Rohit Sharma’s Mistakes: 5 big mistakes of Team India and Rohit Sharma, warning for ODI World Cup as well

New Delhi. Team India lost another final match. After this, questions are being raised on the performance of captain Rohit Sharma to the team. In the final of the World Test Championship, Australia defeated the Indian team by 209 runs. Chasing the target of 444 runs on Sunday, the Indian team was reduced to 234 runs on the last day of the match. Team India has lost 4 ICC finals since 2013 and is waiting for the trophy since 10 years. Australia scored 469 and 270 runs in the match. The Indian team could score only 296 runs in the first innings. This year the ODI World Cup is to be played at home in October-November. The defeat in the final is pointing towards 5 big mistakes of the team from Rohit. It has to be removed before the World Cup, otherwise it can be a burden on the team. Let us tell you about these shortcomings…

1. Players have to be freed before the big event
Most of the players of Team India landed in the final of the World Test Championship after playing IPL. The final of the IPL ended on 29 May while the finals started on 7 June. This not only showed fatigue on the players, but they also did not get a chance to prepare on the foreign ground. Former Indian bowler Irfan Pathan said that our bowlers were not fit to throw long spells. At the same time, former Indian coach Ravi Shastri said that players should be freed at least a month before a big event like the final. For this, if the schedule of T20 league has to be changed, then that too should be done.

2. Players have to be marked according to each format
Talking about teams like Australia and England, some players of their Test format are sure. Bowlers like James Anderson and Stuart Broad play only Tests. From Australia too, players like Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labushen give preference to Tests only. On the other hand, if we talk about Team India, except Cheteshwar Pujara, all the players enter in all the three formats.

3. Have to find a way to deal with the pressure
Talking about ICC events since 2013, the Indian team has lost 4 times in the final and 4 times in the semi-finals. That is, players are disintegrating under pressure in big matches. In the 4 innings of the final of both the seasons of the World Test Championship, the Indian team could not touch the figure of 300 runs in any of them. No Indian player could score a century.

4. Question on Indian coach too
Team India was successful in winning the ICC trophy for the last time in 2013. Then the coach was Duncan Fletcher of Zimbabwe. After this Ravi Shastri, Anil Kumble and now Rahul Dravid have the command of the team. All these three have been with Team India since 2015. In such a situation, it is bound to raise questions on these too. Gary Kirsten was the coach during the 2011 ODI World Cup. At the same time, the Indian team won the T20 World Cup title in 2007 under the coaching of Lalchand Rajput.

5. Pay attention to workload
BCCI and selectors will also have to pay attention to the workload of the players. Apart from continuous international matches, players also have to participate in domestic tournaments like IPL for 2 months. Because of this, players are constantly getting injured. During IPL 2023 itself, from Umesh Yadav to Jaydev Unadkat got injured. Shardul Thakur also had to sit out in many matches.
