T20 World Cup 2024: Match 43, IND vs AFG Match Prediction – Who will win today’s T20 WC match between IND vs AFG?

IND vs AFG Match Prediction

Afghanistan is set to face India in the Super 8 stage at the T20 World Cup 2024. Group 1’s matches begin on Thursday, June 20, where the match between Afghanistan and India marks the start of the tournament’s second phase in the Super 8 of the T20 World Cup at  Kensington Oval in Barbados.

Despite winning three out of their last four matches, the two teams’ group standing is quite different.

India topped Group A benefitting from their final league match against Canada being abandoned due to bad weather.

On the contrary, Afghanistan finished 2nd in Group C after a heavy 104-run loss by the co-hosts West Indies.

In Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is), India has a strong record in Afghanistan, having won six out of 8 matches, one match ended in a tie, and another produced no outcome.

In their most recent encounter, the decisive game of the bilateral series was fascinating because it took two super over to determine the victor. 

Afghanistan’s impressive form suggests a closely contested match. Afghanistan is in a better position because of its experienced spinners and ability to perform well under duress, but India’s potent pace attack, spearheaded by Arshdeep Singh and Jasprit Bumrah, presents a serious obstacle for Afghanistan’s openers.

IND vs AFG pitch report:

The Kensington Oval has produced varied batting outcomes in its five World Cup matches. For instance, Oman vs Namibia saw both teams bowled out at 109 and 109 for 6, respectively. But in the rain-affected match against England, Scotland managed 90 for 0 in 10 overs. Against Oman, no team has been able to surpass Australia’s  164-5. The forthcoming game will take place on a new pitch, reputed to be the best on the square, although unpredictable weather could add challenge for both teams.
