Vijay Shankar who had replaced Dhawan in the side against Pakistan had suffered a slight niggle in the practice session.

According to the Cricbuzz report, he is now fit and will appear in this match. Bhuvaneswar Kumar had injured himself during Pakistan's clash and he is expected to sit out of this match. Mohammad Shami, who has been waiting in the sidelines, will finally get an opportunity to make a comeback into the side. Other than that, no further changes can be expected in the XI.

A good pitch and clear weather await the Asian teams

Afghanistan did lose the match England by 150 runs, but one positive for them was the fact that they could manage to bat the whole quota of 50 overs for the first time in this tournament.

Having said, Afghanistan may not change their batting unit but they could bring one pacer in place of Rashid Khan or Mujeeb Ur Rehman.

Southampton could present a lively wicket with some bounce on it. The pitch might offer some swing early on but it will be flat for most of the day. The team winning the toss is likely to bowl first as the hint of swing in the morning could be difficult for the batsmen. No rain is expected, which is a piece of good news.
