Review on India’s T20 World Cup Performance: The BCCI brass will discuss India’s disappointing showing in the T20 World Cup on January 1 with Captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid, according to various media reports.
The meeting will be in Mumbai, before the limited-overs match against Sri Lanka, which will start on January 3. The meeting will also include NCA director VVS Laxman, who has been travelling with the Indian team in Dravid’s absence.
England had pounded India by 10 wickets in the World Cup semifinals. The last time India won any ICC tournament was back in 2013 under MS Dhoni. The most recent ICC World Cup victory occurred in 2011.
“Head coach Rahul Dravid and NCA head VVS Laxman are expected to analyse India’s performance with BCCI bosses. The roadmap going into 2023 World Cup is also expected to be discussed,” said the source.
BCCI fired the selection committee after the World Cup debacle
After the World Cup, the selection committee headed by Chetan Sharma saw the exit door, but they are still to establish a new panel.
The committee forced to left in November, but it is still monitoring the Ranji Trophy and selecting the team for three T20 matches and one-day internationals against Sri Lanka.
The Cricket Advisory Committee, which established earlier this month, met on Friday in Mumbai to narrow down the list of potential selector candidates.
Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjpe, and Sulakshana Naik make up the panel.
Chetan Sharma and Harvinder Singh have reapplied for the position, while former Indian pacer Venkatesh Prasad and wicketkeeper Nayan Mongia have also applied.
Review on India’s T20 World Cup Performance: Rohit Sharma’s future as captain is in danger
India’s loss to England in Adelaide has once again prompted questions about the nation’s cautious batting strategy by the top three batsmen as well as the efficacy of their bowling attack on favourable batting pitches, despite the fact that reaching the T20 World Cup 2022 semifinals is an improvement over their group-stage exit last time.
The future of Captain Rohit Sharma is also up for debate. Sharma performed poorly defensively throughout the competition as well as offensively (with an average of 19 and a strike rate of 106) and several of his decisions regarding bowling changes drew criticism.
Sharma will be 37 years old when the subsequent T20 World Cup will take place in 2024. The selectors must quickly name a new T20I captain and give him two years to assemble a team that reflects their preferences and playing style due to Rohit’s fitness and injury issues as well as the fact that he is a more crucial player in the other two formats.
Some talks regarding captaincy catched the fire after the World Cup debacle, especially in the T20I format, with a recent change we saw that Hardik Pandya as expected named as the skipper of India’s first T20 series in new year.
As a result of his success as the captain of the Gujarat Titans, Hardik Pandya joined the leadership group and led the team on the Ireland tour. Rishabh Pant has fallen behind Pandya in the pecking order as a result of Pandya’s leadership skills and all-around excellence.
He led India in T20 series against a full strength New Zealand side in New Zealand right after the World Cup, which India won by 1-0.
