T20 World Cup: I think India are probably the favourites, says Brett Lee

"But saying that, I think India are probably the favourites with their top four or five batters and their bowling attack. I have KL Rahul down as the top run-scorer in the tournament and Mohammed Shami to be the leading wicket-taker, purely going on the last few months. So if they deliver and India have one of the leading run-scorers and wicket-takers, it's a good start," wrote Lee in his column for the ICC on Thursday.

In a low-scoring match, Bangladesh, chasing 140, could manage only 134 giving the newcomers Scotland a surprise win. "Our batting is a concern. We have to bat better.
