Michael Vaughan -“Nobody wants to criticize them because you get hammered on social media and pundits worry about losing work in India”. Easily defeating India by 10 wickets, England advanced to the title game.
Rohit Sharma leads the team as captain A talented English squad humiliated India and went on to defeat them by 10 wickets in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 semifinal. At the legendary Melbourne Cricket Ground, England will play Pakistan in the final game on Sunday, November 13. (MCG).
The Men in Blue were expect to provide their usual strong performance, but they ended up losing terribly. Cricket players and fans have criticized India for their underwhelming semifinal performance. At the end of their powerplay, India only managed to score 38 runs while losing one wicket, and they never really seemed to pose a threat with the bat.
While the squad has promise, according to former England captain Michael Vaughan’s column for The Telegraph, the right processes are not in place to get the necessary outcomes.
“Every player in the world who goes to the Indian Premier League says how it improves their game but what have India ever delivered? I’m just staggered by how they play T20 cricket for the talent they have. They have the players, but just do not have the right process in place. They have to go for it. Why do they give the opposition bowlers the first five overs to bed in?”Vaughan said.
They have not maximized someone like Rishabh Pant is incredible – Vaughan
Aughan questioned the use of Rishabh Pant on the side and stated his concerns about his struggles to achieve large scores with the bat when he moved down the middle order.
“How they have not maximized someone like Rishabh Pant is incredible. In this era, put him up the top to launch it. India have to be honest now. Nobody wants to criticize them because you get hammered on social media and pundits worry about losing work in India one day. But it is time to tell it straight,”Vaughan conclude.
