T20 World Cup, IND Vs AFG: Rahul Dravid Says India Won't Take Afghanistan Lightly

"We feel, we are ready and rested. We feel we are prepared. Afghanistan are a dangerous team in this format. They have shown with their performances in this World Cup.

They are well-travelled cricketers, especially in the T20 circuit. A lot of them are very prominent members in their IPL teams and other teams.

"Certainly, in this format, they are not a team that should be taken lighltly and they are deservedly in the Super 8s. We will not treat them any differently as we would treat any other team we expect to play in the Super 8s," he added.
