New Delhi: In the first two matches of the T20 World Cup, Team India had to face defeat against Pakistan and New Zealand. This was the reason that India could not even reach the semi-finals of this tournament. Many things can be responsible for this poor performance. But in the meantime, a big reason behind Team India’s poor game has come to the fore.
Team India was out because of this
Ahead of his last few matches as India’s bowling coach, Bharat Arun admitted that the team’s performance in the ICC T20 World Cup was disappointing due to fatigue from the toss and bio-bubble, where it faced Pakistan and New Zealand. Had to face a severe defeat. When Arun was asked whether the short time between IPL and T20 World Cup affected the performance of the team, he said yes it is.
Couldn’t find rest time
Arun said, ‘It is a big deal to be away from home for 6 months. I think they got a short break after the last IPL was suspended, after that the players haven’t gone home. They are in bubbles and this has a great effect on the body. A short break (time) between IPL and World Cup could have been beneficial for the players.
Toss also became a villain
However, he was very disappointed that the toss played an important role in a tournament of this stature. There was a big difference in batting in the first and second innings of the Indian team. It was difficult to bowl in the second innings because of the dew.’ He said, ‘The toss played a very important role and I believe that in a tournament like this, the toss should not have any effect on the result. Here the toss has got an unfair advantage and there is a huge difference between batting in the first innings and batting in the second innings. This should not happen in such a short format.
India lost in the first two matches
The Indian cricket team had to face defeat by 10 wickets in the very first match of the T20 World Cup. Not only this, in the next match, Team India was defeated by New Zealand by 8 wickets.
