Since India is through to the finals, the team could rest some of their significant players for tomorrow’s game ahead of the finale. KL Rahul could join the playing XI in place of Ambati Rayudu or Dinesh Karthik and Khaleel Ahmed or Siddarth Kaul could replace Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have been in scintillating form since the start of the tournament and are the value picks for fantasy cricket. Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal are the star players in the bowling unit.
The Afghanistan squad is likely to go with the same playing XI in tomorrow’s dead rubber game. The team has been performing exceedingly well in all the matches despite their loss in the last two games.
Hashmatullah Shahidi is the ace player in the batting lineup; he is coming off from three consecutive half centuries. There are also Mohammad Shahzad and Rahmat Shah to lead the batting front. Moahmmad Nabi hasn’t picked so many wickets but has been stingy with the runs. Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman are likely to threaten the in-form Indian batsmen.
|Rohit Sharma (c)||Mohammad Shahzad (wk)|
