T20 World Cup: sunil gavaskar reveals the real reason behind India’s loss

Former captain Sunil Gavaskar said that Indian batsmen’s failure to score runs against strong teams was the main reason for the team’s early exit from the T20 World Cup and urged the team to change its attitude in the powerplay overs. India crashed out of the race for the semi-finals after losing to Pakistan and New Zealand in the first two matches of the Super 12.

Gavaskar said, “The way Pakistan and New Zealand bowlers curbed our batsmen, did not let them play freely, that was the main reason why India could not progress. The dew (in the second innings) was making batting easier because The ball was not turning and the spinners were going straight.

“There was an advantage to bat later but if you had scored 180, the bowlers would have got an extra 20-30 runs to defend. When you are scoring 111 (against New Zealand), the dew doesn’t matter. We have scored runs,” he said. and that is the main reason, nothing more.”

Gavaskar is not in favor of a radical change in the team and asked the team to change its attitude in the powerplay overs. “I don’t think a radical change in the team will make any difference. You need to change your attitude, like taking advantage of the powerplay overs that India haven’t been able to do in the last few World Cups,” he said.

Gavaskar said, “The truth is that in the first six overs only two fielders are outside the 30 yards, India has not taken advantage of it in the last few ICC tournaments. There are bowlers… so he can’t score runs. That needs a change.”

Gavaskar also said that another reason for India’s poor performance was the fielding. He said, “Second and very important, they should have players who are exceptional in fielding. The way New Zealand fielded, saved runs, took catches, it matters a lot.”
