Star Sports Live Streaming Info in India
We hope you all are enjoying this edition of T20 World Cup which has had all kinds of uncertainties. We saw teams like New Zealand or Pakistan that kicked off well but ultimately got eliminated. We also saw some spirited performances from a team like England which lately failed against a team like Netherlands. We saw an out of form Indian team completely dominating the oppositions so far. And now we see last World Cup's finalists West Indies and Sri Lanka facing each other in the first Semi final of the ICC World T20 cup 2014. Star Sports 1, 2, 3 and HD channels will provide live telecast while one in India can also enjoy live streaming on Star Sports site.
Srilanka kicked off very well with couple of wins in the warm ups followed by good wins against South Africa and Netherlands. Their unbelievable loss against England brought them under pressure as they landed themselves in a do or die affair against New Zealand. With another good display of spin bowling from Herath and company, Srilanka managed to beat New Zealand comfortably and qualify for the semi finals. They stood first in Group 1 ahead of South Africa. Hence they will face second ranked team of Group 2 which is defending champions West Indies. Ranked one team in Group 2 India will face South Africa in the second semi final.
West Indies have had similar story. They lost to India which happened to be their only loss. Hence even they locked horns against Pakistan in the decider for semi finalists. West Indies defeated Pakistan very similar to the way Sri Lanka thumped New Zealand.
With lot of similarities in terms of performances and team composition, we are set to have a great semi final ahead. Srilanka boasts its success with the presence of unplayable Malinga. On the other hand West Indies can rely on Gayle's hitting. As well all know teams with good spinners have succeeded in this world cup. Hence West Indies and Srilanka can both rely on their quality spinners that include Badree, Narine, Herath and Mendis.
We have another great match to follow after this which would be India vs South Africa. So stay with us for more such previews, reviews and updates on ICC World T20 cup 2014.
