India and Afghanistan meet each other on Saturday in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, and it is expected to be a one-sided game. With India's superior batting and Afghansiatn's paper-thin bowling attack, the Men in Blue are likely to have a field day. 

However, if the Afghans want to run India close, the role of Dawlat Zardan will be crucial. He came into the tournament as his side's best player with the new ball and he has emerged as someone who has been able to pick wickets at regular intervals. 

He will be bowling to KL Rahul, whose struggles against the shining ball are not new. The Indian relies on playing it safe in the first ten overs - which is exactly what he did against Pakistan as well. Rahul's woes against the new ball, when the bowlers bowled in the good length areas, saw him constantly get out of the crease in order to get to the pitch of the ball.

This weakness is what Zadran will be looking to exploit. If the player can get the cherry to pitch on middle stump and move across from the wicket-keeper batsman, the Afghans could get an early wicket. 

However, if Zadran errs, Rahul has all the skills to smash him out of the park.
