T20 World: Top Contenders by Cricket today in Sports / Extreme Sports (submitted 2014-03-15) The T20 World Cup is few days away with lots of expectations from the big power houses of world cricket. West Indies have a tough task of defending their crown while the likes of Sri Lanka, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia would like to add this trophy in their cabinet. Here is a look at the top contenders of the World Cup. India Team India is always ranked among the leading contenders of any tournament and the upcoming T20 World Cup is no different. They have top quality batsmen in their team but the bowlers are poor than school children's. Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni are the match winners but same can't be said about the bowlers. The pitches in Bangladesh will assist spinners so R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will have to look out for wickets. Group: B Prediction: Group Stage Exit Australia If anyone saw them playing against South Africa in the recently concluded T20 series, then it won't be difficult to judge them for the upcoming T20 world. Forget about the firing guns like Aaron Finch, David Warner, Glenn Maxwell and Shane Watson, the veteran Brad Hodge is the player to watch out for in Bangladesh. Mitchell Starc is the quality fast bowler even in this

format of the game and his partnership with Nathan Coulter-Nile could prove decisive. Group: B Prediction: Winner West Indies They won the last edition of the T20 World Cup but repeating this feat again won't be easy for them. They have players like Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy, Dwayne Bravo, Marlon Samuels and Andre Russell, who can win matches single handedly while the likes of Sunil Narine is enough to contain the batsmen from world over. However, the loss of Pollard and the pressure of being the reigning champion could pressurize them in this year's competition. Group: B Prediction: Group Stage Exit Pakistan This is one team who is always on the contender list because of their past record in the T20 World Cups. Pakistan is full of match winners. From Hafeez to Afridi, Umar Akmal to Shoaib Malik there is no end to the availability of power hitters in the side. Saeed Ajmal is the best spinner in the world, who is renowned for taking wickets in huge numbers against the rivals. Playing him is next to impossible on the spin friendly pitches and Bnagladesh certainly has that kind of tracks. However, they lack consistency. Group: B Prediction: Semifinalist Sri Lanka

They have been unlucky not to win this event. Sri Lanka has always played well in the T20 World Cups and the same is expected from them in Bangladesh. Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara, Angelo Mathews, Kushal Perera, TM Dilshan, Lasith Malinga, Ajantha Mendis and Sachithra Senanayake have got impressive track record in the slam bang version of the game. They will be one of the teams to watch out for in Bangladesh. Group: A Prediction: Runners-up South Africa They have all the talent in the world to win any tournament on papers but have proved failures on the ground. Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, David Miller, Dale Steyn and Albie Morkel are star players but haven't played as a group in the past tournaments and could continue doing so in the T20 World Cup, which will be played in Bangladesh. Group: A Prediction: Group Stage Exit England The selectors have ended the career of their best batsman Kevin Pietersen and his absence will surely cost them. Their participation in the tournament is just a formality as they won't cross group stage. Michael Lumb, Alex Hales, Eoin Morgan and Stuart Broad might record some good performances otherwise this team has a tendency of failing when exposed to spin bowling on the turning tracks. Group: A Prediction: Group Stage Exit

New Zealand They are the dark horse of the big event. They have played good cricket in the recent times and could reach the knockout stage. Ross Taylor, Brendon McCullum, Corey Anderson, Martin Guptill, Nathan McCullum, Jimmy Neesham and Tim Southee are tailor made for the shortest format, who could change the complexion of the game in a span of few overs.
