India vs Afghanistan T20I Schedule: Rohit Sharma-led Team India will face Ibrahim Zadran-spearheaded Afghanistan in the three-game T20I series, starting January 11. The two sides will face each other in the marquee series which marks the beginning of the T20 World Cup 2024 countdown.

Notably, the upcoming three-match T20I series against Afghanistan will be India’s last T20I series before the T20 World Cup 2024. The Men in Blue has got just three games to experiment with their lineup before they head to the World Cup event, which begins on June 1.

The India vs Afghanistan T20I series begins on January 11 in Mohali followed by the games in Indore and Bengaluru on January 14 and 17 respectively.

Team India’s squad for the T20I series was announced a couple of days ago. The Indian lineup had a string of surprises in it with the biggest of it being the retention of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.

Rohit Sharma will lead the side and is very likely to be the leader during the T20 World Cup 2024 as well. Virat Kohli has also managed to retain his place after the BCCI decided to move ahead in its approach post the T20 World Cup 2022.

The likes of Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav will miss the three-match T20I leg due to their injuries. While Hardik is still recovering from an ankle injury that he sustained during the ODI World Cup 2023, Suryakumar Yadav is set to undergo sports hernia surgery.
