It’s change that Afghanistan need, so a switch in format might do the trick. After a wretched start at their new home base in Lucknow, losing the ODI series 3-0, the Rashid Khan-led side are desperate for a turnaround. But let’s break down the nature of the challenge they’re going to face. It’s a West Indies team that comprises of a lot of stars who’ve done well at the CPL recently and – you would think – they’d be even stronger in the T20 format than in 50 overs. Although their recent record isn’t anything to boast of, having lost all their six matches this year. But, if the ODIs revealed anything, it’s that this is a different team under Kieron Pollard. Having said that, Nicholas Pooran’s ball-tampering ban will still be stinging.
