ICC World T20 Sri Lanka 2012 updates

Now its less that a month for the T20 world to start and nearby all the participating teams has announced there teams. Its no surprise that many of the teams has given preference to young and uncapped players ahead of the some experienced and mature players.  Twenty twenty is one such format where you have to choose a team very carefully as you need a team that sprints not only while fielding but very quick in running between the wickets as well. The more young the player better he fits the team unless you are some extraordinary talent like J. Kallis, D. Vettory etc or if you have some extraordinary performances in the domestic T20 leagues like IPL, BBL, SLPL etc. E.g. L. Balaji of India was picked for the T20 team for his great performance in the IPL for Kolkata Knight Riders team who won this year.

Lets given some latest updates related to the ICC T20 world cup to be help in Sri Lanka this September.  Here are the most recent news:

  • Kevin Pietersen  may have missed being selected for the England T2o team but he got selected as the part of TV crew so we might see him doing commentary or post match discussions etc.Please note that KP was player of the tournament last time when England won the T20 world cup. Thus it might be bad for the defending champions to lose a player of his caliber.
  • Sri Lanka cricket team has given opportunity to a teenager named Akila Dananjaya, who still haven;t played any kind of competitive cricket except the ongoing SLPL. Dananjaya was neither the part of U-19 team but his performance in the ongoin T20 tournament in Sri Lanka has earned him confidence of the Sri Lankas captain Mahela Jayawardene who recommended his name for the list of 30 probables. 
  • There is still no news about injured Kumara Sangakara about being match fit by the time tournament starts. No doubt he will be in the team if he is fit. 
  • D. Bravo and A. Russel make their comeback in the T20 team for West Indies. Most important thing for the West Indies squad is that they have the T2o super star, C. Galye back in the team after a long gap. He along can take the tgeam to victory as we have seen in many of his performances in the IPL, BBL  etc.
