Already many cricketers started their prediction about the mega event, in twitter one user asked the former Australian spinner, Brad Hogg, who would be the four semi-finalists.
In a reply, the left-arm wrist-spinner answered “India, New Zealand, England and West Indies. That is on what I have seen into the lead up. These teams seam to have stronger batting depth. #T20WC“
Surprisingly he didn’t think that Australia can make it to the Semi-final. Australia is the dominating team when it’s coming to the other formats of the game. But they are yet to win the world cup in T20 format.
