"There's no clarity in planning..."- Akash Chopra slams Indian Team Management

UAE hasn't been a happy hunting ground for the Indians as they were knocked out from consecutive tournaments without being qualified for the finals.

The heartbeat of the T20 World Cup, 2021 is still as fresh as ever. Due to two successive defeats against Pakistan and New Zealand, India was knocked out from the group stage. Within a year another setback happened as India faced two successive defeats against Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Super 4 stage in the Asia Cup and was unable to qualify for the final.

Team India played the last T20 WC under Virat Kohli's captaincy. It was the last assignment for Virat as captain and Ravi Shastri as Head coach. Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid took the charge of the team as captain and head coach of the team but this duo fail too as they were unable to make India qualify for the Asia Cup final.

Akash Chopra's statement:

Now former Indian opener Akash Chopra came up with an analysis on this official YouTube channel.

Chopra said, "When we lost here last year, many said it was because of Virat Kohli and that they should change the captain. Now even Rohit Sharma couldn't win here. So that shows that the team selection is the problem and not the captain,"

"Last time you suddenly picked players out of the blue and left out (Yuzvendra) Chahal. You opened with Ishan Kishan. And now you continue to do the same. You opened with Ishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, and Deepak Hooda, and now suddenly you don't have Dinesh Karthik the finisher at No. 7, and have just three (fast) bowling options", he added.

"India might play Deepak Chahar and Axar Patel or Ravi Bishnoi. You need to play wicket-taking bowlers and play DK if you aren't going to give Hooda any overs. There is a lack of clarity in the planning. We do so many changes looking at the opposition, but Sri Lanka and Pakistan have made just one change each and yet are in the final,” he concluded.
