New Delhi. The countdown of T20 World Cup 2021 has started. The matches of the tournament are scheduled to be held in the United Arab Emirates and Oman in October-November. Team India may be announced on 7th September. A place in the World Cup squad is almost certain for at least 5 players who have made it to the 2016 Twenty20 World Cup and this year’s WTC Final Event. It also includes captain Virat Kohli. However, in 2016, the team was led by former experienced player MS Dhoni. This time the matches of the tournament will be held from October 17 to November 14. A total of 16 teams are coming down.
According to reports, in addition to Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Jaspreet Bumrah, Rabindra Jadeja and Mohammad Shami will be included in the T20 World Cup squad. In addition to the 2016 T20 World Cup, all of these players also made it to the WTC finals. Team India has not won a T20 World Cup since 2007. That is, he has been waiting for the trophy for 14 years. Virat Kohli has yet to win a single ICC trophy for Team India under his captaincy. So they also have opportunities.
Pakistan in Team India Group
There is also a Pakistani team in the Team India group. Pakistan have never beaten India in a T20 World Cup. Apart from India and Pakistan, New Zealand, Afghanistan and two qualifiers are in the group. Only 2 teams from each group will advance to the semifinals.

The West Indies are the defending champions of the tournament and have won the tournament twice. At the same time, the Australian team has won the ODI World Cup title, but has not yet become the champion.
