ICC World Cup 2019: AFGH vs IND Dream11 Captain; Watch out for Rohit, Kohli and Najibullah

By Chaitanya Laxman

In the ICC World Cup 2019, Afghanistan face mighty India on Saturday. Afghanistan have looked pale so far in this tournament and in their last match, were brutally thrashed by Eoin Morgan. And now they are lined up against India who have been highly clinical with their performance so far.

The match will be an interesting test of spin as both sides have quality spinners in their ranks but it will also be an opportunity for the batsmen to stretch their good run. For the Dream11 Captain, don’t look beyond these three star players.

With scores of 51 and 43 in the first two games, Zadran started the World Cup on a high but has dipped a bit in his recent appearances. However, that doesn’t decrease his potential to deliver a killer blow with the bat. Importantly he scores at a brisk pace so Afghanistan will want him to stay at the crease for a long time.

#2. Virat Kohli:

The Indian skipper has continued his purple patch with two consecutive fifties and has looked in ominous touch.

However, he hasn’t scored an ODI hundred in his last five innings which is kind of strange for him so expect him to make a big one on Saturday.

Batting average in 2019: 56.28

Total number of hundreds in 2019: 3

Total number of runs in 2019: 788

#1. Rohit Sharma:

With two hundreds and one fifty, Rohit Sharma has set the World Cup on fire. Importantly he has shown that he can bat in al gears and can tear apart any bowling attack.

He missed on a double hundred against Pakistan in the last match so can he amend that against Afghanistan?

Batting average in England: 71.85

Total number of hundreds in England: 4

Total number of runs in England: 1006

Batting average in 2019: 58.33

Total number of hundreds in 2019: 3
