That year, under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, the Indian team captured the Champions Trophy, but since then the Indian team has been yearning for a different ICC trophy. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli was the captain of Team India for a long time and a legend like Ravi Shastri was the coach, even after this, the Indian team has been missing out on big opportunities. Meanwhile, Ravi Shastri, who is now a commentator from the head coach, has made a big deal, he has revealed why the Indian team could not succeed in winning the World Cup. What was the reason for this?
Ravi Shastri made a big disclosure about the defeat
Ravi Shastri, who was the head coach during the ODI series being played between India and West Indies, while talking to Fancode has said that he has always wanted to have some players in the top 6 of the team, who can bowl when the opportunity arises. And also take out wickets. He told that Hardik Pandya was injured before the T20 World Cup 2021 and after that this problem got bigger. We had Hardik Pandya a better option, says Ravi Shastri, but he got injured and after that the trouble started increasing. We didn’t have any option to bowl in the top 6. To a large extent, the same reason remained in the One Day World Cup played in the year 2019. Ravi Shastri also said that he had told the selectors that Hardik Pandya’s replacement should be explored.
Hardik Pandya did not bowl in the World Cup
You must remember that Hardik Pandya was included in the T20 World Cup 2021 as an all-rounder, but he could not bowl in a single match. Not only this, he has not been able to make the kind of contribution with the bat for which he is known and recognized. After the T20 World Cup, he took rest, made his preparations and then went straight to the IPL. This time he was released by Mumbai Indians, so he joined Gujarat Titans and he led the team to the IPL title for the first time under his captaincy. After this he returned to Team India. He started bowling from IPL itself and is still doing it for the Indian team. Also taking wickets. Now this year the World Cup is to be held again, in which the Indian team is preparing to enter with new intentions.
