Afghanistan have been a big disappointment in the tournament yet, uncompetitive and uncharacteristically submissive.

One can’t be over critical of a team still new to international cricket. But even ardent fans will agree that Afghanistan’s performances are a comedown from the 2015 World Cup when they had played with great spunk and not a little flair.

In today’s game, their chances of a win tend towards zero, more so with ace spinner Rashid Khan struggling badly.

India are not only unbeaten, but have been so dominant that Afghanistan will earn brownie points if they even manage to bat out 50 overs or restrict Kohli & Co. to under 325.

Key Players: Rohit, Bumrah; Nabi, Rashid
