ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Top Contenders to Qualify for the Semi-Finals
19 Sep 2022
The stage is set for ICC T20 World Cup 2022, and cricket fans are eagerly waiting to see their favourite teams in action in the tournament’s 8th edition. A total of 16 nations’ teams will participate, but there’ll be only one winner.
Before the big final, four teams will compete in the semi-finals. Which among the 16 of them will secure their seats in the top 4 contenders of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022.
Former Indian batsman Wasim Jaffer thinks South Africa National Cricket Team has more chances than other teams to win the next world cup, citing the South African team’s recent performance.
But, former cricketers and cricket pundits have different opinions. Apart from that, the latest online betting trends show that even cricket fans are divided when it comes to picking one or two potential winners of the T20 World Cup 2022.
Although predicting one winner is extremely challenging, guessing the top contenders to qualify for the semi-finals is a whole different thing. We’ve analysed different teams’ recent performances, their squads for the tournaments, their opponents, and pitches where they’ll play their matches to predict the top 4 teams of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022.
Here are they:
Team India recently came back from Asia Cup 2022 after getting knocked out in the Top 4 stage. Although India didn’t qualify for the final, the Men in Blue are still a top contender to be among the top 4 teams of T20 World Cup 2022. Reasons?
The Indian cricket team for ICC T20 World Cup 2022 is very strong. Led by Rohit Sharma, the team has players like Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd. Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Yuzvendra Chahal.
Also, India is #1 T20 team in the world.
Pakistan concluded Asia Cup 2022 by losing to Sri Lanka in the final. But, before that, Pakistan managed to beat India and Afghanistan.
Also, Pakistan is known to be an unpredictable cricket team. In their prime, they can beat any team in the world. Apart from that, it has the best current T20 batsman – Mohammad Rizwan – and star batsman Babar Azam.
Ramiz Raja, the Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), believes Pakistan cricket team is capable of winning the T20 World Cup 2022 despite their poor performance in the final of Asia Cup 2022. According to Ramiz, winning and losing is part of the game.
It will be interesting to see if Pakistan turns the table in their favour in the T20 World Cup 2022.
- South Africa
The South African cricket team had a decent ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. Despite being in a group with strong teams like Australia and England, the Temba Bavuma-led squad managed to win 4 out of 5 matches. However, the team couldn’t qualify for the semi-final stage as Australia and England also won four matches each and had a better run rate than South Africa.
In the T20 World Cup 2022, the team will try to do better. Recently, the team defeated England on their home soil. Apart from that, they have talented players like Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, Aiden Markram, Anrich Nortje, and Kagiso Rabada.
- Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka on the list may be surprising, but the team’s performance in the Asia Cup 2022 has shown that they are capable of being among the top 4 contenders.
Recently, the Lankan lions won Asia Cup 2022, defeating the strongest teams of India and Pakistan. Their recent victory will motivate them to do well in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022.
