India will be squaring up against Afghanistan in match 33 of the T20 World Cup 2021 at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The match will commence on Wednesday, November 03 at 07:30 PM IST. Here are our IND vs AFG Dream11 Predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
IND vs AFG Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Will India finally conjure up a win in this World Cup?
India put a lacklustre show against the Kiwis. They could not marry intent with execution. India’s plan of inducting Ishan Kishan at the top backfired. Rohit Sharma came into bat at number 3 but failed to accelerate in the middle overs. India ended with a paltry score of 110. Their bowling was not any better too. Except for Jasprit Bumrah, India’s bowling attack lacked venom.
India are all but out from the World Cup. They need to win their remaining 3 games and win them big.
India’s team combination will be watched pretty closely. The form of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Shami, and Hardik Pandya has been a concern. Will India persist with the same trio? Do they have enough arsenal in the backups to replace them? There are plenty of questions lying ahead of India, the manner in which they answer them might well decide their fate in the tournament.
Can Afghanistan continue their free-flowing run?
Afghanistan sit pretty at 2nd in the points table with 2 wins out of 3 games. They lost narrowly to Pakistan. Afghans are the only team who have enjoyed batting first. They demolished both Namibia and Scotland. Afghans will look to make another giant kill against heavyweights, India. They can’t get a better opportunity to go one up over India.
