ICC World Twenty20 2014 Championships
Twenty20 supremacy at stake
Pakistan, Australia favourites
Mar 13, 2014
Oscar-winning Indian music composer AR Rahman and Senegalese-American R&B singer Akon performed together in the unnamed opening ceremony concert of the 2014 Twenty20 World Cup in Bangladesh on Thursday, March 13.
It will be the biggest multi-nation tournament ever held in Bangladesh in terms of participating teams, as 16 men’s teams — 10 full members and six qualifiers — and eight women’s teams will take part in the mega event which will be played from March 16 to April 6 next year in four venues across the country.
Australia, still trying to win their maiden World T20 trophy, and Pakistan, champions of 2009 edition, have credentials to be labelled as strong contenders. Defending champions West Indies would like to prove that their triumph in 2012 was no flash in pan while Sri Lanka will like to be third time lucky having lost two finals in 2009 and 2012 respectively. India, Champions of the inaugural edition of 2007, will be looking to make amends for their dismal run starting with two series abroad in South Africa, New Zealand and then the Asia Cup in Bangladesh. Two and half months into 2014, India have only two international victories - that too against minnows Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
