  1. Winner of this match will win the trophy. It's tough to predict the result of a match between the two power hitting T20 teams, I'm inclined towards West Indies. I've £200 on West Indies.

  2. Selectors, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli are doing biggest mistake of their lives by favoring Yuvraj Singh who has not performed since his return after winning the battle with cancer. He should be replaced by Ajinkya Rahane. He has served the country for good now time has come to move on and give chance to other hungry talented players.
