New Delhi: After the defeat of Australia in the World Test Championship final, the Indian cricket team has been under constant attack by former cricketers. Team India’s performance was being criticized from the very first day of the match, but the way the Indian team surrendered in just one session on the last day was shocking. This is the reason why the team is on everyone’s target. Former spinner Harbhajan Singh has even called the confidence of Team India fake.
In this match, Team India’s bowling could not show its strength, while the batting was a complete flop. In such a situation, questions are bound to arise on it. These questions are also because Team India kept performing strongly in almost every Test series before the final. Especially in the home ground, the fort of the Indian team has been impregnable.
Team India’s consistent success at home helped them reach the finals but former spinner Harbhajan Singh termed it as ‘fake confidence’. Harbhajan, who was doing commentary in this match, left no stone unturned in his verbal attack after Team India’s defeat. Harbhajan reprimanded and said that Indian players have gained false confidence by winning on pitches on which the ball starts spinning from day one.
Harbhajan did not stop here. He instructed Team India to work hard for the five days so that the team could be ready for the big matches. The veteran off-spinner clearly said that many things need to be rectified.
It is bound to raise questions on Team India. In consecutive big tournaments, Team India is failing after a good start. After all, there will be criticism for not winning any ICC title for 10 years. Questions will be raised on the mentality of the players. Why Indian players repeatedly fail in knockout matches. Despite having a good team and legendary names, Team India does not have any title.
