Former Team India chief selector Saba Karim believes that the Australian Cricket Team is going to remain a formidable side and are the favourite for winning the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 which is set to start in October.

Australia lifted the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 by beating New Zealand in the tournament finale in the UAE to claim their maiden World Cup Trophy in the T20 format.

Speaking on SPORTS18, former India selector Saba Karim said, “Australia are favourites to win the T20 World Cup. I think they remain a formidable side and are the favourites. More so because they are playing on Australian soil and the kind of changes, they have brought into the team, reflects that they are in sync with what is required to win such tournaments in Australia.”

Karim said that the team is faring strongly in the batting department which will play a crucial role in helping the team retain the trophy.

“Big ground, so you need some more power hitters, so they bulk up that kind of portion in the side. So, they have Tim David and Glen Maxwell. For instance, in this team, you don’t have Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis, both of them very high in terms of power hitting. So, this kind of combination makes them a very strong side to retain the T20 World Cup again,” Karim added.
Australia is currently involved in a three-match T20I series against India and has already taken an upper hand in the series by thrashing the hosts in the 1st game. The team successfully chased down a high-scoring thriller, registering their highest-ever T20I chase.
After wrapping up the series against India, Australia will lock horns with West Indies.
