Hi, dear member please post first character of any country with capital letter. Use one space after full stop and make first character capital according to ISC posting rules. Also first character must be capital to designate any person's name.
According to your question we expect more from our players. Now its upto our bowlers how they handle the situation.

Yes, they played well considering condition and pitch. But, Afghanistan may chase it, if they bat exceptionally well. No, I am not saying Afaghanistan's batsmen will do the job. But I have faith in Indian bowlers, they will help Afghanistan to win.

Afghanistan really played well.i never thought they will restrict india in such low score.but the way bowled and restricted india's batsmen to hit boundaries was unexpected.
only three sixes from indian squad.i have expected some more boundaries from india specially from yuvraj and sehwag.on the other hand kohli is still maintaining his form and managed to get his 50.
but india will win.

Afghanistan are down with 5 wickets.
now india will definitely win this match.well yuvi did fail with his bat but shines with the bowl yuvi took 3 wickets in 3 overs with giving just 11 runs.
current score Afghanistan 80 for 5 in 13 overs.

Afganistan started up pretty well,but now are in the condition of loosing the match,or we can say they nearly lost it. Yuvraj singh couldn't do much with the bat,but shines with the ball.Took 3 in 4 overs giving 24 runs and economy of 6.Pathan,Balaji andAshwin took 1 each.At present,Afganistan are 119/6 (16.4)

I think Afghanistan team plays very well, their bowling was very good but due to bad fielding of Afghanistan team India got the 159 runs in 20 overs, if the various simple catches not dropped by the players of Afghanistan team then our total might be around 120 runs. Once again Virat Kohli plays well for India and makes 50 runs, some good contribution given by the Suresh Raina and Dhoni also.I think the Afghanistan team need to learn more for this they need to play more and more international matches, never the less Afghanistan team plays well it does not matter who win or who lose, its game.

Appreciation to Afghan team who made their presence felt in their first match with India and that was a wonderful performance which had testing times for our players. Hope this team will be a nightmare soon to other teams too.

Yeah it was a shocking response by India in this world cup's first match against the weak team of Afghanistan. But I think at last our team played. Expected more from sehwag and yuvraj in batting.
Rest team played well.
Zaheer khan need to improve his bowling.

India started off their T20 world cup's journey by an uneasy win over Afghanistan by 23 runs. Although we won but it wasn't for sure a convincing victory. Its nice to see new teams like Afghanistan making a match against stronger teams like India. But this match arose few questions. Are we prepared for bigger teams?
Because the match which was supposed to have gone in India's way didn't go exactly what we would have expected. A target of 160 was not enough considering the strong batting lineup of Indian team. Moreover our batsmen failed to capitalize the slog overs and it resulted in 10 to 20 runs short of the expected score.

No one would have expected Afghanistan to play that way. They really put in a tough fight and I was really impressed by the way they played. Congrats to the Indian Cricket team, but Team Afghanistan playing the way they did is only making cricket even more interesting! :)

I think that was something near to a close encounter. They really did well to give a tough challenge to restrict our nation to just 159. They had a good bowling attack and if they were sharp at fielding they could have restricted India to a lower score. They left few chances where the batsmen could have been caught and this changed the game. I think it is high time our country should get alert and not judge the teams on their standings and try to focus more to get the world cup. I think the Afghanistan batsmen too did a nice job by hitting some huge hits of the great bowlers of Zaheer, Irfan and Balaji. This shows their capacity and I think they can surely make a comeback soon in this world cup or the other events coming soon.
