India vs Afghanistan 3rd T20I Preview

India have sealed the series 2-0 and will look to register a clean sweep by winning the final game of the series. They have dominated in both the games so far and will be favorites again in this one.

India:

India have a lot of positives in the 2 games so far and will be happy with the way the Shivam Dube and Yashasvi Jaiswal have performed and will be looking at the bigger picture which is the World Cup.

With the ball, their bowlers have been good in both the games. Their spinners have been clinical in the middle overs and that is where they are dominating. The duo of Axar Patel and Ravi Bishnoi bowled well in the last game and picked up 2 wickets each.

With the bat, Skipper Sharma is yet to score a run in this series and he will be hungry for runs in this game. Shivam Dube has been fantastic and scored 63* runs in the last game. Yashasvi is also looking in top form at the top and scored 68 runs in the last game.

Afghanistan:

Afghanistan on the other hand, have not won any game but have surely given the home side a tough fight. They have batted reasonably well but their bowling has been poor in the both the games so far.

With the bat, one of their openers need to go blazing in the powerplay which is missing so far. Gulbadin Naib was promoted to no 3 in the last game and scored 57 runs and is likely to again bat at 3.

With the ball, their bowlers have been unlucky due to dew but have still not bowled that well and have failed to pick up wickets at regular intervals. Karim Janat was the top wicket taker in the last game and picked up 2 wickets.

Quotes

“I think we’ve played some good cricket in parts. But there’s also times where we perhaps haven’t been as good as we expect from ourselves. We’re hoping to get closer to good 40 overs from ourselves tomorrow and be able to put some pressure on the Indian side, specially in the middle overs with the ball. It’s something we’ve got to get better at if we want to compete in the World Cup.” – Afghanistan head coach” –  Jonathan Trott.

“As bowlers we feel we have nothing to lose here [Chinnaswamy stadium]. The batters are under pressure to score more and more boundaries. That’s where as a bowler you’re in the game and you can get more wickets as well.” – Arshdeep Singh.
