The 1st T20I between India and Afghanistan will be played on the 11th of January at the IS Bindra stadium in Mohali. The squads are set and the Indians are ready to play one of the new dark horses in international cricket. The Indians might be favourites to win the game, but we cannot count out these warriors from the Afghan nation, who are capable of surprising even the best teams in the world.This is still set to be a cracker of a contest between these two asian nations battling it out in the shortest format in this 3 match T20I series.

The Indian squad still looks promising and the return of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will only make their side look even more dangerous. Rohit Sharma will also lead the the side once again after a really long break from this format which he has conquered in the past as well. Apart from the return of the great duo, the talent of Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson and Rinku Singh with the bat and the experience of Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel will also join the ranks and set the stage on fire.

Afghanistan on the other hand might not be very high in the rankings, but they still have their fair share of T20 players who can change the game. The likes of players like Mohammad Nabi, Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Mujeeb Ur Rahman in the squad should be enough not to underestimate this team. Afghanistan has already proven their worth in the World Cup as well where they beat the likes of England and Pakistan and have certified themselves as one of the most unpredictable teams in the league.

IND vs AFG- Pitch conditions

The pitch at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali is another two paced Indian wicket that has something for both batters and bowlers. The pitch could give enough bounce for the pacers and some grip to the spinners. Due to overcast conditions the pitch either be slightly slower or maybe a bit quicker. There are no expectations from this ground as it can either give some assistance to the bowlers or be a belter for the batters. There are scores of over 200 on this wicket as well as under 150, which will be interesting to see how this pitch stands out.

Rohit Sharma, Yashasavi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Tilak Varma, Sanju Samson, Rinku Singh, Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Kuldeep Yadav, Avesh Khan.
