ICC World T20

It's been a hectic week for me. That is why there were no updates from my side on the ICC World T20.

Well the tournament has been great one so far. Champions (ODI & T20) are being knocked out of the world cup. Even the hosts & quickly emerging Bangladeshis are also out of this world cup. Players are being replaced, Karthik replaced with Sehwag, Razzaq replaced with Arafat. Now Razzaq was coming back into the team after a gap of two long years. He was busy with ICL, but gave up for the National duty.

Just a quick update on the results so far:

England v Netherlands - Netherlands thumped England
New Zealand v Scotland - Clinical win for New Zealand
Australia v West Indies - Gayle oops....West Indies defeated Australia
Bangladesh v India - India won easily
Scotland v South Africa - the biggest win of the tournament by the Proteas
England v Pakistan - England defeated Pakistan & kept their hopes alive of making it to Super Eight
Bangladesh v Ireland - Ireland defeated yet another Asian nation

New Zealand v Pakistan - Umar Gul took 5 wickets in a T20 & crushed New Zealand
Ireland v Sri Lanka - Ireland made the lankans struggle for victory but the Lankans pulled things back
England v India - England defeated India & stop their campaign of defending the title
Ireland v Pakistan - Pakistan too good for Ireland (history didn't repeated)
England v West Indies - Now West Indies defeated England after a humiliating summer & knocked England out of the World Cup T20
New Zealand v Sri Lanka - The 'M' factor came to party as New Zealand was thrown out of the world cup
