The Indian team has been announced for the ‘Mahakumbh’ of cricket i.e. T20 World Cup. The T20 World Cup is starting from 16 October. This time the responsibility of hosting the T20 World Cup is in the hands of Australia.
A total of 16 teams are participating in this tournament. Meanwhile, the Cricket Board of India (BCCI) has announced the 15-member Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2022. Although, everyone is hopeful that India will win the T20 World Cup this time, but today we will tell you about the 3 reasons due to which Team India can lose the World Cup.
Famous batsmen flop against big teams
The first reason why Team India can lose the T20 World Cup title is the flop of the famous batsmen in big matches. The responsibility of getting India off to a good start rests on the shoulders of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma but both of them succumb against the big teams and this has happened many times, not the first time. The winning example of this is the Asia Cup 2022 where Rohit and Rahul’s bat flopped against teams like Pakistan, Sri Lanka but spoke fiercely against weak teams like Hong Kong and Afghanistan.
At the same time, Virat Kohli definitely scored runs but he too was seen struggling a little. Along with this, batsmen like Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya have failed to score runs in crucial matches in the Asia Cup Super 4. If this situation continues, then this time also Team India can lose the World Cup.
Frequent changes in batting order
Another reason why Team India can lose the T20 World Cup title is that no batsman in the Indian team has a fixed batting order. Captain Rohit Sharma is experimenting on experiments regarding the batting order in the team. The result of this is also looking good. Like getting it opened by Suryakumar Yadav. Virat Kohli opening with KL Rahul in Asia Cup 2022. Sending Ravindra Jadeja, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya and ever Deepak Hooda to bat at No. Getting Rishabh Pant to open. The result of such an experiment has been positive so far, but what is the use of this experiment when you cannot use it at all.
At the same time, sometimes the effect of changing the batting order has also been seen on the performance of the players. In the Asia Cup, Hooda batted at number 7. During this he failed to perform well while playing at No 3 against Ireland, he scored a century but as he slipped down, Hooda’s performance saw a decline. If this continues, then Team India will lose this World Cup and a direct and accurate example of this is the 2007 ODI World Cup where coach Greg changed the batting order of all the players. The result was that India was knocked out of the World Cup.
Failure of bowlers to take wickets in the death overs
The third reason in which Team India can lose the T20 World Cup (T20 World Cup 2022) title is the inability of bowlers to take wickets in the death overs. During the Asia Cup 2022, the Indian fast bowlers did not look very good. Bhuvneshwar Kumar took 5 wickets for 4 runs in the last match against Afghanistan. It was all in the power play.
