Former England pacer Steve Harmison recently opened up on Team India. He believes that Australia and England have the potential to trouble the Men in Blue in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022, starting on October 16. Harmison reckoned that Rohit Sharma and co. have plenty of match-winners but they are not playing the best cricket. Australia, the defending champions and hosts, clinched their maiden crown last year, beating New Zealand by eight wickets in Dubai. India, on the other hand, have a tough squad and have won their last seven out of eight bilateral T20I series.
Steve Harmison gives honest take on Rohit Sharma-led Team India
Harmsion spoke to OnlineCricketBetting and stated that the format’s unpredictability implies that any team can win on their day based on individual brilliance.
The former pacer also feels that Australia, New Zealand, India, England, and Pakistan have plenty of match-winners. He said:
“I can see England and Australia troubling India at the World Cup. T20s are about somebody producing a moment of brilliance and I don’t think India are necessarily favourite or playing the best cricket.
“Obviously Kohli could get India to the semi-finals of the World Cup with just a couple of scores, he is a fantastic player and he can get India there. If anyone gets 100 from 50 balls they will get their team over the line.”
The former Durham seamer continued:
“You can win all your games to get to the semi-final, but in T20 there is always the chance that someone gets 100 and they’ll win. One player can change everything on any day, which is what T20 is all about, and England, Australia, Pakistan and New Zealand have match-winners as well as India.
“This World Cup is going to be brilliant because there are so many superstars that can win a game at any point.”
Team India left for Australia in the early morning hours of October 6 and will take part in two practice games against Western Australia in the build-up for the tournament. The side will also face Australia and New Zealand in its two ICC warm-up games before its opener against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 23.
