On the back of suffering a 0-3 thrashing from Team India in the three-match T20 International series, Australian all-rounder Shane Watson put across a cautious forethought ahead of the next month’s mega event of the sport’s shortest format of the game to be held in India.

Watson, who brushed aside his rough patch to pile up a century in the last game against India, insists that India will be the toughest team to beat at the World T20 not only because of their formidable line-up, but also because of their rich form and home advantage.

“I think India will be the toughest team because it’s in their home conditions,” the 34-year-old told “They know their conditions better than anyone and have performed well in big events at home.

With the selectors opting for a blend of young guns and a bunch of experienced guys, Watson feels that India’s squad is well set in all the departments.

“India have a good all-round team; their batting has firepower all the way through, bowling-wise, their spinners are world-class and they have some good quicks,” he mentioned.

“Ashish Nehra is bowling really well and (Jasprit) Bumrah has been a great find for them. They have a really well balanced team so I think they will be a big challenge.”
