India take on Afghanistan in Abu Dhabi

The Virat Kohli-led Indian team will take on Mohammad Nabi's Afghanistan at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi tonight. It is a must-win clash for the Indians in Group 2 of the Super 12 stage, having lost both their games heading into this contest.

Having lost to Pakistan by 10 wickets, India were then humbled by New Zealand by 8 wickets in Dubai. A victory alone may not suffice though - India will have to look at winning by a convincing margin to give their net run-rate a much-needed boost.

With two wins out of three games thus far, Afghanistan are riding high on confidence in their ICC Men's T20 World Cup campaign.
