India To Win @ 11/5 - BET NOW
I have to back the hometown heroes India to win the World Twenty20 this year as they enjoy home comforts so much. They have won three T20 series in a row in the build up to this tournament and look the correct choice at 11/5 to win the tournament.
All of their squad know the conditions perfectly well and each of them play in the IPL and know how to get the best of these Indian pitches in the T20 form of the game. I think 11/5 is a stand out price and one worth taking on using our odds comparison service.
SOUTH AFRICA @ 5/1 - BET NOW
The South African side have been clever in bringing five spin bowlers to the tournament and have impressed in their warm up matches. They are in the easier super 10 group in my opinion and are currently ranke third in the T20 rankings. I think they have good bowlers, a great batting line-up but will be found out by their average fielding.
AUSTRALIA @ 5/1 - BET NOW
Australia have failed to ever win a Twenty20 World Cup in any of their five attempts thus far. It is the one tournament that is missing from their trophy cabinet! That is the reason that I am steering clear of them for this tournament. The current one day champions have always flattered to deceive in this form of the game. They have a brutal batting line-up but I question their ability to bolw in sub-continental conditions.
ENGLAND @ 7/1 - BET NOW
Eoin Morgan has turned around the fortunes of England's form with the white ball this past year since taking the captaincy and they have players who can win a game on their own in their squad - specifically with the bat. Only Morgan remains from the 2010 squad but he will be key to how far this England side go.
WEST INDIES @ 12/1 - BET NOW
When he's not trying to hook up with TV presenters on the side of the pitch, Chris Gayle is scoring runs at a merciless rate. He and the rest of the senior players in the squad have to lead frm the front to have any chance of winning the tournament in my opinion.
NEW ZEALAND @ 12/1 - BET NOW
After reaching teh final of the 2015 World Cup final, New Zealand will look to go one better in this tournament. They have never even reached a semi-final since 2007 though and have been drawn in the tough group. Wit this format of tournament play I doubt they have enough, unfortunately for them.
PAKISTAN @ 16/1 - BET NOW
Pakistan have been declining in this form of cricket since winning the tournament in 2009. Shahid Afridi is great at T20 cricket, but his best days are behind him and they come into this with three losses out of five. I am not expecting much from them this year.
