Team India is still unbeaten at the ICC World Cup 2019 after having played four games. On the other hand, Afghanistan hasn't been able to get a single point this tournament. India has played Afghanistan only twice in ODIs, both times at the Asia Cup.

Out of the two meetings in the 50-over format, India has tasted victory once and the latest match in the 2018 Asia Cup was a memorable tie. The first match came at the 2014 Asia Cup in Bangladesh and India cruised to a pretty comfortable win.

In the second match in Dubai, which was also MS Dhoni's 200th ODI as captain, Afghanistan came from behind to tie the game in style.

The 2019 edition is just Afghanistan's second cricket World Cup ever and it has never faced two-time champion India at the tournament.

Overall, Afghanistan has never beaten India in any format of the game. India leads the head-to-head 1-0 in two ODIs, 1-0 in one test and 2-0 in two T20Is.
