Afghanistan a dangerous side

India had to play strong teams at the beginning of the championship and has come out with flying colours.

The rest of the road is comparatively easy, but it must not take any chances. Even the best team, for example, hosts England has suffered shock defeats at the hands of weaker teams like Pakistan. However, Afghanistan has not been able to come up to the expectations of its fans.

Non Performance of Afghan spinners

One of the most significant surprises has been the non-performance of its star all-rounder Rashid Khan who has excelled in the 20-20 format but has been a failure in the ODI format of the game.

One of the causes for his failure has been his inability to read the conditions of England pitches. Most spinners, including Rashid, have been bowling at a faster pace which is not suitable for the fast pitches of England.

Injury Scare

India is also having problems, and its sick bay is swelling with each passing day. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, its frontline pace bowler, is down with an injury.

Shikhar Dhawan is also not fit after fracturing his finger in the match against Australia. The most recent player to be injured is Vijay S who was injured after being hit by a toe cruncher from Jasprit Bumrah during a practice session in the nets.

Weather Forecast

The weatherman has predicted bright and sunny weather. It is a welcome relief since bad weather has been playing spoilsport all through the championship.
