India vs Afghanistan Highlights today. 3rd T20I (N), Afghanistan tour of India 2024 Wednesday 17-1-2024. M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.

Pitch and weather

Although the M Chinnaswamy Stadium is well known for its run-fests, the location occasionally lives up to its reputation. The spinners played a major role in the most recent Twenty20 International match played here in December. Bishnoi and Axar combined to take 3 for 43 in their eight overs. Helping India successfully defend 160 against Australia.

Following the five Bengaluru games in the ODI World Cup, that match was played quite soon after. It is reasonable to anticipate more normal Chinnaswamy conditions for this game. Given the groundstaff have had ample time since then to build a fresh surface. On the eve of the game, the field had a noticeable hint of green. Although most of the grass would have been cut before play began. A bright, comfortable evening with temperatures in the mid-20s Celsius is predicted by the forecast.

Toss: Rohit chose to bat.

India team: Rohit (capt), Jaiswal, Kohli, Samson (wk), Dube, Rinku, Washington, Kuldeep, Avesh, Bishnoi, Mukesh.
