India's T20 World Cup Campaign

It doesn't get bigger than this...

ICC T20 Men's World Cup 2009

We didn't realise when the IPL got over and the World Cup started. Yes, it's a packed cricketing calendar for the year. The cricketers are being over exerted, audiences over-fed with cricket. But who is complaining...

It's a treat for cricket lovers here in India with the defending champions Team India battling it out to retain their 'World Champions' tag. India has started off on the right note in the tournament so far successfully handling their league encounters and making a way to the Super 8s. It becomes interesting from hereon as India will face stiff competition from tournament favorites like South Africa and New Zealand.

M.S. Dhoni will have to ensure that his boys are in the best of shape for this crucial tournament which if India wins will further cement their position as undisputed Kings of Twenty20 Cricket.
