Nasser Hussain on Indian team
” They’re favorites but they’re not clear favorites because of the amount of quality sides there are. If you look at their squad, they have two of the greatest white ball batters to ever play the game in Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. They have a potential future great in Shubman Gill and Bumrah coming back is fantastic news. So if you look at their batting and bowling, it’s right up there among one of the best squads.”. Nasser Hussain said
The former England player further said that
“An area where they lack is if you look at the batters, they don’t bowl and the bowlers don’t bat. So the side has a different make-upto England and Australia with all the all-rounders.”. Nasser Hussain added
“You could argue that there’s pressure all the time on Indian players. But where they have fallen short is the knockouts since the 2011 World Cup. They need to play above par, play fearless cricket. I think they will get to the knockout stage, but when they get to the semifinal, that’s when they need to play fearless cricket.”. Nasser Hussain concludes
India on Sunday won the Asia Cup final against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka. The match finished within 20 overs from both teams. Furthermore, Sri Lankan batters got out for 50 runs in total. Ishan Kishan got the promotion to open the batting to finish the game.
