 - Sakshi Post

The Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi will host the T20 World Cup 2021 Match between India and Afghanistan today. Team India is hoping to make a strong comeback after back-to-back losses against Pakistan and New Zealand. Do, can India meet expectations and turn tables in the T20 World Cup match against Afghanistan today? Let's find out...

If one were to go by past matches held at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, one can't expect miracles from the team to score big. The highest T20 score on this pitch has been 139 runs in the first innings and the second innings has been 127 runs.

In their previous match against Namibia, Afghanistan had scored 160 runs. The wickets here are said to be friendly for spinners. The only way for batsmen to bring up the score is by hitting the power play overs as the pitch tends to get slower eventually.
