IND vs AFG Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: Asia Cup 2022 Match 11 | IND vs AFG Dream11 Prediction Today | Dubai Pitch Report

Heading into the Super 4, both India and Afghanistan could have viewed this match as an avenue towards the Asia Cup 2022 Final. Instead, both teams are out of the running and only have pride to play for after close, heartbreaking defeats in recent days.

Most recent was Afghanistan’s gut-wrenching defeat to Pakistan last night in Sharjah. They looked odds on to keep their campaign alive when the 20th over of Pakistan’s over began, but Naseem Shah’s dream run caused nightmares for Mohammad Nabi’s team. Now, they must get up for this clash quickly as they have another opportunity to build confidence ahead of the T20 World Cup.

Similar applies to India. Yes, defending totals in the UAE is mighty difficult, but 2022 has been a year where India have struggled to defend anywhere and across formats. In the wake of their damaging defeat to Sri Lanka, skipper Rohit Sharma said his team are still searching for answers. Today is an opportunity to help answer some of those, with KL Rahul’s form, the team’s finishing with the bat, and death bowling all under the spotlight.

IND vs AFG Possible Playing XI

India could bring Dinesh Karthik in to improve the team’s finishing, especially as Deepak Hooda was not used with the ball.

India: 1. Rohit Sharma (c), 2. KL Rahul, 3. Virat Kohli, 4. Suryakumar Yadav, 5. Hardik Pandya, 6. Rishabh Pant (wk), 7. Deepak Hooda/Dinesh Karthik, 8. Bhuvneshwar Kumar/Deepak Chahar, 9. R Ashwin, 10. Yuzvendra Chahal/Ravi Bishnoi, 11. Arshdeep Singh

Afghanistan could stick with the same XI that nearly beat Pakistan yesterday.

Afghanistan: 1. Hazratullah Zazai, 2. Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), 3. Ibrahim Zadran, 4. Najibullah Zadran, 5. Mohammad Nabi (c), 6. Karim Janat/Usman Ghani, 7. Rashid Khan, 8. Azmatullah Omarzai, 9. Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 10. Fareed Ahmed, 11. Fazalhaq Farooqi

IND vs AFG Key Players to Watch & Stats

India:

  • Rohit Sharma scored an excellent 41-ball 72 two days ago on this ground against SL. Last year at Abu Dhabi, he hit 74 off 47 balls against Afghanistan.

  • Fareed Ahmed took 3/31 yesterday, with two wickets coming at the death. If India aren’t switched on at this stage, Fareed can strike especially with the longer square boundaries.

Dubai International Stadium Pitch Report and Weather
