Time – 13:30 GMT, 19:00 IST
May 1, 2010
Venue: Beausejour Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia
India will take on Afghanistan in the third match of ICC T20 World Cup today in Beausejour Stadium. Afghanistan who are the surprised package in this tournament have got huge attention as the country is marred with war and most of its players are born in refugee camps. Though they lack the facilities but the iron will of those players have made the dream come true.
India on the other have are preparing for the unexpected as none of the Afghan player is known in world cricket. Dhoni said, we have seen few videos so as to know the style of batting and bowling. But cricket is the game of uncertainty and India can not take them lightly.
