In the last few years, India have emerged as a strong outfit in all formats of the game. They have taken huge strides under the leadership of their charismatic skipper Virat Kohli. India’s next target is to win the T20 World Cup and they are looking in great shape to win it at the moment. They started this year at the right note by defeating the Blackcaps 5-0 in the T20I series in New Zealand. Let’s take a look at what has changed for the Indian side and 5 of the biggest strengths of Team India in T20Is.
