10 best tweets on India’s win against Afghanistan in T20 World Cup 2021

India back into contention for T20 World Cup 2021 semi-finals, although with a slight chance

India finally managed to get a result in their favor in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021, and it was such an impressive result that it has now brought India back into the tournament, although with a very slight chance and the Indian fans, as always, are optimistic again about India’s chances in the tournament.

For India to advance to the semi-final round from here, a lot of things need to fall in place, including the results of a couple of other matches, but the result against Afghanistan is undoubtedly a great start to get things going again.

India didn’t have the coin fall in their favor again in the game against Afghanistan, and Afghanistan surprisingly decided to bowl. It’s not that surprising a decision for other teams in the tournament, but Afghanistan generally likes to bat first, even with the dew factor. However, to exploit the lack of form of the Indian top order, they went with a different game-plan and it backfired.

India’s opening pair batted more freely against Afghanistan than they batted in the first two games of the T20 World Cup, 2021

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, who otherwise had been very circumspect in their approach so far in this T20 World Cup 2021, threw caution to the win this time around and played their shots straight away. The fact that the pitch was a good one for batting and Afghanistan didn’t have the services of Mujeeb ur Rahman helped as well.

Later, India promoted Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya up the order and both those power hitters capitalized on the platform set by Rohit and Rahul and pushed India to a score that was out of Afghanistan’s reach, even with the fact that the pitch was a belter and the dew factor was going to be in play.
Indian fans, more than anything, were a bit relieved with the team’s performance after being shell shocked with the way the men in blue played against Pakistan and New Zealand. Here are the 10 best tweets on India’s win against Afghanistan in T20 World Cup 2021 –

I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
