Australia captain Steve Smith says David Warner will not have a fixed position in the batting order at the World T20 after he was successfully employed at number four against South Africa.
Usually an opening batsman, Warner got scores of 20, 77 and 33 when he came in to bat in the middle-order in the three-match series against the Proteas.
The Aussies used three different opening combinations with Usman Khawaja, Shane Watson and Aaron Finch all being rotated but Smith has not ruled out Warner once again batting at the top of the order.
Afghanistan qualified for the Super 10 stage of the World T20 when they emphatically beat Zimbabwe by 59 runs in their winner takes all Group B clash in Nagpur on Saturday.
The Asian side won toss and posted a formidable total of 186 for six batting first thanks to a half-century from Mohammad Nabi (52) and 43 from Samiullah Shenwari.
The Afghanistan duo shared in a record fifth wicket stand of 98 after Zimbabwe reduced their opponents to 63 for four after eight overs.
Ireland were knocked out at the first round of the World T20 on Friday after their game against Bangladesh was abandoned due to rain after only eight overs were possible in the first innings.
The Irish, who needed to win to stay in the tournament after their shock loss to Oman on Wednesday, won the toss and elected to field first in the 12-over match after persistent rain caused the start to be delayed.
The Tigers were 94 for two after opening batsman Tamim Iqbal 47 off just 26 balls, including three fours and four sixes, before he was caught at midwicket off the bowling of left-arm spinner George Dockrell.
Spinner Adam Zampa says he is excited to be part of Australia's squad for the World T20 in India but knows their will be no let up against quality batsman.
The 23-year-old South Australia bowler played in two games in the Aussies' two-one series win against South Africa and bowled accurately in the middle-overs, returning figures of none for 26 and none for 23 while bowling his full compliment of overs.
A right-arm leg-break bowler, Zampa says there is no secret to what he does when he bowls as he just tries to keep things simple.
Netherlands captain Peter Borren said the Dutch dressing room was 'pretty emotional' and devastated after their rained out match against Oman on Friday meant they were knocked out of the World T20 in the first round.
Oman won the toss and elected to field first but persistent rain forced the game to be abandoned without a ball being bowled.
The Dutch lost their opening Group A match, an eight-run reverse to Bangladesh on Wednesday, and now found themselves out of the running for a spot in the Super 10 stage of the tournament even though they have one game, against Ireland, still to play.
South Africa batsman David Miller feels plenty of batting records will be broken during the World T20 as most players are experienced in the shortest format of game.
The global tournament will be played on batting friendly wickets in India and Miller says that and all the domestic T20 tournaments around the world will give batsmen the edge.
Miller said on arrival in India: "Definitely, this World T20 will see lot of records being smashed and new ones coming up.
Najam Sethi, chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board executive committee, has confirmed that the national side will travel to India after getting security assurances from the West Bengal government.
Pakistan's game against host nation India, scheduled for 19 March, has already been shifted from Dharamsala to Kolkata for the same security reasons.
A three-man delegation, headed Pakistan's interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Khan, was sent to their neighbouring Asian country to check on security arrangements and gave the all clear.
The Netherlands were forced to watch their World Twenty20 hopes wash away on Friday as their qualifying match against Oman in Dharamsala was washed out without a ball bowled.
Oman, who beat Ireland earlier in the week, still stand a chance of topping the group and reaching the Super 10 stage, but the Dutch, who lost to Bangladesh, are out of the running.
Only one team from each group can qualify for the next round, which features the top eight sides in the format, and as it stands, it is likely to be the Tigers who take that berth from this group.
South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis has warned his middle order that if they don't perform in the World Twenty20 warm up games, he'll be happy to use Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers, and Quinton de Kock in the same line up.
As it stands, the Proteas are struggling to fit their three best batsmen in the same XI, as all three prefer to open in T20s. But Du Plessis says he's happy to use one of them lower down if needed.
The likes of Farhaan Behardien, JP Duminy, and Rilee Rossouw have been underwhelming in recent months, partly contributing to the Proteas' recent 2-1 series loss to Australia as the top order had little help.
The Wankhede Stadium is still getting ready for the ICC World T20 2016, as most of the stands have the tournament billboards decking them, apart from a couple to the West.
But a few fans turned up to watch the warm-up encounter between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. The excitement is only gradually building, as New Zealand eased to a 74-run victory, but the crowd did have its moments.
Colin Munro and Corey Anderson’s entertaining knocks set the stage alight and once Sri Lanka failed to overhaul a huge 227-run target, a practice Super Over made it a little better for those who came to watch.
Australia coach Darren Lehmann says he is fairly sure about what his best XI is as they head to the World Twenty20 in India, though the opening batsman combination could change with each game.
The Aussies go to India on the back of a two-one series win against South Africa, and there they used opener David Warner in the middle order to good effect. This was to try and get Shane Watson and Usman Khawaja in the side, as well as Aaron Finch.
Like the Proteas, who have a similar dilemma in that Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, and AB de Villiers all like to open, Australia have a glut of top order stars. But Lehmann feels Warner is doing well down the order, for now.
