The 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup started on Thursday with the first match between England and New Zealand. The 9th match of the tournament is scheduled for Wednesday, October 10th, between India and Afghanistan. This game will take place at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium.
Rohit Sharma, speaking on Sunday, mentioned that India will face its biggest challenges in various situations during the tournament. However, when he said this, he didn’t rule out making changes in team composition based on specific demands. Rohit appeared content with the team’s fielding performance.
Before the game, Afghanistan’s captain, Hashmatullah Shahidi, indicated that they cannot expect to dismiss him easily with their spinners all the time.
Shahidi said in a pre-match press conference held in New Delhi, “Solely depending on spin bowling won’t win us the game; we need to perform well with the bat. Although we scored fewer runs in the last game, we believed we could win.”
