India’s T20 World Cup squad is expected to be announced by the BCCI before the end of this month, and the interest around that transcends boundaries, which shows in the words of former Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake.
The T20 World Cup is scheduled to be co-hosted by the USA and the West Indies from June 2 to 29, and Blake, who is a known cricket fan, is undoubtedly looking forward to the tournament and watching the Indian team play in the Caribbean islands.However, India, who begin their campaign on June 5, play all the group matches in the US.

Blake, who is perhaps also keeping a close eye on the ongoing Indian Premier League, believes that such is talent pool in India that the BCCI can send three teams to the T20 World Cup.

India are placed alongside Pakistan, Ireland, Canada and the United States in Group A. After kicking off the campaign against Ireland on June 5 in New York, India will play archrivals Pakistan on June 9 at the same venue – Nassau County International Cricket Stadium.
