Team blue is all set to face newcomer Afghanistan team on Tuesday in the Super Four Clash final match of Asia Cup 2018 with some changes in the team to continue with their winning legacy in the ongoing tournament. Though Afghanistan is performing quality cricket in the last matches against Pakistan, Sri Lanka or Bangladesh, beating Indian team will definitely be an extraordinary task to do.
Indian team have already qualified for the finals of the tournament but surely, they want a complete sweep over in the history of Asia Cup 2018 by implementing some changes in the today’s match.
The superstar Shikhar Dhawan who proved his batting skills against the opponents in the last matches in Asia Cup or against England, he will take rest in the match against Afghanistan and would prove as an asset in the finals for the Indian team.
Team blue will experiment with their middle order as Manish Pandey will replace Dinesh Kartik after sitting in the bench all through the tournament and newcomer Khaleel Ahmed will get a chance to replace fast bowlers Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah.
In the middle pacer category, Siddharth Kaul and Deepak Chahar may also come forward. In the first match of the Super 4 match, Indian team had defeated Bangladesh and then snatching a comfortable win against Pakistan by 9 wickets, Team blue is tagged as the unbeaten team in the present tournament.
However, Afghanistan team will put their best with the superhit trio of Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Mohammed Nabi and Rashid khan batting to make a big score against Indian team. They have been established as the strong opponents for the team like Bangladesh and Pakistan and had defeated team Sri Lanka in the group stage match.
With nothing to lose, Afghans will try to dominate Indian team even knowing the current form of team blue.
