However, we have seen that the world’s bookmakers have the event priced up so we will look over the odds and stats for this year’s event.

T20 World Cup Stats

Here you will find the latest rankings of the teams and players in the men’s game. These are the official ICC World Rankings using their points-based systems. 

Current T20 Team Rankings

Teams and their ratings

  1. 272 – England
  2. 270 – India
  3. 267 – Australia
  4. 260 – Pakistan
  5. 253 – New Zealand
  6. 251 – South Africa
  7. 230 – Afganistan
  8. 229 – Bangladesh
  9. 228 – West Indies
  10. 228 – Sri Lanka
  11. 190 – Ireland
  12. 188 – Zimbabwe
  13. 186 – UAE
  14. 182 – Scotland
  15. 180 – Nepal

The main contenders for the tournament come from the top 5 in the world. Rated as no 2 India are the favourites as they are playing at home. There could be changes to these rankings before the tournament stats with many T20 series taking place across the summer.

For us, the team who should be higher and are an outsider in the betting is the West Indies. We have seen the power they have at the international level and can be a threat to anyone on their day. 

T20 All Rounder Rankings

This list is an odd one to use as some of the players we would classify as bowlers but this is the ICC’s ranking system! 

  1. 285 – AFG – Mohammad Nabi
  2. 268 –  BAN -Shakib Al Hasan 
  3. 226 – AUS -Glenn Maxwell
  4. 194 – SCO – Richard Berrington
  5. 179 – ZIM – Sean Williams 
  6. 170 – SCO – Gareth Delany
  7. 159 – OMA – Khawar Ali
  8. 153 – KEN – Collins Obuya
  9. 152 – UAE – Rohan Mustafa
  10. 135 – OMA – Zeeshan Maqsood

We are not fans of the ratings for all-rounders as it’s not a true picture of the top players in the game, compared to the other rankings. The one to watch from the lost is Aussie Glenn Maxwell. 

T20 Bowlers Rankings

This list is a real who’s who of international cricket! Subject to fitness they should all be playing at the World Cup.

  1. 742 – NZ – Trent Boult
  2. 708 – AFG – Mujeeb Ur Rahman
  3. 697 – IND – Jasprit Bumrah
  4. 678 – BAN Mehedi Hasan
  5. 672 – ENG – Chris Woakes
  6. 665 – SA – Kagiso Rabada
  7. 660 – AUS – Josh Hazelwood
  8. 653 – NZ – Matt Henry
  9. 647 – PAK – Mohammad Amir
  10. 646 – AUS – Pat Cummings

From the list, you would expect a few of them towards the top of the top blowers list by the end of the tournament. 

We think the top will be between Boult, Burah, Rabada and Archer. Archer isn’t in the top 10 currently but is a very experienced T20 bowler on India wickets.

T20 Batting Rankings

Now for the big hitters! With India’s captain as the top-ranked player – Kohli should have a big tournament on home soil. 

  1. 868 – IND – Virat Kohli
  2. 837 – PAK – Babar Azam
  3. 836 – IND – Rohit Sharma
  4. 810 – NZ – Ross Taylor
  5. 791 – AUS – Aaron Finch
  6. 790 – SA – Du Plessis
  7. 775 – ENG – Jonny Bairstow
  8. 773 – AUS – David Warner
  9. 773 – WI – Shai Hope
  10. 757 – NZ – Kane Williamson

A lot of these players are familiar with the Indian wickets from playing in the IPL regularly. Aside from the Indian players, who will do well, du Plessis and Babar Azam are two to watch.
