Cricket World Cup Clash: India vs Afghanistan Head to Head Analysis

India Secures Hard-Fought 11-Run Victory Over Afghanistan at the 2019 Cricket World Cup

In a tense encounter, India managed to clinch an 11-run victory against Afghanistan during the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. India struggled to post a total of 224 runs in their 50 overs, with notable contributions from Virat Kohli and Kedar Jadhav, both scoring half-centuries. The sluggish wicket at the Rose Bowl favored Afghanistan’s spinners, making it challenging for the Indian batsmen to score freely.

Afghanistan, in response, saw six of their top seven batsmen reach double-digit scores, but none were able to carry on and finish the game. The Indian bowling attack struck at regular intervals, preventing the game from slipping away. With 16 runs needed to win off the final over, Mohammed Shami conceded a boundary off the first ball to Mohammad Nabi. However, Shami bounced back spectacularly, claiming a hat-trick to seal the victory for India.
