India far from favorites world cup t20

Since winning the inaugural ICC World T20 back in 2007, India has never progress to the semi- finals of the mega event. It is with that record that the team now prepares for its next international assignment the World T20 in Bangladesh.

That triumph in South Africa was what jump started Dhoni captaincy career but, 7 years later, he will need to get his hurting team to turn its recent fortunes around fast.

It’s strange that the country that produces the biggest T20 spectacle all year, the IPL, has played just one T20I since January 1, 2013 a Yuvraj Singh-inspired win over Australia in Rajkot.

In ODI cricket, India has had a last 12 months. First, they went on a winning run that incorporated a series win over England, the Champions Trophy triumph in England, the tri-series win in West Indies, and series victories over Zimbabwe and Australia.

However, beginning with the tour to South Africa in December, India have been in free fall, notching up wins over simple Bangladesh and Afghanistan while losing to all the other top profile teams.
