They are the 10 governing bodies of the ICC and known as "test teams" and they are automatic entries into the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup. These 10 teams are split up by the ICC into four groups.

As I said in my previous answer, Zings, the new high-tech LED stumps, are very costly. The entire set-up during a match costs US$ 40,000. That's why Bronte EcKermann, the inventor of Zings doesn't allow players to uproot them after winning the match. He also denied to take them even after winning the final. But as an exception he said that he will allow MS ...

When India and Pakistan's match went for tie in the first T20 world cup, Bowl-Out method was used to break the tie. Then, the super-over method was introduced to replace bowl-out method in 2008.

The seedings are based on the rankings of the each of the participating nation at the cut off point. The seeding is done so that teams entering the next round (irrespective of where they finish) know which venue they will be headed to. The main reason this was done was for the fans.

All the World Cup 2015 matches will be live streamed on Star Sports official website for a very small & affordable & worthy subscription fee.

No. The reasons for a no ball are listed in Law 24 (and the subsidiary bits mentioned in Law 24.9) and do not include "fielder not in the field of play". In theory, Law 2, Section 6 says that: If a player comes on to the field of play [without permission of the umpires] and comes into contact with the ball while it is in play, (a) the ball shall ...

Answering your main question: Why some of matches remains tie and some goes to superover? The decision of keeping the match tie or go for tie breaker like Super Over depends on a particular series. Mostly, tie breaker is used in the series between more than two countries like any ICC world events, continent tournaments like Asia cup etc. Regarding your ...

"Tossing the ball up" is also know as "flighting the ball" wherein the ball is bowled at more inclined trajectory. The reason spinners toss the ball up is to induce a false shot from the batsman to get him out. If the ball is bowled with a higher revolution count, then it dips & bounces much earlier than the batsman normally expects. Thus if the ...

This seems to be for Indian Players only because the BCCI has decided that players who have represented India in one Under-19 World Cup cannot take part in another edition of the tournament, even if they meet the age criteria to do so. Apart from this, the BCCI also passed a rule that players can only play a maximum of two season of Under-19 cricket. This ...

The run rate should always be calculated according to the actual number of overs involved. NRR will be calculated by number of overs batted (not how many were allocated at the start), RRR will be calculated by number of overs remaining (not how many would have been remaining if there were no reductions). This means too that if a team is bowled out in fewer ...

Reserve day is used only if the match is not completed even after applying the D/L method. So if it is not possible to complete full quota of the innings (i.e. 20 overs in T20 matches), the D/L method is applied which requires minimum 5 overs to be played per side in T20 matches. That means if both teams play minimum 5 overs each, the match will be ...
