I tried 30 players, changed the style of play, but still the Rohit-Rahul pairing failed miserably.

When the Indian team was knocked out of the Super-12 in the T20 World Cup 2021, after that it saw a lot of big changes in the team. Instead of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma was given the team captaincy and Rohit was expected to change both the status and direction of the Indian team. Apart from this, Rahul Dravid was also appointed as the new head coach of the team in place of Ravi Shastri. It was believed that the pairing of Rohit and Rahul would be a great success for India, but this pairing turned out to be a failure.

The biggest change seen in T20 Internationals after Rohit became captain and Dravid became manager was the aggressive stance of Indian batsmen on power plays. Before the T20 World Cup, the Indian team had scored 8.6 runs for more on the power play, but in the World Cup, the Indian team could not do it at all. In the World Cup, the Indian team was able to score only 6 runs for more on the power play and it caused them a lot of damage.

Following the arrival of Dravid, many experiments were seen in the Indian team. If we talk about T20 International, in the last year about 30 players have been tested. Players like Umran Malik and Rituraj Gaikwad have worn Indian jerseys. However, despite making so many changes, the squad selected for the T20 World Cup was very similar to last year’s squad. In such a situation, it is not understood why so many experiments were carried out throughout the year.

Yuzvendra Chahal, who missed out on the World Cup last year, was selected in the squad this time but did not get a chance to play in the XI. Even though Ravichandran Ashwin proved mediocre, the team management saw fit to ignore Chahal. Mohammed Shami did not play any T20 Internationals after last year’s T20 World Cup, but despite this he was included in the squad for this year’s World Cup in place of the injured Jasprit Bumrah. Harshal Patel was considered the X factor of the team, but he was forced to sit on the bench at the World Cup.
