The T20 World Cup is scheduled to begin in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman from October 17 and the final match of the tournament will be played on November 14. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has also divided the qualifier stage for the T20 World Cup 2021 into two groups and the Super 12 stage. The tournament featured a total of 8 teams that have entered the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup through qualification and the remaining 4 teams will be decided after the qualifier stage.
The already qualified teams in Group I, also known as the ‘Group of Death’, include England, Australia, West Indies and South Africa. Meanwhile, Group 2 consists of India, Pakistan, New Zealand and Afghanistan. Today in this article we will talk about which four teams can make it to the knockout stage of this great tournament.
These four teams can make it to the T20 knockout
1. New Zealand
The New Zealand cricket team has always been considered an underdog. Although still they are one of the favorite teams of the big tournament of ICC. Recently Kane Williamson’s team has won the World Test Championship (WTC) by defeating India. Under the leadership of Kane Williamson, the New Zealand national cricket team has won 4 consecutive T20I series.
However, in the absence of Williamson and some other big players, New Zealand suffered a 3-2 loss against Bangladesh. After this, after the return of the big players again, this team has become strong again. However, the team has been placed in a comparatively less competitive group in the World Cup, which means that they have a better chance of making it to the knockout stage of the T20 World Cup 2021.
