Axar, Karthik and Chahar play with Afghanistan bowling first against India in dead rubber


Toss Afghanistan choose to bowl India

India was already out of the tournament and faced a new challenge, as Afghanistan asked them to bat first after winning the toss. In Dubai, not a single member has lost a match while hunting since early 2020. Rohit Sharma rested and handed the reins of the team to KL Rahul for this match who said they wanted to keep everyone fresh with an eye on the World Cup.
India has made a total of three changes. Rohit gave way to Dinesh Karthik, while Yuzvendra Chahal and Hardik Pandya gave way to Axar Patel and Deepak Chahar, who has been called up from the reserves after Avesh Khan was ruled out.

Afghanistan, still harboring Wednesday night’s heartache against Pakistan, kept their XI.

India XI: KL Rahul (capt), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Deepak Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh.

Afghanistan XI: Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Ibrahim Zadran, Karim Janat, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi (capt), Azmatullah Omarzai, Rashid Khan, Fareed Ahmad, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fazalhaq Farooqi.
