Before T20 World Cup Last chance saloon for India to test combination

The India Cricket Team will be aiming for a whitewash against Team Afghanistan. India has already won the series after winning the previous games. A 3-0 win will be perfect for Team India, who will play their final T20I match before the T20 World Cup. With the series in the bag, Rohit Sharma and Co. will not go easy on the visitors for the IND vs. AFG 3rd T20I.

India put up a strong display both in Mohali and Indore to win both games in convincing fashion by six wickets. Rohit Sharma got dismissed for ducks on both occasions, but Shivam Dube was extremely impressive with consecutive fifties. Virat Kohli, too, showcased his mark on his T20I return with a quick knock of 29 runs.

India will like to keep their set team unchanged. Shubman Gill and Tilak Varma missed out on a chance to play; they are unlikely to feature yet again. In terms of the bowling, the spin unit, especially Axar Patel and Ravi Bishnoi, has scalped wickets at crucial intervals of the game.

India will hope to finish their T20I series strongly for a couple of reasons. This will be India’s last T20I match before the mega tournament. So naturally, the players will be keen to perform before the IPL. Furthermore, with the return of Kohli and Rohit to the team, the youngsters will be keen to perform and prove their worth to contest for a place in the T20 World Cup squad.
