    Straight-forward group, barring an Irish surprise.

    Presumably because they are champs?

    Pak also has a relatively easy task.

    Yeah I asked that in the Ireland thread; apparently it's because the draw was based on the last Twenty20 WC, where Bangladesh (and Scotland) finished ahead of the West Indies.

    England
    Bangladesh
    (Zimbabwe - pulled out)
    Associate 1
    West Indies
    Associate 2
    (Associate 3)

    So 1 was paired with 8 and 9, 2 with 7 and 10, etc.

    It's a tad stupid because

    a) Associate 1 in 2007 was actually Scotland
    b) Scotland were only ahead of WI in 2007 because a game got rained off

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    I am wary of Bangladesh whenever they play us since the 2007 WC.

    India through no matter what, but tough between Bangladesh and Ireland. I might just edge in favour of Bangladesh by about 2 runs or 1 wicket.

    it'll depend upon pitch & weather conditions
    cold conditions with moist in pitch
    ireland 'll win easily
    but if it's a flat pitch, offcourse bangladesh 'll make it easily

    Syed Rasel is going to be the X factor in this entire Competition. He's Healthy Again, His FC records in England are unheard of for a Bangladeshi and he's one of the best economical bowlers in T20.

    If it Swings it'll play more into Bangladesh's hands, with Rasel in.

    Mortaza, Rasel, Razzak, Shakib and R. Hossian (The Guy Murali Smashed) will make a very formidable bowling attack

    Can't possibly be true- Ireland are not only much more used to trying to swing the ball, but their batsmen are more accustomed to playing against it. You could say Bangladesh are favourites whether it swings or not, but it's definitely not a good thing from their perspective to see it hooping.

    Me too, maybe they've got a 'easy group to prevent another debacle like in the 2007 WC when, people would just not let go of the fact that India and Pakistan went out early because they did ot play well enough then to qualify.

    Hope if India play badly enough to actually lose to any one of these teams they man up about it.

    I understand your grievances against India, but rest assured India was and is man enough to accep when it loses. If this grouping was purposefully done to give India a free passage it would be because of ICC wanting to maximize its profit and not because of any whining from us.

    AWTA.

    This should be an easy run for India through to the semi finals, but it has the potential to be an absolute disaster. Especially as we are currently the defending World Champions. Hope we play some good cricket right from the start and qualify for the next stage comfortably.

    India is placed with the weekest team at Group Stage. But please focus on Super Eight group where they are placed with SouthAfrica, Australia and England. If all three teams qualify for Super Eight Stage.
