We have wrote a lot about the records and statistics from all the previous editions of the T20 world cup. You can check if you love to know the history of the tournament. Coming back to the live action, teams like Bangladesh, Netherlands, Oman, Ireland, Afghanistan, etc face each other in the qualifiers. Big ones like India, South Africa, West Indies, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand and England would play few warm ups before they kick off the preliminary round from 13th March.
Team India has been exceptional amongst all the teams in the recent past. They have run through teams like Australia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh in the last few months winning almost all the matches. They have raced to the top of the ICC rankings and stayed there for two months. It's an ideal scenario for the hosts to enter the world cup. The team has found the right balance playing at almost all conditions, be it the bouncy pitches of Australia or slow and hard pitches of Indian sub-continent.
Australia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka look unpredictable. But the first one looks the strongest amongst the three. With big hitters and quick bowlers in the squad, Australia can be the team to beat. Pakistan and Sri Lanka haven't yet found the right combination and they might find one during the warm up matches.
New Zealand and South Africa are easily the second and third strongest teams in the T20 world cup 2016. New Zealand has an edge over South Africa in terms of better performances in the critical matches. South Africa has an undesired history of losing critical matches in the ICC events.
England and West Indies too would have a point to prove. West Indies is plagued with injuries and hence England looks a better outfit. England has produced some good performances since the 2011 Cricket World Cup and they would be eager to clinch the title here in India.
Loads of matches ahead, lot of quality cricket to follow. Every day will treat you with a great match or two! Enjoy the T20 world cup 2016 live streaming and telecast on HotStar, Star Sports and DD National channels.
