|🤔 What||IND vs AFG, 28th Match, WC 2019|
|📅 When||21st June, Saturday|
Rattled Afghan spinners look for redemption…
Afghanistan was taken by a storm when England thrashed them a 150 run defeat after scoring a MAMMOTH 398 in the first innings. Not that anyone was expecting them to win against the Tournament favorites but we still expected some fight; especially from Afghan Spin Trio of Rashid, Mujeeb, and Nabi. This is why the fact that Rashid Khan leaked 110 runs off his 9 overs was more surprising than England scoring almost 400 runs in an ODI!
India on the other hand, defeated arch-rivals Pakistan by 89 runs. Batting first, Rohit Sharma’s 140 catapults the Indian total to 336, a total which proved to be an uphill task for the Pakistanis who only managed to score 212 for the loss of 6 wickets. India looks in sublime form and is looking like THE team to beat this tournament.
Weaknesses: No decent batsmen at the #4 spot.
We Know Cricket Hot Take 🔥
Since Dhawan is ruled out of the World Cup, the opening spot is taken by KL Rahul. This leaves a gap at the #4 position, a position which India has been looking for takers for the past many months. Vijay Shankar performed well in India’s last match but was awkward against steep bounce. He doesn’t look ready for the grandest stage of them all and we would suggest Kohli bring in either Dinesh Karthik or Rishab Pant. Rishabh Pant is also inexperienced but much better batsmen than Shankar. India doesn’t really need Shankar’s medium pace and should be playing a proper batsman in his place.

IND vs AFG World Cup 2019 Dream 11 Team Prediction and Suggestions 🧠
🧤 Wicket Keeper: Dhoni is the obvious choice here for the wicketkeeper spot in your Dream 11 team. No debating.
🏏 Batsmen: Rohit hit 140 in the last game and is in sublime form. Virat Kohli is a no brainer. Hashmatullah Shahidi and Afghan can be picked from the Afghanistani side as they both showed some fight against England in their last game.
😎 All Rounders: Hardik Pandya and M. Nabi are great all-rounders and must be included in your Dream 11 squad. You can also select G. Naib in your team as he’s also a decent all-rounder.
🧶 Bowlers: Even though Rashid got thrashed in his last game, he is a champion bowler and should not be ruled out. Bumrah is the world’s leading fast bowler, so his inclusion is a given. Complete your Dream 11 squad by including either of Kuldeep or Chahal.
