T20 World Cup Predictions 2023

The T20 World Cup 2023, currently underway, is being hosted by Australia. The competition will begin in October 2023. Eight teams divided into two groups played 12 qualifier matches. Four teams have joined the already qualified eight teams in the Super 12 stage of the competition.

Defending champions Australia were expected to exploit their home advantage to retain the title they won last year. However, other teams in their group, mainly New Zealand and England, made it tough for the Aussies. I have taken this into account in my T20 World Cup predictions.

What Are My T20 World Cup 2023 Astrology Predictions?

In this T20 World Cup predictions article, I provide my comprehensive predictions for the 2023 T20 World Cup. As a cricket enthusiast, I would like to share the following T20 World Cup predictions. Note: all my ICC T20 World Cup predictions are based on my expertise borne of experience.

T20 World Cup Prediction Astrology

My ‘who will win T20 World Cup’ astrology is based on the current form displayed by the various teams. This world cup has had its share of upsets. Unfortunately, inclement weather has also played a role in teams’ fortunes. I have also based my T20 World Cup predictions on these weather-related upsets.

T20 World Cup 2023Predictions for the Final

This is a tough one to predict. The toss is likely to prove crucial. The match will be a classic battle between the best bowling side (Pakistan) and the best batting unit (England).
I will stick my neck out and predict that Pakistan will defy the bookmakers’ odds to beat England in the final to win their second T20 World Cup trophy.

How the two finalists got to the title clash

In this part, I consider how Pakistan and England won their semi-final games versus New Zealand and India, respectively

How Pakistan reached the finals

Ahead of the game on 9 November, conventional wisdom said that Pakistan’s best chance of winning would be to bat first. They would hope to give their strong bowling attack some runs to defend.
However, New Zealand won the toss and opted to bat first on a good batting track in Sydney. Carrying on from where he left off in the game against Bangladesh, Shaheen Afridi provided his side the breakthrough. He had Finn Allen LBW on the third ball of the innings. Conway was run out on the last ball of the powerplay to reduce his side to 38 for 2.

Md Nawaz dealt a third blow when he took a return catch to dismiss dangerman Glenn Phillips. At 49/3 in 8 overs, New Zealand appeared to have squandered away the advantage of winning the toss. Though skipper Williamson and Daryl Mitchell got together to add 68 runs for the 4th wicket, the runs came at a sluggish rate. Despite some late fireworks from Mitchell, the Kiwis finished with just 152/4 in their allotted overs. Afridi (2/24) was the pick of the Pakistan bowlers, while Mitchell (53 from 35 balls) top scored for New Zealand.

Against a fickle Pakistan batting line up, New Zealand would have considered that a competitive total. However, openers Babar Azam and M Rizwan came good when it mattered. They put on 105 for the first wicket. Though they took nearly 13 overs to get the runs, the asking rate was under control. Pakistan cruised to the target with 7 wickets and 5 balls to spare. Rizwan was the most successful batter with 57 from 43 balls. For New Zealand, Boult (2/33) tasted the most success with the ball.

In the end, it was a perfect day of cricket for Pakistan. They had bowled with discipline to restrict the runs on a good batting wicket

How England reached the finals

Before the match on 10 November, there was much talk about the exciting prospect of an India-Pakistan final. Also, a good batting wicket at Adelaide with shorter square boundaries was a promising sign for the strong Indian batting line up.
England won the toss and elected to field. India skipper Rohit Sharma, when asked, said that had he won the toss, he would have chosen to bat. England struck in the 2nd over, when Woakes had Rahul caught behind. Kohli joined Sharma to engage in a steady albeit slow stand. The partnership ended when Sharma skied a ball from Jordan to be caught.

Suryakumar Yadav, fresh from his exploits versus Zimbabwe, flattered to deceive and left, caught in the outfield off Rashid, to reduce India to 75/3 in the 12th over. Hardik and Kohli got together in a stand reminiscent of their match-winning partnership against Pakistan. When Kohli was dismissed, India were poised at 136/4 in 18 overs. Pandya who had begun to slog in the 18th over, helped India to add 32 runs more in the last two overs. At 168/6, India appeared to have the runs on the board, though perhaps 15 runs fewer than they would have wanted. Hardik top scored with 63 off 33 balls. For England, Jordan (3/43), playing in place of the injured Mark Wood, was the most successful bowler.

