New Delhi: Former England captain Michael Vaughan has picked India and defending champions West Indies to win the World Twenty20 beginning in Bangladesh March 16. “I am going for India or West Indies… Both have power and plenty of good spin options… But it’s always worth a tipple on Pakistan at WCs,” tweeted Vaughan Thursday.

He added: “Any team from the following could win the T20 WC… India, Aussie, SA, West Indies, Sri Lanka and good outside chances in NZ and Pakistan…”The Indian team for the T20 World Cup is set to leave for Bangladesh on Friday, and  inclusion of Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina, besides the return of skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who had opted out of just concluded Asia Cup due to injury, will strengthen the squad. India, who won the inaugural World T20 in 2007 under the leadership of Dhoni, will play their opener against Pakistan March 21.
