T20 WC Batting show: 7 batsmen on the card
15 March 2016, Nirapad News: The T20 is predominantly a batsmen game; tons of four and sixes, lauded by the crowds are in the exhibition of any T20 match. The flagship event of the shortest version of the game will be on stage from today as the qualifying round came to an end quite submissively to the rainy weather of Dharamsala. Let us have a look on the list of the batsmen who can be the best entertainers of this edition of World Cup.
AB De Villiers:
There is nothing left to say about De Villiers; there is no one like him in world cricket right now. The powerhouse of South African batting line up, AB De Villiers can seize everything on the card for his team. He has been running in super form for couple of years, played some great knocks of the time whether those could provide his team a rational success story or not.
De Villiers can throw any bowler of this earth anywhere along the cricket ground as per his wishes, his 162 run innings off just 66 balls against West Indies in the World Cup might be remembered after generations.
One of the cleanest heaters of the time, Glen Maxwell powers T20 cricket for Australia. If Australia could claim another world title, it will surely be backed by Maxwell. His dauntless approach makes the bowlers shaky to face him; emerged from the shortest version of the game, Maxwell can turn any scenario with no time to spare.
David Warner is one of the few rare batsmen of the time who is equally successful in all formats of the game. He has been reigning the fields in ODIs and T20s for last several years, and with his knock of the fastest Test century in SCG, Warner marked his footsteps strongly in the elite arena of cricket also.
Another significant side of Warner’s batting is his consistency, the destructive Aussie Vice – captain can lead his team to clinch another world title with the time.
Sabbir Rahman is one of the artisans behind the success story of team Bangladesh in the last few years. The young hard hitter is not afraid of any shots to exhibit whether it be any orthodox shot or improvised one.
The hazel eyed middle order batsman showed his enormous talent in the last Asia Cup, against Sri Lanka whose devastating knock of 80 from just 54 balls put Bangladesh into a competitive total after initial disaster.
Reverse is his batting attire, Eoin Morgan has a strong wrist work and the strength of English batting line up.
Eoin Morgan, the English skipper is one of the most unconventional batsmen of the time. He resurrected the English batting line up in the limited over games. Playing all sorts of unorthodox shots, Morgan is another batsman claims the attention in this T20 World Cup.
Another English performer on the show, Joss Butler possess the ability to play every shot of the cricket book and has been compared with the mighty South African batsman AB De Villiers. However Butler is the possessor of the fastest century by any English batsman in the One Day International cricket. In 2012, he struck a 46 ball century against Pakistan in Dubai.
In this mega event of T20 show, England will definitely rely on Joss Butler to count their success.
Prior to the World Cup nobody might consider Afghanistan as a competitor in the main round of the tournament. But the war stricken passionate cricket loving country has able to make their way through to the main round of the ICC World Twenty20 2016 surpassing ICC’s full member Zimbabwe.
They have some true, spirited performers in their team; the one like Mohammad Shahzad, the unruly batsman with the utmost confidence to destroy the opponent from whichever team he belongs to.
He has scripted the success story of Afghanistan in the recent past and have the ability to depict his name among the top performers of this edition of World Cup.
