Kridaya has it up, and I’m so happy the tournament’s short, clocking in at 16 days between June 5–June 21. Notice also that the round robin stage is done like that. Each side plays each other once, then the top 8 teams proceed to the next stage. Get this nonsense over already!
My pick: Bangladesh. Go, green, go!
UPDATE: Speaking of possible upsets, did anyone else notice how the tournament is organized so both Pakistan and India will proceed only if they beat their 2007 World Cup nemeses? The top two teams of each group are selected. Group A has India, Bangladesh, Ireland, and Group B has England, Netherlands, and Pakistan. Unfairly, Group C has no minnows in it, while Group D has Scotland.
Sure, Twenty20 is no ODI, but what a better way to show India’s “young” strategy has worked some wonders since 2007?
