In the ongoing tournament of the CWC 2019, India would be heading to the Rose Bowl, Southampton in order to face Afghanistan. So far in this cricket tournament, India remains unbeaten in the competition and with seven points they are in the fourth spot of the points table.
India’s one match was abandoned due to rain; hence, the points for that match were divided among the two teams. On the other hand, Afghanistan has lost all of the five matches they have played so far in the tournament. For the team, breaking the losing streak is quite impossible. However, in case they win the match, it can help the Afghans to make a comeback in the tournament.
The pitch condition at The Rose Bowl, Southampton is going to be favorable for the batsmen. Being a batting pitch, it would allow the batsmen to play their shots perfectly. In case, India wins the toss they should elect to bat first. Moreover, it’s the same field where Rohit Sharma played a tough innings of 122* of 144 against a reproved pace attack of South Africa.
If one takes a look into the great form of the Indian cricket squad, Saturday’s match against Afghanistan is going to be a child’s play.
1.Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul is in great form for India.
2.Shikhar Dhawan’s injury is a thing of concern but high hopes are on Rishab Pant.
It’s the team who has not been able to open their account in the CWC 2019. To their dismay, none of their matches was abandoned, or else they would have secured some points.
1.In the tournament, Ashghar Afghan and Hashmatullah Shahidi have done the best for Afghanistan.
2.Hazratullah Zazai didn’t play in the last match and is expected to be fit for this game. He can’t afford to give away his wicket easily and expose Afghanistan’s frail middle order in the powerplay.
3.Allrounder Mohammad Nabi is going to be a great all-rounder.
4.Rashid Khan and Gulbadin Naib might be able to put India under pressure.
