Team India is playing a series of 5 T20 matches against South Africa. Team India’s batsmen were completely flop in the second T20 match played in Cuttack on Sunday. No Indian batsman could score a half-century in the match. In the absence of captain Rohit Sharma and former captain Virat Kohli, the Indian team’s innings faltered. Electing to bat after losing the toss, the Indian team could only manage 149 runs for the loss of 6 wickets.
At the same time, on Sunday, Virat Kohli shared a photo on social media, in which he is seen sitting alone on a beach. According to media reports, he is holidaying in Maldives with his wife and daughter. A few days ago, Rohit Sharma also shared a photo on social media while celebrating a holiday with family in Maldives.
Senior players’ leave and team is getting defeated
Now questions are being raised that if foreign players playing in IPL have joined their national team, then what was the problem for Virat and Rohit in joining the team. South African players David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, Enrique Nortya and Dwayne Pretorius are playing in the T20 series against India. All these players were also playing in IPL. Trent Boult, Tim Southee and Jonny Bairstow are playing in the ongoing Test series between New Zealand and England. These players were also a part of IPL.
Rohit Sharma was celebrating a holiday in Maldives with his family a few days back.
At the same time, Rashid Khan is playing in the ongoing T20 series between Zimbabwe and Afghanistan. Who was part of the IPL champion Gujarat team. Nicholas Pooran was playing for West Indies in the ODI series between Pakistan and West Indies. Even in the T20 series between Australia and Sri Lanka, many players who played IPL were present. David Warner, Glenn Maxwell and Jos Hazlewood were part of the team for Australia, but this is not the case with Team India.
Virat and Rohit’s bat did not play in IPL
The Mumbai Indians team led by Rohit could not reach the play-offs. At the same time, Rohit also could not do anything special with the bat. He scored just 268 runs in 14 matches at an average of 20. Virat’s bat also did not do anything special in IPL. Three times in the season, he got out on the first ball without opening an account for a golden duck. Kohli scored 341 runs in 16 matches at an average of 22.73. His strike rate was only 115.99.
This year Team India also has to play T20 World Cup in November. South Africa is in the same group as India in the World Cup. In such a situation, the leave of the players before this important series is beyond comprehension. Team India is also suffering the brunt of this with two consecutive defeats.
