‘Seeing it for the first time. India are repeating Pakistan’s mistake from 90s’ | Cricket

India’s roster for a three-game ODI series against Zimbabwe was announced on Saturday, with Shikhar Dhawan continuing to lead the squad in the absence of Rohit Sharma (half-time). It was a fairly young squad with a large number of first-teamers being equipped for the series; they would likely return for the Asian Cup, which was to begin just four days after Zimbabwe’s ODIs were completed. While the senior players were expected to rest for the series, former Pakistani captain Rashid Latif fears India is repeating Pakistan’s mistakes in the 1990s.

Speaking of the constant shuffling of captains in recent months, Latif said Pakistan did something similar in the 1990s and it hurt their side. The former Pakistani wicket-keeper, who himself led the squad in 2003 (6 Tests and 25 ODIs), stated that India focuses more on leadership than the other aspects of the game.

“Everyone is talking about backup. But they have spawned seven backup captains in the past year! This is the first time I see this in the history of India. Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah…they repeat the same mistake that Pakistan made in the 1990s,” Latif said on his YouTube channel. Caught behind.

“They haven’t found a solid opener, nor do they have a stable middle order. They just want a new captain. No captain plays for them consistently. KL Rahul is unfit now, Rohit was unfit for that. Virat is mentally unfit. So they will be there They need to think about it. They change so many captains… they need a leader like Sourav Ganguly, MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli,” said the former Pakistani cricketer.

Team India is currently in the West Indies, where the side is competing in a five-match T20I series. After already winning the Windies 3-0 in the ODIs, India recorded a comprehensive 68-run victory in Friday’s first T20I and will be back in action on August 1 for the second game of the five-game rubber.
