India’s squad divided after dismal show in T20 World Cup: Shoaib Akhtar

Nov 2, 2021: India which was the favorite for winning the T20 World Cup, before the contest began, has now become the lowest favorite after two defeats.

Given the performance of Man in the Blue, cricket fans expect the mega event to become a party without a host, as from the point of view of the scorecard, it looks like India is looking to exit the tournament soon. While cricket pundits around the world are trying to pinpoint the factors that went wrong for India, former Pakistan bowler Shoaib Akhar says the Virat Kohli-led team looks “divided”.

Shoaib Akhtar, best known by his moniker, Rawalpindi Express shared a video on his You Tube channel, explaining his views on why India’s performance in the Cup has been less than stellar. In a video shared on his YouTube page, the Pakistani great said: “I can see that there are two camps within the team. One is with Kohli and one against Kohli.”

The former Pakistan pacer says, “It is clear the team is looking divided,” adding that he doesn’t know why this is happening.

“Maybe it’s because its Kohli’s last T20 World Cup as a skipper. Maybe he made wrong decisions, which is true.”

However, the former cricketer added that Kohli is a great cricketer, and “we have to respect him”.

Shoaib Akhtar commented on the negative role being played by Indian media for their coverage, he said: “I am not defending the Indian team, but I feel bad because their media has built extra pressure on them.”

“Indian media first hypes up the team by saying that they are unbeatable and after they lose, the players and their families are insulted.”
