India are currently under the radar for losing out on the Asia Cup 2022. In addition to it, they also lost the first T20I against Australia. India and Australia are currently playing in a three-match T20I series, and the Baggy Greens handed India a humiliating defeat in the first T20I at Mohali. 

Sourav Ganguly, the president of the Indian cricket board, has opened up on the coaching techniques of Rahul Dravid. The former Indian skipper further went on to opine on Rohit Sharma’s captaincy during a promotional event that took place in Kolkata. 

Yes, you can say they didn’t do well in last year’s 20-20 World Cup and then in the Asia Cup this year. There have been discussions with the captain and the coach about the team not being able to perform in the two big events. So, I hope they’ll do better this time,” Sourav Ganguly said on team India.

The president of the Indian cricket board further assured fans of winning the upcoming 20-20 World Cup 2022. However, he also warned team India that if they have to win, they have to play as a unit. “I’m sure Rahul Dravid and Rohit will be concerned about the team. I will be there (at the ground) in Nagpur (for the second T20I against Australia on Friday). Hopefully, India will win,” he added further. 

India will play some practice matches amongst themselves: Sourav Ganguly

The legend further revealed the preparations that will go on before the start of the 20-20 World Cup 2022. Sourav Ganguly added that team India will play games among themselves.

“They’ll be reaching Australia almost two to two-and-a-half weeks before the World Cup. They will train and practice in Perth and play some practice matches amongst themselves and a few warm-up games,” Sourav Ganguly added further. 

“Winning and losing is part of the game. India may have lost a few matches lately, but if you have a look at Rohit Sharma’s win percentage, it’s almost 82 per cent in T20 cricket. He has lost very few matches as captain,” he concluded.
