Favorites and Dark Horses


Australia is considered a strong favorite to win the tournament, as they are seen as invincible in ICC tournament knockouts. Their world-class fast-bowling attack led by Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins makes them a formidable side, although they may be vulnerable against skilled spin bowling.

India is seen as a key favorite, with players like Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, and Ravichandran Ashwin. Their fielding consistency could be a strength, but their spin department may be a weakness. However, some members are skeptical about their chances due to an aging core and the inclusion of ‘washed up’ T20 players.

The West Indies are also seen as a favorite, with the home team advantage as most matches will be played in the Caribbean. They have a strong T20 lineup with many all-rounders. However, their current team is not as strong as the 2016 champion side.

England won the previous T20 World Cup in 2022, and they have immense batting firepower, especially with players like Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan. Jofra Archer’s pace and variation could boost their attack, but they can be inconsistent. However, their chances are lower this time due to the Caribbean conditions.

Dark Horses

New Zealand is always considered a dark horse team, though they have never won a T20 World Cup before. Their strengths lie in their tactical adaptability, game plans, and the steadying influence of Kane Williamson. Trent Boult’s swing bowling and Devon Conway’s batting are key assets.

Afghanistan is a potential dark horse, possessing many dangerous T20 specialists like Hazratullah Zazai, Rashid Khan, and Mujeeb ur Rahman.

Sri Lanka is seen as a dark horse, as they showed signs of resurgence in recent tournaments like the 2022 Asia Cup win. They have young talented players like Wanindu Hasaranga.

South Africa has a chance to go far in the tournament, with players like Quinton de Kock, Rilee Rossouw, and Kagiso Rabada in form. They have a fearsome pace attack led by Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje. Aiden Markram provides stability and spin options, but they may lack a top-tier all-rounder.

Namibia may lack depth of experience, but their fearless approach and ability to adapt to different conditions make them dangerous opponents.

Uganda, as a rising star in African cricket, could make waves in their maiden World Cup appearance. Their youthful energy, raw talent, and hunger to succeed could lead to surprises.

The USA and Canada playing on home soil could provide the boost they need to make their mark. They have improved in recent years and have the potential for individual brilliance.
