Indian Cricket Team had a disappointing end to the T20 World Cup 2022. The Men in Blue were convincingly beaten in all the 3 departments of the game due to which all of their hard work went into vain. Skipper Rohit Sharma would be utterly disappointed with his own performance as he hardly made any impact with the bat.
The billion people would be dejected as the team missed a golden chance to win the championship The wait for the second title continues as India hasn’t won the ICC T20 World Cup since the inception of IPL. There are chances that a lot of players may take retirement after this debacle.
Shoaib Malik on India
Shoaib Malik was having an interaction with A Sports and was asked about Indian Cricket Team.
“I will not take names. Each of India’s main bowlers had one over left. MS Dhoni asked everyone, but they refused to bowl the last over. They were afraid to bowl to Misbah-ul-Haq. He was hitting all over the ground.
“People always talk about that scoop shot by Misbah. I am telling you, If it was not the last wicket, he must have hit him down the ground. He had already hit Joginder for a big six in that over,” said Shoaib Malik.
Crucial Series for India
The Men in Blue are all set to take on New Zealand in a 3 T20I Match Series starting from 18th November (Friday). This series most likely embarks on the start of a new era as the selection panel has named a second-string team where they have named Hardik Pandya as the skipper. This series will give opportunities for youngsters to make a name for themselves.
Many experts have made it clear that they want Hardik Pandya as the next skipper for T20 WC 2024.
The dynamic all-rounder has got all the traits in him to be the next leader. It would be interesting to see if that happens as there is KL Rahul already present who is the vice-captain of team India.
