Previous India spinner Harbhajan Singh expressed that India can’t stand to mess with Afghanistan given the sort of structure they have been in during the continuous T20 World Cup. Afghanistan, who qualified for the Super12 by the righteousness of being one of the main 10 groups in the ICC rankings, have crushed Scotland and Namibia while losing to Pakistan up until now.
India, then again, have almost taken themselves out in the wake of losing against Pakistan and New Zealand in progression and should depend on specific different outcomes turning out well for them to make it into the semi-finals. They play Afghanistan on November 3 followed by Scotland and Namibia on November 5 and 8, separately.
“You can’t mess with Afghanistan, they are an awesome and mature group. They have nice hitters and their twist couple of Mujeeb Ur Rahman-Rashid Khan is a deadly mix. This arrangement is to such an extent that, till the end, you can’t anticipate which group will win or lose. The group that is ahead after the initial six overs is probably going to enjoy the benefit. The odds of causing a rebound to turn out to be exceptionally thin after that,” Harbhajan told Sportskeeda.
India have met Afghanistan twice in the T20 World Cup, winning on the two events. Nonetheless, Harbhajan figured that records will have no effect, as the group that plays better on the day will win.
“As a cricketer, I don’t have confidence in past records. I find details pointless. What has occurred previously, we can’t accept that it will happen once more. In case that was the situation, we beat Pakistan multiple times, and we ought to have won the thirteenth time too. We can’t change the past. What is important is the means by which we play in the present. We had beaten them before yet that Afghanistan group was really taking shape, presently they are prepared. That is a major contrast. This Afghanistan group is fit for overcoming enormous sides.”
As things stand, India won’t qualify simply by winning their excess experiences. They need to dominate each of the three matches by a major edge to work on their net run rate and supplicate that New Zealand loses to Afghanistan. All things considered, India will be tied on 6 focuses with net run rate becoming possibly the most important factor for additional capability.
