Ashwin taunted Rohit-Rahul for the defeat in T20 World Cup, said – We used to lose in powerplay only
Team India’s performance in the T20 World Cup was not as good as expected. In the semi-finals of the tournament, England lost to the Indian team by 10 wickets in a one-sided match. After this defeat, questions are being raised about the batting of Indian openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma. Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who was part of the World Cup team, also took a jibe at Rahul and Rohit.
Ashwin said on his YouTube channel, “Sometimes we used to lose matches in the powerplay itself. We used to score around 30 during the powerplay, whereas the opposition team used to score around 60. The match used to end there. Some people may not know these statistics but most of the matches are won and lost during powerplay only.
Let us tell you that after the defeat in T20 World Cup 2022, it has gained momentum that Team India should drop senior players like KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, R Ashwin from the T20 team while focusing on the future. According to the reports, Hardik Pandya can be given the captaincy of Team India in T20 format. Right now he is also captaining in the T20 series being held in New Zealand.
