India entered the tournament as one of the main favorites, but now Virat Koli must face Afghanistan to stay in the competition. What you need to know before the match:
Unsuccessful Performance in the Premier League
The recent matches in Dubai against New Zealand and Pakistan have shown the poor preparation of the Indian team. Vikram Rathour, coach of the Indian national team, blamed the difficult pitch for the team’s failures. However, as Rathour himself later added: “As a world champion, you have to find a way to win no matter what, and we failed.”
Afghanistan Spin Attacks
Unlike their Indian counterparts, the Afghan national team is constantly strengthening. Now they have one of the best spin attacks in the tournament: Rashid Khan and Budjir ur Rahman. Rashid set the record with 100 wickets in 53 T20 matches in the shortest amount of time. Ratur also spoke on this topic: “The problem is in their spinners. But if we use our potential, everything will be fine. ”
Dream and Failure
Great hopes are pinned on the Indian national team. Therefore, after two lost matches, a flurry of hate fell upon the leadership of the team and the players. Meanwhile, for Afghanistan, beating the world champion will be a dream come true.
