You know, we play better spin in the nets sessions. If you see Rashid [Khan], Nabi [Mohammad], Noor [Ahmad] and Mujeeb [Ur Rahman], we play them every day,” Shahidi said. “I think our team is far, far better [than what it showed against Bangladesh in Dharamsala] at playing spin bowling. That game we know we struggled, but [based on] one game, you can’t say you’re not good enough. That game is gone now, and we know we can play spinners better and we’ll try to come back in next game.” Hashmatullah Shahidi was quoted by ESPNcricinfo.

The Afghanistan captain further said that

We have the talent and we have the skill to make a comeback in the next game and for the rest of the tournament. India will get a huge crowd support in the game against us. And we have to work through the crowd pressure,” Hashmatullah Shahidi said.

Afghanistan won the toss and elect to bat first in Delhi. Both the openers had a good and steady start. However, They could not capitalise on the starts and lost their wickets. Bumrah took the initial wicket and also bowled an excellent spell in death.
