New Delhi: T20 World Cup 2021 is going to start in UAE from October 17. This tournament was to be held in India this year, but due to Corona virus it has been shifted to UAE. India is considered to be a strong contender to win the T20 World Cup this year, but there is a team that can prove to be a ‘giant killer’ in this tournament. This team is adept at defeating even big teams and getting them out of the tournament.
This team will be the ‘Giant Killer’ of T20 World Cup
In the T20 World Cup, Team India needs to be especially careful with this team. The last time in the 2016 T20 World Cup, Team India has narrowly escaped its blows. This team is none other than Bangladesh, which has the ability to dust off the biggest of the legendary teams when they have their day. Bangladesh has broken the dream of many big teams in almost every World Cup.
Big teams can snatch happiness
Bangladesh had knocked India out of the tournament after defeating India in the 2007 ODI World Cup, after which legends like Sachin Tendulkar to Virender Sehwag and Rahul Dravid were disappointed. Even in the 2016 T20 World Cup, Bangladesh almost kicked out Team India from the tournament, but Dhoni’s historic run out saved India. India had kept their hopes alive in the tournament by winning that match by 1 run.
This Bangladesh team is in form
Bangladesh is not counted among the big teams of cricket, but still this team has broken the hearts of the best teams in the world on many occasions. Recently Bangladesh defeated Australia 4-1 in the 5 T20 match series. Bangladesh then defeated New Zealand 3-2 in the five-match T20I series.
Bangladesh has already cleared its attitude
Former Bangladeshi captain and veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan says that his team will take to the field with the aim of winning the Bangladesh T20 World Cup. Shakib Al Hasan said that Bangladesh has enough time to prepare for the T20 World Cup and their morale is also very high after defeating Australia and New Zealand in the series.
T20 World Cup will start from October 17
The ICC T20 World Cup will be held in the UAE from October 17. 16 teams will participate in this tournament. Whereas the final match of this tournament will be played on 16 November.
