Team India

Adelaide: Team India’s humiliating defeat in the semi-finals against England has raised many fingers towards the senior players of the Men in Blue including Virat Kohli and Indian skipper Rohit Sharma. Many believe it his high time that the big names like Rohit, Kohli and Rahul bid goodbye to the shortest format of the game. However, Team India’s head coach Rahul Dravid has backed them and said that they have a lot of cricket left in them.

The Men in Blue batting first put 168 runs on the scoreboard with the help of Hardik Pandya’s blazing 66 runs of just 33 balls. However, they failed to even grab even one wicket and as a result England won the match by 10 wickets. Jos Buttler’s unbeaten 80 and Alex Hales’ player of the match award winning knock of 86 not out helped the English side get an easy victory.

Indian head coach Rahul Dravid faced many questions following the loss and a lot of them were about the future of senior players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul.

“The team is going to NZ under Hardik. At this point, a cycle has ended the team. The next is after 2 years. You said about reflection, so what exactly would be the future of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ashwin, and Bhuvneshwar’s future in terms of T20 cricket?” One of the reporters at the presser asked Rahul Dravid.

Rahul Dravid replied by saying “It’s too early to talk about it, just after a semi-final game… These guys have been terrific performers for us. We’ve got a couple of years to reflect on it. These are some really quality players here. Not the right time to talk about or think about this stuff now. We’ll have enough time, enough matches as we go on ahead and try to prepare for the next World Cup.”
