New Delhi: Former Team India cricketer Aakash Chopra believes that New Zealand’s team is not a strong contender for the T20 World Cup title this year and may have to face a tough challenge against Afghanistan. The Kiwis are in Group B with India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and two others qualifying. Not long ago, New Zealand announced their squad for the T20 World Cup, which will be held in the UAE and Oman.
Talking about New Zealand’s squad, Aakash Chopra said that the Kane Williamson-led side will also be tested by Afghanistan. He said, ‘Well, this team is fine. New Zealand has been placed in the pool which also has India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Afghanistan can also trouble this team while competing.
The former Indian opener also pointed out that the Kiwis are known for their rise in ICC tournaments. “It’s a good team,” he said. He throws himself in the field and has the ability to come first. They won the World Test Championship and lost the 2019 World Cup as the match was tied.
New Zealand once again have a chance to shine in the ICC tournament. New Zealand has tasted success on a large scale in India.
Difficult for New Zealand to reach final: Chopra
Aakash Chopra is not quite sure that New Zealand’s team will reach the T20 World Cup 2021 final. Chopra said, ‘I doubt New Zealand will finish the podium this time. Yes, he knows how to surprise everyone, but this is the situation in UAE. I find the chances of Pakistan and India brighter in this group.
The 43-year-old said that the New Zealand team has almost covered all the areas, but they can be a bit difficult on the pitches that are helpful for the UAE spinners. Chopra said, ‘I think the New Zealand team will struggle. This team looks as strong as Australia. The team has a match winner, but will they win?’
