IND vs AFG 1st T20I Preview
Cricket fans, get ready for a firecracker of a match! The highly anticipated first T20I between India and Afghanistan is all set to take place on Thursday, January 11th, 2024, at the PCA Stadium in Mohali. This clash promises to be a nail-biting affair, with both teams boasting world-class players and a burning desire to win.
The Indian team welcomes back their skipper, Rohit Sharma, who returns to the T20I setup after a brief hiatus. His presence adds immense firepower to the batting lineup, already stacked with the likes of KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav. The return of experienced pacer Jasprit Bumrah further bolsters the bowling attack, providing them with the lethal combination of pace and swing.
While Afghanistan may be without their spin wizard Rashid Khan due to injury, they still possess a formidable squad brimming with young talent. Mujeeb Ur Rahman’s return after the central contract row strengthens their pace attack, while the explosive batting of Hazratullah Zazai and Rahmanullah Gurbaz can wreak havoc on any bowling lineup.

I would slightly lean towards India winning the toss due to the strong combination of home advantage, experienced captain, and possibly favourable weather conditions. However, Afghanistan’s recent toss record and current momentum suggest it’s a close call, and they cannot be underestimated.
