Cricket T20 World Cup Preview

There is little to choose between Australia, India and England in the outright betting, and all three teams should go a long way at the tournament.

Australia bounced back from a slow start at the 2021 tournament to defeat New Zealand in the final, but going back-to-back at the T20 World Cup is not easy.

They have been drawn against England and New Zealand in the opening phase and will need to be at their best to retain the trophy.

India had a torrid time at last year’s tournament but are strongly fancied to put up a much better showing this time around.

They should progress to the semi-finals without too much difficulty, although that may be the limit of what they achieve this year.

India are fancied to reach the semi-finals but may find it difficult to progress any further given the strength of their potential opponents at that stage.

New Zealand, South Africa and Pakistan should also be competitive, but we have a sneaky feeling this could be England’s year.

They head into this tournament with a point to prove after coming up short against the Black Caps in the last four in 2021.

England have plenty of strength in depth in their squad, and they look a good bet to finally get their hands on the prestigious trophy.
