There will be a golden chance for the Indian team in front of Afghanistan to win the semifinal and make the bid to enter the semi-finals. Afghanistan’s team is out of the World Cup 2019. Although Afghanistan will enter the first tournament of the tournament against India.
After the batting of Afghanistan, bowling did not even flop
Afghanistan’s team has gone back lagging in the World Cup 2019. So far, the team’s batsmen were not able to score runs, but Afghanistan’s poor bowling against England was also exposed in front of everyone. He will never forget the beating of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi against England. Still, would like to open the account of a team winning against India.
Team India changes possible
The most eyeball in this match will be on the playing XI of the Indian team because there is a possibility of several changes against Afghanistan. Shikhar Dhawan has been out of the tournament due to injury. Instead of Dhawan, Rishabh Pant has been included in the team, but will it be seen whether Pant will be included in the playing XI? Opening responsibility will be on Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul’s pair.
The change in India’s playing XI can also be done because Bhuvneshwar Kumar has also been out of the team for a few matches. In such a situation, the captain and management of the team will have to choose the last 11 players by taking care of all the fronts.
