India will be overwhelming favourites against a beleaguered Afghanistan side in their World Cup clash at Southampton.

Led by Virat Kohli has been ticking all the boxes in their World Cup campaign so far. Their next challenge is Afghanistan, a side which has not managed to hit its straps in the tournament. However, they are a dangerous side and cannot be taken lightly.
