Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has talked about the performance of both teams after the defeat of Team India against Sri Lanka. Akhtar told that in addition to where Team India missed this match, he also counted the mistakes of captain Rohit Sharma. Akhtar believes that the Asia Cup 2022 before the T20 World Cup is a wake-up call for Team India and this team now needs to work on their bowling.
Shoaib Akhtar said, 'Now we come to India, what is the performance of India? Where does India go from here? One mistake you have not made is that you have to remove the captain now. You don't have to remove the captain, Rohit Sharma looked quite uncomfortable, he was screaming, screaming on the field. In the Indian camp, he made three changes in three matches. Rohit brought in Ashwin, brought in Rishabh Pant, and dropped Dinesh Karthik. Dropped Ravi Bishnoi.
Akhtar further said, 'I felt that there is a little uncertainty in the team. When there are a lot of changes in the team, then we used to guess that all is not going well. If we look at the positives, this is a very good wake-up call for India. Especially Team India got to know how the final XI was to be. This is a very good thing that has happened for India.
Akhtar further said, 'India will have to see whether there has been a wake-up call for them before the World Cup and also what should be the final XI. Overall, India's performance has not been that bad. From here it is necessary that Team India strengthen its bowling.
