After registering a victory in the second T20 international and clinching the series in Indore, Team India (IND) now face Afghanistan (AFG) in the third and final match of the series. The dead rubber is all set to be played on Wednesday, January 17, at the iconic M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. The hosts will then lock horns with England for a mouth-watering five-match Test series on home soil while the Afghans tour Sri Lanka for a full-fledged series.

Talking about the ongoing series, Shivam Dube and Axar Patel have been the standout performers for the Men in Blue so far. The former has smashed half-centuries in both matches while spin bowler Axar has delivered solid spells of 2/23 (4) and 2/17 (4). Explosive middle-order batter Dube slammed an unbeaten 60 off 40 with five fours and two sixes in the opening encounter in Mohali where he also won the Player of the Match award.

He then carried his good form to hit 63* off just 32 which included five fours and four maximums in Indore. Though, the Player of the Match award went to spinner Axar for his match-winning economical spell. Young left-handed opening batter Yashasvi Jaiswal also showcased his skill and talent as he hammered 68 off 34 in the second match which laid the foundation for the run-chase. Though, India are a strong favourite to complete a (3-0) whitewash, Afghan captain Ibrahim Zadran, and his men will look to sign off the series on a high by claiming their first-ever win over India in the shortest format.
