New Delhi. India and Afghanistan will face each other in the Super 8 today i.e. on 20th June. Team India's star batsman Virat Kohli's bat has not worked in the tournament so far. Virat Kohli has been able to score only 5 runs in 3 matches so far. Former South African cricketer Morne Morkel is hopeful that Virat will definitely make a splash in the Super 8. Morkel says that there is no need to worry about Virat Kohli.

“Don't worry about Virat. Class players know how to score runs at the right time. If I were a bowler I would feel nervous bowling to him. He is a player who rotates the strike, concedes boundaries even on good deliveries. I am excited to see how he performs. He will definitely play well in the Super 8s,” Morne Morkel said on Star Sports.
