Babar Azam-led team is favourite to win the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 – Faf du Plessis

Faf du Plessis feels that Pakistan will win the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup in the UAE. Du Plessis also added that he hopes to see New Zealand winning the cup as they have come close on a number of occasions in the past.

He also spoke about the performance of South Africa in the global event. The 37-year old praised the team for winning four out of 5 matches in the Super 12 stage.

“Pakistan is the favourite to win it but I hope New Zealand can go all the way. They [New Zealand] have come so close to bagging an ICC trophy in recent years so I do hope they can win it.

Winning four out of five games is a big achievement the team should feel proud of their efforts. The bowling unit was exceptional and it won’t be wrong to say that it was one of the best attacks of the tournament,” said du Plessis in an interview with a local channel.
