Pakistani team in qualifiers

         


   The schedule, announced on Friday, has ten teams split in two groups, with the top two in each group making the semifinals. Eight teams have been seeded directly into the main competition and will be joined by two of the five qualifiers.The ECB's announcement that no teams from England will take part in this year's competition has opened up slots for other domestic competitions.Trinidad & Tobago find a place in the main draw, after sustained public pressure following strong performances in previous seasons. They had finished runners-up in the inaugural edition in 2009, and won Qualifiers in 2011 and 2012 to secure their berth.One of those qualifiers is Faisalabad Wolves, who recently won the Faysal Bank Super Eight T20 Cup; their participation in the tournament will be interesting given the fragile diplomatic and sporting ties between India and Pakistan.
