England are the current T-20 World Champions


Difficult To Guess the Outcome of the Series

England made a clean sweep of the one day match series by winning it 4-0. Now it is preparing to take Pakistan in the T-20 series. The first match starts at the International Cricket Stadium, Dubai today. In all the four one day matches, England’s superiority was well displayed. But before the commencement of the one day series, England played four test matches against Pakistan and lost all the four tests. Therefore it is very difficult to guess the outcome of the T-20 series.

One Day Match Is More Closely Related To T-20 than Test Match

Since the one day match is more closely connected with the T-20 match compared to the Test match, let us analyse the performance of both the teams in the recently concluded one day series. England showed its superiority in all departments of the game and outplayed Pakistan. In the first two matches, England captain Alastair Cook showed remarkable form and scored centuries continuously. In the third match, Cook was out for 80. In the third and fourth match, Cook’s partner and other opener Kevin Pietersen scored centuries. In the final match, it looked as though Pietersen would hit the winning boundary for England. But it was not to be and he was out for a well made 130, leaving the finishing job to Samit Patel.

England in Good Nick

England bowlers James Anderson, Stuart Brad and others bowled well and had a good line and length. They took wickets at regular intervals and troubled the Pakistani batsmen. The fielding of England team was also very good with a few exceptions in the form of misfielding and dropped catches.

England Are the Current World T-20 Champions

If England can maintain the same degree of strength in the T-20 series also, it can win this series also. But it is very difficult to say whether this will happen. T-20 is a totally unconventional play. Here very unorthodox strokes are needed to hit runs in quick time. There is no time for the batsmen to settle down. The moment the batsman arrives at the crease, he has to start hitting out. It is a do or die battle. But England being the current T-20 World Champions, one can expect the England superiority to continue in this T-20 series also against Pakistan.
