Team India to end its disappointing world cup campaign tonight

Published

on

Team India had a horrific journey in the T20 World Cup 2021. It entered the tournament as one of the favorites and is now exiting in the league stage itself. This is probably the worst performance by the team in an ICC tournament after the 2007 ODI World Cup. India will play its last match against Namibia tonight.

When the Indian squad was announced, everyone was ecstatic by seeing big names in it. But none of them, barring KL Rahul, was in the form during the IPL. Instead of selecting the players who showed good skills on UAE surfaces during the IPL, the selectors went ahead with the big names having statistical power behind them. That strategy proved costly for Team India. None of the Indian players has put up an impressive show in the T20 World Cup. By losing its first two games against Pakistan and New Zealand respectively, Indian was virtually knocked out of the tournament. Then, it had to depend on the other results to keep semifinal hopes alive. However, the Kiwis spoiled all Indian fans’ hopes and entered the semifinals the other day.

It is the last assignment for head coach Ravi Shastri and the other coaching staff. They will be giving up their jobs after tonight’s game. Tonight’s match is also the last T20I game for Virat Kohli as a captain. It is rather disappointing to see these guys ending their tenures on such a sad note. Hopefully, India comes back stronger in T20 World Cup 2022.

Ind v NZ series review: Team India turns invincible at home

Published

Ind v NZ series review: Team India is continuing its dominance at home in Test Cricket. Just the other day, India won its 14th Test series on a trot on home soil. That record itself proves what a powerhouse the team has become over the last few years at home grounds.

India’s last Test series defeat at home came way back in the 2012-13 season where England had defeated the host country to win a four-match series by 2-1. Since February 2013, India didn’t lose a single Test series at home. Also, India has only lost two Test matches since 2013 at home. All these records prove India is almost invincible in home conditions.

The major reason for this transformation is the talent pool that India has right now. There are many skilled cricketers who can be filled in the squad right away whenever there is a need. Axar Patel, who made his debut earlier this year, has already become a regular part of the Team Indian squad for the home Tests. In the recently held Test series, Shreyas Iyer made his debut and impressed everyone by scoring a century as well as a half-century right in his debut Test. There are at least two to three players available for every slot in the Test squad.

This gives India a chance of shuffling Test squads at home and on overseas tours. Soon, Team India will be touring South Africa for a three-match Test series and three-match ODI series. The Test squad will be picked in a few days. We can see the likes of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Jaspirt Bumrah and Rishab Pant making a comeback into the squad. Even if they are unavailable, there are many others, like Hanuma Vihari, Shreyas Iyer, Surya Kumar Yadav and Jayant Yadav, who are waiting for another chance of representing their country. With such a huge talent pool, India will definitely be the favourite of the upcoming World Test Championship.
