biis Over baadIndia play their first ever Twenty20 International cricket match today. In their history, India have never ever won the first matches they played in the two previous forms of international cricket.
Incidentally, India will become the last Test playing nation to go "Twenty20" - a mixture of apathy and snootiness has played its part in not being up wth the times. So given all this history and the current state of affairs and South Africa's 100% record in this tiniest of forms, it'll be a surprise if India beat form and fortune.
(update: which they did.)
