IND vs ENG Semifinals: India suffered an embarrassing 10-wicket defeat against England in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup. After this, Team India’s head coach Rahul Dravid appeared in front of the journalists in Adelaide. He was told that Alex Hales, who scored an unbeaten 86, attributed his innings to Big Bash League experience. He said that playing in the BBL made it easier for him to play fireworks against India. But Indian cricketers are not allowed this. The journalist asked Dravid the question whether Indian cricketers should also play in foreign T20 leagues?

Dravid conceded that Indian players could benefit from this but it would make a difference in their Test cricket setup. He said, “There is no doubt that England players play in the Big Bash League. It is difficult for Indian cricket as many such tournaments are played in the peak season. This is a big challenge for us. Not many of our players will be able to play in a league like this. It is for the BCCI to take a decision on this as it is played in the middle of our season.

Wasim Akram took a jibe at Rahul Dravid’s statement

Shortly after Dravid’s statement, Pakistan’s legend cricketer and former captain Wasim Akram gave his reaction. He told that IPL has failed to win a single T20 World Cup to Indian players. He said that since the IPL started in 2008, India has not won a single T20 World Cup.

Wasim Akram said, “Everyone felt that India will make a big difference with the IPL starting in 2008. Earlier India won the T20 World Cup in 2007. Ever since the IPL started, unfortunately India has not won any T20 World Cup. I was just listening to an interview that their players don’t play in foreign leagues. What difference will it make even if you get permission to play in another league? Will this change the approach of these people?”

Akram has given a stinging response to Dravid’s statement but it cannot be cut off completely. History tells that after the start of IPL in 2008, a total of 7 T20 World Cups were played in which the Indian team could never become the winner. In 2009, 2010 and 2012, India’s journey ended in Super 8. Team India reached the final in 2014, could not progress beyond the semi-finals in 2016. In 2020, India had to be eliminated from the league stage itself and in 2022, they faced an embarrassing defeat in the semi-finals.
