Deep Dasgupta says “No changes needed in the playing XI” in T20 World Cup 2021. Former cricketers Dasgupta and Jayawardene feel there is no reason for India. It is to tweak the playing XI that racked up a convincing win against Afghanistan. The Men In Blue return to Dubai to face Scotland. Dasgupta mentioned that the biggest change required was in mentality rather than personnel. India showcased that through a belligerent batting display in their first win of the competition. While previewing the contest between India and Scotland.
“Only thing that needed change was temperament and mentality and I think they did that in the last game. As far as the playing XI is concerned, I don’t think so they need to change,” Deep Dasgupta said.
Moreover, India recorded their biggest opening stand in T20 World Cups. Also, through the fifties from KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma. And both Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant took things over at the death. In playing impactful cameos to steer India to a commanding total. There were positives to take from the bowling. With powerplay wickets making a return after a long absence.
Furthermore, team India has brought back Suryakumar Yadav. Also, to reset their top order back to its original state. The site received criticism for their ploy to shun Rohit Sharma down the order. During their match against New Zealand. Jayawardene feels that with the initially-slated top four in charge now. Then India looks like a much more balanced and settled unit.
“I think India should play the same team, It is a settled XI now, I think the batting lineup looks very good now. For India, it’s now, about maintaining that high tempo,” Dasgupta said.
Lastly, India will play their fourth series on the group stage. When they face Scotland later tonight in Dubai. This will mark the first instance where the teams will compete in a T20 international series. The nations were drawn against each other in the first season of the competition. But the fixture was abandoned due to rain.
