India are all set to play their fifth match in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 against Afghanistan- at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. Virat Kohli and his men, who are yet to lose a single game, will hope to continue with their unbeatable winning strategy in the ongoing World Cup when they take on Gulbadin Naib's side. Meanwhile, Afghanistan who got thrashed by England in their previous encounter will aim for a much-improved performance and earn their first points in the showpiece event.
The weather forecast for the upcoming clash between India and Afghanistan is predicted to be clear with plenty of sunshine. In the morning, the weather will remain sunny. However as the day progresses, the weather is expected to turn cloudy. So even though the weather might get cold, they are no chances of rain as such.
Since Southampton is one of the biggest grounds in England, the fitness of the player will play an important role in the upcoming match. Moreover, with plenty of space available, the pitch will help spinners to bowl freely and take wickets.
Scheduled at Rose Bowl cricket ground, the venue was first established in 2001 with a capacity of 6,500 people. However it can accommodate up to 20,000 people with temporary seating.
