Afghanistan captain Mohammad Nabi won the toss and decided to bowl first against India in the Super 12 stage in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium In Abu Dhabi. During the toss, Virat Kohli revealed that Varun Chakravarthy was suffering a niggle and therefore is replaced by Ravichandran Ashwin. Suryakumar Yadav was also declared fit and replaces Ishan Kishan. Kohli said, “Firstly there’s no denying the fact that the situation is a tricky one. Having said that there’s still a chance. We know we haven’t played up to potential whatever the reasons might be – need to brush that aside. Would have bowled first. But it’s not a bad thing against a side like Afghanistan who look to put up runs on the board. Couple of changes – Surya is back as he’s fit. Ashwin replaces Varun who has a bit of a niggle.” (LIVE SCORECARD)

    Sehwag Speaks !

    Sehwag brought up some similarities between the 2007 50-over WC and the ongoing T20 WC

    He said on Cricbuzz:

    “The opening pair of Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly were performing so well [In 2007 50-over WC], before that from 2003-06 Sehwag and Sachin’s opening partnership was also working well, why were they broken? Why was it said that if Sachin Tendulkar plays in the middle order then he can control the middle order. You already had three players to control; Yuvraj Singh, Rahul Dravid and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. So why did you need a fourth player to control the middle order.”
