Team India T20 WC: BCCI Asia Cup Review Meeting: With the 2022 Asian Cup over, BCCI has already set its sights on the T20 World Cup. But India’s slow batting in the middle has been identified as one of the issues that led to India’s early exit from the Asian Cup. While the Australian and South African series should give India the chance to correct the mistakes, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah have held talks with the selectors in this regard.

“Yes, the Asian Cup performance was discussed. But obviously more than the problems, the focus is on the solutions and what are the things that need to be improved during the T20 World Cup,” a senior BCCI official familiar with the developments told PTI on condition of anonymity.

India T20 WC Squad: BCCI UNHAPPY with India’s slow batting in mid overs, Ganguly-Shah talks to selectors, follow live updates

India’s first game of the showpiece event is in Melbourne against rivals Pakistan on October 23. On Monday, the BCCI announced the squad for the showpiece event as well as the six T20I matches against Australia and South Africa, starting September 20.

However, apart from the team selection, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah along with the national selection committee discussed the disappointing performance of the national team in the continental championship.

Although there were some issues, all agreed in unison that India’s walking hitter approach in the middle overs is becoming a problem against top teams and has been a problem during the Asian Cup .

“There is an obvious problem with the stick during the middle overs, especially between the 7th and 15th where we didn’t do well in the Asian Cup. Obviously the team think tank is aware and we have world-class players, who obviously can change their game depending on the needs of the team.” said the official.

Looking at India’s batting, whether setting a target or chasing, they wavered between the 7th and 15th overs.
Against Pakistan in the opening match, 59 runs were scored in those nine overs losing three wickets. Against Hong Kong it was 62 points, while in the Super 4 against Pakistan it was 62 to 1.

The best performance (except for the match against Afghanistan) was against Sri Lanka when 78 runs came out of those nine overs.
The problem has been negotiating slow bowlers, where some of the best players have fallen short.

Samson’s name not discussed for WT20

Prior to the selection of the Indian squad, there was a lot of noise surrounding the possible inclusion of Sanju Samson in the 15-member squad in place of Rishabh Pant. But it has been learned that the skipper of the Rajasthan Royals is not even in the running.

“In any case, Sanju will play the ODIs against South Africa as the selectors will maintain the continuity of the tour in Zimbabwe. Also, there were never any talks about dropping Pant. He’s the only southpaw we have at the top and he can win a game his day. the BCCI source said.
