IND vs AFG Today Match Prediction- ICC World Cup 2023, Match 9

IND vs AFG Today Match Prediction- ICC World Cup 2023, Match 9. The IND vs AFG ICC World Cup 2023 match will be played in Delhi on October 11, Wednesday. The match starts at 2 pm IST. Delhi has seen South Africa post the highest total of this World Cup so far against Sri Lanka (428/5). 

India are heading into this match after an emphatic win over Australia. KL Rahul and Virat Kohli’s 165-run stand took India to victory after the Indian spinners set up the game for the side. Against Afghanistan, India should play with an aggressive approach and boost their net run rate. 

Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan after being dismissed for ducks against Australia should try and maximise run-scoring opportunities. They should look to play out the first 10 overs and then cash in when the ball gets old. Afghanistan’s spin threat of Rashid Khan and Mujeen Ur Rehman will surely test the Indian batters. 

Afghanistan lost a good opportunity to notch up an early win against Bangladesh. They were bowled out for 156 and were below par with the bat on the day. The tournament gets tougher from here on for them as they play tougher teams across different venues. Their batters need to bat well and give their bowlers enough to defend.

The pitch at the Arun Jaitley stadium has produced the most number of runs so far in a game. South Africa posted 428/5 batting first against Sri Lanka. For the first game, it was a placid-looking wicket with the ball coming onto the bat. The ground staff and the curator will definitely look at preparing a better surface for this game to bring the bowlers into play. After the first game at the venue, a turning track can be expected. 

India and Afghanistan played three ODIs so far with India winning two and Afghanistan none yet. One match ended in a draw. India defeated Afghanistan by 11 runs in the 2019 World Cup match.
