3 Top matchups for India vs Afghanistan T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 clash

India will be competing against Afghanistan in the Super 8 Group 1 clash of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. After staying unbeaten in the group stage of the tournament, the Indian cricket team will be confident about getting past Afghanistan on their way to greater things in the ongoing tournament.

In this article, SportsTiger looks at three top matchups for the India versus Afghanistan clash in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Rishabh Pant vs Rashid Khan

Rishabh Pant has been embroiled in a great battle with Rashid Khan in T20 cricket, scoring 113 runs at an average of 56.50, but he hasn’t been able to dominate the right-arm leg spin bowler, holding a strike-rate of just 113. But the responsibility of keeping up the rate of scoring for India in the T20 World Cup 2024 in the number three batting position will prompt the left-handed batter to take risks against Rashid Khan, which will be quite intriguing to watch as a spectator.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz vs Arshdeep Singh

Rahmanullah Gurbaz has batted four times against Arshdeep Singh in T20 cricket, scoring just 29 runs in 26 balls against him without getting dismissed. But, during their recent battle in a T20I series in January 2024, Singh delivered a maiden against Gurbaz at the PCA IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali, which is why it will be interesting to see how the Afghan batter will try to combat the challenge of the left-arm fast bowler in their upcoming T20 World Cup clash.

Rohit Sharma vs Fazalhaq Farooqi

Rohit Sharma hasn’t had the best of times in the early part of his innings against the left-arm fast bowlers irrespective of the format, and Fazalhaq Farooqi is no different in this regard. In their three battles in T20 cricket, Sharma has scored just four runs against Farooqi, losing his wicket to him once, facing 12 balls in total from the left-armer, who caused him a few problems with his deceptive in-swinging delivery.
