India & Pakistan play tough opposition today in ICC T20 world cup

Yesterday in the group stage two important games get spoiled due to rain but fortunately we'd results for both the games. South Africa won the rain hit match against Sri Lanka, the match was shortened to seven overs a side. In the second game which I think was the most interesting game of this T20 world cup far, Australia best West Indies by Duckworth Luis system. In the West Indies innings we saw West Indies post a total of 191runs against strong bowling of Australia. I now understand the difference Chris Gayle makes in a team.

Today India and Pakistan will play their respective matches against England and New Zealand. For India, England and New Zealand these matches are of less importance as both the teams has already qualified for the super eight. However Pakistan is playing their first match of the tournament thus they need to start it off in a winning fashion. We may expect some changes in the playing eleven for India,New Zealand and the defending champions England. However Pakistan team need to pick best eleven in the team and that's what the captain Mohammad Hafeez and coach Dav Whatmore might be thinking about. The match between Pakistan will start at 3:30 pm local time (+5:50 GMT) and though it forecasts about rains I am confident of a full play today.

The second match today between India and England will be played at 7:30 pm local time and this might be another interesting match to watch. England are the defending champions of the twenty twenty world cup while Indians are the winners of the first T20 world cup played.  One thing might be interesting to see is the battle between Stuart Broad and Yuvraj Singh. 5 years back in the history it was Yuvraj Singh who hit the England bowler for 6 consecutive sixes in an over.

Lets wait and watch if something similar happens in the match today or we can see someone taking a ha-trick of wickets. Catch all the live scores and action of the matches in few hours from now. Stay tuned.
