Akram: India favourites for T20 WC

Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram said that India are the favourites for the T20 WC.

In an exclusive interview given to ESPN Akram maintained that India teams historic victory in New Zealand was a testimonial to India's supremacy in the cricket world.

"The way this Indian team is playing, it shows that Indian cricket is on a high, the team is on a high and since the T20 World Cup starts in a couple of months, I would say India who are also the defending champions start favourites for the trophy," said Akram.

"As a team India were better. They are continuously improving, their leader is also improving a good deal," Akram said.

Former Pakistan also hailed Wasim Akram as the best fast bowler in the world as of today. The Sultan of Swing also praised Gautam Gambhir saying he is in the top league, and can be compared to some of the best newcomers of recent times.

According to Akram, India, Australia and South Africa are creating a power house in the cricketing fraternity and the other teams have been left behind because they are nowhere close to the quality of these three sides.
