IND vs AFG Team Previews


Continuing with its excellent form in the buildup to this event, India began the tournament on a winning note by defeating Australia in a low-scoring encounter.

Asked to bowl first, it was a brilliant bowling effort by the Indians as they bundled Australia for a below-par 199 runs in the first innings. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj bowled an excellent line and length to keep the opponents under pressure right from the beginning, while the spinners picked up wickets at regular intervals and didn’t allow the batsmen to settle down.

It was a rare top-order failure for India as they set out to chase a modest target of 200. Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, and Shreyas Iyer were all dismissed for a duck. However, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul came up with a memorable performance to stabilize the innings and helped steer India towards a win.

With Shubhman Gill unlikely to be fit by Wednesday, we can expect an unchanged playing eleven. Overall, India has one of the most balanced teams and is likely to be up for any challenge. If the surface is what like what we saw in Delhi for the previous match, there is a small chance that Suryakumar Yadav could come into the playing eleven in place of Shreyas Iyer.

Afghanistan's poor run in the World Cup continues as they were overpowered by Bangladesh in their opening fixture.

Ibrahim Zadran and Rahmanullah Gurbaz gave the team a decent start with the bat, with the latter going on to become the top-scorer for the team. However, as expected, the middle-order batting was a weak spot for Afghanistan as they went from 111 for 2 to 156 all-out.

Hashmatullah Shahidi, Najibullah Zadran, and Rahmat Shah have been very inconsistent in the recent matches and they will need to put up a much better performance if Afghanistan wants to take on a quality team like India. The batters may end up being more productive in Delhi with a flat pictha nd small outfield but overpowering the Indians will require something special.

The visitors will bank on its strong spin attack to deliver the goods in this game. Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Mohammad Nabi were all wicketless in the last match but will hope to turn things around here.

Afghanistan’s pace attack isn’t the strongest one around and the seamers will need to be spot-on with their line and length as they face the in-form Indian batting. It would be a brave man that underestimates the Afghan spinners but with all due respect to them, they are going to be up against a massive challenge in this match.

Pitch and Conditions

The Arun Jaitley Stadium offers an excellent batting track. The previous match played here saw a total of 754 runs scored, which is the most for a World Cup game. The pitch is dry with very little bounce. There is very little in it for the bowlers and they will need to be very disciplined with the line and length.

The weather will remain quite warm, with temperatures of close to 35 degrees Celsius with plenty of sunshine.

    Total Runs in the Highest Scoring over of the Match

    Over 17.5 (1.725)


The last match played here saw a total of 754 runs scored at close to 8 runs per over. Given the batsmen-friendly wicket and the quality of batting, especially in the Indian team, we can expect a few high-scoring overs.

  1. Parimatch


    Total 4s for India

    Over 29.5 (2.00)


The ground at Delhi isn’t the biggest one around and with the quick outfield, we are likely to see plenty of 4s being scored. Indian batters are especially comfortable picking the gaps instead of clearing the boundaries.

  1. Dafabet


    Any Player to Score a Century

    Yes (1.97)


The previous game saw 3 South African batsmen score a century. With the kind of form that the Indian batting is in, we can expect at least one of them to reach a triple-digit score.
