India vs New Zealand: Team India needs more fast-ball all-rounders. Why did we win 1983 World Cup, 2011 World Cup, 2007 T20 World Cup? There is so much to think about.
Krishnamachari Srikanth, the former chairman of the selection committee, said that Hardik Pandya should be appointed as a full-fledged captain in the short format before the T20 World Cup 2024 and the reconstruction of the team should start from the limited overs series in New Zealand. India lost the T20 World Cup by 10 wickets against the champions, England, from the semi-finals. With this terrible defeat, India recorded their fifth knockout defeat in the last six World Cups. “If I am the chairman of the selection committee, I believe that Hardik Pandya should be the captain for the 2024 World Cup. I will do the same,” said Srikanth on Star Sports Show. “Start rebuilding a team today. He suggested that it should start from the New Zealand series to be held next week.”
“Preparation for the World Cup should be understood. Starts 2 years earlier. So try whatever you want to do. Try for one year. Then you can form a team. By 2023, make sure it is at the level where it will play the World Cup,” Srikanth said. Team India is all set to play 3 T20Is and several ODIs in New Zealand from Friday. Hardik will lead the team.
Need fast ball all rounders..
The former opener said that India need to identify more fast bowling all-rounders ahead of the 2024 edition. “Team India needs more fast-ball all-rounders. Why did we win 1983 World Cup, 2011 World Cup, 2007 T20 World Cup? The team has fast-ball all-rounders and semi-all-rounders,” he said.
We need people like Huda..
“So, guys like Hooda should be identified. It should be recognized that the team needs more people like Hooda,” said Aakshna. Former Indian pacer Irfan Pathan, who was part of India’s 2007 T20 World Cup-winning team, suggested that India should not rely on just one captain but develop a group of leaders in the team. “I am not saying that changing the captain will change the result, if it goes that way the result will not change. A few things to note from Hardik Pandya. He is a fast bowling all rounder. He also has injury problems,” said Pathan.
