India will be making it to the final in T20 World Cup 2021 for sure: Monty Panesar

Former England spinner Monty Panesar has backed the Virat Kohli-led Indian team to reach the final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE and Oman. India has not captured the title since winning the ICC T20 World Cup in 2007 in South Africa. Team India now aims to end that 14-year title drought. India will play its first match in the T20 World Cup against Pakistan on 24 October. Monty Panesar believes that he is a strong contender to reach the final of the tournament.

Panesar told The Times of India, ‘India is going to be a strong contender. They will enter the tournament as the top contenders for the title. I think they will definitely make it to the finals. Virat is aiming to win the ICC title as captain and he will not miss this opportunity easily. This will be his last tournament as captain in T20 International cricket and he looks hungry to win the title.

Pakistan has not been able to beat India in any World Cup so far, be it in the 50-over or T20 format. The Indian team would now like to increase their record against Pakistan in the World Cup to 13-0. Panesar believes that if India dismiss Pakistan skipper Babar Azam early, they can easily tackle the rest of the batting order. He also said that the pressure will be on Pakistan in terms of numbers.

The former English spinner said, ‘If India bowlers get Babar Azam out early, they can pile up Pakistan like a pack of cards. But Pakistan is really good on UAE pitches. They have a good bowling lineup with Shaheen Afridi. They have a strong batting lineup with Babar Azam. They have all the basics covered. You cannot predict Pakistan. Only Pakistan can defeat Pakistan.
