England captain Eoin Morgan believes Team India is a strong contender to win the T20 World Cup in the UAE in October-November. He said that under Virat Kohli’s leadership, India has played some great cricket in lesser terms in recent times. Last year, India defeated New Zealand 5-0. The team then won the series 2–1 against Australia and 3–2 against England. Morgan believes that the tremendous bench strength will give India an edge in the upcoming T20 World Cup. The ICC on Friday put India in a group with Pakistan, New Zealand and Afghanistan. This group includes runners-up from qualifying group A and winners of qualifying group B.

“India is a strong contender for the T20 World Cup,” he said. I think that’s okay too. They are a really strong team. He has a lot of depth in his team and covers all bases. We are on a different path compared to the 50-over World Cup in 2019.
However, India captain Virat Kohli feels that England are definitely in contention to win the award. The Indian captain said that due to his immense potential in all three disciplines, all attention would be on England. England is placed in Group B with Australia, the West Indies and South Africa, known as the ‘Group of Death’. Two more teams from the qualifying group will join the England group.
