ODI World Cup 2023: India vs Afghanistan; The dilemma of Ravichandran Ashwin's place in India's Playing XI
In the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023, India encounters a critical decision regarding the talented bowler Ravichandran Ashwin as they prepare to take on Afghanistan.
Ravichandran Ashwin, who displayed an impressive performance against Australia, may find himself making way for an additional pacer in the bowling attack as India prepares to face Afghanistan in their second match of the World Cup 2023 on Wednesday. In their previous outing, India overcame a shaky start to chase down 200 runs and secure a six-wicket victory over Australia. Key contributions from KL Rahul and Virat Kohli, who both notched up half-centuries, guided India to success against Australia. In contrast, Afghanistan suffered a comprehensive defeat in their opening game against Bangladesh.
