Stars who can set the World T20 alight

Predicting the ultimate winner of the upcoming World Twenty20 could be as risky as guessing the London weather, but it requires no rocket science to conclude that the champions’ campaign would be propelled by some electrifying performances. Not only the winner, every side in the March 15-April 3 cricket extravaganza has players who have the potential to emerge as heroes in the battle between the willow and the leather. For India — the hosts who won the inaugural edition of the tournament back in 2007 — top-order talisman Virat Kohli is on a scoring spree. The aggressive man has struck four 50s in his last seven T20 outings with an unbeaten 90 against Australia.

The Delhi boy would be raring to carry his brilliant form into the World T20 and help his side better the runners-up finish in the previous edition. Rohit Sharma has a somewhat incredible up-and-down graph. He might delightfully smash a delivery right into the stands, but could end up edging the next ball behind the wicket.
