The second phase of the IPL 2021 is scheduled to be held in the United Arab Emirates from September 19. After the end of the IPL, the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 will go all guns blazing from October 17 onwards.
The marquee event will be held in UAE and Oman respectively. West Indies have been the most successful team in T20 World Cup. The Caribbeans won it two times. Team India won the inaugural edition. England, Pakistan and Sri Lanka won a title apiece.
On the other hand, Australia haven’t made a case for themselves in T20 World Cup. The Aussies might have won 5 ODI World Cups but they have nothing to show for in T20Is. Meanwhile, several top teams have been preparing for the T20 World Cup.
The teams have been actively involved in T20Is to sort out their woes. Team management across all nations have been experimenting with the team combinations, right playing XI and so on. Ahead of the showpiece event, experts have been coming up with their predictions.
