So after the group matches and super 8 in ICC T20 world cup this year the Indian Cricket Fans are dishearten by Indian cricket team performance despite of 1 run win against South Africa and 7 wicket win against their Cricket rival- Pakistan as India are out of the T20 Tournament.On the other hand South Africans who have lost all the matches of super eight, played a role of party spoiler for Indian fans and a hero for Pakistan cricket team specially Fu De Plesis whose name can not even spell completely by all Pakistanis did job for Pakistan by his good knock. Earlier that day Pakistan Cricket team broke the winning momentum of Australia in the T20 tournament. Sambit bal wrote in ESPN Cricket Info: ‘India is the land of milk and honey for Twenty20 cricket. It is the laboratory where international players sharpen their Twenty20 skills. Yet India have failed to reach the final stages of the last three World Twenty20s. Tough questions and tough decisions can’t wait forever.’ Surely this laboratory is not the place where Afridi, Ajmal and Umar Gul the world’s leading wicket takers had sharpen their skills. Yes there is no doubt that many players have learn in India like Gayle, Watson and many others.
This will be the fourth T20 world cup in 6 years and Pakistan team have qualified in all the Semi finals. But despite of being such a world-class T20 team and having brilliant upcoming T20 Players there is no tournament like IPL, SLPL or Big Bash and that is due to attack on Srilankan players in Lahore and since not a single international team except Afghanistan have played any tournament in Pakistan. Pakistan Cricket Board is trying hard to arrange a T20 league but are unable to give a final shape.
Back to this year in T20 world cup the teams for Semi Finals are decided in which one will be an Asian team to reach in to the finals unlike the last year in which Aussies and England were competing. This year England doesn’t show any interest to defend T20 title as they were looking too young to play out in this tournament in the absence of KP and Ian Bell. Aussies are looking favorite once again to reach in to the finals yet if they might get captured in to the spinning web of Sunil Narine or their bowlers get exposed by thunder batting of Gayle. It is also worthy to be noted that after Pakistan, Australia is the second most consistent team in this tournament. Considering about the match between Pakistan and Srilanka, only that team will win which play better on the day as they both knows very well about each other.
Any prediction about the two teams who will reach in to the Finals and the team which will hold the title of T20 champion.
