As draws for the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 goes ‘India v England‘ probably is as good as it gets now that Pakistan (or for that matter Sri Lanka) did not qualify for the Semi-Finals.

‘India v West Indies‘ would have been popular BUT that will now be the Thursday, March 31, 2016 Semi-Final (i.e., semi #2). Unless Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels or Darren Sammy (among others) produces an absolute stunner, a 180+ strike rate 70+, India, playing at home, could/should pull off a win. They did well against Australia.

New Zealand have been unbeaten BUT upsets are easy in T20.

India v. England will elicit lots of pent up emotions. That would be a cracking final. I think India will win — though my record of predicting T20s is not great since luck rather than form plays such a HUGE role (and there are REVIEWS to overturn really bad umpiring decisions).

Can’t wait. Has been a good tournament.
