Ind vs Afg: India is set to face Afghanistan in their second World Cup match at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on October 11. The Indian team is coming off a remarkable victory over Australia in Chennai, thanks to an outstanding performance by Virat Kohli, who scored 85 runs, and KL Rahul, who contributed 97 runs. This partnership of 165 runs helped India chase down the 200-run target with six wickets to spare.

Due to Shubman Gill’s dengue-related absence, Ishan Kishan was included in the team for the previous match and is expected to continue as the opening batsman. The team management has expressed a desire to have KL Rahul in the middle order, so Rohit Sharma will open the innings with Kishan, followed by Virat Kohli.

Despite Shreyas Iyer’s disappointing performance against Australia, it is likely that he will retain his place in the playing XI for the upcoming game. KL Rahul will occupy the number 5 slot in the batting order. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja will serve as the team’s all-rounders. Although R Ashwin delivered a good performance in Chennai, India might consider playing Shardul Thakur in Delhi. The previous match at the Arun Jaitley Stadium saw over 700 runs scored, so Shardul’s inclusion would add depth to the batting. The specialist bowlers for India are expected to be Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohammed Siraj.

Anticipated Indian XI against Afghanistan:

  • Rohit Sharma (Captain)
  • Ishan Kishan
  • Virat Kohli
  • Shreyas Iyer
  • KL Rahul
  • Hardik Pandya
  • Ravindra Jadeja
  • Shardul Thakur
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Mohammed Siraj
  • Jasprit Bumrah
