India will take on Afghanistan today as part of the T20 World Cup 2021 Super 12. Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has said that India can play three spinners in the match in Abu Dhabi. Gavaskar said India should play an extra spinner in the must-win match against Afghanistan. Varun Chakraborty was of the opinion that it would be better to replace R Ashwin. He claimed that Afghanistan could play a mystery spin. “So far in the T20 World Cup 2021, India have played Varun Chakraborty and Ravindra Jadeja as their two spinners. However they were unable to make any impact. The bowlers have been under pressure so far. India lost by 10 wickets to Pakistan and 8 wickets to New Zealand. India want to win the remaining 3 matches by a huge margin, ”Gavaskar said.
“Maybe Shardul Thakur or Mohammad Shami will not play in this match. With 2 seamers and 3 spinners one of them has to miss out. If Hardik can bowl 2 overs at medium pace, then the team will have three pacers, ”Gavaskar said. “A top-class spinner like R Ashwin says it makes no difference whether he bowls to a right-hander or a left-hander. “The pitches here are slow. So far, the batsmen have struggled to spin. ” Gavaskar said. He said that Afghanistan was not underestimated.
He recalled that Afghan Namibia, led by the Prophet Muhammad, had defeated Scotland. “In recent times, Indian batsmen have shown some weakness in playing spin, especially in hand deliveries. Afghanistan should be careful in the match, ”said Sunil Gavaskar.
In Group-2, Pakistan has won four matches in a row and is top. Afghanistan is in second place while New Zealand is in third place. Namibia and India are in fourth and fifth place respectively. India lost by eight wickets to the Kiwis on Sunday. This complicated the semis chances. If anything miraculous happens there is no chance of going to the wrong India semis.
