India’s exclusion from the 2022 T20 World Cup has seen a number of players drop out for their poor performance in the tournament. After winning 4/5 matches in Super 12s, the Indian team suffered a defeat of 10 empty hands at the hands of England in the semi-finals. Be it batting, bowling, or even team boxing, there are flaws in all departments. Former Pakistani player Denmark’s Kaneria, in a video shared on YouTube, launched a furious attack on the Indian team and their players. He chose that too Ravichandran Ashwin should only play Test for Team India.
Ashwin did not participate in the Indian scheme as a regular member of the T20 faction. But twice before the T20 World Cups (in 2021 and 2022), he found himself breaking into the squad. Ashwin played all 6 games for India in Australia this time, scoring 6 goals in 6 games.
Kaneria, criticizing Ashwin for being too defensive in bowling, suggests that Virat kohli only have the right to play him in the Cricket Trials when he is captain in all three modes.
“India’s archers were up against England. Bhuvneshwar Kumar looks ordinary, and perhaps his time has come. R Ashwin was supposed to be playing in Australia. He should just play Test cricket. Virat Kohli used to do the right thing by just playing him in Test. He was right. You are playing an out-of-spin game that doesn’t spin outside the reels. He also performs defensive missions. How can you play him? “ Kaneria said in a video on his YouTube channel.
Even Axar has had a pretty normal start to the league, he’s only managed 3 goals in 5 games and hasn’t made any impact with the stick whenever he gets the chance.
