India can win T20 World Cup
India is considered to be a strong contender to win the T20 World Cup this year, but there is one team that can break Team India’s dream of winning the trophy.

This team is a threat to India
Almost all the players of West Indies are T20 specialists, who have become stronger by playing T20 leagues around the world.
