CRICKET UPDATE ICC T20 WORLD CUP 2016
NO ACTION ON FIELD.....
It's an off day today with no action on the field in the T20 World Cup in India. Tomorrow West Indies get an opportunity to reach the semifinals as they take on South Africa in the orange city of Nagpur in central India. West Indies have won both their matches so far in this tournament. South Africa, on the other hand, are in serious danger of being driven out of the T20 World Cup since they lost to England last week despite scoring 229 against them. The other match which all of India will be following with great and greater interest is the clash between Australia and Pakistan that's going to take place tomorrow in Mohali in the northern part of the country. If Pakistan lose then they are out of the tournament.
If Pakistan win and if Australia beat India on the weekend, it will be time for the mathematicians to get busy since we would have three teams Pakistan, India and Australia tied on points and the net run rate would then decide who will be the second semifinalist from the second group. New Zealand have already qualified for the semifinal from Group 2. Meanwhile Australian allrounder Shane Watson has announced his retirement from international cricket at the end of this T20 World Cup. Shane Watson just did not live up to expectations in Test cricket but figured prominently for Australia in ODIs, and was a member of the victorious Australian teams in the 2007 and 2015 World Cups.
