Team India will take on Afghanistan in the 2nd T20I of the ongoing three-match series at Holkar Stadium in Indore on January 14, Sunday. The Men in Blue have taken 1-0 series lead after winning the first T20I at PCA IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Thursday.

Indian all-rounder Shivam Dube played a brilliant knock of 60 off 40 balls to hand the hosts six-wicket win over visiting Afghanistan team. With a target of 159, Team India chased it down with 2.2 overs to spare. Dube smashed a six and four to take the team through the finishing line.

Team India landed in Indore on Friday as they will look to clinch the three-match series against visiting Afghanistan. However, Indian players had a fun time while travelling from Mohali to India's cleanest city, Indore.

In a video shared by BCCI on its X handle (formerly Twitter), Team India players were asked what is famous in Indore. The most common answers were Poha, as it is most famous food in the city. While others hilariously picked local boy Avesh Khan as most popular in Indore.

In the end, Avesh Khan said, "Hello everyone, Aap sabhi ka swagat hai mere sheher Indore mein"

After the second T20I, India and Afghanistan will fly to Bengaluru for the final match of the series at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on January 17.

After the three-match T20I series, Team India will play five-match Test series against visiting England, starting on January 25.

Virat Kohli to feature in the second T20I

Virat Kohli is expected to make himself available for selection for the second T20I against Afghanistan. The 35-year-old missed the series opener as he flew back home from Mohali for personal reasons. It was reported that Kohli headed to home to celebrate his daughter's birthday, which was on January 11.

Kohli made his comeback to T20I squad after a gap of 14 months. The last time former India captain featured in the shortest format was in T20 World Cup 2022, where the Men in Blue lost to England in the semifinal.

Kohli is currently the leading run-getter in T20Is with 4008 runs, including a century and 37 half-centuries, at an average of 52.73 in 115 matches.

Rohit Sharma also made a comeback to T20Is as skipper in the 1st T20I but didn't have a good outing as he dismissed for a duck after mix-up with Shubman Gill.
