Ahead of the IND vs AFG Super 8 clash, Afghanistan head coach Jonathan Trott said, “Day games actually suit us better. So, quite excited to play India in a day game. Obviously, they are one of the favourites and obviously that has added pressure for India.”

IND vs AFG head-to-head: In eight T20Is, Team India has a solid lead with seven wins against Afghanistan and one game between teams ended in a tie. It will be interesting to see if Rashid Khan as Co. registers their first T20I victory, today against India.
