Twenty20 supremacy at stake

Pakistan, Australia favourites

Oscar-winning Indian music composer AR Rahman and Senegalese-American R&B singer Akon performed together in the unnamed opening ceremony concert of the 2014 Twenty20 World Cup in Bangladesh on Thursday, March 13.

It will be the biggest multi-nation tournament ever held in Bangladesh in terms of participating teams, as 16 men’s teams — 10 full members and six qualifiers — and eight women’s teams will take part in the mega event which will be played from March 16 to April 6 next year in four venues across the country.

Australia, still trying to win their maiden World T20 trophy, and Pakistan, champions of 2009 edition, have credentials to be labelled as strong contenders. Defending champions West Indies would like to prove that their triumph in 2012 was no flash in pan while Sri Lanka will like to be third time lucky having lost two finals in 2009 and 2012 respectively. India, Champions of the inaugural edition of 2007, will be looking to make amends for their dismal run starting with two series abroad in South Africa, New Zealand and then the Asia Cup in Bangladesh. Two and half months into 2014, India have only two international victories - that too against minnows Bangladesh and Afghanistan.

Twenty20 International History

First Twenty20 Internationals

First T20I On 17 February 2005 Australia defeated New Zealand in the first men's full international Twenty20 match, played at Eden Park in Auckland. The game was played in a light-hearted manner - both sides turned out in kit similar to that worn in the 1980s, the New Zealand team's a direct copy of that worn by the Beige Brigade. Some of the players also sported moustaches/beards and hair styles popular in the 1980s taking part in a competition amongst themselves for best retro look, at the request of the Beige Brigade. Australia won the game comprehensively, and as the result became obvious towards the end of the NZ innings, the players and umpires took things less seriously - Glenn McGrath jokingly replayed the Trevor Chappell underarm incident from a 1981 ODI between the two sides, and Billy Bowden showed him a mock red card (red cards are not normally used in cricket) in response. The first Twenty20 international in England was played between England and Australia at the Rose Bowl in Hampshire on the 13 June 2005, which England won by a record margin of 100 runs. On 9 January 2006 Australia and South Africa met in the first international Twenty20 game in Australia. In a first, each player's nickname appeared on the back of his uniform, rather than his surname. The international match drew a crowd of 38,894 people at the The Gabba. Australia convincingly won the match with man of the match Damien Martyn scoring 96 runs. On 16 February 2006 New Zealand defeated West Indies in a tie-breaking bowl-out 3-0; 126 runs were scored apiece in the game proper. The game was the last international match played by Chris Cairns - NZC handed out life-size cardboard masks of his face to patrons as they entered the ground.
