The Indian cricket team, led by Rohit Sharma, is taking part in the 2023 Asian Cup. Rahul Dravid is the head coach of Team India. India’s first game in the tournament was against Pakistan. But in that match, many of India’s experienced batsmen proved to be a flop. The calculation that Dravid and Rohit had made against Pakistan turned out to be completely wrong. The Indian team collapsed with a score of 266 runs. If Ishaan Kishan and Hardik Pandya hadn’t fought, the score would have been very low.
The failure of big hitters like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill in a crucial game just before the World Cup raises questions about Team India’s preparation. The Board of Control for Cricket in India has included Shreyas Iyer in the Asian Cup team. Iyer has made a comeback after recovering from injury. But Iyer also flopped. Team India tried many batsmen for number 4. Iyer competed against Pakistan with this number. He got out after scoring just 14 runs.
India’s start against Pakistan was very bad. Rohit folded after scoring 11 runs in 22 balls. He was fired by Shaheen Afridi. Virat folded after scoring 4 runs. Shaheen also showed him the way to the pavilion. Speaking of Shubman, he seemed uncomfortable early in the inning. Given the difficulties, he faced 32 balls and got out. Gill could barely get 10 runs.
Ishaan Kishan came to bat in the middle order. As number 5, he scored 82 runs in 81 balls. Hardik hit 87 runs while batting in 6th place. India had lost four wickets in 66 runs. But both have led the team out of the crisis by playing a partnership of the century. After these two were fired, Team India collapsed. Ravindra Jadeja folded after scoring 14 runs. Shardul Thakur scored three runs.
