Team India’s continued winning run in T-20 form of the game is a good news on the eve of World T-20 Championship in India. The Indian Team is the number one side and should hold the ranking till start of the tournament and continue the winning spree in the entire part of the tournament to win the coveted cup. Dhoni’s side stormed into the final of the Asia cup by defeating the defending Champion Sri Lanka in a very convincing way. Toss proved vital as the wickets in Mirpur behave indifferently and the team batting first is having a distinct advantage. However, we come across teams like Pakistan and Sri Lanka failing in the onslaught of the home side and made things go difficult even after getting the advantage. India on the other hand overcame the toss loss and the early burst of pace bowling by the Sri Lankan bowlers. But the main worry is the failure of both the openers. Thus the openers paving way for a crisis and both Raina and Kohli came out of the rut with flying colours. With Yuveraj Singh to follow and Dhoni in the lower middle order, the position seems to be rather compact and no jitters at the present moment. Indian bowlers Ashwin, Bumrah, Pandya and Nehra all shared the spoils and the standard of umpiring is the only worry for Team India.
