<p>Meanwhile, Sehwag believes that India should start Mohammed Shami against Afghanistan rather than Ravichandran Ashwin. According to the illustrious starter, the Arun Jaitley Stadium will provide different circumstances than the Chidambaram Stadium.</p>
<p>During the inaugural match played at the location between South Africa and Sri Lanka, about 750 runs were scored. Sehwag advised Shami to play and Ashwin to rest for the “big matches” after the Proteas posted the greatest total in World Cup history.</p>
<p>“I anticipate that Ravichandran Ashwin will relax. In addition to taking a wicket against Australia, Mohammed Shami has been in excellent form, according to the 44-year-old on Cricbuzz.</p>
<p>“The ground is smaller and this is a different wicket. Additionally, Ashwin’s age is a consideration. India would thus want to preserve him for the important matches,” he said.</p>
<p>Meanwhile, Ashwin stood out during his 10-over stint on his home field, taking one wicket and conceding 34 runs. The spin three, which included Kuldeep Yadav (2/42) and Ravindra Jadeja (3/38), dismantled the Australian middle order to hold them to 199 runs in total.</p>
<p>After India’s captain Rohit Sharma, Shreyas Iyer, and Ishan Kishan were out for ducks, KL Rahul produced an unbroken 97 runs, and Virat Kohli added 85 runs to help the hosts cross the finish line and earn two significant points.</p>
