Prior to the crucial ICC T20 World Cup beginning on October 16, the BCCI’s Asia Cup Review meeting revealed that India’s batting in the middle overs between overs 7 and 15 is the key area of worry.
On October 23, India will face Pakistan in Melbourne in the opening game of the championship event.
The team for the major event and the six T20I games against Australia and South Africa, which begin on September 20, were both named by the BCCI on Monday.
But aside from choosing the team, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, secretary Jay Shah, and the national selection committee also talked about the national team’s disappointing performance at the continental competition.
Yes, there was discussion of the Asia Cup performance. But it’s clear that answers and what needs to be improved during the T20 World Cup are more important than problems.
While there were several problems, everyone concurred that India’s mediocre middle-over batting strategy is a concern when playing better teams and was a problem throughout the Asia Cup.
