India, which was favourite to win the T20 World Cup this time, is on the verge of getting eliminated after losing the first two matches against Pakistan and New Zealand. The Men in Blue is now going to play its third match against Afghanistan on Wednesday, 3 November.
Virat Kohli's team still has a narrow chance to enter the next round if it defeats Afghanistan by a big margin and Afghanistan beats New Zealand in its next match.
Afghanistan has been in a good form and is in second place in the points table by winning two matches. Hence, it would not be an easy task for India to convincingly beat the Afghan side.
In the first two matches at Dubai International Stadium, Indian batsmen and bowlers failed to live up to expectations. The latest match is played in Abu Dhabi and the Men in Blue hope that luck favours them this time.
India's probable 11: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli (capt), KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Varun Chakravarthy, and Jasprit Bumrah.
Afghanistan's probable 11: Hazratullah Zazai, Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Hashmatullah Shahidi/Usman Ghani, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Gulbadin Naib, Rashid Khan, Karim Janat/Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Naveen-ul-Haq and Hamid Hassan.
