    World T20 Warm Up Matches Schedule

    Warm- Up Matches:

    With just one-month to go before the start of the ICC World Twenty20 Sri Lanka 2012, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the schedule of men’s and women’s warm-up matches which will be played in the lead up to the event proper.

    The fourth edition of the event, the first to take place in the subcontinent, will be staged from 18 September to 7 October. The event begins for the men on 18 September and 26 September for the women. The men’s competition will be staged in Colombo, Hambantota and Pallekelle while the women’s group stage will be played in Galle.

    However, Colombo alone will host the warm-up matches for both the men and women. The men’s warm-up matches will be played from 13 to 17 September and women’s matches on 22 and 23 September.

    Host Sri Lanka will play warm-up matches against the West Indies and India at NCC ground and P.Sara Oval on 13 and 15 September, respectively while defending champion England’s warm-up matches are against Australia and Pakistan at the NCC Ground and P.Sara Oval on 17 and 19 September, respectively.

    In the feature warm-up match, Asian rivals and former champions India and Pakistan will go head to head at R.Premadasa Stadium on Monday, 17 September. This match will start at 1400 (Colombo time) and will be the only warm-up game which will be covered live by ICC’s broadcast partner ESPN STAR Sports.

    I think its to do with the inclusion of SL A in one of the warm up games seems a bit daft really.

    ^ You mean Afghanistan? Presumably, a SL A game will help the box office.

    Also, some formal acknowledgement (from whomever), that SA is too strong to beat. This way the choker tag can finally be applied legally when they bow out.

    Zimbabwe have been owned by Ireland.

    Amazing bowling figures for Cusack: 3 overs, 6 runs, 3 wickets. Top batting from the O'Briens. They'll be fun to watch when the competition proper gets underway.


    And on a similar note...

    WI have been owned by SL.

    Dilshan and Jayawardene carving them up.

    Pathan with a 5-fer! Also lol at the 5 wickets in the last 7 balls

    Afghanistan racked up a pretty big total as well, beating SL A by ~50 runs. They benched Hamid Hassan though which is a pity since he probably needs match practice.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Once again more evidence for my theory that New Zealand, on the first day of any tour or series, are absoutely woeful, hence the first test performance against India.

    Broad showing the benefit of playing no competitive cricket at all in the four weeks leading up to the tournament.
