Who will win ICC T20 World Cup 2009?

ICC World Twenty20 starts this June 5 at England. 12 countries will participate in this event. India, Australia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, South Africa, New Zealand, West Indies, Sri Lanka, Scotland, Ireland and Netherlands will be participatng on this event.

India are the defending Champions of the Cup which was played 2 years ago in South Africa. Every team looks better and better this time as they have collected more experience in this form of the game recently. Pakistan were the runner-up of the inaugural. Australia have recently lost their world's no.1 spot in ODI but still are very strong team.

England
, being the host country, would give their best for the T20 cup. South Africa is the no.1 spotted in ODI ranking and their team looks in great form for the T20 World Cup in England. South African players have great season international cricket and recently played IPL in SA.

Sri Lanka have the new captain this time and they would really like to forget the Pakistan event. This team is line-up as the mixture of both greatly experienced one and youngsters. New Zealand team lead by Vettori would like grab the cup first international ICC event. West Indies team seemed worse on the England last month as they had to give up against England in both test an ODIs but this format is different and they love to remember the ICC Champions trophy win some years back in the same country. But the problem is that they may not reach the semis as they are in the group with Australia and Sri Lanka.

Bangladesh
is placed with India and Ireland so this seems that they have great chance to qualify for the semis but would definitely go further and prove themselves. The non-test playing nations Ireland, Scotland and Netherlands cannot be underestimated.

Tough Competition this year in England. Now, you have the chance make your predictions.

Vote for your team and Please post your comments on why the team you chose can win.

  1. I am sure Pakistan will win the T20 World cup 2009. They are brilliant in t20 format with great players like Afridi, Misbah, Shoaib Malik and Sohail Tanvir. They showed great game in 2007 format and this time it will be even better.

    I think India has not good bowling lineup.

  2. As Pakistan has a good team which i agree fully with u, but teams like India, South Africa and Australia to name a few have very good teams as well. So it would be an interesting World T20.

  3. No India seems to be doing well in T20. This time will be also India in Final.
    Pakistan will miss some attacking players this time. Hope they meet India in the Final...

  7. I think SA will win the T20 world cup. They have a mix of quality all rounders and their batting have no tail. In addition to that SA team is a superb fielding side with a good pace attack. Only problem for SA is that they are chokers in key games. The second best team is India and might run SA close. On current form it has to be an India -SA final. You can judge who will win!

  8. i am a pakistani man, born and bred in england. i have watched pakistan for the last 10 years and i have seen how the team have gone from world class to this declined state they are in now. From the time that wasim akram left, this team they bring from pakistan for the world cup tournaments are only good for sitting in restaurents and having free meals, going to photoshoots and looking at girls who are 15 years younger than them, not training, not taking no game seriuosly, match fixing,betting on themselves - i am sick of seeing these teams from pakistan year after year disgracing us in england. they want to take out all the rich kids in pakistan, and put in the proper players from the villages and gettos again. all these guys are good for are coming to our shores, disgracing us, catching a flight back to pakistan and sitting in a restaiurent, eating and talking shit about politics. p.s me and my fellow muslim brothers in this country as a result wish that india kicks their arse! mohammed ali.

  9. i think pakistan will not be able to get into the finals this 20 because they are lacking the whole package.. batting,bowling,and fielding. They are not taking the game seriously and what they dont realise is england is full of pakistanis and if they dont get their act together im afraid they will be facing some very angry, dissapointed pakistanis... (and that can be a very harsh scene) im pakistani myself but i really have no faith that pakistan will win... But i sincerely pray to God that they do well... Inshallah.. if they dont wana take it seriously then im gonna be the first one to batter them up... IM COUNTING ON YOU!!!

  12. India is the lord of t20 and i am sure they would win.

  13. according wat we have seen in da past few matches, sri lanka and south africa r da favorites for the final, but still according to the behaviour of this format, even ireland can win the title! who ever wins lets hope for a last ball final!!! and lets enjoy it!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Whoever says Ireland can win is completely crack. Winning a match against Bangladesh and winning the whole t20 world cup are very different things. Don't expect it to be won by such teams.

