When Pakistan left-arm spinner Imad Wasim claimed 5 for 14 in the first T20 against West Indies at Dubai on Friday, he entered the club of bowlers with the top ten best figures in T20s. His 5 for 14 slots in at number eight in the list. Who else is part of the club? We tell you
Sri Lanka has made two changes to their Champions Trophy squad for the upcoming Tri-Series in West Indies. Tillakaratne Dilshan is out of the tournament because of the calf muscle injury he sustained during the Semi-Final against India.
Unlike what was expected, the World T20 in Sri Lanka did not spring up any surprise packages, i.e. talented but inexperienced players making their mark. On the contrary, it were the old hands who delivered for their respective sides, which reiterated that experience is invaluable irrespective of the game’s format.
West Indies clinched the ICC World T20 2012 after outplaying hosts Sri Lanka in a one-sided contest at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Sri Lanka needing only 138 to chase made a complete mess because of the soft approach from its top order.
Sri Lanka are almost there into the Semi Finals after beating West Indies by a big margin of 9 wickets with 28 balls to spare at Pallekele. The hosts made short work of the West Indian target of 130 by romping home in just 15.2 overs.
