International Cricket Update: During an ICC tournament, it doesn't matter how well teams have fared in previous tours. That doesn't matter because any side can beat a top team in the T20 World Cup.
Live T20 cricket is also an extremely unpredictable format, with the game changing in the blink of an eye. As a result, we can't rule out the possibility of a team upset. However, the performances of a few key players may cause concern for some of the best clubs. Australia, for example, maybe concerned by David Warner's poor performance for SRH this season. In addition, Shadab Khan has appeared to be out of sorts in recent times for Pakistan.
In the meantime, here are a few Out-of-form players who might cause problems in the 2021 T20 World Cup-
Mahela Jayawardena, the head coach of the Mumbai Indians (MI), stated that the management is not pressuring all-rounder Hardik Pandya to bowl since it may harm his batting. Pandya did not get to bowl a single over throughout the IPL 2021's UAE leg, which lasted five games. With the exception
Virat Kohli has talked about how important it is to have Pandya in the squad because of the balance he brings with both the bat and the ball in numerous interviews. Kohli may also play an additional batsman or a bowler in the squad by playing Hardik. During the recent limited-overs series against Sri Lanka, the MI all-rounder returned to bowl. During the IPL, though, he was kept out of the critical middle overs.
It is fair to argue that England's captain, Eoin Morgan, has played a key role in transforming his country's white-ball environment. Morgan has been instrumental in the team's victory in numerous matches since he was given leadership in late 2014.
In the 2019 Cricket World Cup, he was also the skipper as England finally ended a 44-year curse. He has also made a significant contribution to the team's middle-order as a player.
David Miller, one of South Africa's most seasoned hitters in the T20 World Cup, hasn't been at his best. The southpaw has shown flashes of brilliance in a couple of T20I matches against Ireland and Sri Lanka, but his batting has not been as consistent as it once was. Miller's runs are even more important for South Africa now that the squad is rebuilding and there aren't many power hitters lower in the order.
Also, with usual skipper Temba Bavuma only recently recovering from injury, Miller will be tasked with producing runs. So far, the 32-year-old has appeared in 90 T20Is, scoring 1742 runs with a strike rate of 140.82.
Shadab Khan, Pakistan's all-rounder, has not made as much of an influence on the squad as he would want. By his lofty standards, his stats with the ball and bat this year are disappointing. His recent efforts against England and the West Indies have been disappointing. Worse, management was hesitant to advance him up the chain of command.
The leg-spinner has 58 wickets in 53 T20I appearances. In the same amount of time, he has only scored 226 runs in 22 innings with the bat. Because of the management's lack of faith in him, he has had fewer opportunities to bat.