India believed they had a competitive score on the board. So, nobody would have been prepared for the England onslaught that followed. England skipper Buttler set the tone with three fours in Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s opening over. Eight more runs came from Arshdeep’s first over followed by 12 more from Bhuvneshwar’s next. India had conceded 33 in the first 3 powerplay overs without taking a wicket. Rohit Sharma got into a defensive mindset and took Arshdeep off the attack.

Where India needed early wickets, they were instead trying to stem the flow of runs. At the end of the powerplay, England were cruising along at 63/0. After 10 overs, they were 98/0. Mercifully for India, the massacre ended in the 16th over, when Buttler hoisted Shami for a six over long on. At 170/0, England had thrashed India by 10 wickets to advance to a final date with Pakistan at Melbourne. Buttler remained unbeaten on 80, while Hales made 86. For India, Axar Patel and Arshdeep who conceded 7.5 runs an over were the most economical.

T20 World Cup Predictions by Group Stage

T20 World Cup 2022 began on 16 October with the qualifiers. In the qualifiers, 8 teams divided equally into groups A and B competed for four spots in the Super 12.

T20 World Cup Predictions

Qualifiers Group A

This group consisted of Sri Lanka, Namibia, UAE, and the Netherlands. In keeping with my t20 World Cup predictions, Sri Lanka topped this group and Netherlands finished second.

Qualifiers Group B

West Indies, Scotland, Ireland, and Zimbabwe were the four teams in this group. This group was much more competitive than Group A. West Indies who were predicted to top the group crashed out. Zimbabwe and Ireland finished in the top two positions respectively.

Afghanistan, Australia, England, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and South Africa had already qualified for the Super 12 by virtue of their performance in the T20 World Cup 2021. In this part of my T20 World Cup predictions, I consider the performances of the teams in each group. I narrate how the semi-final spots were ascertained.

T20 World Cup Predictions

The 12 teams of the Super 12 were divided into two groups, 1 and 2. Sri Lanka, qualifier group A winners, and Ireland, qualifier group B runners up, joined group 1. Likewise, Netherlands, qualifier group A runners up, and Zimbabwe, qualifier group B winners, joined Super 12 group 2.

Super 12 Group 1

This group included Australia, New Zealand, England, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and Ireland. As predicted by me, New Zealand topped this group. England and Australia were involved in a tussle to take second place and gain a semi-final spot. Eventually, England finished ahead of Australia based on a superior Net Run Rate.

Super 12 Group 2

India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Netherlands defined this group. The competition for the top spot in this group was mainly between India and South Africa. I had predicted that India would beat Zimbabwe in their last group match to secure the top spot. However, an upset win for Netherlands over South Africa paved the way for Pakistan to secure a semi-final spot by beating Bangladesh.

Which Team Has More Chances to Win T20 World Cup

Bookmakers make India the favourites to lift the T20 World Cup trophy in 2023. In this part of my T20 World Cup Predictions, I consider the performances of seven teams. These are the ones that were still in the fray until the last day of matches in their respective groups.

In the following table, I have shown the odds attracted by these top teams before the semi-final spots were decided. I have also added their related %-age chances of winning. This should help clarify how the bookmakers’ odds were justified by the points tables in this T20 World Cup

I will round off my ‘who will win 2022 t20 World Cup’ astrology with a performance analysis of the top teams:

India India Flag

India began their World Cup campaign in sensational fashion in their opener versus Pakistan on 23 October. From a losing position, Rohit Sharma’s wards won a last-ball thriller, thanks to a brilliant innings by Virat Kohli.

India consolidated their position at the top of the table with a facile 56-run win over Netherlands. However, South Africa had other ideas. After restricting India’s strong batting line up to a modest score of 133/9, the Proteas won with five wickets to spare.

