The T20 World Cup is probably one of the biggest cricket tournaments. As it is an ICC trophy event, every team would like to have their name inscribed on it. However, it is easier said than done. Winning a T20 WC requires significant contributions from every player of a team. Only when a unit comes together can they win a tournament as hard as this. There is no room for excuses.
However having said that, every team has its shortcomings. There are worrying signs for every team participating in the T20 WC. So what are these obstacles which every team might need to tackle?
Here’s a look at a worrying sign for each team ahead of the T20 World Cup 2021:
1) Australia: Key players being out of form
It is safe to say that T20s is the only format that the Aussies are yet to master. They are yet to win their maiden T20 WC. However, their squad looks good this time around as it consists of a lot of big names.
Despite this, most of these big names are out of form. The fact that they haven’t got too many games under their belt hasn’t helped their cause either. Steve Smith and David Warner, arguably Australia’s best batters, haven’t been in the best of form, of late.
They have been struggling in the ongoing IPL 2021. Their skipper Aaron Finch has been blowing hot and cold too. Mitchell Starc, their lead pacer has struggled to find his rhythm as well.
