The ICC WORLD CUP 2019 28th match will be played between India and Afghanistan at the Rose Bowl, Southampton.
Afghanistan has lost all five matches against Australia, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, South Africa, and England. Only one or two defeat was expected from Afghanistan before the tournament started but, they have failed to perform and is on 10th position in the Points Table.
India, on the other hand, has been undefeated so far. India has won three matches against South Africa, Australia, and Pakistan and one match against New Zealand was abandoned due to rain. With this confidence and performance, India should win this match easily.
After back to back five defeats, will Afghanistan be able to win the match against India?
