Only one winner in this Cricket World Cup clash between the impressive India and Afghanistan on Saturday. With the West Indies and then England to follow, Virat Kohli will be looking to continue that winning momentum, so expect another comprehensive victory by one of the tournament favourites. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game while we bring you the value with our selection of enhanced odds available in our FanBoosts section.
India Setting The Standards
India look the real deal after putting their great rivals Pakistan to the sword last time out. Along with England, they are setting the standard at this World Cup, and after the hosts steamrolled Afghanistan on Tuesday, it should be a comfortable afternoon for Virat Kohli’s men.
The fact they’re 1.01 in the outright tells you all you need to know, but 1.41 for the highest opening partnership is backable and appears a banker.
Rohit Sharma is in terrific touch having plundered 319 runs in just three innings, and although they were dealt a blow with Shikha Dhawan being ruled out for the tournament, KL Rahul seems perfectly comfortable at the top of the order – scoring 57 against Pakistan.
India v Afghanistan Betting Tips
Afghanistan’s appearance at this World Cup was meant to be a momentous occasion but things haven’t gone according to plan.
The 247 they scored off 50 overs in reply to England’s 397 was the first time they’ve completed the full compliment of overs, and now there have been off field issues and arguments between the board and the coaching staff.
In their last two matches, Imran Tahir picked up four wickets against them and Adil Rashid got three, so we’ll stick to an Indian spinner to do the damage.
Yuz Chala leads Kuldeep Yadav six wickets to three, but the latter looked to have rediscovered his mojo last time out, with a particularly good ball to get rid of Babar Azam, so is our pick in the top Indian bowler market.
