Who will lift the trophy of the T20 Cricket World Cup 2016?
On the 8th of March, one of the most important tournaments of cricket will be starting in India. And everyone has just a single question in their mind: Who will be the Champions this time? Will Sri Lanka be able to defend their title or will some other team snatch the trophy from them? These questions are currently unanswered, and can only be answered on the 3rd of April when the finals of the T20 Cricket World Cup will be held in Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
This tournament is going to be really interesting as many unexpected teams such as Honk Kong, Netherlands, Scotland and even Afghanistan are taking part in it. And all the other teams such as Australia, New Zealand, India, South Africa and of course the defending Champions Sri Lanka are playing really good cricket and are probably the contenders to win this tournament.
Many people say that because the tournament is taking part in India, Team India will have a lot of home advantage, but I don’t think it is true, as the Indian Premiere League has taken away that advantage from India, the reason being that cricketers from around the world take part in this tournament every year and that makes them vey familiar to the Indian conditions. Adding the fact that West Indies and South Africa come to India to play so many international matches as well that they consider India as their 2nd home.
While talking about the defending Champions Sri Lanka, not many people think that they will be able to defend their title as they are not in their best form currently, with just loosing to aNew Zealand and loosing their best batsman Kumar Sangakkara has made them a weaker team, and surely they don’t look like the same team that won this title 2 years back. So, they would definitely have to step up their game to at least look like the defending Champions.
This tournament is going to be super exciting as many teams are contenders for that single trophy! Let’s wait and watch which team can beat the rest and lift the trophy…
