Afghanistan skipper Mohammad Nabi won the toss and opted to field against India in their last Asia Cup Super 4 match on Thursday, at Dubai International Stadium.
In today's match, Rohit Sharma has been rested and KL Rahul will be leading Team India.
Both the teams will be playing for respect as they lost their respective chances of making it into the final of the tournament, which is to be played on Sunday.
India and Afghanistan lost their first two Super 4 matches against Pakistan and Sri Lanka, and will look to register a win before bowing out.
It will be interesting to see whether the Rohit Sharma-led side would make any changes to their Playing XI or not.
India's Playing XI: KL Rahul(c), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant(w), Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Deepak Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh.
Afghanistan's Playing XI: Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz(w), Ibrahim Zadran, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi(c), Karim Janat, Rashid Khan, Azmatullah Omarzai, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fareed Ahmad Malik, Fazalhaq Farooqi.
