With the T20 World Cup coming closer each and every nation will be looking forward for their betterment in the shortest format of white ball cricket. The Men in Blue are looking more promising in the shortest format in comparison with other nations as they are putting all their efforts to push the limits across.

They have been dominating nearly every nation and the coordination they are carrying as a team is also appreciable. If we talk about the present performance of the Indian Team in the T20 format, they have clinched two series at overseas pitch and one on the home pitch respectively.

The Indian campaign has started the year with Sri Lanka . They clean swept the team by taking a lead of 2-0. After the victorious win over Sri Lanka, against the Kiwis they sealed a historic win by clinching the series by 5-0. In this year, the team played the three match T20 series at Australia as well where they won the series by 2-1.

BCCI is putting each and every effort to create more and more wide options of players for the upcoming tournament. As every player seems to be freshened up and target oriented. This will definitely put a basic challenge for the players to clinch the major cup of the season. It is also a positive point for the Indian team as the tournament will take place at the home soil.

This will help to read the conditions also. The last time the tournament was played in India was in 2016 where the team’s hopes were shattered by the West Indies in the semi final game. But this time the Men in Blue seem to more enthusiastic and their professionalism will hold them in good stead at the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
