Nasser Hussain on India- IND vs ENG

Nasser Hussain was having an interaction with Sky Sports and was asked about Indian Cricket Team.” Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid came to change timid cricket. And they did it in the bilaterals. They did it against England. Suryakumar Yadav smashed it around Trent Bridge and got a brilliant 115 (117 off 55). But then, you’ve got to take it into a game, where you know that if you lose, the sort of criticism you are going to get. The first time they took that into a knockout game. They slid back into their old style of being 66 for 2 in 10 overs.” said Nasser Hussain

England was quite disciplined-

England was quite disciplined in their approach restricting India to a par score of 168 runs. It was not an easy task. England’s bowlers were disciplined in their approach. As they didn’t give any freebies. Skipper Jos Buttler was rotating the bowlers quite brilliantly which frustrated the Indian batters.

It comes to knockout games- Hussain-

“India is still a massive force, you look at their team on paper and you look at the players they could’ve picked. It’s a bit like England. There were a couple of blows like most sides, like Jasprit Bumrah and Jadeja being injured. But, when it comes to knockout games, the approach needs to change. There’s talk about younger guns coming through but it’s not the players, but the mindset.”

Lack of Intent from Batters-

Perhaps, the Indian Cricket Team will have to take a leaf out of England’s attacking approach. The openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma looked in two minds whether to attack or defend and in doing that they played a lot of dot balls.
