The performance of the Indian cricket team has been quite good at the international level for the last few years. The team is considered a favorite in almost every tournament. Whatever the format, the Indian team is seen as a strong contender. The Indian team captained by Virat Kohli is at number one position in the world in Tests and second in ODIs. On the other hand, if we talk about T20 format then the rank of Indian team is fourth.
One thing that often strikes the Indian team and its fans in spite of their foray into international cricket is their great performance in the ICC tournament. The Indian team has not won any ICC trophy since 2013. The team reached the final of the 2017 Champions Trophy but was defeated by Pakistan there.
In last year’s World Cup, Virat’s team lost to New Zealand in the semi-finals. BCCI President Saurabh Ganguly has also expressed concern over the team’s performance in the ICC tournament.
Indian team opener Rohit Sharma who was in superb form in the 2019 World Cup. Rohit said that the Indian team should play with Mumbai Indians in the ICC event. Rohit is commanded by the franchisees of Mumbai Indians, loses matches in the league stage in the IPL but ultimately wins the trophy on stage.
Rohin said this while talking about the performance of the Indian team at the ICC events with Smriti Mandhana and Jemima Rodrigues, star players of the Indian women’s cricket team.
Rohit said on YouTube channel, ‘We did not lose any matches on the league stage in the ICC Champions Trophy and finally lost in the finals. Last year, the World Cup also lost just one match before the semi-finals and lost to New Zealand in the semi-finals. Alright, we should not reach the knockout stage by die. ‘
Rohit further joked, ‘Team India should play like Mumbai Indians in ICC events. Slowly climb up the points table and finally win the tournament. ‘
