  • Afghanistan’s Rahmanullah Gurbaz has scored 76 & 80 in his last 4 innings.

India have won four of their last five T20I matches against Afghanistan.

Afghanistan Form

After winning their first three Group C matches, Afghanistan lost to the West Indies by 104 runs.

The West Indies piled up 218/5 off their 20 overs, Gulbadin Naib (2/14) returning the best figures with the ball.

Afghanistan were rolled out for 114 off 16.2 overs, ​​Ibrahim Zadran top-scoring with 38 off 28 balls.

Afghanistan Team News

Afghanistan are in good form but they will be hoping their batting and bowling will bounce back from the heavy loss to the West Indies.

India Form

India’s last Group A match was abandoned without a ball bowled. Their previous match saw them card a seven-wicket win with 10 balls in hand over the USA. 

The USA were restricted to 110/8 off their 20 overs, Arshdeep Singh (4/9) destroying their top order with an incredible spell of bowling. 

India recovered from 39/3 to coast to victory with seven wickets and 10 balls to spare. Suryakumar Yadav top-scored with 50*, backed by Shivam Dube’s 31 off 35 balls.

India Team News

India are in good form and are unlikely to make any changes to their team. They will be hoping Virat Kohli can find form for the latter stages of the competition.


I am backing India to win. I am also backing Rishabh Pant to top score for India.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz is a good bet to top score for Afghanistan.
