preferred the old format India have never lost a game in the first stage of the world cup from 2007-2012. Thats 8 games India have won and (one tie with a bowl out victory) India also have never lost a semi or a final. Its the super middle stages we have a **** record. Knowing the sort of person MSD and his teams are. We get to the knockouts we are winning that cup

WT20 should allow more minnows. If not in world cups then when? ofcourse BCCI is not going to invite Afghan or Ireland for the time being
Yes BCCI is ridiculous to be interested in playing just Aus and Eng, but BCB are more ridiculous of not playing cricket half of the year even though Ire and Afg repeatedly offer them to play. Even though they have improved in recent years like this NZ series still I am very surprised why they have a hesitation to play these teams. These tournament can give them a morale boost, shut the world and some extra income for the board.

^ i doubt they will get the extra income. One thing which became painfully clear to me during the Lorgat saga was some teams like Zim, Bang and SL the boards who receive these teams incur a small loss. Thats probably why Bd have been hesitatant. It is my understanding the the board who is hosting pays for the players to stay in 4/5 star hotels. So thats like 20 people staying in 5 star hotels etc for a month. You also have to take care of the airfare. Your easily talking about $300-$400k. In return Afghanistan and Ireland for eg dont have the TV revenues to compensate. With india for example, when we tour SA, the biggest source of income for CSA is from India based broadcasters. Then Willow TV showing the series on the comp to expats in North America and mainland europe. Then local broadcaster supersport.

Took take associate nations for granted. They will do good to pip zim and even may be ireland in twent20 qualifying tournament before super 10. It's perfect format to have more teams in world ucp and ICC is doing pretty good with this idea of introducing more teams in twenty20 world cup. Only thing I don't like is the pre tournament for them to qualify for super 10. They should have made a format like world cup of 2 groups with all 6 associate teams split twith other top teams instead of un wanted qualifying tournament. The format is just 20 over game, you can't have very one sided games if you include them.

BD doesn't want to play Ire and Zim because if they lose there will just be more questions. Congrats to them improving to be able to draw with the Kiwis at home regularly I guess. Hey BD, no flatties plox.

Why do we always end up having a warm up vs the Lankans.. our players might as well just play EA Cricket
Dont underestimate EA cricket. I played it and now Im better at playing cricket than i was ever before. Teaches you a lot of handy lessons.

Group A is stuck is Chittagong, where there is massive turn! Dont be Surprised if South Africa or England gets knocked out from the 1st round. Group B is stuck in Mirpur where its a batting and pace paradise so again the current Champs, Windies and team unpredictable, Pakistan will struggle with their not their not the best/unreliable batting line up. But all in all, i expect exiting and intense contest right from the qualifying round to the final match. Again, DONT and I mean DONT be surprised if something out of this world happens in this World Cup. :D ;)

I have a feeling this could be the best T20 world cup there might be bias but lets be honest, would you rather have a match in front of 25000 screaming with every boundary or wicket unless the home team plays. I expect the Indian and Pakistan matches to be packed

Yeah I think the best performing WT20 Qualifier should be a shoe in for the World Cup like automatic selection then let the others fight for like two places in the World Cup with their own matches. I would like to see it outside the Sub-continent but that's where the money is with T20.

T20 Is not a good indicator at all Judging by Indias performance in the last 3 world T20s india are an ordinary side but in reality they are the best or 2nd best team in ODIs. As for tests they are in the top 4 which is pretty respectable. Afghans are good t20 player because their team I'd full of sloggers. As of now I think they can beat us Bangladesh on neutral venues but that won't mean that overall we are bad. World t20 however is a good place for weak teams to compete against top teams because thus format is that sort of a gamble. The tournament should be more for entertainment so it does not hurt to see minnows. There is test championship and CT for a reason. A worldcup should be a world cup. its sole purpose is not only to decide the best team in the world. Some teams have personal goals especially if they are nit among the favourites. Bangladesh fans know that we wont win but yet we follow the world cups with passion.

