IND vs AFG Preview: 

  • Virat Kohli boasts an impressive overall batting average of more than 49 across the three international cricket formats, but it’s in the realm of One Day Internationals (ODIs) where he truly shines. With a remarkable tally of over 13,100 runs in this format, the former Indian captain maintains a striking average of 57.50. Just this past Sunday, Kohli showcased his prowess by amassing an impressive 85 runs from his position at number three. Our prediction is that Kohli will lead the charge as India’s highest run-scorer in their upcoming encounter with Afghanistan.
  • Jasprit Bumrah, the proficient right-arm pace bowler, delivered a stellar performance in Match 5 against Australia, securing figures of 2-35 from his allotted 10 overs. Remarkably, Bumrah has managed to claim four or more wickets in seven out of his 78 appearances in ODIs. Consequently, we believe he is the top contender to emerge as India’s leading wicket-taker in the forthcoming match.
  • On the Afghan side, Ibrahim Zadran arrives with an impressive ODI average exceeding 51, embellished by four centuries and four half-centuries from his 20 innings in this format. Although his recent form has seen him accumulate only 29 runs in his last two ODI innings, we anticipate a resurgence from Zadran in this high-profile clash. Our selection for Afghanistan’s highest run-scorer against India is none other than Ibrahim Zadran.
  • Rashid Khan, Afghanistan’s formidable spinner, stands as a significant threat with the ball. He has amassed a remarkable 336 wickets across all international formats and maintains an exceptional average of 19.81 in ODIs, coupled with a striking strike-rate of 28.1. Thus, Rashid Khan is a strong candidate to lead Afghanistan’s wicket-taking charts in this fixture.
  • After concluding the 2022 T20 World Cup as the highest run-scorer, Virat Kohli is keen to replicate his success and secure the top run-scorer position in consecutive world tournaments. Our prediction for this match is that Kohli will surpass the 31.5-run mark, further cementing his status as a cricketing luminary.

India’s right-handed opener, Shubman Gill, was sidelined for the inaugural match of the World Cup 2023 due to his battle with dengue fever.

Winning Chances: 

Considering Afghanistan’s performance with the bat in their previous match against Bangladesh, a triumph against any team in this tournament would be nothing short of a surprise, especially when facing the favorites and tournament hosts, India. We anticipate Afghanistan to put up a stronger fight in this contest, yet they’ll need to significantly elevate their performance to pose any genuine challenges to India.

India displayed commendable form against Australia and secured a convincing victory, despite lackluster individual scores from most of their top-order batsmen. Our prediction leans toward an improved batting display from India in this game, resulting in a comfortable win over Afghanistan come Wednesday.

IND vs AFG Key Players: 


Virat Kohli 

The former captain has showcased exceptional form while representing his country over the past 18 months. His contributions were instrumental in guiding the team to a remarkable turnaround, securing victory even after they had initially slumped to a precarious 3-2 within the first two overs of the match.

KL Rahul 

The wicket-keeping batsman emerged as the highest run-scorer for India in their clash against Australia last Sunday, underscoring his ongoing consistency in international cricket. He delivered a notable performance, amassing an unbeaten 97 runs from 115 balls during Match 5.

Jasprit Bumrah 

The right-arm fast bowler secured a wicket both in the early stages of Australia’s innings, during the third over, and also in the 43rd over. His skill set includes the capacity to dismiss even the most formidable opening batsmen in this tournament.

Ravindra Jadeja 

The bowling all-rounder once again delivered an outstanding performance with his spin bowling in Chennai last Sunday. The left-arm spinner managed to dismiss Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, and Alex Carey, ultimately finishing with figures of 3-28.


Ibrahim Zadran 

The 21-year-old batsman is eager to make a significant impact against India’s formidable bowling lineup. While he boasts an impressive ODI record, a noteworthy performance in this match will undoubtedly capture the attention of cricket enthusiasts worldwide.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz 

The opening wicket-keeping batsman emerged as the highest run-scorer for his team against Bangladesh. Nevertheless, he must have felt a sense of disappointment as he narrowly missed reaching a half-century in the tournament, falling just three runs short.

Fazalhaq Farooqi 

The left-arm medium-fast bowler successfully dismissed Litton Das during Saturday’s match in Dharamsala. Farooqi boasts an impressive strike-rate of under 30 in this format, and he is likely to relish the pace-friendly conditions in Delhi.

Rashid Khan 

In the initial match, the right-arm spinner failed to secure any wickets in the loss to Bangladesh. Nevertheless, he’s determined to leave a notable impact against the tournament hosts and favorites in the upcoming game.
