Former India cricketer Robin Uthappa said Afghanistan’s bowling and India’s batting would change the course of the match of the upcoming Super 8 match between them at the 2024 T20 World Cup as well. He added that the only way Afghanistan can win the game is by winning the battle with the ball. Uthappa added that Afghanistan have a formidable bowling attack but he backed the Indian batters to emerge
victoriously in the match.

Speaking on Ravichandran Ashwin’s YouTube channel, he said: “I think this game is going to be Afghanistan’s bowling versus India’s batting. I think that’s where the competition is. I feel their bowlers are of pretty high calibre. You can take Naveen-ul-Haq, Fazalhaq Farooqi. I like Omarzai also with the ball. Karim Janat is pretty decent with the ball. Noor Ahmed is very good So, I feel like they will have a lot of questions that they will ask the Indian batters. But will Indian batters have the answers? I certainly think so. But if they have a chance, that’s where they have a chance.”

However, India and Afghanistan will play against each other at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados, on Thursday, June 20. Robin Uthappa also added that many Indian batters failed to find form in the group stage of the 2024 T20 World Cup as well.

“The Indian batters necessarily haven’t come to the party. They haven’t looked as convincing as we know them to be. Confidence of this form is not there currently. Calibre is definitely there. Potential is 100% there. Now, turning that into performance in a big tournament like this, the start has been that sort where the flow is not there.
