The ICC t20 world cup starts on Tuesday and all the eyes will be glued on to the team India performance. However, what separates T20 from the other forms of the game is very often you end up enjoying the stellar performances of the players from other teams as well. While your loyalty may lie with your country, you still like to see some fireworks on the ground by other players as well. It is what separates and gives a unique feel to the game. And most importantly it is the best platform for both newcomers and veterans alike to showcase their talent. So here is a list of players, both fans and experts would like to watch and root for.
- Virat Kohli, India
He is by far the most dynamic, consistent and dependable player in the current Indian squad. The subtle mix of calmness with lots of aggression and energy makes him a nightmare for the bowlers of the opposition team. Add to it, his will power and ability to perform under pressure has made him the number one match winner for team India. Everyone who knows anything about cricket is most likely a fan of this explosive player.
- Mohammad Aamer, Pakistan
He has been a problem area for most batsmen of the opposition team. He has in recent times stunned both the viewers and the batsmen alike with his lethal swing and wicket taking abilities. He is one player who has the capability to win matches single handedly. With the new ball he certainly can topple any opposition team and is an inspiration for those who believe in strong comebacks.
- Hardik Pandya, India
He is probably the solution to India’s search for a wicket taking fast bowler who could hit sixes at will when the team needs it. Given proper time and training he could emerge as one of the best all rounder for team India. With an added bonus of good fielding he has certainly made his place in the squad and a player to look out for in the future.
- Mitchell Marsh, Australia
He can deliver with both bat and ball and his recent performances did earn him a substantial amount of money in the IPL. His addition has made Australia a more balanced side and is one of the players to bet on in this edition of the world cup.
- AB de Villiers, South Africa
Words can’t begin to describe this player. He is a champion in every regard and is a dangerous mix of both technical and dangerously innovative shorts. He can render any bowling attack blunt and take the game away from the opposition in a matter of just a couple of over.
- Jos Buttler
He may not have been a success in the test cricket, but he is a completely different story in the shorter format of the game. His hard hitting and innovative stroke play has not earned him a spot in the IPL but also makes him a player to watch out in this world cup.
