T20 WC Match 3: India Overcomes Afghanistan Scare

Playing the second T20 against India, Afghanistan almost created the first upset of the tournament but the Indian spinners let normalcy prevail and won the close match for India by 23 runs. Afghani batsmen did raise a scare, specially Nabi with his powerful hitting but Ashwin, Yuvraj and Balaji prevented any big partnership.
