ICC T20 World Cup is all set to start from 17th October 2021 where qualifiers will be played and later the main event will start in a week’s time in UAE where top teams will be competing against each other under one roof for the precious title.
T20 is an unpredictable game and there are no favorites in T20 but to be honest considering the past form of few teams it can be predicted easily who will be the top 4 teams that will be competing in the semifinal of the marquee event. Let us reveal the possible predicted top 4 in detail.
- England: The three Lions are certainly one of the favorites to lift the title with the kind of bench strength and firepower they have in their lineup. The team is led by 2019 World Cup-winning skipper Eoin Morgan who knows his players inside out. The team was supposed to be nowhere till the 2015 World Cup but they have transformed their game after the mega event and possibly became the powerhouse in T20 Cricket. The likes of Jos Butler, Johnny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Chris Woakes, and Liam Livingstone make an ideal team for the mega contest.
- India: Men in Blue under the leadership of Virat Kohli is certainly one of the top contenders to lift the title based on their record in limited over format where they have challenged several teams in their own backyard. The likes of Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammad Shami adds lot of flexibility in the squad. Many experts have predicted that pitch will behave slow in UAE conditions which will benefit the Indian team who have five specialist spinner in their lineup for the upcoming clash.
- West Indies: Defending Champions West Indies are one of the possible contenders to lift the T20 World Cup 2021. The Caribbean team has several power hitters in their lineup which include Kieron Pollard, Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, and Dwayne Bravo this team is full of superstars who can give tough time to any team in UAE conditions.
- Afghanistan: Many people would not agree with this but Afghanistan is certainly the dark horses who can possibly lift the title. They have likes of Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rehman and Mohammad Nabi in their lineup who have enough experience of playing in UAE conditions and playing in global T20 leagues in all over the world. I would not be surprised if they win the title of T20 World Cup 2021.
