Leeds Team India is being criticized all around after a humiliating defeat by an innings and 76 runs in the third Test against England. India’s batting lineup is flopping badly. The batsmen of the Indian team have had a very poor performance. Former England captain Michael Vaughan has described a player of Team India as a burden.
ENG VS IND: Former England captain Michael Vaughan has given great advice to Team India. Talking on Cricbuzz, Michael Vaughan said, “Rahane has become a burden for Team India. Earlier, the way England had dropped Dominic Sibley and Jack Crowley from the team, in the same way, India should also make changes in their team.”
Let us tell you that Ajinkya Rahane’s performance in the current Test series against England has been very poor. Rahane scored a total of 28 runs in both the innings in the third Test as well. For Rahane who is constantly flopping, many veterans are discussing to sit him out.
Rahane scored the last century for India in the Melbourne Test on the Australia tour last year and since then he has been struggling to score runs consistently. Although he played an innings of 61 runs in the Lord’s Test match in this series against England, in the very next Test, he again proved to be laggy.
Indian batsman’s performance was nothing special
Apart from Rahane, the performance of the batsmen of the Indian team was not special, whether it was captain Virat Kohli himself or Rishabh Pant. There itself, Talking about the opening pair, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Pujara are also not consistent in scoring runs and have scored runs on a few occasions.
Lack of consistency in Rahane’s performance
The former English captain further said that at the moment, Rahane is an issue and I think when you see these things happening, you have to make changes. England made changes, they dropped Jack Crowley and Sibley from the team. I think India also needs to change. At the same time, England should also change one or two players at the (Kennington) Oval.
He said about Rahane whether he is being supported because of being the vice-captain of Team India. Or because he has played brilliant innings for the team in the last few years. But in my view, the lack of consistency in his performance is clearly visible.
