Cricket News sort by Afghanistan Vs India 3rd Match, Group A at Colombo - Sep 19, 2012

Afghanistan went down by 23 runs in their Group A Match against India but the minnows impressed the cricketing world with their raw talent.

Virat Kohli was the Man of the Match in yesterday’s Group A Match between India and Afghanistan at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. India were stretched quite hard by the minnows in a 23-run victory.

In the end, there was no upset, and India got home without too much trouble. The same though cannot be said of the entire match between India and Afghanistan.

Afghanistan went down fighting by 23 runs in their Group A match against India at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. The underdogs were always in the contest until the end of the 17th when their best batsman Mohammad Nabi holed out to long off thanks to the clever R Ashwin.

One of the major criticisms of the 50-over World Cup is that there are too many meaningless matches, with the minnows participating getting thrashed by the top teams.
