Anil Kumble, a former captain and coach for India, is of the opinion that the best strategy for the country in international cricket is to use entirely distinct squads for the limited overs format and the test format.
The resounding triumphs of England in one-day internationals and twenty20 internationals have sparked a discussion among the various teams and coaches competing in white ball and red ball cricket. “You absolutely need to work in separate teams.
You unquestionably require T20 subject matter experts. I believe that what this English team and even the team that won the most recent (T20) World Cup in Australia have proved is that it is necessary to invest in a large number of players who are capable of playing multiple positions. Take a look at the order of the batters, “Anil Kumble stated these things to ESPNcricinfo.
“At the moment, Liam Livingstone is batting in the seventh spot. Livingstone is the only player on any other squad who can compete at the No. 7 position. (Marcus) Stoinis enters the game at position No. 6. (for Australia). You’re going to need to put together a team like that. Putting money into that is something that is really necessary.
“It’s hard for me to say whether you need a new captain or a new coach because you already have one. Everything hinges on the type of team you decide to go with, as well as the strategy you devise for garnering support and establishing authority inside that group.
“Former Australia all-rounder Tom Moody suggested that international teams should give serious consideration to sharing coaching responsibilities. Matthew Mott is in charge of England’s white-ball team, while Brendon McCullum is in charge of the team’s test matches.
“In the future, whether it be player management or support management, there definitely needs to be a serious look at that separation. I don’t think there is any question about it.
“It would appear that there is a significant gap in ability between England’s red-ball group and their white-ball squad. They have achieved a high level of consistency, “Moody stated this to the cricket website shortly after England had won their second Twenty20 World Cup.
“My opinion is that England is not yet at the point where they can be considered the best white-ball team in the history of the sport. You could have a case if they had triumphed at the most recent Twenty20 World Cup held in the United Arab Emirates, but they did not compete in that tournament.
Therefore, they did not participate in the World Cup. They have not been able to achieve that level of domination in a cycle.” According to Moody, the demands placed on the players and the management of the teams participating in any of the formats are quite high.
“The price of having success is that it takes an incredible amount of energy. If you want to be adequately prepared, it is going to be really difficult for you to manage it with three different forms, “explained Moody.
