New Delhi: Former Australian skipper Ian Chappell has tagged India has slight favorites to win the ICC World Twenty20 on home soil.

Chappell believes India, Australia, New Zealand and England will be the four semi-finalists.

However, India has the edge their allround ability and knowledge of playing at home, feels Chappell.

"Of the top four candidates, India are slight favourites because of their allround ability and knowledge of playing at home. Their one weakness is the lack of late-order big-hitting but they usually render this irrelevant via big scores from their top-order batsmen and the finishing capabilities of skipper MS Dhoni," he writes in his Hindustan Times column.
