The India vs Afghanistan series has started with the hosts dominating the visitors convincingly and beating them by 6 wickets. The star of the match was Shivam Dube, who scored a magnificent half-century to get the Men in blue over the line with just 15 balls to spare. The Indians were always one step ahead of the Afghans in every scenario of the game and will look to continue their dominance in the next two games as well. On the other hand Afghanistan even after a disappointing performance in the first T20I will look to make a comeback and prove to the Indians why they are not a team to take lightly. The Holkar Stadium in Indore will be hosting another much-awaited contest between the two sides with Indians looking to take the series and the Afghans trying to stay alive.

The Men in Blue will be happy with their performance in the 1st T20I, where they at every point in time had the game in their grasp. The performer for India was none other than Shivam Dube. The 30 yr old all-rounder bowled a decent short spell with the ball, where he only gave away 9 runs from his two overs and got the big wicket of Afghan skipper Ibrahim Zadran in the game and scored an incredible 60 runs from just 40 balls that included 5 fours and 2 sixes at a strike rate of 150. This was a vital inning as well considering a bit of a slow start from the Men in blue at the top.

Afghanistan will not be pleased as they had some decent opportunities in the game which they didn't make full use of. The only players who were looking good on the day were Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb Ur Rahman. Nabi was responsible for getting the Afghans to a respectable total with his knock of 42 from 27 deliveries that included 2 fours and 3 sixes at a strike rate of over 150. Mujeeb was also the only bowler in the second innings who was looking threatening and finished with great figures of 2-21 in 4 overs. These were perhaps the only positive moments for the visitors in the first game which they should keep in mind going into the 2nd match in Indore.

IND vs AFG- Pitch conditions

The Holkar Stadium is also known to be another batters' paradise where big totals are scored and chased down. The short dimensions and flat nature of the pitch are enough for the batters to put pressure on the bowlers. Just like the first game this also looks set to be another high-scoring thriller, where both the teams will look to make the most of with their own explosive T20 batters. This should be another surface where the team should choose to bowl first and restrict the team to a total under 170 so that the batters can chase it down easily since the pitch does not look like it will change much going forward.
