BCCI president Sourav Ganguly acknowledged that not being able to do well in big tournaments is a matter of concern for Team India
The Indian cricket team began its T20I series against Australia with a four-wicket loss after a disappointing Asia Cup campaign in which it failed to qualify for the final. Despite scoring 208 runs, the Indian bowling attack was unable to defend the high target. The worst part about the team is that, with five official T20Is remaining before the first T20 World Cup match against Pakistan on October 23, the Indian team appears highly unsettled.
The BCCI’s president, Sourav Ganguly, acknowledged that the inability to perform well in major tournaments is a source of concern.
“Rohit Sharma has a nearly 80% winning percentage. India has lost three or four games in a row, but they have led in 35-40 games and lost only five or six.I am confident that Rohit and Rahul Dravid will be concerned about the team and their performance, and that they will improve. ” According to the news agency PTI, Ganguly said.
“I’m not concerned about one or two losses, but we’ve struggled in big tournaments. We’ll talk about it. The team will leave in two to three weeks for the T20 World Cup in Australia, giving them time to acclimate and play practise matches. ”
“It’s very good news that Virat has done well in the Asia Cup, and hopefully he will continue in that vein,” he said of Virat Kohli’s recent century.
