Dubai: In the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, big teams are seen battered, in which the pitch of UAE is also being held responsible to some extent. The IPL 2021 tournament was played on the pitches of UAE just before the T20 World Cup. In the Super 12 stage, two groups of 6-6 teams have been formed. Two teams from each group will qualify for the semi-finals, but there are 4 teams whose dream of reaching the semi-finals of T20 World Cup 2021 may not be fulfilled. Let’s take a look at 4 such teams:
Considered one of the strongest teams in the cricket world, Australia is the most successful in the ODI World Cup, but when it comes to T20 cricket, the name of the Kangaroo team is not counted in the list of strong teams. Despite having strong cricketers in the team, the Australian team has failed to prove itself in this short format. Australia’s performance in the T20 format has been declining for a long time. Australia’s team reached the final of the T20 World Cup for the first and last time in the year 2010 and lost to England in that. There are big biggies in this team, but still it has failed to dominate this format. Australia’s recent form in international T20 cricket has not been impressive. Looking at the performance of the Kangaroo team, it would not be wrong to say that the chances of reaching the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2021 are slim.
The start of Super 12 in T20 World Cup 2021 has been very bad for Bangladesh. Bangladesh have suffered defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka and England, after which their chances of going to the semi-finals are very less. Bangladesh does not come in the top 8 in T20 International rankings. Bangladesh team has performed well in the T20 format in the recent past. He has also selected a good team for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, which has great cricketers like Mustafizur Rahman, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Soumya Sarkar, but due to such strong teams in the T20 World Cup, it is difficult for them to reach the semi-finals. Is.
In the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, New Zealand has been placed in Group 2. New Zealand is part of Group 2 along with teams like India, Pakistan and Afghanistan in the pool. Although New Zealand always performs very well in ICC tournaments, but always misses to win the title. Last year on New Zealand tour, Team India defeated New Zealand 5-0 in the 5-match T20 series. After this, although New Zealand has done well in this format, but in the recently held Bangladesh tour, New Zealand’s team was defeated by 3-2. Kiwi team captain Kane Williamson’s bat has faded. Apart from this, New Zealand has also not included experienced batsman Ross Taylor in the team. It looks like it is difficult for the Kiwis to make it to the semi-finals.
Sri Lanka is also looking to be one of the weakest teams in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The Sri Lankan team of young players performed wonderfully during the recent tour of India to Sri Lanka. Despite not being an experienced team, Sri Lanka managed to win the T20 series against India 2-1. But in the T20 World Cup, there are very strong teams in front of Sri Lanka, in front of which it is very difficult for them to survive. In such a situation, Sri Lanka is finding it difficult to reach the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2021.
