T20 World Cup 2021: Afghanistan Should Not be Taken lightly in T20 WC 2021, Says Gautam Gambhir

Former India opener Gautam Gambhir has said that Afghanistan should not be taken lightly in the T20 WC 2021. “Any team has the potential to win in T20,” he said at the Star Sports game plan event. He also advised the rest of the teams to be cautious against Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup 2021.

“There is no chance of taking Afghanistan lightly. I always believe, if you want to see any underdog team for this tournament, it will be Afghanistan. There is no question of underestimating the players like Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Mujib Zadran, ‘said Gambhir.

‘Any team has the ability to win in T20 because it is a different format. There is no chance to take any team lightly here. Not even Afghanistan, where only Rashid Khan can endanger the opposition, says Gautam Gambhir.

‘Group-1 seems to me to be the Group of Death. Here 4 teams are very strong. On the first day of the World Cup, all 4 teams will take the field on Saturday. To me, it seems quite interesting. The West Indies are unpredictable as always. Because they have strong cricketers. They have the ability to win this World Cup for the third time.

‘England have similarly strong cricketers. They are the most consistent in white-ball cricket in the last few years. They also took the one-day World Cup two years ago. Australia may not seem so effective; They don’t have many good cricketers in the team. But they can also be terrible on their appointed day, ‘said Gambhir.
