India vs New Zealand: 'We are here to play cricket’, KL Rahul dismisses pollution concerns ahead of 1st T20I
Like Delhi, Jaipur's air pollution levels too rose after Diwali earlier this month. Jaipur reported very poor AQI levels on Saturday and smog enveloped the city even on Monday morning.
Kohli, who has taken rest for the T20 series and one Test against New Zealand to recover bubble fatigue in COVID times, has relinquished captaincy in the shortest format after the showpiece event.
Here's a look at the Indian cricket team's biggest achievements under coach Ravi Shastri.
The Shastri-Kohli duo along with bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar were part of a set-up that won two Test series in Australia.
To point to the lack of success at ICC events and criticise the leader(s) involved is very natural, very human. To do so by excluding all else smacks of a lack of basic understanding of the dynamics of professional sport.
Gavaskar felt Rohit was the ‘best man’ to lead India to an ICC trophy, with the Men In Blue having won one last in the 2013 Champions Trophy under MS Dhoni.
Shastri also heaped praise on outgoing bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar, whose tenures too ended with the team's World Cup campaign.
Shastri was appointed Team Director by erstwhile BCCI president Srinivasan back in 2014 after India lost the Test series in England 1-3.
As a new leadership group prepares to take charge, the immediate task is straightforward – get the house in order with the next World Cup in Australia, 11 months away, in mind. This trophy-less drought has gone on too long, honestly.
Rohit, who will be taking over T20 captaincy from the New Zealand series, is also being tipped to lead India in the 2023 ODI World Cup and the formal announcement in that regard may happen sooner than later.
India paid the price for losing back-to-back games against Pakistan and New Zealand early on as Virat Kohli and his men failed to reach the semifinals of the showpiece event.
The outgoing India bowling coach also said the team was in a much better position now than when he joined the side seven years ago.
Asked if the absence of a gap between the Indian Premier League and the T20 World Cup became a factor, India bowling coach Arun responded in the positive.
Besides Kohli and Rohit, other Indian stars like Jasprit Bumrah, Ravichandran Ashwin and mentor MS Dhoni were also seen talking to the Scottish players.
India will have to redefine their T20 culture and integrate their talent with the right attitude if they aren’t to remain static in a fast-evolving landscape.
BCCI announced the appointment of former captain Dravid as the head coach of the national team on Wednesday. He will replace Ravi Shastri, who formed a successful partnership with skipper Virat Kohli.
Chand, 28, had called time on his playing career in India earlier this year and is currently representing the USA team.
