The Indian cricket team entered each ICC competition in the previous ten years as one of the top favourites to win the championship. However, after their successful campaign in the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013, they failed to get the rub of the green at vital moments. Next month marks the start of the 2023 ODI World Cup, another ICC tournament, and specialists are working to understand why India hasn’t performed well on the international arena. Simon Doull recently offered his opinion on the subject in a similar manner.
According to the former New Zealand fast bowler, Indian cricketers don’t often play courageous cricket. According to Simon Doull, the Indian players are overly focused on their stats and what might happen if they don’t perform. He did admit, though, that the nation is not short in talent.
“Their problem is fearless cricket. They don’t play enough courageous cricket. They engage in statistics-driven cricket and frequently worry too much about their numbers. And that is the one aspect of their batting side about which I am worried, according to me,” Doull remarked on Sky Sports.
They are extremely talented and boast some of the greatest players in the world, if not the best. But playing brave cricket at the correct moment in the competition is what truly let them down in the previous World Cups, in my opinion. Because they are so concerned about what might be said, what might be printed, or what someone might question them about their position on the team, they don’t venture out and take risks. That’s the one thing about which I’m worried, he continued.
On Sunday, India and Sri Lanka square off in a struggle for supremacy in Asia.