India won their next match against Bangladesh, after rain (and Litton Das) threatened to inflict an unlikely loss. As expected, India won their remaining match against Zimbabwe to top their Super 12 group.

How the players have shaped up:

In a strong batting order, the openers disappointed. While Rahul and Sharma scored a fifty each, neither player set the stands on fire. Rahul in particular had three single-digit dismissals, prompting speculation that he could be dropped. Among the others, Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav (SKY) were brilliant. In fact, SKY’s exploits helped him to the top of the T20I batter rankings. Unexpectedly, Hardik Pandya struggled with the bat.

In Bumrah’s absence, the Indian bowlers did better than expected. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep took wickets during the powerplay. Shami found his bearings while Hardik also pitched in with useful wickets. The main disappointment was Ashwin who was preferred over Chahal owing to a surfeit of left handers in rival line ups.

India could choose to replace Karthik and Ashwin with Pant and Chahal in the knockout phase of the competition.

England england flag

On paper, at least, England are arguably the most balanced team of the T20 World Cup 2022. They have seven bowlers and nine batters. That said, the execution has not always lived up to the promise. This was patently obvious in their five-run loss to Ireland in a rain-shortened game.

Before that loss, Jos Buttler’s men registered a convincing win over Afghanistan. Their third match versus Australia was washed out, leaving England in need of wins in both their remaining group games.

In their crunch game versus table toppers New Zealand, the England top order fired. On the back of brilliant half-tons from both openers, England took a giant step towards reaching the knockout stage. Their 20-run win ensured that they continued to stay ahead of Australia on the points table.

They needed to beat Sri Lanka in their last group game, a feat they accomplished despite a few hiccups.

How the players have shaped up:

After their showing against New Zealand, all of England’s top order batters, barring Stokes, had played key innings. Harry Brooks is yet to justify playing at number four ahead of the likes of Moeen Ali. The presence of a player of the calibre of Liam Livingstone at number seven speaks volumes for the batting depth. Importantly for England, Stokes worked himself into some sort of form against Sri Lanka.

The England bowlers have stood up to be counted. Apart from the sheer pace of Mark Wood, the squad have relied, in turn, on Woakes, Stokes, and Curran to deliver with the seaming ball. They also have bench strength in the form of Jordan. In the spin department, England have occasionally played Rashid in addition to Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone. Their embarrassment of bowling riches is surely the envy of England’s rivals.

New Zealand NZ Flag

By thrashing the defending champions, New Zealand made a statement of intent in their opener versus Australia on 22 October. The facile 89-run win was built on the back of solid batting supported by incisive bowling.

After their next match versus Afghanistan was washed out, the Kiwis registered another facile victory, this time versus Sri Lanka.

Despite a 17-run loss to England in their third outing, New Zealand continued to top the table. At the time of writing this article, New Zealand have beaten Ireland to top the table an qualify for the knockouts.

How the players have shaped up:

The New Zealand batters have been the most consistent performers of the competition so far. All of their top and middle order – Allen, Conway, Williamson, Phillips, Neesham and Mitchell – have made useful runs. Glenn Phillips has been the stand out performer – his 62 off 36 balls against England will be long remembered. Williamson has not been far behind with a match-winning innings of 61 from 35 balls against Ireland. The new Zealand skipper added another brilliant fifty in his team’s last group game versus Ireland.

Among the bowlers, Southee has been brilliant. Boult have given him great support in the power play overs. Santner has been arguably the most impressive, effectively putting the brakes on rival teams’ scoring rate in the middle overs. Lockie Ferguson and Ish Sodhi have also chipped in with a few wickets.

I must make special mention of New Zealand’s brilliant fielding. For instance, some spectacular catches and run saving efforts made the difference in the crunch game against Australia.

South Africa south africa flag

The Proteas’ World Cup campaign began on an unfortunate note when their opening game versus Zimbabwe got washed out. They were tantalisingly close to winning when the match was called off.

However, Bavuma’s wards made amends with a massive win over Bangladesh that helped boost their NRR. A brilliant win against India took South Africa to the top of the points table. With five points from three games, they would only need to win one of their remaining two games to gain a semi-final spot.

