IND vs AFG Dream11 Fantasy Tips

India is set to face Afghanistan in the final T20I of the gripping three-match series at the iconic M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. Scheduled for Wednesday, January 17, the match promises to be a thrilling showdown starting at 7:00 PM IST.

In the recently concluded second T20I, which took place in Indore, India showcased their dominance, securing a commanding six-wicket victory over Afghanistan. This win not only marked India's 2-0 lead in the series but also carried on their unbeaten streak in the bilateral T20I series at home to an impressive 15 matches. The last time India had to face defeat in this format at home was back in 2019 against Australia.

Afghanistan, batting first in the previous encounter, witnessed a robust start with Gulbadin Naib's explosive innings, scoring 57 off 35 balls. Despite Naib's strong contribution, India's bowlers, spearheaded by Arshdeep Singh, Axar Patel, and Ravi Bishnoi, displayed commendable performances, restricting Afghanistan to a competitive total of 172 on a good baing pitch.

Axar Patel's improved bowling since returning from injury played a pivotal role in slowing down Afghanistan's scoring momentum. During India's chase, the early dismissal of Rohit Sharma for a duck and Virat Kohli's attacking innings set the stage for Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shivam Dube to shine.

Jaiswal reached his fifty in a blistering 27 balls, while Dube achieved his half-century in just 22 deliveries. Their explosive batting display ensured India successfully chased down the target in a mere 15.4 overs. India will enter the match to carry on their dominance on the Afghanistan team and clean sweep the series in Bengaluru.
