T20 World Cup 2014 Schedule

The ICCT20 World Cup 2014 marked the 5th anniversary of the much speculated cricket championship. The event commenced on March 16 and concluded on April 6. Bangladesh had the esteemed honor of playing the host nation here- the Bangla nation is the 2nd Asian nation to host the World T20 championship, after Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is the new ICC T20 World Cup champion who defeated the inaugural T20 World champ India by six wickets. 35 matches were played altogether with the inaugural match starting on March 16. It was played between Bangladesh & Afghanistan at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium where the host country won by nine wickets. The first semi-final match was played on April 3 between Sri Lanka & West Indies where the Lankan nation won by 27 runs. The second semi-final was played on April 4 between India & South Africa where the latter won by six wickets. The final match was played on April 6 between Sri Lanka and India where the island country won by 6 wickets. All the semi-finals and final matches were held at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Dhaka.

Team venues
The ICC World T20 2014 matches were played across 3 major stadiums in Bangladesh- Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (Dhaka), Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (Chittagong) and Sylhet Divisional Stadium (Sylhet). 

The teams
The ICC t20 World Cup 2014 is the first time that the championship was contested with 16 teams instead of 12 teams like the earlier 2012 season. 4 new teams were added this year including Nepal, UAE, Hong Kong & Netherlands. Among the 16 teams participated, 8 were directly qualified for the Super 10 stage. These teams are England, Australia, Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, West Indies, New Zealand and South Africa. The remaining 8 qualified for Group stage are Bangladesh, Hong Kong, Zimbabwe, Ireland, Nepal, UAE, Afghanistan and Netherlands.

Team & stages

Super 10 stage
Apart from the 8 teams who directly qualified for the Super 10 stage, the other two members who competed and won the qualification are Netherlands and Bangladesh. The other 4 teams – UAE, Hong Kong and Nepal could not reach beyond the Group Stage.

Knockout stage/Semi-final
The ICC T20 World 2014 squads that were able to reach the knockout stage were India, Sri Lanka, West Indies and South Africa. These 4 were the semifinalists among which India and Sri Lanka were the finalists defeating South Africa and West Indies respectively. Ironically, it was Sri Lanka that was defeated by West Indies in 2012 T20 World final which was reversed in the 2014 semi-final.  One of the most remarkable features of the t20 World 2014 semi-final was Indian captain Dhoni letting a younger Virat Kohli take up the winning run at the last semi-final against South Africa- Dhoni’s generous take has been tagged as one of the most extraordinary gestures in the history of cricket. 

Final stage
In the final match, India came up with a meager score of 130 runs that was fast picked up by Sri Lanka and the island nation won the final by 6 wickets. It was a maiden victory for Sri Lanka. 

Man of the match
The man of the match in ICC T20 World Cup 2014 final was ace Lankan player Kumar Sangakkara.

Man of the series
The man of the series in ICC T20 World Cup 2014 final was Indian star Virat Kohli.
