India vs Afghanistan World Cup 2023: India and Afghanistan will lock horns in the ninth match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on October 11, 2023. India are the clear favorites for this match, having won their opening match against Australia convincingly. Afghanistan, on the other hand, lost their opening match to Bangladesh, but they will be looking to put up a better performance against India.
Afghanistan are a young and talented team, but they lack experience at the top level. They have a few world-class players, such as Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi, but they need their other players to step up if they want to challenge the top teams in the world.
