The 8th T20 World Cup in Australia has already seen a number of upsets as the West Indies lost to Scotland after Sri Lanka lost to Namibia. Both teams won his second match, but it remains to be seen which team will advance to the Super 12 if they lose their last match to Sri Lanka and if Namibia beats the United Arab Emirates as the Netherlands did. I do not understand. The net run rate is lower than in Namibia and Sri Lanka.
Similarly, Group B is wide open with each team winning a game and the final day of this group is a virtual penalty shootout. The West Indies v Ireland winner and Scotland-Zimbabwe winner in Hobart go straight to the Super 12. That’s what makes this exciting four-day World Championship great, and who knows what’s in store for him when the Super 12 kicks off on Saturday, October 22nd.
There were also unpleasant surprises from the two top teams, India and Pakistan, just before their match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on October 23rd. It’s a real shame that politics is involved in a game that is so popular in both countries. Rather, we should use these opportunities to build bridges and spread the message of peace, not walls.
