After falling at the final hurdle in the West Indies two years ago, Australia  will be looking to win a maiden World T20 title when the 2012 edition of the tournament starts on September 18 in Sri Lanka . Despite being one of the best One Day International teams in recent years, Australia has seemingly underachieved in the shortest form of the game, with a semi-final appearance in 2009 the only other time they have reached the last four in the event.

Defending champion England  has had mixed results in the 20 over game since being crowned champions in 2010 but will not want to relinquish the only world trophy that they have ever held, without a fight. Inaugural tournament winners India  will be sure to put up a good fight with their host of IPL stars leading the way, while AB de Villiers will lead a South African  side that has developed the unwanted reputation of being ‘chokers’ on the big stage.

The West Indies  last won a World Cup in 1979, when One Day Internationals were played with 60 overs per team, but have a great chance of lifting the trophy this time around. They have developed a strong allround side which has been built around master blaster Chris Gayle and mystery spinner Sunil Narine.

TattsBet will be offering LIVE betting on each match throughout the tournament on 13 19 39.
