T20 World Cup 2021 – Who Will Win the Ultimate Cricket Trophy?

There is plenty of cricket taking place in 2021 due to the disruptions caused last year. However, the highlight of the cricketing calendar will be the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The tournament, originally planned to take place in Australia in 2020, was moved to India and then moved to the United Arab Emirates and Oman. The tournament is scheduled to begin on 17 October and end 14 November 2021. It's been a long time and a number of teams strongly believe that they will lift the trophy, and this will just raise the stakes when cricket betting online!

Read on to see our prediction of who will win the T20 World Cup 2021!

World Cup T20 2021 Teams and Qualification

The top nine full members in the ICC rankings plus the hosts, India, were already directly qualified for the T20 World Cup 2021.

The other eight teams will take part in the group stage. The top two teams from each group will join the eight other teams in the Super 12 stage.

World Cup Group Stage Prediction

Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are the standout teams in the group stage and should easily make it through to the Super 12s. In fact, we would be pretty surprised if both teams did not top their respective groups with consummate ease. We fancy the Netherlands and Ireland to also qualify for the Super 12s, but we would not be too surprised if Namibia qualified at the expense of one of them.

World Cup Super 12s Prediction

The top two teams from Group A will join Pakistan, Australia, West Indies and New Zealand in Group 1. The top two teams from Group B will join India, England, Afghanistan, and South Africa in Group 2. At the time of writing, England, Australia, Pakistan, and India are the top four ranked teams and many believe that one of these teams will go on to lift the trophy.Michael Vaughan, a former England captain, believes that India and England will compete in the final, and that England will win the T20 World Cup in 2021. England recently played a 5-match T20 series in India and before the decider, Vaughan tweeted the following:

"I reckon today's T20 final could be the T20 World Cup final in eight months...At the same venue...England to win..."

Our T20 World Cup 2021 Betting Prediction

India were favorites to win the last T20 World Cup tournament, but they came up against an inspired West Indies team in the semis. This year they will still be determined to win the trophy, despite not have the host advantage anymore. We definitely fancy their chances of lifting the title, but we certainly cannot rule out England lifting the T20 World Cup trophy for the second time. Like Michael Vaughan, we also believe that the T20 World Cup final will be contested between India and England, and we feel that the vaster experience that the Indian players have playing in high pressure situations in the IPL will see them over the finish line, but not by much. We predict India to win the 2021 T20 World Cup. Whatever the outcome of this tournament, one thing is for certain and that it that we will all be highly entertained!
