Big hitter Gayle will be in his element.Each team competing in the Twenty20 World Cup later this month is likely to still have a few T20 fixtures to undertake between now and the start of the tournament, but it is worth a look at how everyone is shaping up.

After all, no matter what happens over the next few weeks, anything can happen when the time comes. Shock victories, below par performances and result changing moments of magic are all part of the Twenty20 deal.

 

Big hitter Gayle will be in his element.Each team competing in the Twenty20 World Cup later this month is likely to still have a few T20 fixtures to undertake between now and the start of the tournament, but it is worth a look at how everyone is shaping up.

After all, no matter what happens over the next few weeks, anything can happen when the time comes. Shock victories, below par performances and result changing moments of magic are all part of the Twenty20 deal.

From an England point of view, they are of course the defending Champions, but will have to do without the man of the tournament from last time – Kevin Pietersen.

England's go too man for Twenty20 runs is out of the reckoning at the moment and is unlikely to resolve his differences to make a dramatic return later this month. This, combined with the tough Sri Lanka conditions, means that England are not expected to be World Champions once again.

There is an argument that this could work in favour of Stuart Broad's men though. Since becoming No.1 Test team in the world, their performances have dipped, so perhaps they prefer people writing them off. As mentioned, they come into this tournament as the holders, but by no means the favourites.

That tag belongs to India. Always a force in Twenty20 cricket, they will enjoy the conditions and letting their young and exciting batting line-up loose on the World Twenty20 stage. They have Yuvraj Singh back in the squad too and this is a huge boost to their chances.

Second favourite are South Africa, who do not have as good a record in this tournament as you might expect. They reached the semi-final when hosting in 2007, but this is the closest they have come to being successful.

A good balance and some experienced match winners mean they cannot be ruled out though. It will remain to be seen how much a long and tough tour of England will affect them.

Next in line is host nation Sri Lanka, a team that will revel in what should be a carnival home atmosphere. The Australians will look to go one better than last time around too, when they lost the final to England. Led by Michael Clarke, there is a positive feeling around the squad at the moment.

Largely thanks to Chris Gayle, the West Indies have a similar chance to England and New Zealand. The shortest form of the game is the Windies strongest at the moment – they are ranked 5th in the world – and there is no doubt that they will be eyeing an upset or two.

Beyond the teams mentioned, you start coming to the outsiders. Led by New Zealand who could arguably have it in them to go all the way, the likes of Bangladesh, Zimbabwe, Ireland and Afghanistan will be in it for the experience.

Having said that, they can definitely eye a victory against one of the big guns. It has happened before and it will happen again. All of these supposed minnows will play their part in what should be a thoroughly entertaining and explosive tournament.

Host nation Sri Lanka get things underway against Zimbabwe on the 18th September, while defending Champions England take on Afghanistan on 21st September.

Bring it on.
