#3 Absence of Virat Kohli


E
Regular skipper Virat will not be playing the match

One might feel that Virat Kohli may not be required for this series. However, one shouldn’t forget that India hasn’t played as a team for quite some time now and Virat’s charged up leadership might just be the dose India may need when they take the field against the Afghans.

Not only as a leader, Virat is a massive name in the Indian batting order and though Afghanistan is playing its debut test, it is quite capable of removing the top order rather early and putting the middle order under some kind of pressure. It is in moments like those that India shouldn’t start thinking about Virat, rather bat to the best of their ability and try and win the game for the country.
