India vs. Afghanistan World Cup Match Top Picks

Here are the best picks for the upcoming India vs. Afghanistan cricket match at the World Cup.
Virat Kohli: Virat has notched 46 ODI hundreds and will look to break Sachin's record for most ODI hundreds this year. Virat's ODI batting average in India is nearly 58.
Mohammad Shami: Mohammad has picked 169 wickets in 95 bowled innings. He has 31 3-wicket hauls and a strike rate of 28.09. Additionally, he has picked 6 wickets in 3 innings against Afghanistan, which includes 4 bowled wickets.
Rohit Sharma: India's captain has a strike rate of 90 and a batting average of 48.14. He will look to play the anchor role and score runs at the top of the order to deliver a steady start.
Jasprit Bumrah: Jasprit's tight opening spell and death overs bowling will be crucial in picking wickets. His lengths and variations can be hard to read. He is expected to pick at least 2 wickets.
Mohammad Nabi: Mohammad has 31 2-wicket hauls in 96 ODI innings. He can also add a few runs in the middle order, with his batting average of 23.92. He had a great performance against India at the last ODI World Cup and will try to take his team over the line this time.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz: Rahmanullah could be your fantasy differential in case he gets going. He recently scored a run-a-ball 151 in an ODI against a fierce Pakistani attack, and a quickfire 145 off just 125 against Bangladesh in July.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman: Mujeeb has picked 80 wickets in just 56 innings in ODIs. 53 of these wickets have been either bowled or LBW, which could increase your chances of extra points. Mujeeb has picked 12 wickets in 9 ODI matches in recent months.
