Head Coach of Indian Cricket Team Rahul Dravid No one wants to give a timeline but by the end of England’s T20Is, he wants to have a good idea of the 18 to 20 players for the T20 World Cup in Australia. India and England will meet in six whiteball games (July 7-17) after a single Test. “As you approach the event, whether you want to strengthen your final squad or not, obviously you want to have some emergencies in the world we live in. But (identity) (Top 18 to 20 players), “he said, answering a question about where he stands on his core team.
“Obviously, injuries and things can be weird changes that are out of your control but we are trying to strengthen this squad as soon as possible.
He revealed that it is difficult to say whether it will be in the next series (Ireland) or in the next series (England) but we are definitely trying to do it as soon as possible.
If there are two people who have not done themselves any favors to join the T20 World Cup squad, they are Raturaj Gaikwad (96 runs in 5 games) and Shriyas Ayre (94 runs in 5 matches) Gaikwad looks completely out of place in international cricket and Air’s struggle against standard fast bowling is now well documented.
However, the head coach chose to be more sympathetic to both of them.
“We’re not going to have a knee-jerk reaction like that. I don’t like people making decisions after a series or a match,” Dravid said.
“On some difficult wickets, Shriyas showed great intent, played really positive for us. Raturaj showed in an innings what he got. We are not disappointed with anyone,” Dravid once again defended his playing days. ۔
“As a group, we wanted to play a certain brand of cricket and we were trying to play a slightly more positive and aggressive brand of cricket from the beginning and we knew that when you try to do that And when we do, it doesn’t always succeed. But we are definitely clear about what kind of cricket we want to play, “he said.