    ReplyDelete
  15. New Zealand team must win the cup. Since they are in gr8 form i thnk

    ReplyDelete
  16. I think south africa will wim. They have the best all round team. And they r the no1 team in the world.

    ReplyDelete
  17. India reserved T20 2009... In my point India had good batting orders....batting is 80% important for T20

  18. @ Raja

    Are you crazy? Pakistan won't even make the finals you idiot. Pakistan is one of the worst teams.
    And also, how can you say India doesn't have a good bowling line up. Have you ever seen India play? They are the current champions. It will be a close match between them and South Africa.

    Maybe South Africa will win. They're a very strong team

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sri Lanka is sure to win!! India and SA are close contenders!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I will go with Sri Lanka. They have the best bowling attack in the tournament. Scoring against 3M's is not easy as far as we seen so far. The only worry was their batting and with Innovative Dilshan in form they are the best side in the tournament. India's batting is not as dangerous as it used to be without Shewag. They will miss him in big games. So my money is with Sri Lanka.

  21. who say pak will not go to he finals. Pak and Sri in finals. india were lucky that they came to super 8s. the teams were Ban and IRE. Zero points in Group E

  23. india will fail with all the worst teams...butt...only all the world records can be crossed by indians....pakistan can win only with fools

  24. Ya i agree with MOLU.. Tat was spot on.. When playing against the best indians always plays like the real champion.. But pakistan fit for winning against minows.. No surprice if pakistan fails against the minos too.. India always rocks buddy may be a bit of barriers in the middle is good for them coz it always brings the best out of them.. Mark my words they will reach finals from then its anybodys game.. This comment is after they lost to west indies in the 1st super eight match with two must win games against host ENGLAND and mighty SOUTH AFRICA..

    ReplyDelete
  25. Molu and Vijay krish are not commeting without thinking. Its very difficult for India now even to reach the semi-finals. Pakistan is almost sure of reaching the semis as they will certainly beat Ireland.
    Then, two more matches and if they shine, the cup is for pakistan. South Africa and Pakistan now are on top and are most likely to reach the finals.

  29. Did you see India's performance. Ha! Ha! Ha! India are out of T20 world cup and about Pakistan, don't worry it would not just be in final but would definitely win the tournament. For India to be in final hope for next time.Ha Ha Ha

    ReplyDelete
  30. India got quallity batmans in their line-up but prolem is they are always trying to attack...they dont know paly according to situation...thats why they lost last match against England..i feel South Africa,West Indians,New Zealand and Sri Lanka go for semi finals..n South Africa and Sri Lanka will meet in finals...i feel sorry about india...but they are too much so they have to learn

    ReplyDelete
  31. sudip pakistan will lose i am damnn sure...the nonsense team...if whoever takes the cup pakistan should not...its ma wish...i am praying...i bet u they will fail some where....mmmmm hahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  32. Please believe others. When you said India will win, India got out of T20 World cup which was as I said. Now you are making foolish comments saying Pakistan will loose to Ireland. Ha ha. Though Pakistan lost to ireland in 2007, everyday is not a Sunday. I am dammn sure, Pakistan will win T20 World cup. Look at the bowling and batting.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I just want to ask you one question - What do you say about india's performance to T20 World cup - Molu.

    ReplyDelete
  34. india didnt perform well i agree...but pakistan will not win the world cup...damn sure

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sri Lanka Will win. Period! Is it that hard to see? ha? HA?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am sorry for India and it is difficult for Pakistan also to win cup but just two matches .. if fluke worked then there is a chance. As we were neighbours to each others we need to support each other and take as a game not as a war. Both have a nice future ahead. Greetings from Pakistan.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nobody can predict what will happen. Now Englands out together with Ausi and India. I think Sri Lanka will go off tomorow so... It looks like a walk in the park for South Africa. But guys its T20 any four of these teams can win the cup. South Africa, Pakistan, New Zealand or highly unpredictable West Indies... Keep your figers crossed and lot of great Cricket ahead of us regardless who will win :) Lets enjoy

  40. Guys, I think it's Sri Lanka and South Africa in the final. South Africa looks so much better team in this T20. SA won back to back and they haven't been beaten until today. Let's see who will win in today's match between SA vs. India (India suck !!!)

