The World T20 is drawing near as all the teams are geared up to play the competitive cricket to get adequate practice and game time ahead of the tournament.
Indian Skipper MS Dhoni felt that his side is among the top contenders to win the coveted trophy. He said that there are always competitive in shorter formats such as T20 and ODIs.He feels that they will be tough to beat in Indian conditions and said the format provides unpredictability as all teams can win the top prize.The side currently lacks a big hitter and lower order frailty can prove to be a shortcoming as there have not been able to replace the players like
Yuvraj Singh who performed consistently for India for a long time.India has recently won T20 series over Sri Lanka and completed a commanding performance against Australia overseas.Players like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are rich rein of form as they produced consistently big scores in the format for bowlers to defend competitive totals.
The Indian Premier League exposure and the lot playing shorter formats with more frequency could prove to be Indian team’s strong point in the tournament.
The arrival of pacer Bumrah is good omen for the team as they desperately needed a wicket-taking option due to out of form bowlers like Ishant Sharma and Bhuveneshar KumarThe premier spinner Ravi Ashwin is going to be the main trump card for the team with Ravendra Jadeja providing adequate support as a second fiddle
All will boil down to the performance of fast bowlers and late order if India manages to go all the way to win World T20 for the second time after triumph in the inaugural event held in 2007 in South Africa.
