Nasser Hussain, the previous England chief, didn’t mince any words in saying that India’s group determination in ICC competitions hasn’t been such extraordinary. In 2013, the Men in Blue won the Champions Trophy in England, beating the hosts in the last. From that point forward, they have equipped for finals and semi-finals of most competitions, yet haven’t gone entirely through.

After MS Dhoni ventured down, India are yet to win an ICC trophy under Virat Kohli’s initiative. They made the 2017 Champions Trophy last and the 2019 World Cup semi-last. However, on the two examples, they wound up on the losing side. Hussain additionally feels that captain Virat Kohli should likewise approach and assume liability for the accidents.

“[Not sure] How much responsibility he [skipper Virat Kohli] takes for this – I would say selection is where India have gone wrong over ICC tournaments,” Hussain said.

Nasser Hussain blames the Indian cricket

In the World Cup, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli scored vigorously in the alliance stages. Actually, Rohit amassed five centuries in the first round. However, in the semis against New Zealand at the Old Trafford in Manchester, both got out efficiently.

The center request couldn’t endure the warmth and crumble like a pack of cards too. Hussain sounded certain about India’s top-request. In any case, he scrutinized India’s center request.

On the off chance that a player is in a World Cup semi-last against New Zealand, and it [the ball] is doing a smidgen, where is the player’s center request in the event that he is 20-2 and Kohli and Sharma are out? Hussain has expressed that it’s nearly the flaw of Indian cricket. That they can be somewhat excessively acceptable at the top. At the point when it’s acceptable and it’s level. Sharma hundred, Kohli hundred, hundreds at the top, and the chaps in the center don’t get a hit.

In the WC semi, after the batting breakdown, Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni gave India trust with a 100 or more stand. By and by, both were excused and India was taken out of the uber occasion after they beat the table in the alliance stage.
