  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz- Gurbaz has been in top form this world cup. He is the leading run scorer of the tournament with 167 runs in 4 matches at a strike rate of 150. He could not score well in the last game but looks in good form so far.
  • Gulbadin Naib- Gulbadin has scored 60 runs so far at a strike rate of 116. He has been given the top order spot in this world cup and we back him for a good innings on this pitch. He bowled for the first time in the last match and picked 2 wickets.

AFG Team Form

The loss against West Indies in the last match was the first loss for AFG in this world cup. They qualified for the super 8 round before that game and will try not to feel demotivated for this crucial fixture.

Afghanistan Predicted Playing 11

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Ibrahim Zadran, Gulbadin Naib, Azmatullah Omarzai, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Karim Janat, Rashid Khan (c), Noor Ahmad, Naveen-ul-Haq, Fazalhaq Farooqi

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

Indian team has kept spinner Kuldeep Yadav on stand-by for the West Indies pitches but we are not expecting his participation in this match as pacers will be favoured.

IND Key Players

  • Rishabh Pant- Rishabh Pant is the top batter for India with 96 runs with a strike rate of 124.67. He has played well on the difficult pitches and we expect him to switch gears on this batting surface. He will be a crucial batter at his new spot at no.3.
  • Suryakumar Yadav- Suryakumar Yadav is the no.1 batsman on the ICC T20I rankings. He averages 44.89 in the T20Is and scored a half century against USA. His strike rate in this world cup is 96 but we back him to score at a high strike rate on this batting pitch.
  • Arshdeep Singh- Arshdeep is bowling well in T20 World cup 2024 and he has picked 7 wickets in 3 matches. He is bowling at an impressive strike rate of 10.2 and his best spell came against USA where he finished with 4/9.
  • Jasprit Bumrah- Bumrah is the player of all seasons, all formats and all pitches. He is in confident form and has picked 5 wickets in 3 matches at an average of just 9.00. Bumrah went wicket less in the last game but he will get good assistance from this surface here.

IND Team Form

India will go into Super 8 round confidently as they have not lost any match so far. They have the momentum by their side with 3 wins in 4 matches.

India Predicted Playing 11

Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj

Afghanistan vs India Betting Odds

The bookmakers are backing India at 1.22 to win against Afghanistan as they are currently in a good momentum while Afghanistan is coming to this game after a defeat against West Indies in the last match. India has not won any match so far and the players look confident while the AFG batting line-up is not as good as their bowling.

Who will win Afghanistan vs India Match?

As mentioned above, Afghanistan does not have a strong and reliable batting unit. Gurbaz and Ibrahim are the only batters that have 100+ runs so far but if they are down then there are no middle-order batters to take the team to a good score. Indian bowlers look dangerous and they can try to restrict AFG to a low total. India will win this match against Afghanistan.

🏆 Afghanistan vs India Prediction

India and Afghanistan will face each other for the 9th time in the T20 format. AFG is yet to register a win against IND in this format so the latter has the dominating head to head advantage. India’s top-order is in a worrisome situation as Rohit and Virat are not looking up to the mark but the middle-order is trying to be reliable but the bowling unit looks tight. Indian bowling attack will be difficult for the AFG batters and we can expect them to fall for a low scoring total.
