Match preview, Ind v Afg: An upbeat India look to continue their winning form
India, however, faces selection headaches against Afghanistan after an injured Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out of the World Cup.
When an in-form India take on minnows Afghanistan in the World Cup 2019 clash at the Rose Bowl in Southampton on Saturday, all eyes will be on Rishabh Pant's selection. India’s batting order is full of right-handed batsmen and Pan’t inclusion means they keep the left-right combination in the middle orders. But that would mean resting Vijay Shankar, who himself seems to be in a good form. Meanwhile, in the bowling department, Mohammed Shami will replace an injured Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
