Former Australia pacer Brett Lee backed Australia’s chances of lifting their maiden T20 World Cup title after their comprehensive performance in the group stage.

Veteran speedster believes that the current ‘underdog’ side could lift their maiden T20 World Cup title by maintaining their momentum.

“After almost a month of action, it all comes down to five days, four teams, and three matches at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. And I reckon this could be Australia’s year”, he wrote in a coloumn for the ICC.

“I think there is some real momentum there. Everything is clicking nicely ahead of Thursday’s semi-final against Pakistan”, Lee further added.

Lee also said he had faith in Warner's ability to regain his form and had a chat with him ahead of the tournament.

"I was speaking to David Warner before it started and told him 'I have you down to be Australia's leading run-scorer, so don't let me down!' I did that on the belief that he is a big-match player, a big tournament player and that has not changed.

In the second semi-final, Australia will take on the undefeated team of the tournament Pakistan at the Dubai International Stadium on Thursday.
