Ahead of T20 World Cup Ganguly and Jay Shah are not happy with the ‘Passerby’ approach of the Indian team
India, the T20I world number one, suffered another embarrassing exit from the multi-nation competition last week as the men in blue forgot to make it to the final edition of the Asia Cup in 2022 after losing to Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
After last year’s T20 World Cup, the Indian cricket crew recognized the flaws in their batting and decided to play real cricket without fearing the result. The players engaged in a hard raid on the bowlers from ball one and everyone assumed that the group would continue with a similar methodology on the onshore occasion.
But the problem was that the players were coming back to the saddle after a long break and watching it from a long distance. India had a great run in the overs, but the innings came back into focus between overs 7 to 15 and came back to cause them serious problems.
On the occasion that the reports are to be received, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah during the Asia Cup audit meeting conveyed their concerns about Team India’s “man-on-legs” approach in the central overs heading into the T20 World Cup. and a group that was introduced to their views.
“Indeed, the implementation of the Asia Cup has been scrutinized. However, it is clear that more than the problems, the focus is on measures and what should be improved during the T20 World Cup,” PTI news agency quoted an anonymous senior BCCI official as saying. as they say, aware of progress.
Asia Cup 2022 was the main major global competition as Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid took charge of the group and it ended in colossal disappointment.
“There is a glaring problem with batting during the center overs, especially between the seventh and 15th, where we did not do well in the Asia Cup. Obviously, the research organization of the group knows and we have some elite players who can clearly change their game according to the needs of the group, ” said the officer.
As of now, for an indefinite period, the players have been keeping pace with the fact that they want to win the upcoming T20 World Cup in 2022, but looking at the way they played on the last occasion, it seems like a distant dream.
Recognizing a problem was never a problem for Team India, but finding an arrangement was. It’s time for each of the players to stop thinking exclusively and start having a similar view as a unit. Indeed, at that time we can dispose of this matter ourselves.
