India will face Afghanistan in its first Super-8 encounter of the T20 World Cup 2024 today. Earlier, the team's captain, Rahul Dravid, declared that due to the West Indies' slow surfaces, a big change will be made to the playing 11. The Indian team's management tested their quick bowlers on Nassau County Stadium's irregular bounce drop-in pitches in New York. At the same time, significant changes are bound to occur in the team due to the circumstances. Kuldeep Yadav or Yuzvendra Chahal, both from China, could be included in the T20 World Cup Super-8 squad.

Indian team head coach Rahul Dravid said that it is difficult to keep anyone out. The conditions were a little different in New York, but we will have to do something different in Barbados against Afghanistan. Yuzi or Kuldeep can be used here. He said that we are lucky that we have all-rounders. We have 8 batsmen and 7 bowling options. In such a situation, India will be flexible about its batting order. Changes will be made according to the circumstances.

He said that every situation is different. It cannot be considered set in stone. I believe in flexibility. Against Pakistan, we sent Akshar Patel up and Rishabh Pant came in at number three. This was done after a lot of thought. I don't think we will have this flexibility in Test cricket. Dravid also said that it feels good to come to the West Indies for the Super-8 stage.

He further said that it is good to play cricket on Caribbean soil. We have done some practice sessions here, after which we are fully prepared. He said that Afghanistan is a very dangerous team. Afghan players play more leagues than our players. They are not a team that can be taken lightly. They deserve to reach the Super-8.
