Former Australian ace spinner Shane Warne recently revealed his two favorite teams England and India who is most likely to win ICC T20 World Cup 2021. He also mentioned New Zealand and Australia as the dark horses who can give tough time to any teams in the marquee event.
He further added that Kane Williamson and Company have surprised several teams in ICC tournaments as Blackcaps have recently won the ICC World Test Championship final in 2021 after beating India by eight wickets. Australia needs their key players like David Warner to come back in form as he has an attacking instinct and once he is in a song he can destroy any bowling attack in the world.
I think Eng & India have to go in as fav’s for the T/20 WC. NZ always perform well in @ICC events too. But I have a feeling the Aussies are being underestimated as they have a lot of match winners in their squad. Then you have Pakistan & the Wi. Excited to see who will win 🏆

Warne’s comment about India came after watching Men in Blue performance in two warm-up games that they have played against England and Australia and outclass these two opponents by seven and eight wickets respectively.
India will be kick-starting their campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 24th, 2021 in Dubai and next they will be facing Black Caps and Afghanistan on 31st October and 3rd November respectively.
Other teams like Pakistan, Afghanistan, West Indies, and Bangladesh are certainly the dark horses and can reach the semifinal of marquee event too.
West Indies being defending champions in 2016, has loads of power hitters in their lineup who can quickly change the crux of the game. The Caribbean lineup for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021 has several T20 stars which include match-winners like Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, and Chris Gayle who can give nightmare to other bowling attacks before even the match is played on the ground.
