The T20 World Cup will open with the Super 12 stage after the competition receives the top 2 teams from groups A and B in the Qualifier round. Experts and prominent personalities are making predictions before the showpiece event, and legendary Australia speedster Brett Lee has joined the line. He made a daring prediction before the Super 12 stage, backing the Indian combination to be the event’s best run-scorer and wicket-taker. Here is all about what Brett Lee spoked About India T20 WC Team.

Lee has supported KL. Rahul and Mohammed Shami will be the event’s leading run-scorers and wicket-takers, respectively. They both did well in the just-completed IPL. In the IPL 2021, only 3 bowlers got more wickets than Shami. Rahul, on the other side, was topping the runs graph but couldn’t do much more because PBKS didn’t make the playoffs. He scored 626 runs in 13 innings and was the single leader of PBKS many times. Rahul also performed admirably in India’s two warm-up matches.
“I think India are probably the favorites with their top four or five batters and their bowling attack. I have KL Rahul down as the top run-scorer in the tournament and Mohammed Shami to be the leading wicket-taker, purely going on the last few months. So, if they deliver and India have one of the leading run-scorers and wicket-takers, it’s a good start,” said Lee to ICC.

Lee also added that Australia is still dragging behind in this form, but he is still confident in his team’s potential to win the 2021 T20 World Cup. He said that while his expectations are high, everything will go in their favour if the standard is not raised in the major event.
“This is the one format of the game Australia’s men have not succeeded in at an ICC tournament and we Australians are hungry for it. For me, the expectation is that Australia will go and win the tournament. I know they might be high expectations but if you don’t go and set the bar very high, you are not going to succeed,” he added.
