Why Team India should win the ICC World T20 2014 trophy?

Team India is definitely the favorite team to win ICC World T20 2014  which is going to take place in Bangladesh starting from March 16. India is placed in Group 2 along with Australia, West Indies, arch rivals Pakistan and Group A Qualifier 1

After winning the inaugural World Cup in 2007, India could not manage to qualify for the knockout stages in any of the subsequent editions. This time the World Cup is scheduled to take place in Bangladesh and with conditions very similar to home, India has a real chance to reach the knockout stages and make their claim for the championship.
 
Here are 6 reasons why India should win the coveted trophy.
 
The Indian captain is a terrific batsman in the shorter forms of the game. He has shown his ability to guide his team through a tough chase or finish a game in a blaze of sixes and fours.
 
India can depend on him to win the game as long as he has the bat in his hands. Contrary to test matches, his captaincy takes a whole new turn in T20s. Evident from his IPL record, he has successfully and very cunningly won games from almost non-winnable positions. If he fires with the bat and gets support from other batsmen, India can find themselves in the finals, vying for the trophy. 
 
 
2. The batting form of Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli has been a true leader with the bat in top order in recent times. His amazing form in recent matches on the tours of South Africa and New Zealand have made him the mainstay of the Indian batting lineup along with M.S.Dhoni
 
His quick feet and dazzling bat-speed are perfect for playing explosive innings at the end or build an inning coming in at the all important number 3 position. His Bradman-esque statistics in chasing a total batting second are proof that if there is a tough total to chase, you can easily count on Virat to do it easily and calmly.
    
    
3. Fielding
India is currently on the most-superior fielding side in the world. Fielders like Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma and the leader of the pack, Ravindra Jadeja have contributed immensely to India’s success at home in shorter formats of the game. They easily stop 25 to 30 runs in the field and snatch some important catches at crucial junctures. 
 
4. Spin Attack
India are going into the World Cup with 3 genuine spinners,  Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra and Ravindra Jadeja in the squad. Add Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh to the mix, and India have perhaps the best spin attack of all the teams in the tournament.
 
The cricket pitches in Bangladesh are going to aid the spin as evident from the Asia Cup that took place recently. India needs to include Amit Mishra in the Playing XI in every match. He is a genuine wicket-taking bowler and has a proven track record in the IPL, where he is the second most wicket taker in the tournament with 3 hat-tricks. The spinning attack is going to make all the difference between the winning team and the rest.
 
 
5. Batting:
Though recent tours have not been so promising for the Indian batting lineup, in familiar conditions, the team would have to keep a lookout for the Indian batting force. 
India has found a better opening combination of Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane. Add the returning Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, M.S.Dhoni, Rohit Sharma to the fold and you have pretty high-rated batsmen in T20s staring down on you. 
 
Counting out their off days, with 2 or 3 of them performing to their full potential and 1-2 having the tournament of their respective careers, India may have a real chance to make it into the knockout stages. 
 
 
6. Experience in Familiar Conditions
Even though 20 overs are not much in an innings for conditions to play any role, but familiarity of conditions plays a very important role. All the T20 tourneys like IPL and the Bangladesh Premier League in the Indian subcontinent has given foreign players a know how of the conditions. India still has an upper hand, knowing how to play on spinning pitches and tackle the issue of wet outfields, thanks to their IPL conditions.
