Survival at stake as India take on Pakistan in ICC World T20

Kolkata: Jolted by the shock loss to New Zealand in the opening game, India will be fighting a survival battle quite early in the tournament when they take on arch foes Pakistan in what is being seen as the marquee clash of the ICC World Twenty20 here.

The hosts, who started clear title-favourites, were in for a blow in the first match itself when New Zealand's spinners bamboozled their famed batting line-up on a turning Nagpur track.

As a result, the world No. 1 side is staring at an early elimination should it lose to Pakistan in the high-voltage game on Saturday at the Eden Gardens.

Ranchi, Mar 17 : Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be required to pay one-time tax along with penalty after his sports vehicle 'Hummer H2' was 'mistakenly' registered as Scorpio by the transport department in 2009, said the district transport officer of Ranchi.

Nagpur, Mar 16 : Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has cited lack of application and partnerships as the reasons behind his side's shocking 47-run loss to a spirited New Zealand in the opening group match of the World Twenty20 in Nagpur.

Chasing a modest target of 126, Indian batsmen failed collectively as a unit against New Zealand's spinners and were bundled out for just 79 runs in 18.1 overs, their lowest ever T20 score on home soil.

The 25-year-old said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni's side had prepared well for the tournament by playing a lot of T20 games, Sport24 reported.

But India's limited-overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni doesn't want to take things for granted given the format's fickle nature.
