Former Pakistan skipper Rashid Latif has questioned the Indian selectors and the team management's experiments as they have not yielded any fruitful results in major tournaments. At the same time, he also made a huge claim that when it comes to planning, Australia, England and Pakistan are way better than India.
In the last year, India have been a force to reckon with in the bilateral T20Is ever since making a Super 12 exit in the T20 World Cup in the UAE. However, they failed to defend their Asia Cup last month bowing out in the Super 4s with close defeats against arch-rivals Pakistan and the eventual champions Sri Lanka respectively.
India keep changing their players frequently: Rashid Latif
“They keep their main players everywhere and they keep changing their players frequently. 56-57 players khila diye unhone poore saal me, event koi bhi nahi bada jeeta. Ye ek issue hai”, said Latif while speaking on a TV show.
“Australia and England plan a lot better. Then comes Pakistan,” the ex-stumper added.
It is to be noted that India would be looking to end their nine-year ICC title drought when they compete in the upcoming edition of the T20 World Cup in Australia. The Men in Blue last won major silverware in the 2013 Champions Trophy which was held in England & Wales under the legendary skipper MS Dhoni.
Since then the Indian team have failed to go all the way as they ended up as the semifinalists in the 2015 and 2019 World Cups as well as the T20 World Cup at home in 2016. They also finished as the finalists in the 2014 T20 World Cup, the 2017 Champions Trophy, and the inaugural World Test Championship final in 2021.
Coming back to this year's T20 World Cup, the Indian team departed for Australia on the early morning of Thursday, October 6. The main concern of the Indian think tank as of now will be to find a suitable replacement for pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah who has been ruled out due to a back injury.
