Dean Jones backs Pakistan for World T20
India start as favourites for the World T20 because of their red hot form coming into this year’s mega event. The men in blue have won the 10 T20I matches out of their last 11 outings in 2016 and the teams seems to gelling up rather nicely as compared to other teams. Playing under home conditions is also a significant advantage for the home side.
Former cricketer Dean Jones and Sunil Gavaskar, while talking to NDTV, also feel that India are the top contenders to lift the title but Sunil Gavaskar added that although they are favorites but just by a little bit but in contrast Dean Jones considered team India as the favorites to be crowned T20 champions on the 3rd of April.
Sunil Gavaskar also fancied the way Indian side has raised their fielding to a whole new level which is extremely vital in a T20 match because it helps in saving many runs and develop pressure during a match.
Dean Jones considered the team’s with better bowling to go a long way in the tournament which is why he believes that Australia will not feature in the semifinal spots but he instead decide to root for the Pakistan cricket team because of their bowling and especially the likes of Amir and Irfan who can unsettle any bowling lineup. Dean Jones rated West Indies ahead of the Aussie side because of their inexperienced bowling attack.
