Rahul Dravid told the reason for Virat Kohli’s failure (Photo-PTI)
New Delhi, The Indian team once again lost the ICC tournament. This is going on for the last ten years. Since winning the Champions Trophy 2013, India has failed in every ICC tournament. Team India lost the final four times. The reason for India’s failures is also the failure of its top 4 batsmen. In this Pujara and Virat Kohli Most have failed. Team India’s head coach Rahul Dravid was also asked a question on this issue and he explained why the performance of India’s top 4 batsmen including Virat Kohli-Pujara has been so poor.
Rahul Dravid told in a conversation with Star Sports that the top order batsmen of Team India are amazing. It is because of him that Team India has won the Test series twice in Australia. But in some series the batting conditions were not good. According to Rahul Dravid, now every country is making difficult pitches to win the World Test Championship.
Virat-Pujara’s average dropped due to difficult pitch?
Rahul Dravid further said that not only India, but the average of batsmen of other teams has also dropped. The pitch is being made difficult to win every match in the World Test Championship. Test matches are ending quickly everywhere. By the way, this statement of Rahul Dravid is strange because on the pitch where batsmen like Pujara and Virat are failing, Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja have scored runs. Steve Smith, Marnus Labushen and Joe Root have given good performance on the same pitches. In such a situation, it is really strange to tell the pitch as the reason for the poor performance.
Poor performance of Virat-Pujara
Let us tell you that in the last three years, the performance of Virat and Pujara has been very bad. Both average less than 30 in the Test format. At the same time, in the current World Test Championship, both the players played 17-17 matches and the average of both was 32. Both the players were able to score only 1-1 century.
tell you this world test championship Joe Root scored 1915 runs at an average of over 53. Usman Khawaja also managed to score 1621 runs at an average of over 64. The average of Labushen, Smith, Babar Azam was also more than 50.
