In the year 2020, we have witnessed a lot of ups and downs till now. From Australia winning the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup by beating India in finals to postponement of Olympic games and IPL 2020 and cancellation of various other tournaments and bilateral series. All the sports fans have witnessed these things in recent past.
Now, as all cricket lovers look forward to ICC Men’s World Cup 2020 for their entertainment, West Indies batting legend Brian Lara, in an interview, has come up with top three contenders for this year’s T20 World Cup.
Brian Lara, who is in India to take part in (now cancelled) Road Safety World Series T20 2020, reckoned India as a force going to lift the T20 WC 2020. Lara said Australia will be playing on his home ground and thus they also will fancy their chances.
“I think India is going to be a force to reckon with. Australia at home….it’s not going to be an easy World Cup for anyone. Australia is going to be worried about India and the West Indies, West Indies are going to be worried about everybody because of their inconsistency sometimes. So it’s going to be a great World Cup to look at,” Brian Lara told espncricinfo.
Lara is very much impressed with KL Rahul. He seems to be a great fan of technique of KL as he said, “Rahul is just class. He is a great entertainer and a great person to watch bat.”
“His technique and grace is just unbelievable. Of course, up there in the top three you’ve got Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma but every time I see him (Rahul) facing a delivery, I just love it; his head is over the ball all the time, he has a technique that I wish I had,” the 50-year-old former batsman added.
