Two Time T20 World Cup Winner Darren Sammy Picks His Favourite
The former players and Pundits are still making predictions about the probable winners for the upcoming T20 World Cup. The fans will be cheering for their respective countries. However, cricket is an unpredictable game and it is never easy to make these predictions. One can only try to make a guess based on recent form and squad depth. Despite that, the shortest format of international cricket can sometimes just spring up surprises.
With that being said, the cricketing world has now turned to one of the expert captains of this format. Two-time T20 World Cup winner Darren Sammy has now had his say. He has made his prediction as to which team will be winning the tournament.
What Did Darren Sammy Say About The Potential Winners Of The T20 World Cup 2021; Whom Does The Former West Indian Skipper Consider The Favourites?
The tournament that will be starting on the 17th of October in the UAE and Oman has a lot of top contenders. Many of the Pundits have picked their favourites already. However, it was now time for a seasoned winner of this format to have his say. Sammy is the most successful skipper when it comes to the T20 World Cups, as he won a couple during his playing time.
Keeping that in mind, Sammy spoke about his favourite team to win in an ICC digital show. He stated, “It is a no brainer for me. The West Indies, all the way for sure. When you look at West Indies, and people might say I am sounding biased, but in the last four (three) tournaments we’ve managed to get to the final four, winning two out of that.”
“Our players, the calibre of players we have – when you look at captain Pollard, he is back, the Universe Boss Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Jason Holder, Fabian Allen, Evin Lewis. I could go on a long list of guys who can just take the attack to you.”
Well, that is a really good shout too. Sammy further added that England and Australia have good teams too and they could be serious contenders too. It will be interesting to see which team comes out on top though. Let’s wait and watch.
