I'm thinking the same thing... would be nice. It would be funny for them lose to a "weaker' team again in a WC match.

I think Afghanistan will put up a good fight...but India will make their way out considering all the players' experience...perhaps Zimabwe could beat them if they were in this group

india wins the toss and decides to field

al-Sagar
May 1, 2010, 08:13 AM
Toss: The coin nearly settles on the other pitch. Dhoni has won the toss and India will bowl first. The four Indians left out of the XI are Rohit Sharma, Vinay Kumar, Piyush Chawla and Dinesh Karthik. Dhoni said there was some moisture on the track. The teams will be updated shortly. India will be up against a team they have no clue about. Not quite the same for the other side though. They're playing against their idols.

the afghans look like a hard hitting team..they go all out but their technique is extremely poor which is expected..I think in the near future they can be a test team but people saying it will take a shorter time 4 them, you guys might be right but I think you guys are wrong..their country is war torn and just a mess..how will they keep on going with funding 4 cricket? Don't you think they can turn out to be another Kenya? Kenya was a talented team and went 2 the semi finals 1 world cup and look where they are now..They look like they have a lot of talent but their gonna need good academies placed in and also a decent domestic infrastructure.;.

well they did chase down 494, even if its against Ireland, chasing 400+ is no joke. so they do have some cricket in them but you are right they do need a lot of work on their techniques. well this is our first time watching them play, so I think next time we them play again say like next world T20, then we'll be able to tell how fast they are capable of improving. as for funding, it will be really tough. Specially with ICC only interested in investing big money in U.S.A. is not fair to the rest of the world, but it is what it is. they have to show improvement even with these difficulties, and keep their hopes up.

C.info--
So Afghanistan's innings was basically about one solid stand of 68 between Noor and Stanikzai. Too bad the others didn't quite match up to that quality. They lost many wickets in the eagerness to play the big shots. They will improve as they play more games. The short ball worked for India.

India should not be troubled too much by this score. Afghanistan will field like tigers, that's assured.

hey don't steal our title haha
