India vs Afghanistan Live Streaming Star Sports Information - Asia Cup 2014

India vs Afghanistan Live Streaming Star Sports in India

Just before the outcome of Pakistan's match against Bangladesh, India still survives on the slimmest of its chances to qualify to the finals. Bizzare arithmetic calculations still provide a small chance for India to qualify only if Bangladesh win against Pakistan and Srilanka with atleast one bonus point victory followed by India beating Afghanistan with a bonus point and better Net Run Rate than Pakistan and Bangladesh. While this post is being written Bangladesh has posted a 300 plus score against Pakistan and who can predict the result? No one at this juncture. If Pakistan comes up with a win, all India would try against Afghanistan is a win to save its pride before flying back to India. If Bangladesh wins with a bonus point against Pakistan, India will strive hard for a big win against Afghanistan. 

India vs Afghanistan live streaming in India will be available on Star Sports along with live TV telecast also. If not a berth in the finals, a win for India would boost their morale for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2014. In absence of the winning edge in form of MS Dhoni, India looks struggling in this Asia Cup. Although India is struggling to find a place in the finals due to their losses against Pakistan and Srilanka, one positive takeaway for India would be the narrowness of those losses. The match could have swung India's way too. Shall we assume India is lacking the killer instinct in last few months? It seems yes! Otherwise the performance has not been too bad so far in the Asia Cup 2014.

Virat Kohli has done a pretty good job as the captain of this side. His aggression has worked as a catalyst for some good performances. The only failure was good performances not being transformed to wins. That is where we see a lack of killer instinct.

It is good to see some runs flowing from the bats of Rayudu, Rohit Sharma, Dhawan and Rahane. But consistency is the key here. They click not in tandem! If all of them click on a given day, they can be nightmarish to the bowlers. We may expect another big innings from Kohli against Afghanistan.

Amit Mishra added some freshness to the below par Indian bowling line up. Ashwin did a reasonably good job against Pakistan before he termed expensive in the death overs. Sloppy wicket keeping from Karthik came under scanner and hopefully he bounces back against Afghanistan.

India would love to qualify for the finals or atleast fly back home with a big win here. In a short span of time, India will fly back to Bangladesh with a revised squad to play the ICC T20 World Cup 2014. Before that India also plays couple of warm up games against Sri Lanka and England.
