India vs Afghanistan 3rd T20I : Whenever there is talk of cricket in Bengaluru, the thing that comes to mind the most are runs. Be it T20 or ODI in Bengaluru. A lot of runs are scored. Due to this, while on one hand the batsmen are happy to play here, on the other hand the bowlers feel stressed. Now the last and third match of the ongoing T20 series between India and Afghanistan will be played here. About 6 years ago, Team India had created a record on this very ground, which no team in the world has been able to break till now.
Team India had scored more than 200 runs in the first innings in the year 2017.
In the year 2017, T20 International match was played between India and England at this M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Batting first, Team India scored 202 runs for six wickets. For India, Suresh Raina played an excellent inning of 65 runs on 45 balls and MS Dhoni played an excellent inning of 56 runs on 36 balls. In this match, captain Virat Kohli came to open with KL Rahul. But Kohli could score only 2 runs and Rahul could score 22 runs. After this, when the England team came on the field to chase 203 runs, they were out after scoring 127 runs in just 16.3 overs.
Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah wreaked havoc
In this match, Yuzvendra Chahal took 6 wickets for Team India. Whereas Jasprit Bumrah took three wickets. Although a lot of time has passed since this match. Now neither MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina are there nor bowlers like Chahal and Bumrah are playing in this series. In such a situation, there will be a challenge before Team India. But the way the young Indian team is performing in the presence of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, India seems to have the upper hand.
Big innings will be expected from Rohit Sharma
Anyway, there will be expectations from Rohit Sharma in this match, because till now he has not been able to open his account in the first two matches. A batsman like Rohit cannot be kept calm for long. He has a big innings due. It should be expected that in the last T20 International match before the T20 World Cup 2024, Rohit Sharma will be seen in the same style as is expected from him. It remains to be seen what records will be made in this match.
Indian team had lost at the hands of Australia
The score of 202 runs scored by the Indian team is the highest score made by any team in a T20 International match. After this, if we talk about the second highest score, it came in the year 2019. Australia had scored 194 runs for three wickets. Although this score came in the second innings. Earlier, the Indian team had scored 190 runs in the same match, but Australia chased it and won the match by seven wickets.