  50. HAHAHAH
    by seeing comments before 5th june about India i was really feeling that All indians are proud upto a condemnable level, and now fate has shown them they were not simply right in their approach, am talking about the slogans enchanted in Indian media like
    " YEH CUP KAHEE NAHEE JAEGA "
    hahahahahahahaha
    hahahahaha
    down to india
    They lost completely
    hahahaha
    they loose all the mathes in super eight ! and won just against SCOTLAND AND BANGLADESH ( That is their actual level ).

    Pakistan to which they were condemning is now in semis.

    ReplyDelete
  51. India lost to the stupid mistakes, changing the batting line up when you should stick to the requirements of the situation...SA are labelled chokers but are looking a formidable talent, Pakistan will over come that as they can adapt to situations very quickly and have the fire power to do so... SL are also very strong contenders... West Indies are emerging, they have had a lot of luck after the Ausi game... SL and SA will have to lose some time or another there run will be broken... Pakistan and SL final PAK WINNERS

    ReplyDelete
  52. For all the Pakistani and Indian supporters, Guys your teams doesnt have BRAINS only BODY's, just look at SA and SL how smart they are. You Indians and Pakistani's only have BIG MOUTHS nothing else. Dumn Pakistani idiots lets see how embressing defeat you will face tomorrow. Thses comments are a bloody good example of how STUPID Indian's and Pakistani's are, no suprise your teams are soo dumn.

  69. Ok Seriously this about time ppl from both sides grow up... stop this childish nonsense.... I m thankful to God for letting Pakistan come in finals.... it was completely unexpecting, but we are there in finals .... but i m sorry for Indias, they worked really hard but somtimes i guess small mistakes result in a bigger loss.... on the other hand i don't think Pakistan tried that hard and themselves weren't expecting to get that far but i guess good luck came in Handy.... ppl from both sides still should be happy that nomatter who wins World cup will stay in the continent.....

    Ok, A job well done by Pakistan in making the Finals against Sri Lanka, but both Indians and Pakistanis on here should serouisly stop making fun of each other for no reason because if you really think about it Pakistanis were Indians once. Whatever though best of luck to Pakistan, Inshallah they will win the cup and bring it home to Pakistan. May Allah lead the Pakistani Team to victory against Sri Lanka, Ameen.

  72. its funny how indians and pakistanis are posting rude comments on each other. Im from England and I think Sri Lanka has a big chance of winning. But pakistan team is very unpredictable. they are a very competitive side though. Its amazing how it came down to two asian teams competing for the final. may the best team win!

    @ALL INDIANS

    GREET US AS WE HAVE WON !

    We have shown our real power , and please dont forget we were just a Misbah's Mistake behind the Last T20 World Cup in 2007.
    And this time we won !

    Pakistan has shown consistency which is lacking in every team of the world in T20 format. We are simply great in this form of cricket.

    as we were Runner UP in 2007 (Due to One mistake by Misbah)

    We are champions in 2009 ! (Hurray , head of to Afridi)

    all our country is enchanting slogans of victory ! i have been in streets of Islamabad from Midnight to 6:00 AM. and have seend peoples dancing all around in the blocked Roads. Those who were not dancing were enchanting Slogans in favor of our Team and country !
    Yes we have done it !

    We proved that we dont need IPL or ICL ...
    Our players didnt played much International Cricket

    But THE CORNERED TIGERS have Roared Again and this time this roar has shockened the neighbouring INDIA.
