T20 World Cup 2024: INDIA vs AFGHANISTAN, who will win today’s T20 World Cup match between IND vs AFG?

After a brief break Indian team is ready to face off Afghanistan for the match number 43 in the Super 8 of ICC T20 World Cup. This match will be played at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. This will be the first meeting between the two sides in the Super 8 stage. India cleared the group stage with three wins from four matches. While Afghanistan has emerged as one of the most improved teams in this tournament.

Afghanistan finally tasted defeat in their previous fixture against the hosts West Indies. The bowling unit was responsible for giving easy runs and were not in the right frame of mind. They were unable to stop the West Indies batters from hitting the boundaries and scoring quick runs.

Gulbadin Naib picked up 2 wickets at an economy of 7 in 2 overs. Azmatullah Omarzai and Naveen-ul-Haq picked up a single wicket each but displayed an economy of 20.50 and 10.25 respectively.

Team India had the potential to win all of their group stage fixtures but unfortunately, their previous game, against Canada, was abandoned due to interruptions from rains. They defeated Ireland, Pakistan, and the USA at the group stage and led the point table of Group A.

The comeback man - Rishabh Pant has been the leading scorer for the team with 96 runs in 3 matches at an average of 48 and a strike rate of 124.67. Skipper Rohit Sharma has also done well by scoring 68 runs in 3 matches at an average of 34 and a strike rate of 123.63.

On the bowling front, vice-captain Hardik Pandya has come out as the leading wicket-taker for the team with 7 wickets in 3 matches while showcasing an economy of 9.28. Arshdeep Singh is standing next to him also with 7 wickets in 3 fixtures at an economy of 10.71.