^in one edition of the WC he came it at 3 with disastrous consequences. I am more than happy with the Indian batting line up. Play the same line up as they do in the ODIs. Rohit Dhawan Kohli Raina (provided a typical sub pitch) Yuvi MSD Irfan Pathan / Rishi Dhawan (whoever is in form) Sir Nadeem Bhuvi Shami Rest of Squad. Ashwin (back up spinner), Rahane (back up opener), Samson (back up keeper and middle order bat) That will be my blue print in terms of players in a 15 man squad. Obviously i doubt MSD is going to pick try Nadeem so realistically we are looking at the same team for ODIs and T20s.

I think youngsters like Samson should be slotted in for T20s. India don't have a quality opener than dhawan. I have no faith in Rohit and rahane has struggled. Will be good to see new faces than having to see moorali again and again

People want to drop Dhoni in T20s? :phehehe: He is the world's most dangerous batsman in the format along with the likes of Gayle, ABDV etc
hes strangely not as explosive in T20Is as he is in IPL.takes time to settle down imo. Also hes senior now and should look to extend his career in other formats

Hope its not south Africa. They would prepare bowling pitches for India 's matches since India has cancelled SA tour.
SA prepared such a bowling pitch in T20 2007 Worldcup for its match against India. RP Singh ripped them off and they failed to qualify. Giving India a green pitch is like giving our bowlers steroids. Indian batsmen will score less than normal...but bowlers suddenly become Hulk :))

Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal recalled for World T20

Pakistan have recalled wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal and former captain Shoaib Malik in their squad for the World Twenty20, which starts in Bangladesh in March. Malik last played a T20 for Pakistan in November 2013 against South Africa in the UAE but was dropped for the series against Sri Lanka. Akmal, meanwhile, has not been a part of Pakistan's T20 playing XI since March last year. Pacer Mohammad Irfan has been left out of the squads for the Asia Cup and World T20, after injuring himself in a domestic game. The fast bowler had suffered a hairline fracture on his hip in early December and was ruled out of the series against Sri Lanka but had returned to competitive cricket recently. However, he aggravated the injury during a match in the ongoing T20 tournament. A medical assessment at the National Cricket Academy showed the bowler was unfit. "Irfan was left out as he fell and was injured again, and he needs some time for recovery," Azhar Khan, the interim chief selector said. Asad Shafiq, who has scored just one fifty in his last 11 ODI innings was dropped from the Asia Cup squad in favour of Fawad Alam. Mohammad Talha, who is still uncapped in ODIs and T20s, was named in both squads following his performance in the Sharjah Test against Sri Lanka in January. Pakistan squad for World Twenty20: Mohammad Hafeez (capt), Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Malik, Saeed Ajmal, Umar Gul, Sharjeel Khan, Sohaib Maqsood, Junaid Khan, Bilawal Bhatti, Sohail Tanvir, Umar Akmal, Zulfiqar Babar, Mohammad Talha, Kamran Akmal, Ahmed Shehzad
Malik and Dropmal - They keep recycling :hysterical:

Williamson replaces Ryder for World T20

Kane Williamson has replaced Jesse Ryder, who has been suspended after a drinking incident, in New Zealand's World Twenty20 squad. Anton Devcich, Trent Boult and Ronnie Hira are the other additions to their limited-overs squads over a successful summer. No other changes were made to the side. Wiliamson has played 13 Twenty20 internationals for an average of 23 and a strike rate of 118, but he wasn't part of the Twenty20 squad when New Zealand hosted West Indies. Ryder's off-field issues created a vacancy, and Williamson walked into it. Williamson's part-time spin, and his ability to play spin, played no little part in the selection. "We've had to exclude him [Ryder] from the tour. Character is really important as part of our selection process," Bruce Edgar, the general manager of national selection, said. "As we saw when we toured Bangladesh in October, the pitches will be slow and likely to turn. Consequently we were looking for batsmen who can play spin well as well as some more spin bowling options. "Anton gives us both top- and middle-order batting options as well as spin. He performed well on the tour to Bangladesh and the New Zealand A tour to India and Sri Lanka before that. And Ronnie is an experienced Twenty20 spin bowler. He's an excellent fieldsman, and he had a very good HRV Twenty20 with Canterbury." Fast bowlers Adam Milne and Matt Henry were not available for selection because of injuries. New Zealand squad Brendon McCullum (capt.), Corey Anderson, Martin Guptill, Mitchell McClenaghan, Nathan McCullum, Adam Milne, Colin Munro, Jimmy Neesham, Luke Ronchi (wk), Kane Williamson, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Anton Devcich, Trent Boult, Ronnie Hira

india v pak will be a big match, we need to play our best 11 in all matches. I have no faith in dhoni right now to do that though. Team should be: Dhawan, rahane, kohli, yuvraj, rayudu, dhoni, binny, jadeja, bhuvi, aaron, shami Changes: mishra for binny, need 2 spinners i guess but you already have yuvraj and jadeja. hence only 1 proper spinner Now THATS an @ss kicking team!

