Team India after a dismal; showing in the Super 4 stage of the competition are now officially out of the competition and they have plenty to think of. They will now look forward to the next big assignment the T20 World Cup.
They now take on Afghanistan in their final game of the Asia Cup as they look to finish on a high. They have not bowled well in this tournament and it’s a cause of concern. They will look to het that right.
On the other hand, Afghanistan too will be disappointed after their showing in the Super 4 stage after an ideal Group stage performance. This is a learning curve and they shall come up stronger next time.
Afghan side bowling is quite good and they need to synchronise it with the batting. Then they will be good to go.
As for the wicket, bowlers will be aided and batters need to give their best.
