In the ongoing three-match T20I series between India and Afghanistan in Indore, the Indian team has made a significant change for the second encounter. Shubman Gill, who scored 23 runs in the first T20I, has been dropped, making way for Yashasvi Jaiswal’s comeback. The first match in Mohali saw India clinching victory by six wickets, with Shivam Dube playing a pivotal role, crafting an unbeaten knock of 60 runs.

Gill’s dismissal in the opening match was marked by a mix-up with captain Rohit Sharma, resulting in Sharma’s unfortunate run-out for a duck. Despite hitting five fours, Gill’s miscommunication with Sharma led to a fiery moment on the pitch, with the Indian captain expressing displeasure at the turn of events.

The second T20I not only witnesses the exclusion of Gill but also marks the return of Virat Kohli to the shortest format after 14 months. Kohli’s last appearance in T20Is for India was during the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final against England.

With the T20 World Cup 2024 looming, the second IND vs AFG T20I is crucial for India to secure a series win and finalize their squad for the upcoming tournament. This match serves as the penultimate opportunity for the Indian team to decide their final 15, with some players likely to be tested further in the upcoming Indian Premier League.
