    I did. I just decided against answering the ridiculous categories and stuck to the serious ones. I don't honestly see the point in answering a ludicrous question about the first player to bleed on the pitch!

    Pietersen will be massively hyped before the tournament, but his record proves that he's not a great T20 player. There's a good chance he'll prove me wrong, but if his IPL performances are anything to go by, then he'll flop.

    i wish kevin Pietersen scores some good runs this time, he's a good player, don't go by records in t20, cuz it's a new format, none having too many t20 internationals
    so one can predict how someone is going to bowl or bat
    but for england to win, he must score some good & quick runs (not against Pakistan lol)

    I don wanna do the whole predictions.. But my pick is NZ to win and SL to finish runner up. Too much attention on India, RSA, Australia and England (coz they are hosts) means these guys will do very well without being noticed and then turn it on in the knock out stages.


    NZ esp. have an awesome top 4/5 for T20s...
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
