With a win against Afghanistan at the Rose Bowl in Southampton, India will join an elite group of teams that have won 50 or more World Cup matches.
If Virat Kohli and co. go on to defeat the Afghans, they will become only the third side behind five-time champions Australia and their trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand to reach the mark. Australia have won 67 matches so far while New Zealand have won 52 matches in the tournament's history.
