The seventh edition of the ICC T20 World Championships for men will take place between October 17 and November 14 in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.
The groups for the four-year event for the celebration of the tent were drawn on Friday.
Group 1 is described as the ‘Group of Death’ due to the presence of defending champions West Indies, former champions and current England, Australia and South Africa ranked first.
However, Kaneria believes that the West Indies and England are favorites to qualify for the semi-finals.
‘When I look at Group 1, the way the West Indies have formed their team and the way they play against Australia, they are strong contenders. “Between West Indies and England, I think one team will reach the final,” Danish Kaneria said on its official Youtube channel.
In Group 2, arch-enemies and former champions, India and Pakistan, team up with Afghanistan and New Zealand.
And Kaneria did not hesitate to declare that India will start as an overwhelming favorite.
“In Group 2, India has cricketers and versatile players. Phase two of IPL 2021 will take place before the T20 World Cup, so it will choose India to reach the final, because the players will make contact, ”Danish Kaneria started.

‘India-Pakistan Games and Seeing Ashes’ –Danish Canary
India and Pakistan will resume their competition in the ICC T20 World Cup again.
With the meetings between the two parties limited to ICC and Asia Cup events, Danish Kaneria reckoned that anticipation would be sky high among fans on both sides of the border.
He also added that an Indo-Pak meeting has more viewers than the Ashes, and the upcoming meeting will help the ICC earn a lot of revenue.
‘India-Pakistan games and more than the Ashes seen. India and Pakistan do not play bilateral series. People are therefore waiting with anticipation for the times when these two teams will meet in ICC meetings. From a commercial point of view, it would also generate a lot of revenue, ”signs Danish Kaneria.
India and Pakistan have met five times in ICC T20 World Cups, but just like the 50-year-old event, the Men in Blue have emerged victorious on all five occasions, something they will continue to do in the upcoming event. .
