You just knew the 2012 ICC World T20 would explode into frenzy as the Super Eights came about. Eight teams in the fray and all of them near equal, with any advantages diminished by the cruelty of this format. This will probably be mega last-ten-days to the tournament, weather permitting, of course.
That the stage got off to a flyer with a Super Over between Sri Lanka and New Zealand only added to the excitement, what with the host nation coming to a stand-still in hope of victory. While the West Indies-England game followed the same slam-bang script, there is a marked difference in how the matches panned out in Pallekele and Colombo.
