    This should really be either India or England winning this. Best T20 squads by a distance.

    Finishing second in Group A looks the better option.

    Do you mean the qualifiers or Group 1 which England are in?

    It's in the UAE and the games will be shown on the Skysports cricket channel.

    Yeah, true. Our hardest game will probably be against the West Indies. They can score as heavily as anybody on their day.

    Sri Lanka have fallen a long way. They used to have a cracking one day team.

    In Group B I would say Scotland and Bangladesh will qualify, in Group A it could be anybody, looks very tight, although you would think it will be Sri Lanka and Ireland, although the other 2 are no mugs.

    Oman easily beat Papua New Guinea.

    Scotch defending 140 against Bangladesh.

    Indeed, thought 140 was nowhere near enough but what do I know?

    Scotland were 45-1 and then 53-6 at one point. They did well to get 140. A cracking win.

    And surely Namibia will have some South African born players in their team? Ireland definitely got a harder group than Scotland.

    Ireland have a bit of form so hopefully they can keep it up

    Ireland are ranked 13 on the points table. They won both the games in their last two warm-up fixtures against Papua New Guinea and Bangladesh. In the recent five-match T20 series against Zimbabwe, Ireland won the series by a 3-2 margin. They are in pretty good form and would be hopeful of a strong showing in the big-ticket event.
