New Delhi. Due to poor performance in the T20 World Cup, questions are being raised on the captaincy and team selection of Virat Kohli. Former Indian captain Kapil Dev also believes that the BCCI should now think of giving more opportunities to the youth instead of relying on the big names of the Indian cricket team. This statement of Kapil has come after India’s defeat to New Zealand (IND VS NZ T20 World Cup). Earlier, Pakistan had also defeated India by 10 wickets. After losing these two matches, India’s hopes of reaching the semi-finals have weakened.
Kapil Dev said on ABP News that if we are successful on the basis of some other teams, then it is not a thing worth praising. If you want to win the World Cup or reach the semi-finals, you have to do that on your own. It is better not to depend on other teams. I think the selectors have to decide the future of big names and big players.
Those who play well in IPL should get a chance: Kapil
There can be many reasons behind India’s poor performance in the current T20 World Cup. Bio-bubbles, fatigue due to constant cricket and team selection can be three major reasons for this. If so, then Kapil believes that there are many young players who have done well in the IPL and are fit. They can be sculpted as the future of Indian cricket.
‘Big players will be criticized for poor performance’
The former Indian captain further said that they (BCCI) need to think whether the time has come to give opportunities to the youngsters who are doing well in the IPL. How can we make the next generation better? If they lose, there’s nothing wrong with it. Because they will get experience. If the big players don’t perform now and play such bad cricket, then it is going to be criticized a lot. I think BCCI needs to intervene and think of getting more youngsters into the team.
India have a chance to reach the semi-finals
The Indian team has lost two matches in the T20 World Cup. This has weakened their hopes of the semi-finals. Now if India has to play the semi-finals, then it will not only have to win against Afghanistan, but will also have to win the next two matches. With this, he will have to hope that the Scotland team beats New Zealand. If this happens, like India, New Zealand will also lose two matches. If this happens, both India and New Zealand can have equal points and then on the basis of net run rate it will be decided which team is better on the points table. Here India will have a chance.
