India gets benefits in World T20 group stage

India, with Bangladesh & Ireland are in group B of the World T20 tournament which is starting from June 5th in England. India has a pretty easy group as they have two ‘weak’ teams of world cricket – Bangladesh & Ireland & they should enter the 2nd round pretty easily. On the contrary, the situation of other groups is not that simple. These are the groups in the upcoming World T20 cricket world cup:

• Group A: India, Bangladesh & Ireland
• Group B: England, Netherlands & Pakistan
• Group C: Sri Lanka, Australia & West Indies
• Group D: New Zealand, South Africa & Scotland

You should expect some surprises especially in Group C. Certainly WI will have to face the pressure as both the other teams are in good form. Though Australia have looked scratchy in the past 6 months, they came strongly against the Pakistanis in the recently concluded Abu Dhabhi Series.

We have to wait for a while to see some interesting T20 cricket between the world cricketing teams.
