Indian National Cricket Team have made an excellent start to their ICC World Cup 2019 campaign. They have won three of the four matches while one had to call off due to heavy showers. India will hope to keep the winning run going when they face minnows Afghanistan on June 22 (Saturday) at Rose Bowl in Southampton.

India not taking Afghanistan lightly

The Men in Blues will be without Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. While Dhawan will miss the rest of the tournament owing to a fractured thumb, Bhuvneshwar has a hamstring pull and will miss two-three games. As a result, India will have to make a few forced changes in their playing XI from the match against Pakistan. Mohammed Shami, who had an outstanding time leading to the World Cup will slot in place of Bhuvneshwar while Vijay Shankar if fit, is likely to play in the middle order.

Virat Kohli & Co has admitted that they will play with the same intensity and won’t take the bottom-placed Afghans likely. India will aim to secure two vital points and go one step closer to the semifinals.

Here is the predicted playing XI of India for match 28 of the ICC World Cup 2019 against Afghanistan at the Rose Bowl in Southampton:
