Afghanistan vs India T20 head to head looks at the historical record of these 2 international teams in T20 matches including the number of wins, highest and lowest scores and player records in T20 head to head games between AFG and IND.
To date, Afghanistan vs India T20 head to head has produced just 2 fixtures both coming in T20 World Cups and both coming prior to Afghanistan even gaining associate level membership of the ICC let alone Test status.
It’s therefore perhaps not unsurprising that both Afghanistan vs India T20 matches have so far finished with the later running out comfortable winners.
Indeed, so early was the first T20 meeting between these 2 sides in the 2010 World Cup that it represented Afghanistan’s debut on the biggest stage following their meteoric rise from division 5 of the world game to an opening match of the World Cup against 2007 winners India.
Afghanistan showed a few early nerves in falling to 29 for 3 but recovered thanks to a fifty by Noor Ali who shared a partnership of 68 with Asghar Afghan in helping his team to a respectable total of 115 for 8.
While the score was never likely to pose a serious threat to the powerful Indian batting order who knocked it off inside 15 overs for the loss of just 3 wickets, Afghanistan had certainly demonstrated the undoubted potential that continued to grow over the proceeding decade.
Indeed, by the time the 2 teams met again in the 2012, Afghanistan had already made massive improvements in their game and gave India a real scare during their run chase.
Having limited India to 159 for 5 in their 20 overs, a score which required the likes of Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina to dig deep to post, Afghanistan were in with a real chance at 69 for 2 at the half way stage. However, the loss of 3 wickets in 6 balls underlined a disparity in quality as well as experience and despite some powerful hitting from Mohammed Nabi, Afghanistan ultimately ended 23 runs short of their target.
In 2021, A third India vs Afghanistan T20 head to head match is due to occur again during a World Cup. Can Afghanistan break their duck against India?
