The Indian team is now looking really strong as opposition for any team having 10 wins under their belt.

All this has been to the fact that India have now changed their playing tactics in recent games.

In last year’s ICC T20 World Cup, India looked rather conservative than aggressive.

The result of this intent were losses to Pakistan and New Zealand in the T20 World Cup.

Even Virat Kohli admitted that they weren’t brutal enough to attack the opposition bowlers.

But now, with the emergence of Rohit Sharma as the all-format captain for India, the team is looking balanced.

This has really calmed down the team environment also and all players get equal opportunities to play in matches.

India now have got great batsmen like Suryakumar Yadav and Venkatesh Iyer to finish off the innings for them and Shreyas Iyer to capitalise on the start the team gains in the powerplay.

Even Ishan Kishan was impressive with the bat in the first T20I against Sri Lanka 2 days back.

The bowling department is also looking healthy as Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar have recently impressed one and all with their performances while Venkatesh Iyer has paired up wonderfully as the 6th bowling option for India.

Spinners too have looked in fine touch against West Indies and Sri Lanka. Ravi Bishnoi, Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravindra Jadeja have been fruitful for India.

India must continue to play like this so that by the time the T20 World Cup comes up in October, the team is balanced and healthy.
