As millions of cricket fans waiting for the biggest contest of the year 2016 "Twenty20 World cup" so am I, to see players like Shahid Afridi, Martin Guptil, Chris Gayle and many more playing against each other and destroying opposition bowlers, hitting big sixes and it is the beauty of this format of game which makes it so exciting.

T20 is the shortest format of game but still most loved as you never know what's going to happen next bowl because you only have 20 overs to play and game can change any moment. This is why every cricket lover is anxious for Twenty20 World cup 2016 which will feature 16 teams: Pakistan, India, Australia, England, South Africa, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe and West Indies, being full members. Scotland, Hong Kong, Oman, Netherlands, Ireland and Afghanistan being Associate Member that qualified through ICC World T20 qualifier held in Ireland and Scotland in July 2015.

India is going to host this competition making Indians an strong opponent. With Bengaluru, Dharamshala, Mohali, Mumbai, Nagpur, New Delhi and Kolkata being the venues as announced by Indian Cricket Board. New Delhi and Mumbai to stage semi-finals and final to be held in Kolkata. A total of 35 matches to be played from 8th march to 3rd April.

Sri Lanka being the defender, former champions will try their best to defend their title as they are at the top of ICC T20 Ranking. West Indies is well behind when it comes to test cricket or ODIs but their reputation as T20 batsmen can not be denied.

It is very hard to predict which team is to win as there are teams like New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, India and not to forget Pakistan which is a very unpredictable team one never knows that on a certain day they can beat unbeatable.

Each team has players who have an appetite for runs and it is a game of sixes and every team has players who are capable of hitting sixes and playing a match winning knock. No doubt Indians have past record of winning matches at home grounds, batsmen scoring runs on home pitches and making big totals look small. On the other hand Pakistan is a very strong bowling side to make a big difference and can even win low scoring matches with their bowling. and there are Australians who can be as lethal as any opposition can be with batsmen like Maxwell, Watson and Finch who can deliver the goods. And A.B Deviliers who have gained great reputation as a batsman, who can take away the match single handedly but it is all team work in the game of cricket because sometimes little contributions can be of great importance in this short format of the game.

There are high expectations from Pakistan cricket team. They won the first T20 match against New Zealand and Pakistan will try its best to regain the T20 world cup title. The team with the comeback of Mohammed Amir and Shahid Afridi still leading the team as captain can do it again if they do not repeat the mistakes made in T20 world cup before. It is still very painful to remember for every Pakistani cricket fan.

But before saying something one thing is right that T20 is an unpredictable format. But looking at conditions of Indian pitches which are slow and support spin, good spin players and aggressive batsman will dominate the game same is for good spinner, who will give a tough time to poor spin players. But having played IPL many players have the experience of these slow tracks and we have seen great performance from various batsman in past, but before coming to any conclusion lets have a look on some teams:

Starting from host side, India: Certainly they will have the advantage of home looking in good touch, scoring runs and also will have favorable batting conditions, have a good chance. As former captain Sunil Gavaskar has said that Indians are favorites, impressed by their performance in first T20 against Australia. Russel Arnold from Sri Lanka also have same thought, as he tweeted "India looking serious contenders #WT2016". Which sums it all that there is the possibility For India to win the title second time.

Sri Lanka which is at the top of ICC T20 ranking, so how can they not give hard time to opposition. Having players like Mathews, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kusal Perera and Malinga who can be a triumph card for its team. They have won it before and can again do the same but they lack the experience of Kumar Sangkara and Mahela Jayawardene with their retirement which will a cause of pressure for them.

Australia who are the current World cup champions are also great fighters who will try there best to do the same in this upcoming World T20. No doubt their recent performance is incredible having white washed India but there pacers will not be as effective on these slow Indian tracks as they were on pitches of Australia, still they are the hardest opposition with aggressive batsman like David Warner, Maxwell and Aaron Finch who can hit the bowl hard and long. Mitchell Starc who has evolved as a strike bowler, can be destructive. Australia will not disappoint its fans, it will be a tough team.

South Africa has all the elements required for a good T20 team. Bowling attack which includes Dale Steyn, a quality, wicket taker as well as the kind of bowler who you need while defending, not giving much runs or leaking more boundaries. A.B Devilliers whom a bowler thinks ten times to where to bowl as there is not much restrictions for this guy, he can hit you anywhere sitting on one knee, can be a nightmare for any opposition bowler but these are not the only two players, South Africa includes players like Hashim Amla, De Kock, Faf Duplesis and also good spin bowler Imran Tahir.

Pakistan is such a unpredictable team that you never know what is going to happen, it can be good at time and also turn worse. A side which every team fears because you never know what is coming. Each player has the capability to turn the cards but hardly anyone consistent. Having Shahid Afridi in team you never know what gonna happen. An strong bowling side which will even win low scoring match. Batsmen like Shoaib Malik, Umar Akmal, Mohammed Hafeez, who can perform anytime.Concluding that Pakistan is a good T20 side and its possible for it to perform well on Indian pitches.

And in the last but not the least West Indies, the true entertainers and hard hitters, whom can never be disliked are also good in the shortest format of game with batsman like Chris Gayle who can destroy the opponent team with brutal batting, Keiron Pollard, Samuel, Bravo, can be a dangerous batting side but lacking quality bowling is a great problem. We have seen recently big and also fast runs ( fastest fifty, century and a brutal double ton by Guptil ) being scored against them.

New Zealand that has amazed everybody by its surprising recent performance has a good chance of winning there maiden title but it will not be easy on Indian soil, still they will a competitive team which will not accept defeat easily. Coming to conclusion Indian team will be possibly be favorite but teams like Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Pakistan will not left any stone unturned to win this title.
