World Twenty20 - predictions

Twenty20
comment on the article

Arguably, cricket's most exciting world tournament begins on Friday - who do you fancy for the title?

Holders India looked pretty impressive against Pakistan and understandably go into the two-week event with the shortest odds. Australia are third favourites with many bookies behind South Africa, whose batsmen have impressed in the recent IPL.

Hosts England have players capable of challenging the favourites on their day, but the loss of Andrew Flintoff will be a bitter blow for Paul Collingwood's men.

How do you see things going?

England have just posted a good defendable total against the Dutch. May be a small step towards lifting the cup.

Indian cricketers are certainly looking good in all forms of cricket. In T-20 even the Netherlands could topple heavy weights on their day.

I dont care who wins it as long as it is not Sri Lanka. With the atrocities committed there in recent times.
I wish them an early exit and a thrashing at the hands of whoever they play against