South Africa lost their rain-hit game versus Pakistan to leave the race for semi-final spots open. They were expected to win their remaining game against Netherlands to qualify for the knockout phase. That game ended in a shock loss that I have described later in this article.

How the players have shaped up:

The South Africa batting has been up and down. Opener Quinton de Kock failed versus Pakistan when it mattered most. Riley Rossouw has scored a hundred, while the likes of Miller and Markram have had useful contributions down the order. The most intriguing aspect has been skipper Bavuma’s inclusion in the team, given his terrible lack of form.

The South African bowlers did well in the group games. Ngidi and Nortje were outstanding while Rabada played a supporting role. Parnell took some useful wickets as did Shamsi.

However, Rabada and Ngidi let their side down in the crunch game versus Netherlands. The pair went for 72 runs in six overs, a major factor in their 13-run loss.

Australia australia flag

As defending champions, Australia were pre-tournament favourites, particularly as they were playing at home. Much water has flowed under the proverbial bridge since their World Cup opener versus New Zealand on 22 October.

The hosts began their campaign disastrously, losing to trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand by 89 runs. More than the loss itself, the margin of defeat could continue to haunt the defending champions. Australia got back to winning ways against Sri Lanka, beating the South Asian side by 7 wickets.

Thereafter, a washed-out game versus England followed by a 42-run win over Ireland improved their situation somewhat. However, Australia’s NRR continues to be negative. Consequently, Australia are tied on points with England but trail them on NRR.

Finch’s wards were expected to beat Afghanistan in their last group game. However, their prospects of gaining a semi-final spot appear bleak. Their only way ahead would be to beat Afghanistan by a massive margin and get ahead of England on NRR. As things transpired, Afghanistan nearly beat Australia who won by merely 4 runs.

How the players have shaped up:

With Glenn Maxwell beginning to contribute with the bat, Australia’s batting was looking solid. While Finch was the man in form, Stoinis played a couple of great innings, including a spectacular 59 off only 18 balls versus Sri Lanka. The likes of Marsh and Tim David added to the firepower in the death overs.

If the wins against Sri Lanka and Ireland were anything to go by, the Australian bowlers were beginning to find their rhythm. Australia had six frontline bowlers including four seamers and two spinners. Mitchell Marsh also chipped in with the odd over. I expected Australia to thrive if they could somehow get to the semi-finals. But that was not to be. The 89-run margin of their loss to New Zealand cost Australia a place in the knockouts.

Pakistan pakistan flag

Pakistan began their opening game versus India on a positive note when they posted a competitive score on a two-paced wicket. Barring a spectacular knock by Virat Kohli, Pakistan should have won that game.

Babar Azam’s men did not help their cause when they contrived to lose their next match against Zimbabwe by a solitary run. However, they pulled things back a little when they beat Netherlands convincingly.

Their twin losses left Pakistan’s hopes of reaching the knockout stage hinging on other team’s performances. For instance, if India were to beat South Africa, Pakistan could have qualified by winning their remaining games. As things transpired, South Africa beat India to go to the top of the table.

Pakistan kept alive their hopes by beating South Africa in a rain-curtailed game. After South Africa’s shock loss to Netherlands, Pakistan grabbed a semi-final slot by beating Bangladesh in their last game.

How the players have shaped up:

Pakistan’s batters have let them down. Had the openers contributed a few runs in the game against Zimbabwe, the team would have remained in contention. Iftikhab Ahmed has been a lone success. In fact, Ahmed turned around his side’s fortunes with a brilliant half-century against South Africa. In the bargain, Pakistan recovered from a precarious 43 for 4 to post a match-winning score of 185/9.

The bowlers have been consistently brilliant, with Haris Rauf and Shadab Khan the standout performers. However, the Pakistan management have often opted to go with only five bowlers, a decision that cost them dearly against India. However, Pakistan appear to have arrived at their best playing eleven, going by their last game versus Bangladesh. With Shaheen Afridi regaining his rhythm, Pakistan will be raring to go.

