Ravi Shastri, the former head coach of the Indian cricket team, has made a big disclosure about the reason behind Team India’s poor performance in the 20 World Cup concluded last year. Almost 9 months have passed since this tournament and now the coach has looked at certain aspects.
The team, which was eliminated from the first round, had to face a special problem in the World Cup last year. In this regard, Shastri says that the selectors were already informed. Let us know what else he has disclosed.
Team India had to bear the brunt because of Hardik Pandya- Ravi Shastri
Actually, the former coach of Team India believes that the poor performance of the team was due to only one reason which no one could correct. Regarding this, Shastri said while talking on FanCode in the second match of the ongoing series between India and West Indies,
“I always wanted a player who could bowl in the first six overs and Hardik Pandya got injured. His getting injured had become the biggest problem for our team. Team India had to bear the brunt of this one thing. In the first two matches of the World Cup, Team India had to suffer a huge loss due to this one thing.
Talking further in this regard, Ravi Shastri said, “The Indian team got a bad defeat in a couple of matches in the World Cup because we did not have anyone who could bowl in the first six overs. So this one thing had become a burden on us. We told the selectors to look into it and look at such a player, bring him. But who did you have then?
