Excited about this match. Hope to see Afghanistan giving a good fight to India. Interested to see how India's attack plays out today.

They probably want to bowl 1st since Indians are so good at chasing. So they want to get them out to a decent total and then attack their hapless bowling attack.

Rooting for AFG. I want them to succeed. These players and the AFG people deserves something to cheer for.

He looks like a good bowler. Decent pace. Even we don't have such leftie in our team.

Shapoor Zadran to Gambhir, 1 leg bye, shortish ball, Gambhir goes for the pull, but he's beaten for pace and is struck on the body, the TV says that was 150.3kph, that figure seems a bit exaggerated though

India is very slow in taking runs... everyone seems to start slow now a days. New strategy to handle T20 pressure. Having said that I think 140 is a good score in this pitch.

Afghanistan's bowling has been very impressive but their fielding has been atrocious. If they want to become a better team, they desperately need to be better in their fielding.

14 wides, 3 dropped catches, and 2 misfieldings that cost boundaries, 2 overthrows. But still managed to keep India at 159. Not that bad!

They would be a stronger side given that they stay inside Pakistan, use 100% Pakistani facilities. Once they are in their own country, I doubt if they could continue. I am pretty sure once they are out from Pakistan, they will have Kenya's fate.

That's why the Test match status has to wait on them. They have to first run a proper FC structure and prove they have proper youth programs churning out good cricketers. If they can prove they are self sufficient, then they can think of being a Test playing nation. I'd love for them to become a Test member one day, but I hope they don't get it too early and become like us. I'm sure ICC has learned their lesson and are being conservative.

Ya their bowling attack looks really poor. They'll definitely have problems against the better teams if they have to defend their targets.

Why ZIM failed to improve in test? Just couple players left/retired, and they are completely destroyed. Sure ICC didn't make that mistake when they approved Test status for ZIM.

Well no, they don't, and that is why I never ever supported India not even Pakistan.
AFG fans dont show respect to BD as if they are in top 4 ! If you consider their so called up rising in cricket, you will see most of the game (99.9%) they played against IRE or other associates, no big teams.But still their FANs show no respect to BD.

Again please dont think that even if you were in top 4, you could insult BD.

Brave and spirited effort from Afghanistan. Really like their attitude towards the game even though skill wise they do have a lot to improve on. They look great when the deliveries are pitched up but I hope they can come up with a plan to combat short pitch bowling from England in the next game against Finn and co.

I don't understand why people rate highly of Harsha Bhugol. The man had this annoying condescending chuckle at Afghans where he assumed every moment India would just waltz in to victory. Wtf. I was so hoping Afghanistan would just pull a big last over and give the arrogant Indians a lesson in humility.

don't understand your reaction, I didn't even quote your post,
but I read your post, and the "spirited effort" caught my eyes as did the title in Cricinfo "Spirited Afg lose to spin"
the lafa lafi was regarding Afgan's fielding, they looked very animated & aggressive in the field but failed to do the basics, there were fumbles and 4 dropped catches,which is why I said catch na dhorte parle eto lafa lafi koira labh nai