Bangladesh

Bangladesh have been the surprise packet of the World Cup. They began their campaign with a brilliant 9-run win over Netherlands. However, they stumbled to a facile loss against South Africa. That was followed by another thrilling 3-run victory over Zimbabwe. In their next game against India, Litton Das nearly pulled off an unlikely win. The opener’s whirlwind knock of 60 from only 27 balls ended with an unfortunate run out.

How the players have shaped up:

Overall, Bangladesh’s batters have not performed to potential. Das’s innings against India was an exception. Likewise, his opener partner Najmul Hasan Shanto scored a half-century against Zimbabwe. Much more was expected of skipper Shakib batting at number three than he has done.

With three world class bowlers in Shakib, Mustafizur and Taskin Ahmed, Bangladesh’s bowling line up has made a difference. Mossadek Hossain’s ability to withstand pressure while bowling the last over against Zimbabwe won his side the game.

T20 World Cup Top cricket player predictions

Now, I come to what are definitely my favourite T20 World Cup predictions: top batter and top bowler.

Which Batter Will Score the Most Runs?

The players with the most opportunities are obviously the top order batters of the various teams. Several of them including Netherlands’ O’Dowd and Sri Lanka’s Kusal Mendis have performed brilliantly in the ongoing World Cup. However, I predict that India’s ace batsman Virat Kohli will finish with the most runs in the competition.

Which Bowler Will Take the Most Wickets?

There are several outstanding bowlers in the fray. Currently, Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga leads the pack. The only player who seems capable of catching up with Hasaranga is India’s Arshdeep Singh. While Hasaranga has finished his quota of matches, Arshdeep could end up playing two more, the semi-final and the final. I predict that Hasaranga will finish with the most wickets in the T20 World Cup 2022

How the four semi-final spots were filled

In this section, I discuss how the four semi-finalists won their crucial last group matches to earn semi-final spots.

How New Zealand qualified for the semi-finals

In a must-win game versus Ireland on 4 November, New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat. The openers gave the Kiwis a great start, putting on 52 before Allen departed in the last powerplay over. Williamson joined Conway at the wicket to continue the innings in the same vein. The New Zealand captain eventually lost his wicket in the 19th over, with the scoreboard reading 174/4. Despite the loss of two more wickets, New Zealand at 185/6 had the runs on the board. Skipper Williamson top scored with 61 of 35 balls. For Ireland, Josh Little who took 3 for 22 was the most successful bowler.

Ireland began their reply on a positive note by putting on 68 for the first wicket. But once Balbirnie was out in the 9th over, they lost wickets at a steady rate to be reduced to 102/5 in 15 overs. The required rate had risen to more than 16 runs an over. That was a bridge too far for Ireland who finished the innings at 150/9 to hand New Zealand a place in the semi-finals. Stirling top scored for Ireland with 37 from balls. Ferguson (3/22) was New Zealand’s most successful bowler. Southee, Santner and Sodhi took two wickets each.

The win left New Zealand with 7 points and an NRR beyond the reach of England or Australia.

How England qualified for the semi-finals

After Australia edged out Afghanistan in their last group match, all eyes were on the upcoming England versus Sri Lanka game. The result of the match would decide whether England or Australia got the second semi-final spot from Group 1. With England ahead of Australia on NRR, a win in the game would guarantee England a place in the last four.

England restricted Sri Lanka in their last group match to a modest score after the South Asians got off to a reasonable start. At one stage, Sri Lanka were 84 for 2 in the 11th over. From that position of comfort, Sri Lanka lost regular wickets to finish at 141/8 at the end of their innings. Dasun Shanaka’s men were possibly guilty of aiming for a very high score on a wicket that became increasingly slower.

In reply, the England openers appeared to continue from where they had left off in their match with New Zealand. At the end of the powerplay, England were 70 without loss, and the Sri Lankans appeared dejected. Then the spinners struck. Hasaranga dismissed both openers to leave England at 82/2. Sri Lanka tightened the screws to reduce their rivals to 113/5 in 15 overs. The loss of Curran’s wicket on the last ball of the 18th over left England needing 13 runs from 12 balls. With Ben Stokes still at the crease, it proved to be a walk in the park as England got over the line without further loss of wickets.

