India vs Sri Lanka T20 World Cup: Time and Preview

Millions of people in India and across the world will be glued in front of their TV sets later today for the India vs Sri Lanka match in T20 World Cup 2010. The starting time of the match is 13:00 local time (17:00 GMT). According to Indian Standard Time (IST), the match will start at 10:30 PM.
India still has a marginal chance of advancing to the semifinals but it depends on a number of factors. Not only India will have to defeat Sri Lanka by a big margin but also Indian fans will have to pray that Australia defeats West Indies.
There is a strong possibility that Australia will defeat West Indies. However, first, India has to defeat Sri Lanka by 20 runs if they bat first. On the other hand, if Sri Lanka bats first and score around 160 runs that India has to get the runs with 2 overs and 2 balls to spare. So, it is a difficult thing to achieve against a team like Sri Lanka.
The only team who is more or less assured of a place in semifinal from this group F is Australia.
India vs Sri Lanka match will be broadcast live in different TV channels across the world. In India, the viewers can watch the match in ESPN.
Thus, today is the day that India may go out of T20 World Cup 2010.
Indian Squad in this tournament:
Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Virender Sehwag (vice-captain), Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Ravindra Jadeja, Zaheer Khan, Praveen Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Ranganath Vinay Kumar, Dinesh Karthik, Rohit Sharma and Piyush Chawla.
The next match will be between West Indies and Australia and it will start at GMT 21:00 or Local 17:00. 


  1. i pray to god that give a chance to India to get into semifinal

    today India has to defeat srilanka

  2. IPL is burning out the talented Indian team. There needs to be a re-think about how much cricket should be allowed to be played in the IPL matches, which does not adversely affect the team's performance in important international matches.

  3. India was defeat by Sri Lanka due to team bad performance and also lost last two match victory. Indian lost world cup 2010 and that’s not right.
