The 2012 ICC World Twenty20 Tournament is underway!
The craze that has captured the eye of the world with its exciting play and go for broke shot-making has transformed the game from a snooze fest into a match where you can't even miss a single moment. You could blink and won't know when the ball got launched into the upper decks for a Six, nor can you say when the batsman's stumps are going to start flying in different directions as he tries to go for too much.

Athletes and celebrities alike are also fans of the newest version of Cricket as evidenced by the surge in popularity of the IPL. The ICC World Twenty/20 tournament is the premiere event to enjoy the spectacle and should not be missed!

For the next three weeks in Sri Lanka, between September 18th-October 7th, there will be twelve countries vying to stake the claim as the very best in the world.

The twelve teams will be separated into four groups, play a round robin format, then advance onto the quarterfinal round robin, on to a semifinal sudden death, and if they are lucky enough to survive they play one match where everything is on the line to crown the champion.

We will look at each team, make bold predictions, and tell you what you need to know so you can get the most out of the tournament as you watch the saga unfold.
