5. Will India Play Three Spinners?
MS Dhoni has always been reluctant in using three spinners in the Indian line-up. Looking at the success of Indian spin troika in the recently-concluded Asia Cup the inclusion of Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Amit Mishra looks plausible.

With Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina in the line-up, Dhoni may go for them as the third spinning option and think of playing Stuart Binny as an all-rounder.

If that happens it will be interesting to see which of the two frontline spinners get the nod ahead.

4. Who Will Open The Innings - Rohit Sharma or Ajinkya Rahane?
Ajinkya Rahane as an opener for the Rajasthan Royals has been exceptional. But will he get to open the innings for India in the World T20? Rohit Sharma was tried as an opener in the 2009 World T20 under Dhoni but the Mumbai lad failed to get big scores.

Rohit, who now is a regular ODI opener, has played a lot of match winning knocks in the middle order for Mumbai Indians.

3. Where Will MS Dhoni Bat?
MS Dhoni is one of the dangerous batsmen in the T20 format. With the star-studded batting line-up one fears that Dhoni may bat too low.

Looking at his array of shots it won’t be a bad idea for the Indian skipper to bat in the top order when there are plenty of overs in hand.

2 Will India Prefer Chasing?
India have been comfortable in chasing targets in the ODI format. Will they continue doing that in the World T20? Or will India bank on the three spinners to defend the targets?

Dew could be one of the factors prominent during the second half of the innings.

1. Will India Make It To The Knockout Phase?
Since their title triumph at the inaugural World T20, India have been unable to make it to the knockout phases of the competition in the subsequent three editions. Will India be able to break that jinx in 2014?
