T20 World Cup 2021: India are on the brink of elimination as well as semi-finals qualification in the World Cup. Moreover, they are dependent on the likes of Afghanistan to beat New Zealand. This is primarily because India got off to a disastrous start in the t20 World Cup. Moreover, they lost to their arch-rivals Pakistan which became a huge thing.

This was also India’s first loss against the men in green in World Cup which added more pressure. And this created a negative effect on the Indian team. But every fan expected India to make a grand comeback as they have done in the past few months. However, India produced a similar performance against New Zealand. The t20 performance had no will or strength to beat the Kiwis.

Moreover, India were already termed as a team that will not qualify for the semi-finals of the t20 World Cup. However, the men in blue made a grand comeback against Afghanistan. They went on to beat the Afghanistan team by a huge margin.

Similarly, the Virat Kohli led team went on to hammer Scotland in a recently played t20 World Cup match. Moreover, these two back to back wins have massively boosted India’s run rate in the points table of Group B.

However, India still have an outside chance to qualify into the semi-finals of the t20 World Cup. But for that Afghanistan must beat New Zealand by a thin margin and then India must win against Namibia by a huge margin. This way Indians can qualify into the semi-finals.

T20 World Cup 2021: Harbhajan Singh picks his all-time best t20 team

Former Indian cricketer and commentator Harbhajan Singh went on to pick his all-time t20 team. However, many surprising names can also be witnessed in Bhaji’s t20 team. In the opening slot, he went on to pick Rohit Sharma and Chris Gayle. While he also picked up Jos Butler at the number three. It was a controversial decision since Virat Kohli has better stats than Butler in t20 cricket as well.

He then packed up Shane Watson, AB De Villiers, Dwayne Bravo, Pollard. And in terms of the bowling unit, Bhaji went on to pick Sunil Narine, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah. And finally, he selected MS Dhoni as the captain of his all-time t20 team. It is because MS Dhoni has a fine and proven record in t20 cricket as well as other cricketing formats.

Bhaji has picked quite a brilliant t20 team and many players are best in the short format even today. However, not picking Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh is a strange decision from Harbhajan Singh.

Harbhajan’s T20 XI:

Rohit Sharma, Chris Gayle, Jos Buttler, Shane Watson, AB de Villiers, MS Dhoni (c &wk), Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah
