icc men t20 world cup 2024 Key contenders

As cricket fans gear up for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, hosted by the West Indies and the USA, anticipation is building around the key contenders who could clinch the title. With Lotus365 being the best betting platform across India, enthusiasts are keen to place their bets on the top teams. Here’s a look at the teams to watch out for in this year’s tournament.


This is a powerful team by cricketing standards entering the tournament with a big name. The group contains an experienced skipper in Rohit Sharma, alongside whom there is quite a mixture of veterans and young children. Virat Kohli, who has an exceptional batting style, and Jasprit Bumrah, famous for his lethal yorkers, are most likely to come out as heroes. Depth in both batting and bowling gives India strong considerations too.


T20 cricket cannot afford not having Australia with such aggression. With Mitchell Marsh as captain, they have a well-balanced side featuring explosive batsmen such as David Warner and Glenn Maxwell. Such bowlers consist of Pat Cummins or Mitchell Starc who can destroy any batting order. Being experienced and tactical also puts them as one of the strongest contenders.


The champions of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 have a dynamic T20 squad led by Jos Buttler while England boasts several exciting players who can change games at will starting with Jonny Bairstow and Will Jacks among others who bat very aggressively when required. England has got Jofra Archer or Adil Rashid whose versatile attack makes them even more competitive than other nations’ teams. Playing under pressure very well makes them formidable opponents in international cricket.


Pakistan never dies; they play unpredictably but thrillingly ever since their return into cricket world stage after years of isolation due to terrorism threat against visiting foreign players during matches on their home soil! Babar Azam leads that side now supported by other talented members including Mohammad Rizwan (wicket keeper) or Shaheen Afridi. This team can produce match winners from nowhere and its love for the game makes it dangerous. They are coming from a good form and confidence as they look forward towards their tournament.

New Zealand

New Zealand is recognized for being a disciplined team that shows excellent sportsmanship even when playing against top teams. Under Kane Williamson’s cool guidance, this group of young players performs well with both bat as well as ball on any given day making them tough opponents to deal with in such a competition. Some major examples here include Trent Boult or Tim Southee; these two men alone could change the outcome of any particular match. In addition to strong all-round abilities, New Zealand has employed strategic thinking which makes it a rather tough competitor, especially in Twenty20 format.

West Indies

Playing at home may provide home advantage that the West Indies have over other participating teams in T20 World Cup 2024, since half of all matches will be held there due to regional co-hosting agreement between three nations namely the USA, Canada and the Caribbean countries (Bahamas). Rovman Powell heads a side full of batters like Shimron Hetmyer besides Nicholas Pooran renowned for their hard-hitting approach while Dwayne Bravo captains their bowling line up where each one could win games single handedly sometimes only if bravo is concerned about his knees that have become weaker lately probably leading cut short his career within shortest time span possible after considering surgery sooner than later. The only side in this list I am not familiar with really but I think if they qualify into finals then they must be having something special about them…;

Dark Horses

South Africa and Afghanistan are considered the dark horses in this tournament [SYSTEMIC]. South Africa led by Aiden Markram has got an evenly balanced squad featuring key players including Heinrich Klaasen & Kagiso Rabada while Rashid Khan’s Afghanistan has improved immensely enough to spring surprises on top nations with their spin heavy bowling & aggressive batting lineups.


The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 is expected to be a thrilling tournament as many strong contenders compete for the trophy. Teams such as India, Australia, England, Pakistan, New Zealand and West Indies have all the firepower and depth to go till the end.
