T20 World Cup 2024: top teams selected finishers based on form

In the Twenty20 format, keeping a good strike rate is more important than scoring runs. To score as many runs as possible with fewer balls played should be the goal. The lower middle-order hitters have the job of providing the club with a proper finish, while the middle-order and top-order players primarily aim to provide solidity and anchor the innings.

These strong hitters are designated as finishers, yet they seldom receive many opportunities to have a significant influence. Finishers will be crucial to their team's success in the 2024 T20 World Cup, which gets underway on June 2. Let's examine the top finishers based on their current play.

Top 10 teams selected finishers based on form

10. Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a formidable bowling team, particularly when it comes to spin. But both their finishing and their batting lineup were a little under par. Mahmudullah, an experienced player, and all-rounder Mahedi Hasan will contribute to their innings being finished well.

9. Pakistan

Pakistan possesses a youthful and experienced side that is well-balanced. They will look on veteran players Shadab Khan, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Imad Wasim to provide a thrilling finish to their innings. Leg-spinner Abrar Ahmed and wicketkeeper Azam Khan, who bat in the bottom order, can potentially contribute.

8. Sri Lanka

Since 2014, Sri Lanka has not triumphed in the T20 World Cup. This season, they have strong batting and bowling teams, but their finishers are not as potent as previous ones. The Lankan line-up's finishers are all-rounders Dasun Shanaka and Dhananjaya De Silva, and veteran cricketer Angelo Mathews. Additionally, Captain Wanindu Hasaranga might arrive with a few crucial runs in the bottom order.

7. New Zealand

In the competition, New Zealand hopes to put a stop to their pursuit of the limited-overs championship. They have a strong hitting lineup, but they are a little weaker in the finishing department. This function is assigned to Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Jimmy Neesham, and Mitchell Santner. Interestingly, Santner has had few opportunities in the 2024 IPL and hasn't produced anything noteworthy, while Phillips hasn't participated in a single match.

6. Afghanistan

Afghanistan has an abundance of excellent all-around players. Karim Janat, Nangeyalia Kharote, and Azmatullah Omarzai can provide the squad with a strong finish. Rashid Khan, the captain, and veteran campaigner Mohammad Nabi will be in the bottom middle-order. Both players are formidable finishers who can contribute to the team's goal of putting up a competitive total.

India, the defending champions, have a lot of possibilities for finishing, but the administration is concerned about their present play. This position has been given to all-around Axar Patel, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, and Hardik Pandya. Vice-captain Pandya had a difficult time performing during the IPL, but Dube faltered towards the close of the campaign. A strong end to their innings may also be achieved by middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav, and wicketkeepers Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson.

4. Australia

With several options for finishers who can take games away from opponents, Australia, the dominant team in international cricket, hopes to win a second Twenty20 title. Veteran players Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis will guard the middle order, while Cameron Green and Tim David will do the necessary work in the lower middle order. Should Josh Inglis fail to bat in the top order, the keeper-batter will join other finishers.

3. England

Will Jacks and Jonny Bairstow are top-order contenders, but they can also bat deep at an incredible strike rate. Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, and Sam Curran will provide the team with lower-order firepower. All of these players combined make the England squad one of the best batting units in the main event. It will be difficult to identify the finishers in the squad.

2. West Indies

The West Indies are the first team that springs to mind when you hear about the T20 format. There will always be powerful players on their team who can ruthlessly take down opponents. Power-hitters Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Shimron Hetmyer, Powell, Jason Holder, Sherfane Rutherford, and Romario Shepherd are among the many players the Windies have this time around. If they were all together, they could all alter the outcome of the game.

1. South Africa

The batting unit of South Africa is their main asset. They can end their innings with a bang because of their potent middle and lower middle order. Young gun Tristan Stubbs, David Miller, and Heinrich Klaasen have been selected to fill the finisher's role. In the just-finished 2024 IPL, Miller had a respectable season, but Klaasen and Stubbs were brutal opponents the entire time. Bowlers will have a hard time stopping these three when they're in the zone. Additionally, lower-order batsman Marco Jansen, an all-around player, may provide some significant runs.
