The worlds best are ready for action
The best cricketers in the world are gearing up for the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 with all 12 squads now having been confirmed.
The South African cities of Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town will be the venues for this intensive two-week event and a host of top players from all over the globe are chomping at the bit to get stuck in.
The likes of Adam Gilchrist, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Jacob Oram, Shahid Afridi, Muttiah Muralidaran, AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle, Tamim Iqbal, Kevin Pietersen and Tatenda Taibu will all be there from each of the ten Full Members while players of the calibre of Steve Tikolo and Ryan Watson will be among those representing the world of Associate cricket.
As well as the top ten teams, which qualified automatically, Kenya and Scotland got to this stage having made it to the final of the ICC World Cricket League Division 1, held in Nairobi in February.
The ICC World Twenty20 will take place from 11 to 24 September and will involve 12 teams, 27 matches, three venues and countless thrills.
Tournament director Steve Elworthy welcomed the squad announcements.
“Looking down through the squad lists it is very exciting to see the quality of talent that will be on show during the event,” he said.
“Every single team has potential match-winners within its ranks and I have no doubt that we are going to see some amazing performances during the two weeks of the tournament.
“Players love performing in front of big crowds and so it is very encouraging for us to see how fast the tickets are selling. The Twenty20 format has been very successful on a domestic level in South Africa in recent seasons so it is no real surprise that people will want to go to watch the world’s top players in action.
“The countdown to the ICC World Twenty20 is very much on now and I get the sense that there is a real momentum building now and it has already caught the public’s imagination here in South Africa,” he said.
