After a successful start to the series for India at Mohali, the action has now shifted to Indore where the home team will aim to win the series. With Virat Kohli coming in, most likely Tilak Varma will have to sit out. Rohit Sharma will also want to forget his final outing, where he unfortunately got run out for a duck, and look to get a fresh start with Shubman Gill. Shivam Dube also showcased top form in the last game while Jitesh Sharma and Rinku Singh have been doing good work when given the opportunity. Given the flat track at the Holkar Cricket Stadium, the side might go with three spinners and two pacers yet again with Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh and Mukesh Kumar.
On the contrary, Afghanistan were decent but slow in the first game, which is something they would want to correct tonight on the flat deck. Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Hazratullah Zazai, and Azmatullah Omarzai will look to strike from ball one, while others too will aim to have a better show with the bat. Fans would once again hope to see some fireworks from Mohammad Nabi, as he was the only positive in the last match for the visitors. The hard hitter played an exceptional knock of 42 off 27 balls to take Afghanistan to a decent score. With eight players among the Men in Blue who can bat, Afghan bowlers will need to do an exceptional task of containing Indian batters.
Both countries played six T20I matches against each other, with India winning five and one ending without a result.
