In their last 20 games, Afghanistan has won 10 of them, including a series in Ireland that they lost 3-2. They have, however, been tinkering with their batting order. In the World Cup last year, they defeated Namibia and Scotland, but they dropped three of their other matches. Additionally, because of their reliance on spin, they will perform better on American surfaces. It's sad because they have never defeated Bangladesh in this style.

They were expected victors the previous year, but twelve months later, they played at home and had a stronger team thanks to Tim David's ascent to the middle of the order as a free-hitting batter. A repeat performance wouldn't be shocking because the 26-year-old has already forced Steve Smith out of their side. Because of his poor performance, only Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch appear to have kept Finch in the lineup. Finch has a strike rate of 121 and a 12-month average of 23.47 runs. Maxwell is renowned for his capacity to perform admirably under pressure, and his score of 76 against India in Australia's most recent warm-up game ought to have been sufficient to ignite the captain's fire.

To finish their World Cup preparations, Bangladesh played four games against Zimbabwe, Afghanistan, and the UAE and lost 11. In the tri series in New Zealand, when they faced a whole different set of openers, they likewise dropped all four of their games. The team lacks batting depth as well as firepower, despite the fact that Shakib Al Hazan is still in excellent form and has recently achieved half century against Pakistan, the West Indies, and New Zealand. Bangladesh failed to develop after losing every Super 12s match last season.

England was referred to as “the benchmark” for this format in the three-game series by Matthew Wade of Australia. Since they departed their home last month, Jos Buttler's team has appeared just like it. Despite the injury to Reece Topley, the team remained optimistic. They have Mark Wood, the fastest bowler in the competition, and they provide a wide range of batting alternatives. Despite the fact that bowling is not their strongest suit, if they perform well, they can afford the best.

India failed to qualify for the Super 12. There were several causes, but their careless batting was the most disturbing. They batted first in the critical matches against Pakistan and New Zealand, reaching respectable totals of 151 and 110 runs in their 20 overs, respectively, but were unable to hold on. Rohit Sharma took over for Virat Kohli after the World Cup. This year, they have averaged 8.20 runs per over, good for a world-leading 9.36. Even without Jasprit Bhumrah, who was an excellent bowler in this style, they still have a very menacing appearance.

Ireland is participating in the T20 World Cup for the first time since 2009. It was accomplished by defeating West Indies in the final match of the first stage with an outstanding and convincing victory. Paul Stirling picked up the pace in the game against an undefeated 66, despite the fact that his ability has never been questioned. He will be much more dangerous on his side if he can keep it up. Since being elevated to No. 3, Lorcan Tucker's performance has significantly improved. George Dockrell finishes strong, averaging 52.16 over the last six months with a strike rate of 146, while he averages 40.81.

The Dutch lost to Sri Lanka in their final first-round group game, as told by disappointed player Scott Edwards. They're merely difficult competitions, isn't it, he said? One mistake can ruin you, he warned. With a UAE victory, they moved on to Group 2. Max O'Dowd has been in excellent form, while Bas de Leede has been their most threatening batter and bowler. However, they score too slowly (6.40 runs per over in their group), thus they won't be able to withstand the higher level of competition.

New Zealand

You probably recognise a lot of the New Zealand squad members from their participation in the final the year before. Any team that features Trent Boult, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson, and Kane Williamson is going to be extremely risky. Michael Bracewell and Finn Allen, who has consistently been a strong opener (31-year-old, who had never played in any format for his country seven months prior, but now is in every one). In the first game, they will face Australia, a team they haven't defeated since 2011.

Shaheen Shah Afridi's seam attack is undoubtedly the best in the tournament. He also has the most reliable batting pairing in the form of Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam, who have combined for 840 runs and an average 49.41. The top order has some problems, but as England showed in their seven-game win there last month, they are not impossible to beat. They were the most exciting of the World Cup teams and should be more dangerous on these surfaces if it is possible.

South Africa

South Africa defeated England in three games this summer, despite David Miller scoring only 30 runs. In the Indian series, he showed what he can do. He started with a three-ball duck, followed by a brilliant, unbeaten 47 ball 106 and a five-ball 19. South Africa has a trio with big-scoring bats. Rillee Rossouw, Tristan Stubbs and Miller all have strike rates above 180. Rossouw and Miller both average over 50. The captain Temba Bavuma, who has an average of 10.66 and a strike rate 82, is less promising. He would not be able to compete with the other sides in this competition.

Sri Lanka

After being deemed outsiders by many, Sri Lanka was able to make it through the opening group despite a defeat to Namibia. This earned them a spot in Group 1. Chris Silverwood also made it to Group 1, where he reunited with England. Dushmantha Chamela and Dunushka Gunathilaka, both of whom were victims of muscle tear injuries, have had to be treated by the team. They were clearly not prepared for their first match, but they have improved and are now match-ready.

Zimbabwe had the advantage of playing their qualifying tournament at home. They won five of the five matches and swept through the final with five wins from five. Their all-rounder Sikandar Raza scored 228 runs, which is an average of 41.2 runs at a strike rate 154.50. This trend has continued into the World Cup. Raza was not only Zimbabwe’s top run-scorer, but he also ranked second among their bowlers on economy rate (just after Tendai Chatara), and second on wickets, (after Blessing Muzarabani).
