The countdown for the T20 World Cup has begun. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced its World Cup schedule. All teams are preparing for the smaller format of cricket. The Virat Kohli-led India squad is considered one of the strongest contenders for the T20 World Cup. Team India T20 format has explosive batsmen, and even in bowling, the team has more than one good bowler. But the big question is, which player can prove to be an X-factor in the T20 World Cup in the UAE? Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir has replied. According to Gambhir, Virat Kohli is not Rohit Sharma, but Jaspreet Bumrah is an X Factor in the Team India World Cup.
T20 World Cup: Which players will watch the T20 World Cup, named after Dinesh Karthik’s Hardik Pandya?
Speaking on ‘Star Sports’, Gambhir said:’ They have great opportunities. They have the strongest players in each category. He has good batting, he has good spinners. They also have good fast bowlers. When you have a bowler like Jaspreet Bumrah, you always have the X factor. He could prove to be the biggest X-factor in the T20 World Cup. You will continue projects around Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, I’m sure. However, one player to look out for is Jaspreet Bumrah because if he retains his form and manages to deliver the best, India will be a strong contender for the title.

Regarding the match between India and New Zealand at the T20 World Cup, Gambhir said, ‘Absolutely 50-50. When you go to a big tournament like this, the records are for the media and the fans. Records aren’t important to players and they don’t think about it. Yes, we think about personal records. If a batsman fights a bowler, it stays in his mind. However, Pakistan did not win against India and Team India did not win against New Zealand. India and New Zealand will play each other on October 31 at the T20 World Cup in UAE and Oman.
