T20 World Cup 2021: Former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin has said that head coach Ravi Shastri should attend a post-match press conference after India’s defeat to New Zealand in the Group 2 match on Sunday as part of the T20 World Cup. Indian pacer Jaspreet Bumra attended a press conference after the match. This former Indian cricketer said it was not acceptable. “In my view the coach should come to the press conference. It would not be fair if Virat Kohli did not want to attend the press conference. But, Ravi (Shastri) Bhai should attend the press conference, ”Azharuddin said.

“Attending press conferences is not just about winning. Defeats must also be explained. Sending Bumra to a press conference is inappropriate. The captain or coach should come for the press. Someone in the coaching staff should come. ” After such a poor performance, Kohli and Shastri seem to like to face questions. He said there was no need to be ashamed of the defeat, but there was a need to take responsibility.

“There is nothing to be ashamed of if you lose two games. But the captain or coach must come and explain why the country lost. Bumra can be expected to answer these questions. But, this is not going to be right. After the team wins as well as when the team is in a bad phase, the media needs to come forward and give reasons, ‘he said. Azharuddin played 99 Tests and 334 ODIs for India.

India top-order with a score of 110/7 in 20 overs .. failed to deliver valuable partnerships once again on Sunday. Among the New Zealand bowlers, Trent Boult took three wickets while Ish Sodhi also took two wickets. Ravindra Jadeja scored 26 off 19 balls for India. Daryl Mitchell scored 49 off just 35 balls as the Blackcaps chased down the target in just 14.3 overs.

Team India now has a chance to qualify for the semis. They must win the rest of their games. The Indian team semis paths depend on the results of other teams. India will take on Afghanistan in their next match on Wednesday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
