Dubai. 44 out of 45 matches of T20 World Cup 2021 have been played. Australia will face New Zealand (Australia vs New Zealand) in the final to be held on November 14. Both the teams have not won the T20 World Cup title so far. In such a situation, this time we will get to see a new champion. Before the tournament, India, Pakistan, England and West Indies were considered as contenders. All the big experts were seen standing around these 4 teams. Out of this, 2 teams could not progress beyond Super-12. Whereas 2 teams were defeated in the semi-finals. In such a situation, the game has once again surprised everyone.
First thing about the most successful captain. MS Dhoni is the most successful captain in the world. However, Afghanistan’s Asghar Afghan was at the top in terms of records. But Dhoni is considered as the top team. Before the T20 World Cup, he was made the mentor of Team India. Still, the team could not perform much. Pakistan defeated it by 10 wickets while it lost to New Zealand by 8 wickets. The team could only register victories against Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia.
Gayle and Bravo disappointed everyone
West Indies was the defending champion of the tournament and won the T20 World Cup title twice. In such a situation, he was considered a big contender. Chris Gayle was the highest run-scorer in T20. He had scored more than 14 thousand runs and also scored 22 centuries. But he could not touch the 50-run mark in a single match of the T20 World Cup. Not only this, he could score only 45 runs in 5 matches. At the same time, Dwayne Bravo was the only bowler to take more than 500 wickets in T20. But he could take only 2 wickets in 5 matches of T20 World Cup. He has also retired from international cricket after the tournament.
