Venkatesh Prasad: ‘Despite the money and power, we are far from how champion sides are’: Venkatesh Prasad launches scathing attack on Team India | Cricket News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Team India’s experiment of resting skipper Rohit Sharma and star batter Virat Kohli from the second ODI against the West Indies backfired badly as the visitors suffered a crushing six-wicket defeat on Saturday.

India’s below par performance in the second ODI did not go well with Venkatesh Prasad as the former India pacer launched a scathing attack and questioned the team’s approach and attitude for their underperformance in the past.
Prasad took to Twitter to voice his ire and hand India a reality check about their performance in the limited overs format.

“Test cricket aside, India has been very ordinary in the other two formats for quite sometime now. Lost odi series against ban, SA and Aus. Poor in the last two T20 World Cups. Neither are we an exciting team like England nor brutal like how the Aussies used to be,” Prasad tweeted.
“Despite the money and power, we have become used to celebrating mediocrity and are far from how champion sides are. Every team plays to win and so does India but their approach and attitude is also a factor for underperformance over a period of time,” he further added.
India middle-order batters failed to cope with pace, bounce and turn, getting all-out for 181 in 40.5 overs in the rain-marred second ODI.
In reply, West Indies survived a lively spell from Shardul Thakur (3/42 in 8 overs) before skipper Shai Hope (63 not out, 80 balls) and young Keacy Carty (48 not out, 65 balls) added 91 runs for the unbroken fifth wicket to close the game in 36.4 overs and break a chain of nine successive bilateral defeats since December, 2019.
