Tanvir Ahmed says “India under pressure, so they brought in MS Dhoni as a mentor” in T20 World Cup 2021. Ahmed said that going into the 2021 T20 World Cup. India is a team under pressure, which led to Virat Kohli resigning from the captaincy. Also, their bringing in MS Dhoni as a mentor. In some of the programs which also featured Kapil Dev and Virender Sehwag, Ahmed. They said that while India is a top side, there are various factors putting them under pressure.
“On paper, there is no doubt that India is a top team. The way they have played cricket around the world, but you have to look at recent performances. Firstly, I’d like to talk about Virat Kohli. He was under a lot of pressure and he quit T20 captaincy. He said I won’t captain in T20s as my performances have not been great,” Ahmed said.
Tanvir Ahmed spokes about Dhoni and the fact that the players in the Indian squad. They did not perform up to the mark in the Indian Premier League 2021 season.
“Then, maybe they were under pressure so they are taking MS Dhoni as a mentor. Even if you look at the IPL, the players in India’s squad were not among the top 10 performers. Their spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have not done very well, so of course, there will be pressure,” Ahmed said.
Lastly, Pakistan has never beaten India in a World Cup match. But Tanvir Ahmed said that Pakistan has the advantage this time around. They have more experience playing in the UAE. Where the competition is being held.
“If you look at Pakistan, they have been playing cricket in Dubai for a long time, they have a good idea of the conditions. On paper, fine, India has a good team, but in T20 cricket, you never know. One player can come and win you the match and go,” he said.
