India’s 1 run win against Bangladesh seems to have got the team and tournament back on track and with the likes of Kholi and Dhoni they have a real chance of winning the tournament.
West Indies and England take the top two spots in Group 2 to secure their semi final spots. West Indies had a suprise loss to Afghanistan in their final match, never the less they still qualify top of the group and with the spin attack of Bandree and Benn, coupled with the powerful batting of Gayle are deserved group winners. England take second spot and are gaining momentum, having lost their opening fixture against the West Indies, England chased down a massive 230 to beat South Africa in their second match. Since then they are unbeaten and secured a semi final spot with a 10 run victory over Sri Lanka.
