The 20-20 World Cup is just one month away and the teams are finalizing their squads for the big event. India also two series left against Australia and South Africa where they will be finalizing their squad for the tournament. After the early exit from Asia Cup, the pressure of expectations has grown exponentially on the Indian team.
The fans are now expecting the ‘Men in Blue’ to come back home with the cup. Even after having a forgettable Asia Cup, the Indian team is one of the strongest contenders for the upcoming 20-20 world cup. On that note, let’s take a look at three reasons why India are the favorites:
1. Return of Virat Kohli’s form:
The day the entire India had been patiently waiting for finally arrived on 8th September 2022, when Kohli brought up his 71st international century. The star batter looked at his vintage best as he smashed the ball to parts of the ground for fun. Kohli just got better and better with every innings as he grew in confidence and found his mojo back.
His return to form couldn’t have come at a better time for India as the 20-20 World Cup is just one month away. It’s a tournament that Kohli has owned throughout his career, winning two ‘Player of the Tournament’ awards at the marquee event. He will be once again raring to go in the upcoming world cup as he’s already sent a strong message to the opposition with his stupendous hundred.
