Former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has said that the Virat Kohli-led Indian team could not make it to the T20 World Cup 2021 due to bio-bubble and bubble fatigue. There is no denying the fact that Team India is the favorite in this mega tournament. But Kohli and Co now say they have failed to reach the knockout stage. Can some Indian players miss the last few matches of the IPL? Can they keep themselves fresh for India? Well, that’s something they can answer. Should some players take a break and take a week or 10 days off to freshen up their batteries, especially when you know you can’t qualify? ” Gavaskar said.
Losing the toss did not help India, he said. “Pakistan and Kiwis bowlers bowled very smartly in the matches against Team India in the T20 World Cup,” he said. Hence, the Indian batsmen are struggling to make runs. However, he said that the Team India batsmen had bounced back well in the matches against Afghanistan. TeamIndia, the title favorites in the T20 World Cup, did not live up to expectations. Ranked third in Group-2.
Team India lost to Pakistan by 10 wickets. Kiwis lost by 8 wickets. After announcing that he will step down from the T20 captaincy after the World Cup, this will be the last match as captain in short cricket and the last match for Ravi Shastri as coach. The frustrated Indian team canceled the practice session on Sunday. This is the first time that India has not reached the knockout stage of the ICC tournament since the 2012 T20 World Cup.
