IND vs AFG T20I series will begin on 11th January in Mohali.

The three-match T20I series between India and Afghanistan is all set to kick-off on January 11. Rohit Sharma will be back leading India’s T20I side after a gap of 14 months. Virat Kohli will also be in India’s playing XI for the upcoming three-match T20I series against Afghanistan. It is expected to be a high-scoring series as all three matches will be played on batting tracks.

Both teams have some excellent batting superstars on their side who can turn the game single-handedly. And it won’t be wrong to say that it will be a clash between two batting heavyweights. In this article, we will talk about five batters that you should have when you are making a Dream11 team for the upcoming T20I series.

IND vs AFG: Here are the 5 Batsmen you must have in your Dream11 team

5. Ibrahim Zadran :

Afghanistan captain Ibrahim Zadran has been in a red-hot form. He was the top-scorer for his team during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 and enjoyed batting on Indian pitches. Being a captain, he will have more responsibility on his shoulders of scoring runs. Hence, if you pick him as a batter, he is expected to get more points for you in your Dream11 team.

4. Yashasvi Jaiswal :

Yashasvi Jaiswal is expected to open the innings for India because he is in a good form in the shortest format of the game at the moment. India will not mind trying the right-hand and left-hand batting combination at the top. Jaiswal plays with an aggressive approach, which makes him a dangerous batter. One thing is sure, if he gets going, he will score runs, which will help to collect more points on the fantasy platform.

3. Rahmanullah Gurbaz :

For Afghanistan to win, a lot will depend on how Rahmanullah Gurbaz will perform against India in the upcoming series. He recently smashed his maiden T20I ton against UAE, and he has been a run machine for his team in white-ball cricket. He is also the wicket-keeper of his team, which will help to collect a few more points for catches or stumpings. So he is a perfect player to have on the Dream11 team for IND vs AFG T20I series.

2. Rohit Sharma :

You can’t make a Dream11 team by leaving Rohit Sharma out. He will be leading the Indian team, and we all know what he did in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 as a captain at the top of the order. He is expected to do something similar in the upcoming IND vs AFG T20I series as well. Hence, you can pick him as a captain or vice-captain of your Dream11 team.

1. Virat Kohli :

You can’t leave a guy who has an average of over 52 and a strike rate of around 137 in T20 internationals. Virat Kohli, who is back in India’s playing XI in T20Is after 14 months has been in a good form recently. He smashed a hundred against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup 2022. You can pick Virat as the captain of your Dream11 team.
