Live score for India against Afghanistan: Rohit Sharma at toss
Live score for India vs. Afghanistan: We’ve chosen to field first. This decision was made without any particular rationale; the pitch at Mohali is steady and hardly changes. We need to win these three matches badly, especially because we haven’t played a lot of T20 cricket in the World Cup. Of course, there’s the Indian Premier League, but we want to take advantage of this unique opportunity to participate in international contests. Rahul Dravid and I had a conversation regarding our team’s makeup and future plan. Our main goal is to comprehend and carry out our responsibilities as a team successfully. Still, winning is the ultimate objective.”
Indian athletes would need to exercise flexibility given their hectic schedule.
India’s final T20 internationals before the T20 World Cup kicks off on June 1 are these three games.
Given their back-to-back series in all formats following the Cricket World Cup in November and December, as well as the international competitions that preceded it, India’s coach Rahul Dravid says the team had to manage the players’ workload.
“In the past few years, there have been numerous ICC events, many of them back-to-back. Consequently, there hasn’t been much time between events, according to Dravid.
“With the quantity of cricket played, we have had to prioritise formats during my tenure here. The boys can’t play all the time, so we’ve got to figure out what matters most first.
“As we consider the England Test series, there are players missing from this squad,” Dravid continued, specifically mentioning Jasprit Bumrah’s absence.
“There isn’t much time to prepare for this T20 World Cup, so we will have to rely on what we have and the Indian Premier League as well,” the player said.All you need to do is be adaptable and flexible. We will have to accept it this time even if we had a great lead going into the last World Cup and the previous T20 World Cup.
