India vs Afghanistan, 1st T20I – Pitch Report.

The square boundaries measure 65 meters and 68 meters, while the straight boundary extends to 76 meters. The pitch has a tinge of green grass, offering some assistance to the quicker bowlers early on. However, it is expected to become batting-friendly once the ball ages.

The spinners, especially Afghanistan’s, are anticipated to play a crucial role. The decision-making time for batters facing the quick Afghanistan spinners is expected to be challenging. The pitch report rules out significant dew, creating an environment where both bowling and batting units will have their challenges and opportunities.

Ibrahim Zadran – We wanted to bowl first as well, but it’s not a big problem, we’ll try and execute our plans. This is massive opportunity to get experience ahead of the T20 World Cup. We’ll try and play some positive cricket. Noor Ahamad, Sharafuddin, Saleem Saifi aren’t playing, forgot the rest of the guys.

Rohit Sharma – We will bowl first. No particular reason, the pitch is good and it doesn’t change a lot here. A lot to gain from the 3 games, we haven’t had too much T20 cricket leadingto the World Cup, there’s IPL, but this is an international game andwe’ll try to achieve a few things. I had a chat with rahul bhai regarding the combination going forward and what we need to do as a group. That’s what we’ll try to do, but winning is the most important thing. Sanju Samson, Avesh, Yashashvi (who didn’t pull off well) and Kuldeep miss out.
