India and Afghanistan will clash in the 33rd match of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will cover IND vs AFG Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.


India performed poorly in the tournament as they lost both matches and are at 5th position on Group 2’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup points table.

KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan opened the innings, but both got out in the powerplay and did not score many runs. In the middle-order, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Rishabh Pant took a lot of pressure and batted slowly. In the end, Hardik Pandya and Jadeja scored some crucial runs and helped India reach a minimum total.

Similar to the batting performance, the bowlers also have not been able to perform well. J Bumrah has picked up two wickets in the tournament so far, and the remaining bowlers have been wicketless.

India needs to perform exceptionally well in the remaining matches, and depending on the results of other games, they have a very slight chance of qualifying for the Semi-Finals.


Afghanistan has won two out of three matches and is at the 2nd position on Group 2’s ICC T20 World Cup points table.

The openers, Hazratullah and Shahzad, have provided a brilliant start in a couple of matches. At No.3, Gurbaz is looking slightly out of form. Asghar Afghan played a sharp knock in his last International game in the middle-order, and Nabi also scored some quick runs down the order.

The pace-attack considered a weak link in the team, performed brilliantly in the last match. Naveen Ul Haq and Hamid Hassan picked up three wickets each, and Gulbadin Naib got two scalps. Rashid has been the most consistent bowler on the team.

Afghanistan can qualify for the Semi-Finals if they can defeat anyone team between India and New Zealand.
