“I think they remain a formidable side and are the favourites. More so because they are playing on Australian soil and the kind of changes, they have brought into the team, reflects that they are in sync with what is required to win such tournaments in Australia,” Saba Karim said on Sports 18.

“Big ground, so you need some more power hitters, so they bulk up that kind of portion in the side. So, they have Tim David and Glen Maxwell. For instance, in this team, you don’t have Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis, both of them very high in terms of power hitting. So, this kind of combination makes them a very strong side to retain the T20 World Cup again.”

As far as India is concerned, they are currently playing 3 matches T20I series against Australia and will play a home series against South Africa before heading to the ICC T20 World Cup tournament. On the other hand, Pakistan are playing England in a seven-match T20I series.
