Still no takers, oh dear

Original question:
JK,R / LH,J / AR,I / JA,V / IS,G / DH,I / LA,I / __,_ / __,_

Look at an annual event
This year's took place yesterday (7th December)

Updated question: JK,R / LH,J / AR,I / JA,V / IS,G / DH,I / LA,I / __,_ / __,_ /AD,N / AA,T

What are the missing letters - it is a sequence

I've just been catching up on the news with Teletext and there was an item about the Miss World contest, held yesterday and won by a Miss A.... A.... of Turkey. So with the help of Google I think I can fill in the blanks as

YM, I (Yukta Mookhey, India (Miss World 1999)).
PC, I (Priyanka Chopra, India (Miss World 2000))

Strewth! Very impressive, TabbyTom. The date threw me; I was thinking of Pearl Harbour...

Can you supply the missing member of this group? It could also be seen as a sequence, in which case A and E would be equal first.

A, E, SA, WI, NZ, I, P, SL, Z, ?

Any chance that the missing one would be B for Bangladesh??

I think the other ones would be Australia, England, South Africa, West-Indies, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe, all full member countries of the International Cricket Council...

It looks like a list of Shakespeare's tragedies, so I'll go for R & J (Romeo and Juliet).
