Gautam Gambhir has urged supporters to consider their actions. Fans should not be too tough on Indian players, according to Gambhir. After they were eliminated from the competition, as well. India was unable to finish in the top two places in their group. For the first time in 9 years, he will not advance to the knockout round of an ICC tournament. The Men In Blue stumbled against heavyweight members. In their group and will now play a dead rubber competition. Against Namibia before departing from the UAE. Also, Gambhir brought the fact that the players were playing in strict bio-bubbles. And asked the Indian fans to think before acting in a rash manner.
“Before we take them to the cleaners, please pause and think that all these games were played in a bio-secure bubble. But players were training at home, taking flights, quarantining in a hotel room, living a bubbled life to play and entertain you and me. Yes, they are paid handsomely and it’s a professional world out there…blah…blah..blah… How about just saying, “well-tried, boys,” Gautam Gambhir said.
Bumrah had also mentioned mental exhaustion as a result of the frequent bio-bubbles. As a major role in India’s early-season losses in the competition. A little pause was also recommended by bowling coach B Arun. The players would have benefited when the IPL concluded. It would have helped him get in the correct frame of mind for the competition, he believes.
Furthermore, Gambhir was questioned the tournament’s format following claims of differences. Also, in quality between the two groups drawn in the Super 12s. He questioned whether the ICC should make the T20 World Cup a league format rather than a round-robin.
“Is there a lesson there for the organizers? Should the format be a round-robin, where every team plays each other, rather than have two groups?” Gambhir added.