How India qualified for the semi-finals

India played Zimbabwe in their last group game on 6 November. Earlier, Netherlands had beaten South Africa, a result that assured India of a place in the semi-finals.

Zimbabwe won the toss and elected to field. The Indian batting power house proved too strong for Zimbabwe. Even after they lost Rishabh Pant in the 14th over to be reduced to 101/4, India appeared set for a big score. As it transpired, Suryakumar Yadav played a blinder of an innings and helped his team to a formidable 186/5. KL Rahul also played a substantial knock, with 51 from 35 balls. For Zimbabwe, Sean Williams (2/9) was the most successful bowler.

Zimbabwe began their reply on a disastrous note, losing opener Madhevere to the first ball. A regular fall of wickets left them gasping for breath at 5/36 in the over. They were eventually bowled out for 115 with only Sikandar Raza (34) and Burl (35) showing any intent. For India, Ashwin (3/22) was the most successful bowler while all of the other bowlers got wickets too.

How Pakistan qualified for the semi-finals

Netherlands had beaten South Africa before the Pakistan versus Bangladesh game on 6 November. So, both teams knew that the winner of the match would get a semi-final spot.

Electing to field, Bangladesh (70/1) appeared set for a good score at the half-way stage. However, a couple of wickets in the 11th over, including the controversial dismissal of Shakib Al Hasan, brought Pakistan back into the game. A steady loss of wickets helped by a brilliant second spell from Shaheen Afridi saw Shakib Al Hasan’s men restricted to 127 for eight. Apart from Afridi (4/22), Haris Rauf, Shadab Khan and Iftikhar Ahmed grabbed wickets. For Bangladesh, opener Najmul Hossein Shanto (54 off 48 balls) played an outstanding innings.

In their reply, the Pakistan openers began steadily albeit slowly to put on 57 runs before Babar Azam got out in the 11th over. The loss of Rizwan’s wicket soon after put the brakes on the scoring. After 15 overs, Pakistan needed 36 more runs with seven wickets in hand. However, Mohammed Haris and Shan Masood repaired the faith of the Pakistan selectors to get the team across the line with nearly 2 overs to spare. Rizwan top scored with 32 from as many balls. For Bangladesh, Nasum Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, and Ebadot Hossein took a wicket each. The win ensured that Pakistan, with six points, trumped South Africa, with five, to book a semi-final spot.

Greatest Upset: How South Africa Exited the World Cup

A win in their last game against Netherlands would give South Africa a place in the semi-finals. It was a tailor-made situation as the Proteas had never lost to an associate member.

South Africa began the game on the right note, winning the toss and electing to field. The Netherlands innings was off to a good start with an opening partnership of 58 before Myburgh was out in the ninth over. After 18 overs, Netherlands on 127/4 appeared set for a modest score. But the Proteas were ill-prepared for the Dutch assault in the last two overs that resulted in 31 runs scored.

Finishing at 158 for 4, Netherlands had put a competitive total on board. All four top order batsmen got among the runs; Colin Ackerman (41 off 26 balls) was the standout performer. For South Africa, Nortje (1/10) was the most impressive bowler. Maharaj (2/) and Markram (1/16) were the other successful bowlers. Rabada and Ngidi went for 72 runs in the six overs between the pacemen.

In their reply, South Africa had made 21 runs when they lost Quinton De Kock in the third over. At 39 for 1 in the 6th over, the Proteas appeared to be cruising along. After Temba Bavuma lost his wicket on the last ball of the powerplay, Roussouw and Markram steadied the ship. At 63/2 in the 10th over, South Africa appeared comfortably on way to a deserved win.

However, in the space of 20 balls between the 13th and 16th overs, the match was turned on its head. South Africa never recovered from the loss of Roussouw, Markram and Miller’s wickets and finished at 145 for 8 to hand Netherlands a famous win. The hero of Netherlands’ bowling effort was Brandon Glover who dismissed Roussouw, Miller and Parnell to return figures of 3/9 in two overs.
