The Men in Blue put on a commanding display in the first match, with Shivam Dube’s blistering knock of 72 off 43 balls powering them to victory. Virat Kohli’s return to the T20 fold also provided a much-needed boost, adding stability to the top order.

The bowling unit, led by the experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar and the ever-dangerous Jasprit Bumrah, was clinical, restricting Afghanistan to a manageable total.

However, India won’t be complacent. They know Afghanistan are a capable team, full of talented youngsters who can upset the best on their day. The likes of Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, and Rashid Khan (if available) remain dangerous threats, and India will need to be at their best to secure the series win.

The Afghans will be disappointed with their performance in the first match. Despite a spirited fightback with the bat, they ultimately fell short. However, they have the talent and resilience to bounce back.

They will need to address their shortcomings, particularly in the middle overs where they faltered in Mohali. The spin duo of Mujeeb ur Rahman and Mohammad Nabi will need to be more effective, and the batsmen will have to play smart against a potent Indian bowling attack.
