The ninth edition of the biennial cricketing extravaganza, the T20 World Cup, will take place from June 1 to 29 in the USA and the Caribbean. The fans are going to see 20 of the best teams in the shortest format of the game play against each other to win the coveted T20 trophy after a month of gruelling cricketing action.

Notably, the defending champions England, Australia, and India are few of the top favourites to win the upcoming ICC event, but the rest of the team do have the ability to take home the world title as well. In this article, SportsTiger looks at three underdog teams to watch out for in the T20 World Cup 2024.



Afghanistan has been one of the fastest rising cricket nations in the last decade or so, with the recent run of big results for them in the ODI World Cup 2023 solidifying their status among one of the best teams in the sport. Captained by their talisman Rashid Khan, there is a great blend of youth and experience in the Afghanistan cricket team, including players like Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Azmatullah Omarzai, Mohammad Nabi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Noor Ahmad, and Naveen-ul-Haq, who could be crucial performers in their quest to go all the way in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
