10.50 pm - India defeat Afghanistan by 23 runs
Balaji knocked over last man, Shapoor Zadran's stumps and India sealed the match by 23 runs. Even though it's victory for India, their performance in this game will give the Indian fans sleepless nights ahead of their next big clash against England on Sunday. Afghanistan played like bravehearts. They gave India plenty of scare in both the innings. Their bowlers took early wickets and put India under the gun, later their batsmen set about the chase in an attacking fashion.
India was served well by Yuvraj Singh who picked up three wickets with his left-arm slow bowling. But it was Balaji who drew first blood for India, when the attacking Mohammad Shahzad threatened to take the game away. Balaji too ended with 3 wickets.
