AFG vs IND: A Drastic change in the indian team..!?

Rahul Dravid has said that there will be a change in the indian team for today's t20 world cup match against Afghanistan. The icc t20 world cup 2024 is currently underway. With the group stage matches completed, the Super 8 round started from yesterday. With a total of 8 teams selected for the Super 8 round, 12 teams including New Zealand, Sri Lanka, and pakistan left the group stage. In the Super 8 round, 8 teams are divided into 2 groups each. india, afghanistan, Bangladesh, and australia are in the first group and south africa, england, the west indies, and the USA are in the second group. In this, the first Super 8 round match that took place last night, south africa - USA teams clashed. south africa won by 18 runs.
Next, there are two matches today. The west indies vs england match was played today at 6 am IST, in which the england team won. The india vs afghanistan (IND vs AFG) match will be held at 8 pm tonight. afghanistan entered the Super 8 round after defeating New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and uganda in the group stage. Although afghanistan is seen as a strong team, the indian team has more chances to win. However, being a t20 match, today's game is sure to be an exciting one as the match can turn either way anytime.

The indian team played three matches in the group stage, only one of which was canceled due to rain. In this, the indian team is playing in only one playing eleven. The indian team has been playing in a combination of three main fast bowlers and two all-round spinners. In this case, there is a possibility of a change in the playing eleven in today's match. rahul dravid, the head coach of the indian team, has informed about this. And rahul dravid was asked how difficult was the decision not to include kuldeep yadav, who has been performing well for the past few months, in the playing eleven. He said, "It's difficult to leave anyone out in this environment. The four guys we kept out in the last matches were all quality players, to be honest. We went with this combination as per the environment and the need at that particular venue. The pitches there were not very favorable for spinners, but for fast bowlers."

"And we wanted to make sure we had depth in our playing eleven on those pitches. That's why we went with that combination, you know. The pitch might be different here. You might need an extra spinner here and then someone like kuldeep yadav or Chahal. They will play well for us. Let's expect it," he said.
