Team India: After India’s defeat in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup and becoming the champion of England, there is a lot of discussion about Team India. The World Cup is over, but now many cricket giants are also giving many types of advice to the Indian team for the future. In this episode, a former head coach of Team India has advised to form separate teams for Test ie Red Ball Cricket and T20 and ODI (White Ball Cricket). Actually, there is nothing new in this, teams like England and Australia are also following this practice.
In fact, Anil Kumble, who was the former captain and head coach of India’s Test team, believes that to move forward in international cricket, there should be a completely separate team of limited overs and test format. The England team is currently the champion in both ODI and T20 formats. In such a situation, after the success of this team, the discussion of having separate teams for white ball and red ball cricket has started. Regarding Team India, Kumble said, “Definitely you will need different teams. You need specialist players of T20.”
England has proved
Anil Kumble further said, “I think this England team has shown and even last time T20 World Cup champions Australia has proved that you should have more and more all-rounders. You can look at their batting order. Consider. Today Liam Livingstone comes to bat at No.7. No other team has a batsman like Livingstone at No.7. Marcus Stoinis bats at No.6 for Australia. You have to build a team like this “
Kumble also said, “I can’t really say clearly about this whether you need a different captain or a different coach. It all depends on what kind of team you are going to choose. After that decide what kind of support staff and captain you want. In England, Brendon McCullum is his Test coach while Matthew Mott is the coach of the limited overs team.
Tom Moody’s blunt statement too
Moody said after England’s T20 World Cup title victory in 2022, “I believe there is no doubt that this is the way forward, whether it is players or support staff, seriously keeping them apart.” needs to be considered. Today it seems there is a big difference between England’s Test and Limited Overs teams. He has produced good players.
