Shane Warne picks two favorites to win T20 World Cup, leaves out Australia

Shane Warne has also backed out of form England captain Eoin Morgan

The former Australian leg spinner Shane Warne reckons that India and England are the two teams that will start their campaigns in the T20 World Cup as the favourites.

Although Warne has not picked Australia as the favorite to win the T20 World Cup, he feels the Australian team shouldn’t be underestimated as they have got a lot of match-winners in their squad.

Shane Warne believes West Indies and Pakistan might pull off a surprise as well

Talking about other teams, Shane Warne wrote on Twitter that New Zealand is a team that performs well in the world events more often than not. So, they are another team worth keeping an eye on and apart from them, West Indies and Pakistan have the ability to surprise anyone on their day.



Warne asked his followers which team, they think, will eventually be able to run away with the title. Since the T20 World Cup is taking place in the UAE where most of the pitches are going to be slow, teams like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, which are habitual to playing in these conditions, can’t be counted out either.

Shane Warne, meanwhile, has also backed two out of form players David Warner and Eoin Morgan, who have come for some serious criticism of late because of their performances with the bat.



Morgan and Warner have been the premier batsmen of their respective teams in T20 cricket in the last few years, but their spots have been questioned recently after a string of low scores in international cricket and IPL.

Warne is of the view that form is only temporary, and it’s the class of the player that eventually comes to the fore. Warne says it wouldn’t surprise him one bit if Morgan or Warner turns out to be the player of the tournament in the T20 World Cup.

Shane Warne recently worked with Morgan in the Hundred Competition in England, where he was the head coach of Oval Invincibles, while Morgan was captaining that team.




I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
