India and Afghanistan are set to face each other in the first match of the three-match T20 series at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Thursday, January 11. Ahead of the match, famous cricket expert Aakash Chopra shared his opinion in a recent video while previewing the match. Chopra started his discussion by talking about the strong team of Afghanistan and along with this he also gave his statement about Rashid Khan.

Actually, due to injury, Rashid Khan will not be able to be a part of the team for this series. Despite this, Chopra emphasized the team’s strengths, especially in the batting department. Chopra said in his YouTube video, “Afghanistan has come with a very big team. From Rahmanullah Gurbaz to Gulbadin Naib, they have a lot of heating ability. The pressure will be on the batting of this team because they bowl well in any case.”

Highlighting the important role of Rahmanullah Gurbaz in Afghanistan’s batting lineup, the former India opener said, “In batting, if Rahmanullah Gurbaz’s bat speaks, Rahmanullah will become Subhanallah, Mashallah. He will need the support of the middle-order batsmen. If the Afghan batsmen contribute runs, it is a contest worth watching.”

Expressing hope for the strong batting of Najibullah Zadran, Chopra predicted a high-scoring match. They said, “My eyes will be on Najibullah Zadran again because he hits sixes hard. He has good strength in batting. Whoever wins the toss will opt to bowl first as the target will be easier to chase. It could be a 180 to 200 run match.”

However, Chopra cautioned against overly aggressive strategies for the team batting first and advised aiming for a 200+ score from the start. He argued that such an approach could backfire, resulting in a lower total score in the end.
