Tigers grouped with India, Pakistan in T20 WC
Bangladesh have been placed in the same group with India and Pakistan as the fixtures for the upcoming T20 World Cup were announced today.
Australia will host the 16-nation tournament, which begins on October 16 with a six-day preliminary stage of two four-team groups where Sri Lanka and Namibia in Group A, and West Indies and Scotland in Group B will be joined by four qualifiers yet to be determined.
The top two teams from both Group A and Group B will move forward to join Bangladesh and the other seven automatically qualified nations in the Super 12 stage.
England, New Zealand, Australia and Afghanistan have been drawn together in Group 1 while India, Pakistan, South Africa and Bangladesh are clubbed in Group 2.
The arch-rivals Pakistan and India will lock horns at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on October 23, a day after Australia begin their title defence against New Zealand in Sydney.
The final of the mega event will be played at the MCG on November 13.
