New Delhi: T20 World 2021 is starting from October 17 of this month in UAE and Oman. The Indian team under the captaincy of Virat Kohli is the biggest contender to win the World Cup. But Team India will be threatened as always by the best teams like West Indies and England. But in the meantime, there will be another team from which India will have to survive.
This team can become a threat
Australia’s limited overs captain Aaron Finch has said that we have no doubt that the team will win the ICC-T20 World Cup. Australia has not yet won the T20 World Cup title in its cricket history. The team is currently ranked seventh in the ICC T20 rankings. Finch said on Wednesday that he doesn’t think much about history.
We will win the World Cup – Finch
Finch told ICCCricket.com, ‘I can understand that we have not done well in the T20 World Cup. Like the rest of the teams, our preparation has also been hampered but still we are confident that we will play well. He said, ‘We know that when we give our best performance, it is difficult to beat us. Our team is fully prepared, we are ready to play in different conditions. We just need to show the right game at the right time.
