5 Things to Watch out for Indian Fans

“INDIA-INDIA” – all the Indian team fans will cheer for the country in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. The T20 world cup is being played after five years gap and last time India successfully made it to the semis only to go down against the eventual World Champions West Indies. India had won the inaugural edition of T20 world cup under the talismanic leadership of MSD and the fans would want a repeat of 2007 t20 world cup win. Here’s a list of five things that all Team India fans would keep a keen eye on during the entire world cup -

  • Hardik Pandya’s Bowling

The highly debated topic before, during and even after the squad selection by the Indian selectors was whether Pandya will be fit enough to bowl his quota of overs. He didn’t bowl a single ball in IPL and nor did he bowl in the practice games against England and Australia. Hardik rolling his arm over is quite significant for Indian team combination, especially due to the explosive firepower he provides & the exceptional fielder that he is.

  • MS Dhoni – The Mentor of Indian Cricket Team


Coming off from title winning run with CSK, MS Dhoni will find himself in a new role at the world cup. He has been given the responsibility of acting as the “MENTOR” for the Indian cricket team. With most of the current India team players, starting their careers under the leadership of Dhoni, his role will be a pivotal in grooming India’s youngsters at the world cup to handle pressure situations and can prove to be a masterstroke by BCCI and the selectors.

  • Virat’s Last Captainship Assignment

The news that took world cricket by shock was when Indian Team Captain Virat Kohli announced via an Instagram post that he would no longer lead the team post World Cup 2021. This makes it more important for him to finish off on a winning note and leave a legacy behind him. His fielding and more prominently his batting will have a huge impact for India. However, it will be his captaincy that could be the game-changer.

  • The Ra-Ro Opening Partnership

The Rohit-Rahul opening combination was instrumental for India’s successful run at the Men’s ODI World Cup in 2019 in England. In T20i’s, too their numbers are staggering. Whenever, both of them have opened the innings for India in international cricket, they have given the country good starts that too at a whooping strike rate of nearly 150. We have seen that in T20s good opening partnerships can be help team win many matches.

  • The Return of Ashwin-Jadeja Combo in White Ball Cricket

Indian fans last saw the duo of Ashwin-Jadeja play together in a white ball match for the country was way back in 2017 in the Champions Trophy final against Pakistan. Ashwin’s selection may be a surprise call for many but his numbers in IPL for past couple of years have been brilliant & his versatility of bowling in any stage of the game, gives captain Kohli more options to try. Jadeja is in a purple patch & there is nothing stopping him currently.

Billions of Indian Team Fans will cheer for the country starting from October 24 when India go against Pakistan in their first match of the T20 World Cup. All the #BleedBlue fans will pray for only one thing that Virat Kohli-led Indian Team lifts the World Cup trophy by winning the finals.
