IND vs AFG Live Score

IND Vs AFG T20, Asia Cup 2022 Highlights Latest Updates: Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave a fiery start to India and picked 4 wickets in his first three overs to rattle Afghanistan. At 19/4, things look gloomy for Afghanistan. What a day it has been for India. Virat Kohli scoring a century and Bhuvneshwar Kumar displaying his sensational spell with the ball, Indian fans couldn’t have asked for more.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has given India a top start as he has removed Hazratullah Zazai and Rahmanullah Gurbaz in the first over. This comes after Virat Kohli scored his maiden T20I hundred and 71st century overall that helped India post 212.

Virat Kohli ended his century drought and stroked his maiden T20I century to put India in a co0mmanding position against Afghanistan. This is Kohli’s first international century after 2019. His last century came against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens in 2019.

Virat Kohli has played a sublime knock so far. He is batting on 77 off 46 balls and a century is just a touching distance away. With three overs to go, Virat Kohli look set to break this century drought.

Virat Kohli and KL Rahul reached their respective half-centuries and  put India in a commanding position before Rahul got out to Fareed Malik for 62 off 41 balls after adding 119 runs with Kohli. Suryakumar Yadav came, hit a six and was clean bowled on the next delivery. Still, India are in a great position.

Virat Kohli and KL Rahul have looked in great form ever since they have come out to bat. India have scored 52 runs in the powerplay and the platform is set for India to post a big score. Afghanistan bowlers Fazalhaq Farooqi and Mujeeb ur Rahman started well, but both Rahul and Kohli put them under pressure and forced them to bowl bad deliveries.

Virat Kohli and KL Rahul have come out with positive intent. However, Afghanistan opening bowlers Fazalhaq Farooqi and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have bowled tight lines and have not allowed them to break free.

Mohammad Nabi has won the toss and opted to bowl. Rohit Sharma is not playing today’s game and KL Rahul is captaining India. At the toss, he said that India wanted to bat first so both teams have got what they wanted. India have made three changes to the team. Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya and Yuzvendra Chahal are not playing and they have been replaced by Axar Patel, Deepak Hooda and Deepak Chahar.

Rohit Sharma’s India has had a disappointing Asia Cup 2022. The defending champions were the favorites to win the tournament but two back-to-back losses against Pakistan and Sri Lanka meant that the team failed to reach the final. India will now face Afghanistan in their final game of the Asia Cup 2022.

Indian batting has done well in the tournament as the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, and Hardik Pandya doing well. However, they have not been consistent. Yet, the team has posted decent scores on the board. The bowling though has let them down.

In the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami and Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh and Hardik Pandya have failed to make an impact. Yuzvendra Chahal bowled well against Pakistan but overall he has looked off-colour.

Afghanistan have played top notch cricket in the tournament. They defeated Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to reach the Super 4 but lost to Sri Lanka and Pakistan to bow out of the tournament. However, Afghanistan were close to winning both the game. Against Pakistan, they played well but Naseem Shah hit two sixes in the final over to seal the game for Pakistan by 1 wicket. Afghanistan have dangerous players like Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Hazratullah Zazai, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman among others so they will pose a stiff challenge to India.

India Squad: Rohit Sharma (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi

Afghanistan Squad: Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Mohammad Nabi (c), Hazratullah Zazai, Ibrahim Zadran, Najibullah Zadran, Karim Janat, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fareed Ahmad Malik, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Samiullah Shinwari, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Afsar Zazai, Usman Ghani, Naveen-ul-Haq, Noor Ahmad
