud. What’s the significance of this achievement in a cricket ecosystem that’s fixated on ICC events? Sunday’s six-wicket win has drawn criticism for India’s lack of aggression after winning the toss and choosing to field. The argument is that India should be challenging themselves more ahead of the T20 World Cup. The finale in Bengaluru is India’s final T20I before the World Cup, but with the tournament still five months away, the match’s importance is ambiguous. Afghanistan will look to unshackle Rahmanullah Gurbaz, who has posed a threat to India’s attack. M Chinnaswamy Stadium’s conditions will influence strategy for both sides. The groundstaff have prepared a fresh pitch for the game, expected to favor typical Chinnaswamy conditions. Afghanistan coach Jonathan Trott is open about the experience India will provide them and the areas for improvement.
