USA v India - ICC Men's T20 Cricket World Cup West Indies & USA 2024

Team India will square off against Afghanistan in their first Super 8 game of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on Thursday, June 20. Both teams will look to win the match and take one step closer to the semi-finals.

India topped Group A with six points, including three wins. Their final game against Canada was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to inclement weather conditions. Rohit Sharma and company will look to continue their winning momentum against the Afghans.

The Men in Blue might make some changes to their playing XI as hinted by head coach Rahul Dravid. They might bring in an extra spinner at the expense of an additional fast bowler.

Afghanistan, on the other hand, finished second in Group C to qualify for the Super 8. They defeated heavyweights New Zealand but lost to the West Indies in their final group game to settle for the second spot. Rashid Khan and company will look to come out all guns blazing against a star-studded Indian team and create another upset in this T20 World Cup.

Another cracking contest beckons fans at Kensington Oval and fans are expected to turn up in huge numbers. Bright and sunny conditions are expected during the start of the match between India and Afghanistan on Thursday.

According to Accuweather, the temperature will hover between 31 and 32 degrees Celsius. However, the humidity will be on the higher side, meaning the actual feeling will be around 36-37 degrees Celsius.

Clouds might settle in during the second half of the contest, and there are slight chances of rainfall, which is unlikely to cause any delay. Thus, a full 40-over contest is on the cards tonight.

What is the head-to-head record between India and Afghanistan in T20Is?

India have always dominated Afghanistan whenever the two teams have met in the shortest format. The Men in Blue have won seven out of eight meetings, while the other game yielded no result.

Rohit and his men will look to continue their winning record intact against the Afghans and begin the Super 8 phase with a win.
