    Anyway - the Qualifying Groups.

    I would say Bangladesh look hot favourites for Group A (though Afghanistan did beat them in the Asia Cup), but B is less clear - Ireland to edge out Zimbabwe?

    Your presentation on this, the thread dedicated to the World Twenty20 2014 Bangladesh.

    Bangladesh and Ireland are surely the favourites but in this game anyone can beat almost anyone.

    How good are Sri Lanka these days? Can see England struggling to win any of their games though Bopara and Buttler are potential match winners.

    Bangladesh win today over Afghanistan means they are virtually through after just 1 game!
    I guess while Sri Lanka don't have Murali, they do have Malinga so while not the force they were, they are still half decent?
    As for England, the beauty of T20 is that anyone can beat anyone.- they do have some good players, though with some injured (Root/Stokes and poss Broad), some not selected (KP) and some out of form (Morgan) it's hard to see them winning it - however they only have to finish 4th in a group of 5 to qualify for the QF's

    It's top two qualify for semis, this tournament is unusually brief. Need to win three games probably.

    Ah that makes a bit more sense!
    I don't think we are good enough to be in the top 2, but at least it sounds as if Broad is going to be fit

    Ireland beat Zimbabwe, tense finish - needing 4 off final over, lost 2 wickets in that over and got there on the final ball.

    I don't know why they had the 2 "big games" in each group first - would have been better if Ireland v Zimbabwe and Bangladesh v Afghanistan were the last games

    Would have made sense.

    England who had just played 6 ODI/T20 games against WI lost their warm-up game to WI... A warm-up against an Asian side might have made sense.

    Ok fair enough but they didn't need a warm-up against WI.

    I recall a tournament a few years back, can't remember which (WC, CT, T20WC) but we'd toured WI then WI toured here then we played a warm-up game against WI. Need to mix it up a bit.

    Blistering start by Holland chasing Ireland's 189: 82 for 0 after 5 overs. Not sure what a Holland win will mean regarding who qualifies.

    Edit:
    Holland win with 5 or so overs to spare: they top the group
    Holland win otherwise: Zimbabwe top the group
    Ireland win: Ireland top group

    England all-rounder Luke Wright has been ruled out of the World Twenty20 with a right side strain, and will be replaced by Craig Kieswetter - batting wise not much difference, but it means we lose a bowling option

    England lose by DL with just 5.2 overs bowled, bugger. Need to win the next three games.

    Dutch all out for 39 having battered Ireland the other day, clearly these associate teams are not good enough to play in major tournaments.
