India vs Afghanistan: Players To Watch Out For
India is one of the best cricketing nations, so the expectations always remain high when they play in any tournament. But this year, it looks like the expectations were laid heavily on the team, and they could not deal with so much pressure. India has played in two matches and has lost both of them. The performance is not up to the mark, and the whole squad has hit rock bottom. Against Pakistan, they failed to pick up any wicket, and against New Zealand, they did not even cross the 120 run mark. With great players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, etc., it is highly expected and undeserved performance from them.
Afghanistan, on the other side, has been a magical team in the tournament. With so many problems in their country, they came to the tournament without any sponsor. In every match their performance is breathtaking. Like the saying, ‘God only helps them, those who help themselves, they have overcome a lot. They have three matches and won two of them. With four points they are in the second position of group 2. They have a massive net run rate of +3.097. The Afghanistan squad has talented players like Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Asghar Afghan, etc., who are all leading the team from the frontlines.

India is in a bad situation. They need to win this match if they want to keep their hopes of winning the tournament alive. It is a difficult task, but they somehow have to do it.
