The iconic Indo-Afghan Test is just around the corner and fans can’t wait to see Afghanistan in white jerseys in Bengaluru. This would be like a friendly game for both the sides because of the good cricketing relations between BCCI and ACB.
But a cricket game is a cricket game so let’s take a deep look at the 5 Afghanistan players who can pose a threat to India in the upcoming Test match:
Afghanistan players to watch out for:
The swashbuckling opener has everything to his name when it comes to powerful strokes. He can hammer any kind of delivery and can give a quick start to his side just like Virender Sehwag used to do for India. His battle against India’s quick bowlers would a thing to watch out for.
Now, this young lad can turn the Test match on his individual ability. He can spin the ball either way and can create tussles in the minds of Indian batting giants. His recent success in the cricket is an indication of his superb form. Khan has the ability finish off the game within 3 days if the curator makes a spinning wicket.
Nabi is none other than a superior all-rounder of the squad. He can bat, bowl and take important decisions with the captain to take his team in a good position. He alongside Rashid Khan can trouble the Indian batting line-up at any time of the Test match.
The skipper of the squad Asghar Stanikzai is confident of his team’s great performance against India. His recent success against Bangladesh is a proof that he can be dangerous with his decisions in the upcoming Test match against India. He also stated that his 3 spinners are better than Jadeja, Ashwin and Kuldeep. Well! We have to look for this now!
Mujeeb Ur Rahman
One of the best bowlers of the side, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, would be looking to make the best use of this series. He performed really well in the recently concluded IPL and now his focus must be on the important wickets of the Indian batting stars including Ajinkya Rahane, Murali Vijay and Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara.
