Southafrica is also having chances of taking the T 20 cup!
they are a strong team because most of the southafrican players performed well during the recent IPL matches! so they are in form!

who voted for England and Netherlands?
England just lost to Netherlands in the first match, so Netherlands actually have a better chance of winning the cup!
England's hopes could be over in just 2 days
They had chance to get a wicket in 5 of the last 6 balls, Stuart broad and co messed up each of those chances!

I voted for SA by the way, they have decent team and most of them are doing well. India shouldn't face any problems in reaching semis, but will have a tough time in defending the cup.
My semi final lineup:
SA, IND, NZ, AUS

England invented most of the sports in the world and today they are poor at almost all of them.

seems like the hosts have been almost knocked out of the T20. But I would still love it if the Dutch beat the Pakis and then England beats the Pakis too. Maybe we can see Broad and Yuvi against each other again

Who liked Dhoni's press conference?

Arrogance of the right kind.

What an egg on the face of the media. Enjoyed every bit of it.

Aussies getting mauled by the Windies. Never expected that!

Im loving the mauling the Windies are inflicting on the Aussies. This opens up the group and a possible elimination for the Aussies in this round itself.

And if England loose to Pakistan tomorrow and the SL team beats the Aussies - both the English and the Aussies can start preparing for the Ashes. hahahaha

Ideally India should win. If not the 2nd best would be any of the other Asian Teams. 3rd choice would be anyone other than Australia & England.

The Gambir - Dhoni partnership have got to have played the most boring partnership of all time. No effort to get some big overs in.

Good job Yuvraj is having a field day and Gambhir is finally out...good riddance.

google justin tv should be a stream on there.

India : 180/5 (20)

Gambhir and Dhoni slowed things down a bit too much. They will not retain the 20:20 WC with batting like that.

The way things are going on i dont think India will retain the cup it won last time.
Dhoni seems to be out of senses these days and the way he has been promoting himself ahead of inform Raina,Yuvi and Yusuf lately, things are not looking good for India.
By doing so he has also wasted inform Raina and hard hitter Yusuf.26 out of 21 is outdated in one-day matches these days especially at the top.

India do well if both Dhoni and Rohit (for he is great finisher) bat lower down with Raina followed by Yuvi and Yusuf being floatter.

Excellent Spell there by Ojha. 4-0-20-4.

Almost turned the game which was looking to be shifting towards Bangladesh with the initial flying start.
