The Indian cricket team has adopted a fearless approach since the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 debacle. So far the team has been unable to play aggressive cricket. But they have lagged somewhat at the back end of the innings. India needs to work on this because it is hurting them.
India are all set to play in Australia’s conditions where hitting sixes will not be an easy task. Batsmen will have to be careful and selective in their approach and aim for smaller boundaries. India will be without Ravindra Jadeja who is injured during Asia Cup 2022. Like a person who is not afraid of anyone.
Shardul Thakur on deep batting
Shardul Thakur Looked at the second ODI media interaction and made a point on the batting line-up. “If you look at the teams that have done very well on the international platform, their batting line-up has been quite deep.” Shardul said.
,In this case Australia, if you look at Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, they bat at number eight and number nine. Even England for that matter. Even their batting line-up is deep. Why not the Indian team? We can even deepen our batting line-up and make that difference in the game. A margin of 15-20 runs that can be crucial in winning a match, especially in the white ball format. he added.
Important tournament for India
The Indian cricket team will know the defeat of 2021 where billions of people criticized the team. This T20 World Cup is an opportunity to make a statement that they are not a finished product. India have all the players who can succeed in Australia, the only thing Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma will worry about is that the team does not take any pressure.
India have done all the hard work by beating England, West Indies, Australia and South Africa and now the unit looks like a formidable one. The team has got match winners on given days which means that the team is no longer dependent on Virat and Rohit which is a big sign.
