T20 World Cup 2021 all teams

The cricket T20 World Cup gets underway on October 17, with a month of action for cricket fans to enjoy. It is five years since this tournament took place, with this edition being postponed twice. It was originally scheduled to take place in Australia, was then moved to India and will now take place in the UAE, with Oman hosting some of the first round games too.

T20 World Cup Betting Preview

It will come as no surprise to many that India are the favourites for the competition, priced up at 5/2 with VBet to win it. This may seem short, but they would likely have been even shorter had the tournament took place in India as it was planned to at one point.

England are 7/2 behind them, New Zealand and the West Indies are both 6/1 while Australia are 13/2, Pakistan are 10/1 and South Africa round off the realistic contenders at 12/1.

Of the teams mentioned, India, England and New Zealand look the strongest. The feeling is that the West Indies may be a little too old now, while Australia’s chances suffered a big blow when it was announced they would not host.

If there is one team that will feel comfortable in the UAE then it is certainly Pakistan, who were forced to play multiple games in the country not too long ago due to unrest in Pakistan. Many of this team will remember those days, and it will certainly help them, so they could be a worth outsider to note in the competition.

England and New Zealand both have question marks over what their spinners will do here, so the advantage has to go to India. The recent IPL tournament has been played here, so will have given some Indian players a taste of the conditions too.
