The team has qualified for its first world cup in the year 2007. As the team and their cricket board is not so developed, so the players have been just introduced to their first contracts.It is also not a permanent team for the ODI matches, but keeping in view some of its good performances, it can be said that Ireland is going to try very hard in order to make a name for itself among the top cricket teams in the world.
This team has seen many ups and downs in the course of its international matches. But it would be pretty stupid to consider this team as one of the underdog teams who would be playing in thet20 world cup. Till now the team has won 72 matches in the domain of ODI’s and 4 of the t20matches.
8. New Zealand
The person who is going to lead the team in t20 world cup is Ross Taylor. There were times when the team was ranked among the top teams in the world, but in the past few years the scenario has changed a bit. The team has won a total of 268 ODI matches out of its 620 matches.The winning percentage for the team in the t20 matches is nearly 50 % as it has won 24 out of its50 matches.
7. West Indies
Now here we have the winner of 2 word cups and a number of other tournaments. But keeping in view its present performances it has been ranked on the number 7th spot. The winning percentage of the ream is also 50 % as asserted by the latest statistics. Surely, the team has given some good performances in the past t20 world cups, so who knows whether West Indies would be able to make it to the top.
Do not get surprised to see this team at the number 6th spot, as the T20 stats tell a very different story based on the past performances of this team in the domain of the T20 matches. Although Australia has won the ODI world cup 4 times, but its T20 performances have been not been up tote mark.
5. Sri Lanka
Keeping in view the previous performances and game play of the team in the ODI’s and T20matches, the winning percentage of the team is less than 50 %. But what made this team qualify for the number 5th spot, are the latest T20 ratings issued by ICC. Yes, the ICC ratings can be biased, but they are relied on by a large number of people.
Pakistan has won the T20 world cup once and is all loaded to grab a new one. All the stats and figures on the performances of the team clearly depict that Pakistan has the potential to be at the top.

Furthermore, the team has also won the last ODI would cup. In the year 2007, they had also won the T20 world cup.
The latest ICC rankings assert that England is on the number 1st spot in the ODI and on the number 2nd in terms of test match and T20 performances. In the previous T20 world cup the team has been able to make it to the super 8 stage and has also won the world cup in the year 2010.There is a high certainty that this year England has some bright chances for winning the trophy.
