Who will win T20 World Cup 2021?

T20 is the most exciting format of the game and one that is filled with uncertainty. We have already seen five different winners in the six editions of the tournament. There have been teams like India, Pakistan and West Indies that have produced consistent performances in this tournament while others have largely been in the periphery. However, this format of the game is always known to throw its surprises and here we look at the past performances of the side which might have a clue into their prospects in this edition of the tournament.

# Scotland

They have played in three previous editions of the tournament but never gone beyond the 1st Round.  But Kyle Coetzer’s side would be one to watch out for in this edition as most of their players have done well in the last couple of years in different T20 leagues. They have a group of good T20 players that include the likes of Matthew Cross, Callum MacLeod, Tom Sole, Matthew Cross and Alasdair Evans and good performances would be expected from them.

# Netherlands

This will be the 4th appearance for the side in this tournament and captain Pieter Seelaar would have his eyes set on the qualification into Round 2 of the tournament. They come here as the winners of the 2019 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier and there would be lots of expectations from the side which has players like Ben Cooper, Max O’Dowd and Roelof van der Merwe who have proved their talent in recent games.

# Oman

The side had debuted in the 2016 edition of the tournament and had registered its first win in the tournament. However, this wasn’t enough to take them to the next round. They were knocked out in the semi-final playoffs during the 2019 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier, but Zeeshan Maqsood’s side did show good promise during the tournament. The side would hope to see the likes of Aqib Illyas, Sandeep Goud and Suraj Kumar delivering in this tournament.

# Ireland

They were one of the powerhouses among the minnows and have constantly done well in the ICC tournaments. They have played in all editions of the tournament barring the inaugural season and would be one of the sides to watch out for. Andrew Balbirnie would like his side to make it to the 2nd Round and he would count on the likes of Paul Stirling, Kevin O’Brien, Gareth Delany, Boyd Rankin and Harry Tector to work the magic for the side.

# Papua New Guinea

This will be the first appearance for the side in the ICC T20 World Cup and this would be a proud moment for Assad Vala who has led his side from the front during the 2019 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier where they finished runner-up. It will be interesting to see how the likes of Charles Amini, Kiplin Doriga, Jason Kila and Lega Saika play as they are now in the league of big boys playing against the best in the world.

# Namibia

Gerhard Erasmus would be debuting in this world, and it would be after an 18-year gap that the side would be part of the elite ICC tournament having played last in the 2003 50-over World Cup in South Africa. They had finished 4th in the 2019 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier and shall look to make it to the 2nd Round here. The side has promising players like Stephan Baard, Zane Green, JJ Smit and Jan Fryllinck who would like to prove their talent here.

#Sri Lanka

They won the tournament in 2014 and finished runner-up in 2009 and 2012, but Sri Lankan cricket has been on a downward slide over the last four years. The fact that they would have to play the qualifier round bears testimony to their drop in form. Dasun Shanaka would like to take it step by step and look to make it to the 2nd Round and do well from thereon. Kusal Perera, Danushka Gunathilaka, Wanindu De Silva and Lakshan Sandakan would have to rise to the challenge for the side to do well.

#Bangladesh

Mahmudullah wouldn’t have liked being part of Round 1 of the tournament but their poor performances over the last few years have hit them hard. However, their recent show would serve as an encouragement for the side. The side has never made it to the knockouts of the tournament, and this would be the first aim in Mahmudullah’s mind. They have some of the best players in this format of the game including the likes of Shakib al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mustafizur Rahman and Mehedi Hasan and on their day they can defeat any side. The conditions in UAE would suit their style of play.

# India

Since winning the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2007, their wait for a second title remains unfulfilled. They were semi-finalists in the last edition and runner-up in 2014. Given the quality of players and bench strength Virat Kohli’s side has they would start favourites in the tournament. They have star performers like Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja in the side. However, Kohli would like to get over the jinx of failures in finals that has dogged them since their title win in the ICC Champions Trophy back in 2013. They have lost three semifinals and three finals in ICC events since then.

# Pakistan

Runner-up in 2007, champions in 2009 and semi-finalists in the next two editions, Babar Azam’s side has been quite a powerhouse in this event. However, in the last two editions, the side has failed to make it to the knockouts, and they would be looking to get over this here. They have been a good T20 side over the last few years and have good knowledge of the conditions in the UAE. Along with Azam the likes of Faheem Ashraf, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Hafeez and Imad Wasim the side has a bunch of good players in this format of the game.

#Australia

They won the 50-over World Cup record five times but haven’t been able to crack the T20 puzzle. They failed to qualify for the semi-finals in the last edition and their best performances came in 2007 and 2012 where they made it to the Semis. The recent form of the side in this format hasn’t been too encouraging but Aaron Finch would like to lay his hands on the maiden title. They would like to see a strong show from players like David Warner, Steven Smith, Pat Cummins, Glenn Maxwell to end this draught.

# England

They had won the title back in 2010 and finished runner up in 2016. It was quite a heartbreaking loss for the side against the West Indies in the final where they were undone by the heroics of Craig Braithwaite.  Eoin Morgan would have different plans this time as he hunts for the title which would be quite an achievement after their 50-over World Cup title in 2019. They have players like Dawid Malan, Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Curran who will look to make it tough for the opposition.

#South Africa

The side has always struggled in ICC events and this tournament has been no different. They have been in the semi-finals twice in 2009 and 2014 but the young Temba Bavuma would like to get rid of the chokers’ tag this year. They aren’t in the best of form in this format over the last two years and there is lots of work to do for the team. They would count in players like Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, George Linde and David Miller to script history in the tournament.

# New Zealand

They won the ICC Test Championship recently, their biggest trophy to date and skipper Kane Williamson would like to add another jewel to the crown with their maiden title in this tournament. They have been semi-finalists twice and shall look to go beyond that this time around. The side has several good players among its ranks including Devon Conway, Martin Guptill, Trent Boult, Colin Munro and Glenn Phillips and the onus would be on them to deliver.

# West Indies

Kieron Pollard would like his side to start from where they had left in the last edition of the tournament. The defending champions would come here with their confidence high having some of the best players in this format of the game in their squad. With two title wins, they are the most successful team in the tournament’s history and players like Andre Russell, Shimron Hetmyer and Evin Lewis would like to have a crack at their opponents. However, Pollard would like to guard against complacency which has always troubled the side.

# Afghanistan

With all doom and gloom back home with the country torn by war, the Afghan side would like to heal some wounds with their performance in the tournament. This will be their fourth straight appearance in the tournament, and they would look to improve their show which hasn’t been great so far. Rashid Khan would look to lead his side with pride, and they have several exciting players in their ranks that include the likes of Mohammad Nabi, Mujeeb ur Rahman and Hashmatullah Shahidi.
