India vs Afghanistan Weather Report

After a successful opening match against Australia in the ODI World Cup 2023, Team India is preparing for their upcoming game against Afghanistan at Delhi's Arun Jaitley Stadium on October 11. In the previous match, India faced early challenges against Australia's new-ball pacers, with three top-order batsmen, including captain Rohit Sharma, departing for ducks. Despite this setback, India mounted a comeback, thanks to a resilient partnership between Virat Kohli and KL Rahul. Kohli contributed 85 runs before getting dismissed, while Rahul remained unbeaten with 97 runs, steering India to a six-wicket victory.

Afghanistan, in contrast, had a disappointing start to the World Cup, losing their opening match to Bangladesh by 6 wickets. The Afghan batting lineup struggled, with opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz being the sole standout performer, scoring 47 runs. Setting a target of 157 runs, Afghanistan couldn't defend it as Bangladesh comfortably chased it down. As India faces Afghanistan in their next encounter, the focus will be on India's top order addressing vulnerabilities against the new ball, and Afghanistan aiming to rectify their batting woes for a competitive match in the ODI World Cup.

For the Men's Cricket World Cup 2023 match between India and Afghanistan at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi on October 11, the weather forecast indicates no rain between 10:30 am and 11:30 pm. The day is expected to be hot and humid, with temperatures ranging from 22 to 35 degrees Celsius and humidity levels between 47-55 percent. Wind speed is predicted to be around 8-13 km/h throughout the 50-over clash. According to weather.com, the partly cloudy conditions suggest a dry and uninterrupted game, alleviating concerns of rain impacting the ODI World Cup encounter.

ODI World Cup 2023: India vs Afghanistan Pitch Report

The Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi is anticipated to favor spinners due to its characteristic dry surface. Although conducive to bowlers, the venue has witnessed numerous high-scoring contests, thanks to its compact boundaries. In a prior World Cup match in Delhi, South Africa amassed a formidable 428 runs against Sri Lanka. The pitch conditions are expected to persist for the India-Afghanistan encounter, raising expectations for a potentially high-scoring battle between these Asian teams.

If the condition suits or replicates the previous game that was played on this track then it will be a cracker of game with runs pouring down.
