The 28th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will see Team India facing minnows Afghanistan at The Rose Bowl, Southampton on Saturday.

Team India are currently on a high after crushing arch rivals in their previous encounter and continued their unbeaten run against Pakistan in World Cups to seven games. They are currently placed at number four in the points table with 7 points from 4 games. They would look to continue their unbeaten streak in this World Cup and increase their chances of qualifying for the semi finals.

Afghanistan on the other hand, have lost all their games and have failed to fire on a consistent basis. Their batsmen have failed to put enough runs on the board and their bowlers too are not able to seize crucial situations. But India would not take them lightly. They gave other Asian sides a run for their money in the Asia Cup tournament which was held in Dubai last year.

Where will the match be played?

The clash between India and Afghanistan will be played at The Rose Bowl, Southampton.

When and how to watch the match live:

The match will be broadcast on Star Sports 1, Star Sports HD1, Star Sports 2 and Star Sports HD2 in English commentary, Star Sports 3 and Star Sports HD3 in Hindi commentary. It will also be live streamed on Hotstar from 1500 HRS IST. The toss will happen at 14.30 HRS IST.

Team News:

With Bhuvneshwar Kumar ruled out of action for at least 10 days, Mohammad Shami is expected to take his place. It would be interesting to see if Rishabh Pant will be selected in the playing XI straightaway after his inclusion into the squad.    

Probable XI of both sides:

India: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah

Afghanistan: Gulbadin Naib (c), Hazratullah Zazai, Ikram Ali Khil (wk), Noor Ali Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Dawlat Zadran
