T20 World Cup Squads: 16 teams are participating in the T20 World Cup starting next month in Australia. These teams were supposed to inform the ICC about their respective squads by 15 September, but so far only eight teams have been able to do so. The other 8 teams are yet to choose their 15-member squad. The Pakistan team will announce its squad by this evening, but it is difficult to say anything about the remaining 7 teams. In such a situation, it is expected that if even these 7 teams are not able to choose their team till tonight, then the deadline can be extended.
