What's ur pic?

It's been scorching hot here in India but chilly mornings, afternoons & evenings in England where the World T20 is going to start from Friday June 5. For now teams are playing practice games & we are having fascinating results. Both the finalists of last world cup lost their practice games against their opponents. India lost against New Zealand & Pakistan lost against South Africa.

Interestingly India haven't won a single T20 game against New Zealand. Kiwis were the only team to defeat India in the last world cup, then they defeated India 2-0 in their own backyard earlier this year & now they defeated them last night. I agree it was a practice game but a win is a win. Still, it wasn't a one-sided game & players like Suresh Raina & Rohit Sharma along with Ravinder Jadeja played superbly but it was James Franklin's three massive sixes & 27 runs in 10 balls ensured New Zealand keep their record clean against India.

The results for warm up games so far are as follows:

• May 26 - Bangladesh v New Zealand – New Zealand won by 4 wickets
• May 27 - Ireland v New Zealand – New Zealand won by 7 wickets
• May 28 - Scotland v West Indies – West Indies won by 14 runs
• May 28 - Bangladesh v Netherlands – Bangladesh won by 64 runs
• May 29 - Bangladesh v Scotland – Bangladesh won by 6 wickets
• May 30 - Ireland v West Indies – West Indies won by 5 wickets
• May 30 - Netherlands v New Zealand - New Zealand won by 90 runs
• June 1 - Australia v Bangladesh – Australia won by 38 runs
• June 1 - Ireland v Netherlands – Match tied (Ireland won in the super over)
• June 1 - India v New Zealand – New Zealand won by 9 runs
• June 1 – Pakistan v South Africa – South Africa won by 59 runs
