India v South Africa: The second T20 match was played between India and South Africa at the Barabati Stadium on Sunday. Indian team had to face defeat in this match. The Indian team has also lost the first match to South Africa. On this, former fast bowler Zaheer Khan has said that coach Rahul Dravid needs to talk in strong words with the team. He said that the Indian team lacks trademark fighting spirit.
This veteran raised questions on Team India
India got off to a good start as bowling by taking three wickets in the powerplay, but that pace slowed down when South African player Klaasen and captain Temba Bavuma put together 64 runs in 41 balls. In the 13th over, Klaasen took charge and gave South Africa a comprehensive victory and took a 2-0 lead in the series.
Gave this advice to coach Dravid too
Zareen Khan said, ‘Seeing the Klaasen-Bavuma partnership getting stronger, you must be feeling that the spirits of the Indian team are getting crushed. It was clearly visible on the field as well. These are the things that Rahul Dravid and company should focus on and fix before the third T20 match. They need to unite again. Should have a tough talk with the team and tell them what they will have to do to fight for 40 overs.
India had a good start with the ball
The former bowler says that even in the first match, it seemed that the Indian team would win. In the second match too, India started well with the ball. Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled brilliantly, but he could not finish the match. Moving forward in the series, India will face concerns and a lot of pressure.
