The team that has the smartest bowlers will win the T-20 world cup. I would have named Srilanka straight away but Murali has already opted out of T-20s. Australia and SA have got good chances. Asian teams havent yet played enough T-20 to make a mark this time. If the Pakistani speedsters hit form (which I doubt), they have a chance. But their batting looks suspect for T-20.

T20 must not be taken seriously it is just a festival game i think pakistan has a very good chance because of return of akhtar and asif there bowling become really good because they have two 90+ bowlers and they also have afridi.malik.razzaq.hafeez.nazeer and alam in thier ranks

but it is very difficult to pridict

ICC announces T20 umpires
Agence France-Presse . Karachi
The International Cricket Council Thursday announced the umpires and match referees for the inaugural Twenty20 world championships, excluding five involved in April’s shambolic World Cup final.
‘A total of three ICC match referees and nine umpires will officiate during the 27-match Twenty20 World Cup, which is scheduled to take place from 11-24 September in South Africa,’ an ICC press release said.
The three referees, all from the ICC Elite Panel, are headed by former Sri Lanka captain Ranjan Madugalle and include Mike Procter, the former South Africa all-rounder and ex-England opening batsman Chris Broad.
The nine umpires include five officials from the ICC Elite Panel, namely Australians Daryl Harper and Simon Taufel, England’s Mark Benson, Billy Doctrove of the West Indies, and Asad Rauf from Pakistan.
The four other umpires, who are from the ICC International Panel, are Steve Davis of Australia, South African Ian Howell, England’s Nigel Llong and Tony Hill from New Zealand.
The match appointments for the opening stage of the tournament will be made and announced in due course, said the release.
The ICC however said that it had left out all five officials who were responsible for the bungled end to the World Cup final in the West Indies earlier this year.
It announced the decision to omit them last month.
Australia’s victory against Sri Lanka in the showpiece match in Barbados on April 28 was overshadowed by a farcical climax brought about by a failure to apply a standard playing condition.
Referee Jeff Crowe, on-field umpires Steve Bucknor and Aleem Dar, third umpire Rudi Koertzen and reserve official Billy Bowden incorrectly ruled, after a stoppage for bad light, the game had to continue even though the required minimum of 20 overs in the second innings had by then already been bowled.
The officials insisted Sri Lanka bat out the final three overs of the game in near darkness.
All 10 Test playing countries, along with associate teams Kenya and Scotland, will compete in the Twenty20 event. Matches will be held at Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, the ICC said.

On the contrary, I have my doubts regarding bowlers like Akhtar and Lee. There will be a lot of slogging in T20s and if someone is bowling at that speed, even thin edges will fly for six. Akhtar might win one....two...matches for Pakistan. But sometime some slogger will get the better of him. In T20, you need smart bowlers, not very fast bowlers.

well said
taht is why i said it is very difficult to pridict who knows may akhtar fired some deleveries at 95+ and batsman does not able to put a bat on it and may he edges it to boundry

THE Twenty20 World Cup has already succeeded where the 50-overs version failed in getting a sold-out grand final. And both semi-finals. And the opening game.
Tournament director Steve Elworthy has confirmed the first match between South Africa and the West Indies on September 11 will be played in front of a full house at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

Bowden is one of the umpires suspended for the Championship due to his involvement in the World Cup final fiasco in Barbados and his inimitable style certainly would have fitted in with the whole Twenty20 concept.


He will be missed

i'd say australia but i don't know much about t-20 in other countries so not sure how good anyone is really. but i know that in australia the t-20 game isn't taken nearly as seriously as the other forms of cricket so if australia starts to take it seriously then they'll be hard to stop. in saying that this type of tournament could all come down to which team is in the best form onthe day.

Sri Lanka is hardly a hobbit. They're significantly better than the Indo-Pak teams put together IMHO ... in all forms of cricket.

Not sure about that ...SL hardly wins against India in tests.Were routed the last time we played tests.....(also against common opponents we do far better than them in tests) agree they seem to be better this time around in ODI ..but things change very quickly in ODI's ..today it is them ..tomm. it could be us.
