  • IND vs AFG Dream11 Team India vs Afghanistan

    IND vs AFG Dream11 Team: Without much of doubt, India’s Asia Cup 2022 campaign has been an utter disappointment especially during the important Super 4 stage of the T20 competition. The Men in Blue first conceded a poor 5-wicket defeat against Pakistan and then succumbed to a convincing 6-wicket defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka to get knocked out of the tournament. India will be playing against Afghanistan at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on 8 September, 2022 (Thursday).

    Indian captain Rohit Sharma finally found his usual rhythm back during the last match against Sri Lanka in the very same conditions. After losing two key wickets early, the senior Indian opener composed a wonderful innings of 72 runs off 41 deliveries that included 5 fours and 4 sixes. This was Rohit’s 28th T20I half-century in the shorter format of the game that also includes as many as 4 centuries. He scored an impressive knock of 74 runs during the last T20I encounter against Afghanistan in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

In the most recent match against Pakistan, he took the crucial wickets of Mohammad Rizwan and Shadab Khan. Rashid has scalped a total of 118 wickets from 70 T20I matches at a brilliant economy of 6.22. Without any doubt, he has the ability to deliver amazing match-winning performances especially in pressure situations.

    70 118 6.22 13.93 2/25, 1/39, 3/22, 0/12, 3/25

     

    3. Virat Kohli

    The Indian team management will be feeling a lot better after watching Virat Kohli return back to form after a long time now despite him getting dismissed for a duck in the last match against Sri Lanka. However, the modern day master batsman contributed impressive innings of 60 runs off 44 deliveries that included 4 fours and 1 six in the previous Super 4 clash against Pakistan. He also scored an impressive fifty in the game against Hong Kong. Kohli has smashed more than 3400 T20I runs at a strike-rate of 136.89 that includes as many as 32 half-centuries.

    4. Rahmanullah Gurbaz

    For Afghanistan, young opening batsman Rahmanullah Gurbaz has looked in an excellent touch so far in the ongoing edition of the T20 tournament. During the Super 4 clash against Sri Lanka, Gurbaz smacked a blistering innings of 84 runs off just 45 balls that consisted of 6 sixes and 4 fours. He also played a quite crucial cameo of 40 runs off only 18 deliveries in the Asia Cup 2022 opener. The right-handed explosive batsman has went on to register 828 T20I runs at a strike-rate of close to 140 that includes a total of 5 half-centuries.

    5. Suryakumar Yadav

    For India, Suryakumar Yadav has delivered a lot of crucial performances with the bat during the recent few months in the shorter format of the game. He notched up a fabulous century during the final T20I match against England which unfortunately ended up in a losing cause. Suryakumar contributed with a blazing unbeaten innings of 68 runs off only 26 balls that included a total of 6 sixes and as many fours in the match against Hong Kong earlier in the ongoing T20 tournament. The right-hander can be a very dangerous player in the T20I format due to his amazing ability of smacking the bowlers all around the park.

    27 805 172.75 6/1 34, 13, 68*, 18, 24
