People who are involved in cricket betting are always waiting for the new matches to begin. Even if they are not able to watch complete tournaments, they try to watch highlights and then place bets. So, there is a lot of excitement as Afghanistan is set to make its test cricket debut against the Indian giants on 14th June in Bengaluru, India. Five days of this test match will surely be amazing to watch.
Indian Test squad will be missing some of the star faces like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Bhuvneshvar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. Ajinkya Rahane will lead the team. The batting line-up has the captain, Cheteshwar Pujara, Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, KL Rahul and Karun Nair. There are all-rounders like Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Hardik Pandya. Expert bowlers like Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma will be ready to dominate the opposing side. One can even see Shardul Thakur making his test debut. Wriddhiman Saha has been ruled out of the match due to thumb fracture so KL Rahul would be seen behind the stumps.
Afghanistan cricketers are not very popular in India except the star players who are seen in IPL. Indian fans will look forward to thrilling performances by bowlers like Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman. A T20 squad of Afghanistan is constantly rising in ICC ranking and is showing excellent cricket skills in the world. The batting line-up is also good, and it will be an interesting test match, and the minnows will give their best to prove their winning poweress.
Team India should expect a tough fight from Afghanistan in this match. Since the star players are missing from Indian squad, all the players must give their best to win the match. The stability and experience of senior players will help in giving India an upper hand. However, a lot will depend on the form of team Afghanistan and the confidence gained from the T20 series which will take place before this test match.
