Hence, with the tournament already exhibiting itself with the teams that can beat any opponent on any given day, let’s see-
Rating the teams ahead of T20 World Cup 2021
1. India (9/10)
By already being very well equipped before the mega event, undoubtedly the Indian team is one of the very few sides that has enough depth and resources to uplift their second T20I title. Both in terms of their batting and bowling, skipper Virat Kohli has a variety to choose from, however, the team management will also be aiming that both their front-line all-rounders (Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja) are also firing on all cylinders before the start of the tournament.
Now especially coming to the batting department, players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, and Ravindra Jadeja will be the chief front-line players who will definitely start in the playing XI. But with an everlasting vacancy for the number four slot along with a strangled opening position does eventually brings players like KL Rahul and Suryakumar to the utmost fore.
Overall, the batting line-up certainly looks havoc that can devastate many bowling attacks but especially with the lower-middle order being much acclimatized to through-the-line hitting, possibly some sluggish wickets can pose them a different set of challenges. However in totality even in this scenario players like both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli along with Suryakumar Yadav are well versed to stitch up a triumph.
Further in terms of bowling, both Bhuvi and the death bowling maestro Jasprit Bumrah will be the first latched names into team sheets along with Yuzi Chahal who looks to have reinvigorated himself at the recently concluded Sri Lankan tour. However, both the duo of Rahul Chahar and Shardul Thakur will certainly flash themselves with their renowned penchant of being the hefty scalpers along with T Natarajan who might dwell himself in the playing XI merely because of his left-arm proposition. Overall while the other likes of Mohammad Shami, Deepak Chahar, and Varun Chakravarthy will race amongst themselves for the final fifteen selections, the Indian team at present certainly has a blockbuster contingent to end their drought of the ICC events.
