Waugh said,“Australia is definitely in with a chance (to win the tournament), a good chance, but India right now would be pretty comfortable with where they’re sitting. The subcontinent teams on the turning slow pitches of India will probably hold a significant advantage. India are probably the firm favourites but anything is possible.”

“If you get some momentum going into the bigger games (and) one or two of your key players finding form then it is possible for any team to win that (World T20),” he added.

Former captain Steve Waugh also praises the present captain Steve Smith, saying that he done a brilliant job for Australia in the last one year.

Waugh said,”Smith done a really fantastic job, guys want to play with him, he leads by example and the last 12 months he really hasn’t put a foot wrong.”

Steve Smith has a fantastic record in Test matches with 7 wins, 4 draws and zero lose as a captain of Test for Australia.
