Host nation India are, predictably, favourites, ahead of Australia in the World Twenty20 betting odds.
It’s a very competitively priced market though and the eight major cricketing nations are all deemed to have a reasonable chance of Twenty20 World Cup glory. Given the popularity of cricket in India, they seem sure to go well with their passionate support and could be worth backing with any World Twenty20 Cup free bets.
Home advantage makes India worthy favourites, but with all five tournaments to date producing a different winning team, predicting who will claim the World Twenty 20 is far from easy.
Defending champions Sri Lanka are in a state of transition and might be best avoided, but the leading eight teams in the betting will all fancy their chances. It seems fairly remarkable, but Australia has never been Twenty20 World Cup winners. This just might be their year.
As with any major sporting event, there will be numerous World Twenty20 betting previews and World Twenty20 betting tips available across various media outlets as the tournament approaches. There will also be World Twenty20 free bets appearing around this time.
For those unable to get out to India, all World Twenty20 fixtures will be broadcast live by Sky Sports. That being the case, there will be ample opportunity to use any World Twenty20 free bets available whilst watching the action unfold. In addition, ITV 1 & 4 will show match highlights.
The top eight teams will all fancy their chances, as all have players capable of changing the outcome of a match in the space of just a couple of overs with bat or ball.
The “Group of Death” in the Super 10 stage looks to be Group B, featuring India; New Zealand; Pakistan; Australia and one of the first group stage winners.
Group A consists of Sri Lanka; South Africa; West Indies; England and the other first group stage winners. With only two teams qualifying from each group, whoever comes through Group B will certainly fancy themselves as potential World Twenty20 winners.
England look to have a more favourable draw, but it’s by no means an easy group either. They do have the players capable of challenging though and might be worth a Twenty20 World Cup free bet in either individual group games or on the outright market.
The inaugural World Twenty20 cricket tournament was held in 2007 in South Africa, featuring 12 teams, with India defeating Pakistan in the final. World Twenty20 2016 will be the sixth edition of the tournament, which is generally held every two years. The one exception to date was the third tournament which was held in 2010, just a year after the second World Twenty20.
At present Cricket’s World Twenty20 is comprised of 16 teams, consisting of all 10 ICC full members and six associate members (who qualified through the 2015 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifiers).
The associate qualifying teams for World Twenty20 2016 are Scotland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Afghanistan, Hong Kong and Oman.
As for the World Twenty20 fixtures schedule, the top eight teams in the ICC T20 Championship rankings qualify directly to the Super 10 stage. The remaining eight teams (Bangladesh, Zimbabwe and the six associate qualifiers) compete in the first stage, which consists of two groups of four, the winners of each advancing to the Super 10 stage. The Super 10 stage will see the teams split into two groups of five, with the top two teams in each qualifying for the semi-finals.
The appeal of the World Twenty20 for the fans is that the action is usually pretty explosive. Taking advantage of any World Twenty20 free bets available is sure to further enhance your enjoyment of the competition.
