T20 World Cup 2024: Indian team can field this playing-11 against Afghanistan

Team India's T20 World Cup Super-8 campaign is just 1 day away (20 June). In the first match, the Indian team led by Rohit Sharma will face Afghanistan. All eyes will be on the playing-11 of this match. Because India will play this match in the West Indies. Team India played all the matches of Group-A in New York, where the pitch was completely helpful for the bowlers. In such a situation, many veterans believe that if the Caribbean pitches are good for batting, then Yashasvi Jaiswal should be included in the playing-11. Along with this, there is a demand to give a place to Kuldeep Yadav as well.

Will the playing-11 change?

When the Indian team will play the first match of the Super-8 of the T20 World Cup against Afghanistan, all eyes will be on the bat of Virat Kohli, who has been silent for a long time. At the same time, left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav will also be desperate to make a place in the playing-11. There is a lot of discussion about the Indian team. It will be interesting to see whether India will not make any changes in the group stage team or will replace a specialist fast bowler with Kuldeep Yadav, their best spinner for more than a year. At the start of the tournament, captain Rohit Sharma included four all-rounders (Hardik Pandya, Shivam Dubey, Akshar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja) in the playing-11. This strategy proved to be effective for India on the bowler-friendly pitch in New York. This gives depth to batting till number eight. In such a situation, will the captain make any changes on the pitches of West Indies? It will be interesting to see.

If Kuldeep entry, who will be out?

The big question is that if Kuldeep Yadav is included in the playing-11, then who will have to look for the way out. Perhaps one of Mohammad Siraj or Arshdeep Singh may have to be dropped. If we look at the two practice sessions of the Indian team, Kuldeep's claim seems strong due to the help given to spinners by the pitch. The fast bowlers are likely to get swing in the powerplay due to the cold winds around Kensington Oval. Indian fans will also be keeping an eye on Kohli, who has not been able to give his best in this tournament so far. A better performance is expected from him in West Indies.

Yashasvi in ​​place of Dubey?

Middle order batsman Shivam Dubey has not been in his element yet. He could not play freely on the pitches of America, but now he would like to play big shots. Yashasvi Jaiswal can be included in the playing-11 in his place, but the question is at what number will he come to bat in the team. India's star T20 batsman Suryakumar Yadav scored runs against America by playing against his style. At the same time, Hardik Pandya, who is doing great in bowling, has not been successful with the bat. Arshdeep's performance in bowling has improved match by match and he is supporting Jasprit Bumrah well. Axar and Jadeja can also prove useful on a pitch that is helpful for spinners.

India playing-11 could be like this

Rohit Sharma (captain), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dubey, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh.
