Let us enjoy the live cricket streaming on Star Sports and live telecast on Sony Six.

ICC World T20 Cup 2014 Final Live on Star Sports


Here we are! Here comes the big one! The final of ICC World T20 cup 2014. After a long exciting tournament which was full of uncertainties and high quality cricket, now we are down the wire for the grand final. Indian fans can again enjoy the live streaming and TV telecast on Star Sports.

This time instead of previewing the two teams, we would just go down the memory lane and revisit the earlier finals of all the T20 World Cup editions. Let us go for it! Join us down the memory lane.

2007 T20 World Cup final
Hosted by South Africa, the inaugural T20 World Cup turned out to be a huge success. The cricket fans wholeheartedly accepted this shortened format of their favourite game. Cricket was never so colourful. India played the arch rivals Pakistan in the finals at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. 

India batted first and scored a decent 157 runs. This score looked small when Misbah was going great. But one glitch in the end by Misbah when he handed over a lollipop catch to Sreesanth, costed Pakistan the cup. India won it by 5 runs and that started the Dhoni era for Indian cricket.

2009 T20 World Cup final
This final was played at the home ground of cricket viz. the Lord's in London. Again two Asian teams reached the finals with Pakistan being lucky enough to qualify for the second consecutive time. They faced Sri Lanka.

Batting first Sri Lanka scored 138 runs only. In return, Pakistan didn't do any mistake this time. They chased the target comfortably with 8 balls to spare and at a loss of just two wickets.

2010 T20 World Cup final
50 over world cup was planned to be playe din 2011. So the T20 world cup was preponed and played in 2010. West Indies hosted this colourful event this time. England faced Australia in the final match.

Batting first Australia could score just 147 runs. England made it look very easy by chasing the total in 17 overs. That was England's first ever ICC event title which blowed new life into the English cricket.

2012 T20 World Cup final
2009 runner ups Sri Lanka hosted this edition of T20 World Cup. Sri Lanka played well to qualify for the finals in front of their home crowd. They faced the hard hitting T20 West Indies team at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

West Indies scored 130 plus and it seemed Sri Lanka would chase it easily. But some spirited bowling from West Indies resulted in a dismal batting by Sri Lanka. They were bowled out for just 101 runs. West Indies lifted the trophy.

Hope you all enjoyed this short yet sweet stroll down the memory lane of the T20 World Cup finals.

Who will win the T20 world cup 2014 is a big question! We would prefer to enjoy quality cricket and let the best team win. Your thoughts?

India vs South Africa 2nd Semis - Star Sports Live Streaming Information

T20 World Cup Star Sports Live Streaming Info

India will take on South Africa in the second semi finals of the ICC World T20 cup. On one hand we have an Indian team that has shined under pressure during ICC events. On the other hand we have South Africa that has always crumbled during the knock out stages of ICC events. Can India capitalise on this weakness of South Africa remains a question because every game is a new story in cricket. Star Sports will provide live streaming and telecast of India vs South Africa semi final today. Enjoy live cricket telecast in Hindi and English on Star Sports channels 1, 2, 3 and HD1 and HD2.

We found an interesting article on ESPN Cricinfo which very well describes the path to semis for both the teams. Generally South African team is known to play comprehensively well in the group stages. But this time they played like one of the Asian teams who qualify to the semi finals but with a lot of hardships. On the other hand India has never had such a smooth transition to the semi finals. You can blame them for one sided boring matches but that is how they have purely dominated the oppositions. 

As far as the performances so far are concerned, India clearly has an upper hand. But South African cricket team in itself is a big name. They are known for a tough fight. Based on the conditions here in Bangladesh, one has easily read that spinners are the most effective players. And Indians are know to posses quality spinners. Mishra, Ashwin and Jadeja are doing a great job already. Meanwhile South Africa has to rely on Taahir in spin and Steyn in the pace department.

Indian cricket fans would love to know that the team has never lost a semi final under MS Dhoni's captaincy. But one thing they would be wary about it South Africa's one and only semi final (and final) win came in Bangladesh in 1998. So they may repeat the feat or they might again fall prey to the pressure and India may qualify.

It all depends on how the teams would perform today. On paper South Africa is a strong team but tacticaly Indian team looks favourite to win today. Another factor that may affect today's match could be the weather. If it rains whole day today, India will qualify for the finals based on the group stage performance. Enjoy the match and keep loving cricket.
