The Indian cricket team had reached Australia much earlier to adjust to the weather and conditions. The team management is happy with the way the players have adapted to the fast and bouncy pitches ahead of the T20 World Cup. The Indian players are going through rigorous training sessions, which include training on fitness, batting and bowling and fielding. But even before that, former English player Nasir Hussain has created a sensation by making a big claim.
Team India plays like a timid says Naseer Hussain
Former England captain Nasser Hussain believes that India has good players. The team has also won almost every bilateral series. But in all ICC tournaments like the World Cup, the Indian team plays like a coward and this is what causes it the most damage. Nasser Hussain told Sky Sports, ‘India has been playing badly in ICC events, they have good players. It is also a fact that in big tournaments he plays a game like a coward, it seems like he goes into his shell.
Nasir Hussain further adds, ‘Team India has the ability to play aggressive innings. Suryakumar Yadav is in excellent form. Rohit Sharma can turn the match on his own on that day alone. Everyone also knows about Virat Kohli. Two star players Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah are out of the team. In such a situation, India will have to keep the same mentality with which the team has been playing and winning bilateral series.
Remember that India won the first World Cup in 1983. It took 28 years for the team to win the next World Cup. In 2011, under Dhoni’s leadership, India won the 50-overs World Cup for the second time. However, the first T20 World Cup held in 2007 was also won by the under-appreciated Blue Brigade under Dhoni’s captaincy. Now it is the turn of Rohit Sharma & Co. to end the drought of 15 years
