    NZ's top order will actually survive most of the innings (except for Ryder obviously), but instead go at about 3 an over til McCullum finally hits one and holes out.
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    They're not that hard to work out.

    Pakistan 130
    South Africa 119
    Sri Lanka 115
    Australia 112
    India 109

    Ireland 100

    Canada 59
    Scotland 50
    Kenya 35
    Bermuda 0

    edit: Pakistan to 132 and Australia to 109 after the Dubai game

    Pakistan 'll win it( only cuz i'm a pakistani, i'll say Pakistan 'll win it lol)
    but i guess they can reach semi's with ease
    England, Netherlands & Pakistan in group b

    probably england & pakistan 'll reach next round

    pakistan 'll 've to face, Newzealand, bangladesh, (srilanka or westindies) in super 8's
    can win 2 out of 3 to qualify for the semi's

    on the other hand, india 'll 've Australia, south africa & england is super 8's
    this one is a tough group i guess

    can't choose 2 to reach semi's, cuz anythin can happen
    i'm not guessing it, i saw how groups are managed in icc website

    Wow NZ and Pakistan should do pretty well in that first group. The other is basically the hammer England round.

    Yeah, but the two Super Eight groups are made up of one team from each of the four preliminary groups, so really, every combination is possible. He's assuming SA beats NZ, and Australia win both their games, for example.

    Younis Khan has commented that Pakistan will win the Twenty 20 cup this time around. He is confident that Pakistan will win the coveted Twenty 20 Cup this time. Pakistan still regrets losing to India in the final of the ICC Twenty 20 World Cup two years ago, as captain Younis Khan has said that he will make sure that his side wins the trophy this time around.

    Well if Pakistan has to blame anyone for losing last world cup final, that would be Younis khan
    he ran Imran Nazir out & then played a lose short
    in the end it was the fall of wickets that was the cause of defeat
    & the truth is Pakistan lost it rather than india winning it
    even with that score on that pitch, bangladesh would 've chased it down
    & Younas khan saying that he wants to see pakistan winning, well it doesn't look like that
    specially when better twenty 20 players are sitting out & players like Younis Khan playing in twenty 20, it doesn't look like Pakistan winning it

    I calculated them - using pretty much the same methods the ICC use for their 50-over rankings. So not official in any way.

    Pakistan have won about 75 % of their Twenty20 games, which explains their high ranking.

    For me India won't win. Repeat victories have never been our thing and I don't think we can replicate the success of 2007. I'd love to see us do it though but it's a long shot at best. I think South Africa, Australia and India will make the Semi Finals but I'm leaning towards Sri Lanka for the victory.
    AWTA. I voted for Windies... Juz thinking how much funny it would be if Gayle does pose at Lords with World T20 crown given his interviews and the reactions to them recently...

    IMO, it's a lottery

    Many of India's main players are out of form and only getting a game in the IPL because of quota system

    Oz has picked their test team and most dont have a clue how to play the game anyway

    Pak have hardly played any games

    Ditto Eng

    Many of Sa's main players are lucky to get a game in the IPL

    WI are a rabble at the moment

    Dark horses could be NZ as they have quite a few high high impact players
