Cricinfo's headline seems a bit harsh on WI and Ireland, ahead of tonight/tomorrow morning's match.
Thinking a bit further, it would seem to be just as slack to NZ and SL. Just what does count as the real deal in this tournament?
I'm still not convinced Australia (the team) sees the tournament as a whole as the real deal, but they could pull off a fair bit if the bowlers fire.
The whole thing doesn't seem too predictable - partly because of the format, but also because international T20 is still pretty rare.
