PREVIEW: WI a win away from Super Eights

Colombo, Sri Lanka - West Indies face a knock-out contest when they meet Ireland in the second Group B match of the ICC World T20 on Monday night at the R. Premadasa Stadium. First ball is 7:30 pm (10 am Eastern Caribbean Time/9 am Jamaica Time).

A win will see the Windies advance to the Super Eights but defeat would see them eliminated at the preliminary stage. The exploits of Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels and others against Australia, proved that the West Indies has enough fireworks to light up the tournament.

Girls go down in low-scoring warm-up

Colombo, Sri Lanka - The Moors Sports Club ground in Colombo saw two usually free-scoring women’s teams – Australia and West Indies – play out a low-scoring warm-up game ahead of the ICC Women’s World Twenty20.

Australia Women won the match by 19 runs as neither side looked comfortable with the alien conditions.
Batting first after winning the toss, Australia Women rode Jess Cameron’s 28-ball 37 and Alex Blackwell’s 21-ball 26 to end its 20 overs at 110-8.

Windies plan to hit Ireland hard

Colombo, Sri Lanka - The West Indies came into the ICC World Twenty20 2012 as one of the favoured teams to go all the way, but after a below-par bowling and fielding effort allied with untimely weather intervention, they finds themselves a defeat away from elimination.

Gayle's power had Watson sweating

Colombo, Sri Lanka - The general consensus was that Australia went hammer and tongs in its quest for 192, and victory against the West Indies, with an eye on the weather. Shane Watson debunked that theory, saying the Australians had no idea rain was around until he saw the groundstaff running in with the covers.  

Australia had reached 100 for 1 in 9.1 overs at that stage and was declared winner by 17 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis method to secure its place in the Super Eights of the ICC World Twenty20 2012.
