T20 World Cup 2024 match: India vs Afghanistan

India versus Afghanistan: India will play their first Super 8 T20 World Cup 2024 match today at Kensington Oval in Barbados. India vs Afghanistan: In a highly anticipated encounter, India prepares to face Afghanistan in their first Super 8 match of the T20 World Cup 2024, which begins today, June 20, in Bridgetown, Barbados. Despite recent weather issues in the United States, media reports indicate that the match between India and Afghanistan will not be disrupted.

According to Sportingnews.com, the ground at Kensington is noted for its bounce, which could benefit bowlers. Due to the bounce, the first few overs of the game could be difficult for batsmen. The report also stated that the Kensington Oval has staged 27 T20Is, with 17 matches won by the team batting first and eight by the team batting second. However, two concluded without a result. Team India's opening order is currently under threat, and the performance of important players such as Kohli is being scrutinized. Kohli, who opens alongside Captain Rohit Sharma, has yet to make a run in the competition.Kohli scored one run from five balls in India's match against Ireland on June 5. In the following match against Pakistan, he scored five runs off three balls, while against the United States on June 12, Kohli was out for a golden duck. Some cricketers, such as the renowned South African AB de Villiers, believe Kohli is better at batting at number three.

On the other side, it could be beneficial for Afghanistan. Their players, Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran, are currently in the top five in the tournament for runs. Gurbaz ranks third with 167 runs in four matches, while Zadran ranks fifth with 152 runs. Additionally, Afghanistan bowler Fazalhaq Farooqi leads the bowling charts with 12 wickets. Despite this, Google's prediction meter indicates that India has an 80% chance of winning today's match against Afghanistan.
