A T20 World Cup is around the corner. For Sri Lanka, it begins with qualifiers that kick off approximately six weeks from now – so get your fingers crossed and pray to whichever God you believe in because this could be their time! But if they don’t make it through those initial stages then there’s still South Africa who go straight into the main event without having played any preliminary rounds; all we need do as fans of cricketing drama (and winners!) is wait about a week later…
A few days ago I read an article discussing which country would qualify fastest out 10 teams taking part at next month’s Cricket World Cup: India or Pakistan?

Either way, this is the lead-in – the phase in which teams look to tighten up their combinations, get key players into form, and battle-test their match-ups and strategies. South Africa’s eight T20I wins to their seven losses this year suggest they are closer to figuring out a good game plan than Sri Lanka, who have lost six and won only three (two of those wins were against a severely depleted second-string India side).
