The T20 fever has taken over the entire world as the 20-20 World Cup has announced its arrival in grand style on Sunday. The mega event will see 16 teams fighting amongst themselves for the ultimate T20 glory. Australia being the hosts and defending champions are the favourites to win the competition.
There’s no tournament in cricket where India doesn’t go in as one of the contenders for the title. The ‘Men-in-Blue’ might not be in the best of forms heading into the World Cup but underestimating their potential can be dangerous for the opposition. With just one week to go in India’s opening encounter, let’s take a look at three reasons which make India a strong contender for the 20-20 World Cup:
1 Being No 1 T20I side
The ‘Men in Blue’ are ranked at no one spot in the T20I rankings which is a testament to their consistent performance in the past year. They have not lost a single series in the past year beating teams like New Zealand, England, Australia and South Africa heading into the World Cup. The vast experience of the youngsters playing in the Indian T20 League cannot be forgotten as well.
