AFGH vs IND Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match

Dubai, September 25 at 05:00 PM IST

India, after humbling Pakistan on Sunday to book a place in the Asia Cup 2018 final, face Afghanistan in an inconsequential Super Group tie on Tuesday.

After Hong Kong scare in their tournament opener, India have produced three back-to-back clinical performances. The 210-run stand between Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan on Sunday against arch-rivals Pakistan gave India their biggest win in terms of wickets. They would look to build on that ahead of the final.

On the other hand, Afghanistan suffered a heartbreak on Sunday after failing to cross the finish line against Bangladesh on Sunday. On both occasions in Super Four fixtures, they have failed to finish the game. They would look to put that behind and produce a better show for their fans.

Pitch and weather conditions: Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Dubai has not produced high-scoring games in the tournament. The surface has offered help to the slow bowlers more than the fast.

Last ODI result at the venue: Pakistan 237/7 lost to India 238/1 – 23 September 2018, Asia Cup 2018

  • Since this is a dead-rubber, Afghanistan can make a couple of changes in their line-up.
  • India can give their regulars some rest and bench players some game time. KL Rahul and Manish Pandey may slot in for the likes of Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik. Khaleel Ahmed is another who might come in for Jasprit Bumrah.

All-rounders –  Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja

AFGH vs IND Squads

AFGH vs IND Dream11 Team

Wicket-keeper: You can choose either of the two keepers. However, the better choice would be Mohammad Shahzad who has scored 144 runs in four outings so far.

Batsmen: Indian openers – Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma – are in ominous form, scoring almost 600 runs between them. Afghanistan’s Hashmatullah Shahidi is the third leading run-getter in the tournament, with 263 runs against his name.

All-rounders: Mohammad Nabi and Ravindra Jadeja would be our two picks in this department. Nabi has not made an impact yet in the tournament but is a quality player who can deliver with both the bat and ball. Jadeja could be the most threatening from the Indian spinners since Afghanistan’s batting line-up is packed with right-handers.

Bowlers: Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Rashid Khan have carried Afghanistan’s bowling so far in the tournament; the duo can again pose challenges to Indian batsmen. Since this a dead-rubber, India may give rest to Jasprit Bumrah, so we are going with the two wrist spinners – Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal.

Captain/Vice-captain Choices:

Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Hashmatullah Shahidi and Rashid Khan
