ICC WT20 2016 group 1 preview - Cricket World TV

In his latest video news report from India, Chetan Narula takes a look through each of the five teams battling to get out of group 1 of the ICC World Twenty20 2016.

Afghanistan, England, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the West Indies are the teams involved and three of them (England, Sri Lanka, West Indies) are former champions.

Can Afghanistan, who saw off Hong Kong, Scotland and Zimbabwe to qualify spring a surprise and mix things up a bit?

Sri Lanka might seem vulnerable, unable to call on the likes of Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara, with Lasith Malinga injured and a late change of captain hindering their build-up.

2012 champions West Indies never be discounted due to the power their squad possesses, and England's new brand of aggressive cricket has won them plenty of plaudits.

South Africa might, as Chetan puts it, always have been the bridesmaid and never the bride, but could 2016 be their year?
