It’s the gold medal clash and India are up against Afghanistan in the last match of the Asian Games. Having already won the women’s event, the Indian men will look to complete the double today. But they’re up against a quality Afghanistan attack, especially their spin duo of Qais Ahmed and Zahir Khan. It’ll be a battle between the in-form Indian batters and the in-form Afghan bowlers.
