Malinga Vs Gayle in T20 World cup final today

Its just few hours left and we'll see the final of ICC T20 World cup final today. The match will be played between Sri Lanka and West Indies at Colombo. The scheduled time of the start of the play is 17:30 local (+5:30 GMT). Sri Lanka team has been consistent in last couple of years but unlucky to win a major tournament despite the fact that sometimes team had payment issues. Team Sri Lanka has played 3 finals so far and lost all of them. Two of those finals were in the ICC Cricket world cup tournament of 2007 and 2011 which they lost to Australia and India respectively. The other was the last year T20 final which they lost to England. I am sure Sri Lankan team will not leave any stone upturned to win the finals this time. 

If we consider the West Indies team they haven't won any major tournament in last decade I guess. Thus West Indies team has to fight for their lost pride which they have when they won the first two world cup tournament of 1975 and 1979. 

One interesting thing to watch would be the battle between Lasith Malinga and Chirs Gayle. Both the players are potential match winners who can win matches for their team of their own. 

Let wait and see whats on  the cards for both the teams but definitely we'll have only one champion and it'll take only 2-3 hours for us to see the new T20 champion today. 

Best Wishes to both the teams from http://icccricket.blogspot.com 

India South Africa match Today - Live Updates

South Africa is out of the ICC Twenty 20 world cup tournament and they only can play now to leave the tournament with a victory. With that said chances for qualification for India has been become very difficult, not only India need to win this match but they need to make sure that match is won by the margin of 31 runs or more. Only then Indian cricket team will have net run rate greater than that of Pakistan. 

Match is being played and so far its a bad start for team India they have lost the top three batsmen withou making any significant contribution to the scoreboard or giving a fast start. India is 38/3 after 6.3 overs. I believe that India can only qualify if they make a score of 180 plus which so far looks a rare dream to achieve. But may be today is the day the storng Indian batting like can show the prowess.

Let keep finger crossed and wait for  whats their on the cards for both teams today.

Can Pakistan defend 149 runs

Pakistan team has scored 149 runs in the given 20 overs. Now they need to stop Australian batsmen to achieve the target of 150, failing to do so means this will be the last match of Pakistan in the ICC T20 world cup 2012. However little hope might be there given that South Africa beat India and then the net run rate comes into the criteria to decide which team qualifies for the semi finals. Even Pakistan may need to win this match significantly by a large margin as there might be a condition where India also wins the match against South Africa and then the team with higher runs rate among India and Pakistan will qualify.

Let wait and watch how the match proceeds but in my opinion the first 6 overs would be sufficient to decide the fate of the twenty twenty match being today between Pakistan and Australia. In the next few minutes Australian innings will starts so just have a quick break and get tuned to the match score once again.

Pakistan recover from a poor start

Except Australia all the three team in this Group of Super 8 has to play the most important match for the tournament today. A defeat for any one of India, Pakistan and South Africa will mean exit way from the tournament.

Please note that any one team from the above three will qualify for the semi-finals of ICC T20 world cup 2012. Australia, Sri Lanka and West Indies are the team that have already qualified for the semi finals.

T20 Match between Australia and Pakistan Today:

Considering that this is an important match for Pakistan and they need to win this match at any cost to make it to the semi finals. The Pakistan team made a slow but the team can hope of a quick recovery as they don't have lost much wickets as they did in previous match against India. So far 13 overs has been bowled with Pakistan scoring 89 runs for the loss of 2 wickets. If they can manage to take the score to above 160 runs they'll have a chance to win the match. Thought the Pakistani team bowler will have to do the tough tasks for stooping the likes to  David Warner and Shane Waston and keep them from scoring boundaries, which they have been doing easily so far in the twenty twenty world cup tournament. 

Please keep checking the live scoreboard online or watch the match from your TV sets. I'll keep posting updates regularly.  Match between India and South Africa will follow soon after this match and that would be an interesting one to watch.
