All roads now lead to Australia after Team India defeated South Africa in a historical series on Tuesday. The team captained by Rohit Sharma is expected to enter the T20 World Cup 2022 as one of the favourites to win the prestigious trophy. The Rahul Dravid-coached team overcame South Africa 2-1 behind the experienced opener Rohit to win the Proteas’ first-ever home series in the shortest format.

The Rohit-led Indian team qualified for the 2022 World Cup after defeating South Africa and Australia in the series. Australia is the current champion. Team India is seen as the favourites to overturn Australia’s dominance in the shortest format, despite the absence of paceman Jasprit Bumrah and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja in the T20 World Cup.

Former Australian all-rounder Michael Bevan expressed his opinions in the T20 World Cup 2022, saying that India is among the favourites to win the tournament in Australia. According to Bevan, the top three championship contenders in the T20 World Cup are Team India and England, and the game hosts Australia. “I believe I would have to choose Australia, England, and India. India and England are perhaps the best teams right now, in my opinion. But Australia has some incredible, very gifted players who, when it works for them, it works, and they are more than capable of taking off (winning) successive World Cups. “Telling SkySports, Bevan.

“It should also assist a little bit considering that Australia has the benefit of playing at home. At this point, I believe they would have to rank in my top three, “said the two-time World Cup champion. Russell Arnold, a former Sri Lankan all-rounder, chose to support Sri Lanka, the side that had just won the Asia Cup. In contrast, Bevan helped the Australian squad to take advantage of their home advantage.

“They (Sri Lanka) won the Asia Cup and have played great cricket over the last two or three months. The kind of cricket they have been playing has been adored by many. As a result, they will be a challenge for all opponents, and if they (Sri Lanka’s opponents) are careless, they risk tripling (upsetting) one of the more anticipated rivals. However, I believe there is a decent possibility they can pull that off if they keep quiet about it and avoid detection, “Added Arnold.