Rohit and Raina will surely play ahead of Rahane and Rayudu

Fit-again Abdur Razzak replaces Arafat Sunny

Bangladesh have gone for the tried and tested in their 15-man World Twenty20 squad, as there are no major inclusions or exclusions. Mushfiqur Rahim will lead the best available team with a proper spread of allrounders, as well as specialist batsmen and bowlers. Chief selector Faruque Ahmed has called the inclusion of Sabbir Rahman, who made his debut against Sri Lanka by scoring 26 in the second Twenty20, as an opportunity for someone with potential in this format. Sabbir gets his chance after hitting six T20 fifties in the domestic competition last season. "The Bangladesh team is a blend of experience and youth," Faruque said. "We have considered the fact that this was a world event and experience was necessary as well as giving opportunity to youngsters like Mominul Haque and Sabbir Rahman who have the potential to excel in the shortest format. "Someone like Arafat Sunny, who has impressed everyone and had been performing consistently at domestic level, had to miss out because we needed to have that balance." Sunny misses out because Abdur Razzak, the senior left-arm spinner, has been deemed fit enough to play the tournament after he had suffered a hamstring injury earlier this month. "We have a lot of depth in our bowling. There are three pace bowlers and a seaming all-rounder. However, in our conditions spin will be the main strength and we are well covered in that area with Shakib Al Hasan, Abdur Razzak and Sohag Gazi. "I also believe this is an excellent fielding side and that was evident in the recent Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka." Bangladesh open their World T20 campaign against Afghanistan on March 16, in the first round of the competition. Squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Shamsur Rahman, Shakib Al Hasan, Mominul Haque, Nasir Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Abdur Razzak, Sohag Gazi, Mashrafe Mortaza, Farhad Reza, Rubel Hossain, Al-Amin Hossain.

Sri Lanka have announced a tried-and-tested squad for next month's World Twenty20 in Bangladesh. The only selection resembling something of a surprise was the inclusion of batting allrounder Chaturanga de Silva as a standby in case Rangana Herath doesn't recover in time for the tournament. Chaturanga also features in Sri Lanka's Asia Cup squad, though as a confirmed member and not a back-up. The 15-man squad for the 50-over Asia Cup had only one change from the World Twenty20 side, batsman Ashan Priyanjan taking the place of spinner Seekkuge Prasanna. Sri Lanka would have had an extended taste of Bangladesh conditions before the World Twenty20, arriving in the country in late January for a full series. They won the Test series 1-0, the Twenty20s 2-0 (both victories came off the last ball) and are currently playing the first of three ODIs. The Asia Cup, also in Bangladesh, starts later this month and leads up to the warm-up matches for the World Twenty20. Chaturanga, 24, plays for Moors Sports Club, and has been part of Sri Lanka's A team over the past year. He has put in consistent performances in the ongoing home series against England Lions. He had previously been picked in the national squad for an ODI against South Africa last year. World Twenty20 squad: Dinesh Chandimal (capt), Lasith Malinga (vice-capt), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kusal Perera, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Mahela Jayawardena, Lahiru Thirimanne, Angelo Mathews, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Suranga Lakmal, Rangana Herath / Chaturanga De Silva, Sachithra Senanayake, Ajantha Mendis, Seekuge Prasanna Asia Cup squad: Angelo Mathews (capt), Dinesh Chandimal (vice- capt), Lasith Malinga, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kusal Perera, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Mahela Jayawardena, Lahiru Thirimanne, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Suranga Lakmal, Chaturanga De Silva, Sachithra Senanayake, Ajantha Mendis, Ashan Priyanjan
