Preview

India (IND) will be up against Afghanistan (AFG) in the 2nd T20I of the Afghanistan tour of India at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore on January 14. India defeated Afghanistan in the last game quite easily and lead the three-match series 1-0 and would be looking forward to sealing the series in this coming game itself while Afghanistan would be eyeing a comeback here. 


The last match between the two teams, which was the first game of the series was played at the PCA IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali where India had won the toss and elected to field. Being put to bat, Afghanistan made a brilliant start as their opening stand lasted for 50 runs. Although they did score well for the first wicket they seemed to be having a meek approach. They played the defensive game on a pitch that was good to bat on and it wasn’t until Mohammad Nabi, who showed his experience that they were able to put up an average total of 158 runs on the scoreboard.


In the chase, all eyes were fixed on skipper Rohit Sharma, who was back in the side after a long time but a miscommunication with Gill led him to being run out on a silver duck. They then had a decent partnership for the second and third wicket. Shivam Dube, who came to bat at four, played a brilliant knock and kept finding regular boundaries. Jitesh too contributed well with his short but explosive innings. The final touch was then given by Rinku and Dube finished the game in style with a six as India won the game comfortably by six wickets.

Pitch Report

Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore offers a pitch that can be regarded as a bowler’s paradise. Pacers, in particular, enjoy bowling here with a lot of assistance offered from the track. Batters may have to work hard to find boundaries and hence running between the wickets gets important. Teams prefer to bat first here after winning the toss with the average first innings score being 132.

Rohit Sharma IND | BAT

Rohit has come back into the T20I setup after a long time and would be eager to perform well with the bat. He is a true leader in every sense and should be the leader of your side as well.

Virat Kohli IND | BAT

Virat too can be a great pick for captaincy roles in your fantasy team. With an average close to 50, his consistency makes him a beast in this format of the game.

Shivam Dubey IND | ALL

Dubey was rightly awarded Player of the Match in the last encounter as he contributed exceedingly well with the bat as well as the ball. He scalped a wicket while scoring 60 runs with the bat to win India the game.

Rahmat Shah

AFG | BAT

Rahmat did not look in good touch with the bat in the last game. You can make your fantasy team without including him in it.
