My World Twenty20 predictions

Adam Mountford | 18:32 PM, Wednesday, 17 June 2009

After a highly eventful 12 days at Trent Bridge, the Oval and Lord's the ICC World Twenty20 is reaching its climax over the next few days with the semi-finals and finals in both the men's and women's competition.

BBC Radio will have ball-by-ball commentary on all the remaining six games starting with the first women's semi-final between New Zealand and India from Trent Bridge on Thursday with Five Live Sports Extra's coverage starting at 1245 BST.

Then join Jonathan Agnew and Arlo White on Five Live Sports Extra and Radio Four long wave from 1715 BST for commentary on Pakistan against the favourites South Africa.

Geoff Lawson, who coached Pakistan to the final of the competition two years ago, will be part of our team at Trent Bridge.

Then on Friday the Oval hosts two semi-finals starting with the mouth-watering clash between England and Australia in the women's competition.

As you may have read in Alison Mitchell's blog - although England are still favourites to add the World Twenty20 title to their World Cup crown it could be a difficult semi-final for Charlotte Edwards and her team with England having lost their last three games against the old enemy.

England all-rounder Rosalie Birch will be part of our commentary team on Five Live Sports Extra from 1245.

Then it's the second men's semi-final with Sri Lanka taking on England's conquerors the West Indies with coverage on Five Live Sports Extra and Radio Four Long Wave from 1715 BST.

Jonathan Agnew and Tony Cozier will be providing commentary with summarisers including Phil Tufnell and Ian Bishop.

Then on Sunday it's finals day with our coverage getting under way from 1000 BST on Five Live Sports Extra and Radio Four long wave for the women's final.

Jonathan Agnew and Alison Mitchell lead our team for ball-by-ball commentary with former England women's captain Rachael Heyhoe-Flint one of our summarisers.

Then the men's final will be live over on Five Live as part of a fantastic day of sports coverage.

The World Twenty20 final follows commentary on the British Grand Prix from around 1500 BST with Jonathan Agnew and Arlo White leading our team.

BBC Two will have highlights on Thursday, Friday and Sunday evening with coverage of the final following the last episode of the excellent BBC documentary "The Empire of Cricket" from 2200 BST.

Let's hope the final lives up to the thrilling climax to the inaugural tournament with India defeating Pakistan in the last over of the match.

Of course we don't know yet who'll be featuring on Sunday. But for what it's worth, here is my uneducated prediction for you to disagree with.

I think Pakistan will spring a surprise at Trent Bridge on Thursday and defeat the favourites South Africa.

I know Graeme Smith's side have looked unstoppable so far but I just think they could be due for an off-day and if they are, then Pakistan could be the side to benefit.

They have such a varied bowling attack with the likes of Shahid Afridi and of course one of the bowlers of the tournament Umar Gul.

Then I think Sri Lanka will finally end the run of the West Indies at the Oval. Sri Lanka are also unbeaten but I think they have already had their off-day against Ireland but still managed to come through with a win.

Plus the variety in Sri Lanka's bowling attack makes Pakistan's look almost predictable with two mystery spinners in Murali and Mendis, Malinga the slinger and the number one ranked one-day bowler in the world Nuwan Kulasekara.

Then I tip Sri Lanka to edge Pakistan at Lord's in the final.

But as I say my predictions are normally entirely wrong so I wouldn't rush down to the bookmakers on my recommendations!

I just hope we get some cracking matches to give the tournament an exciting conclusion - and I hope you'll join us for our coverage.
