Freedom of speech should indeed be revisited.
Former Pakistan cricketer Danish Kaneria slammed Team India following their 0-2 loss to Bangladesh in the One-Day International series. Kaneria encouraged them to focus on India rather than the IPL, stating that players may also earn money through international cricket.
“Forget about the IPL and worry about the country.” Indian cricket, not franchise cricket, is the most significant. There is money to be made in franchise cricket, but there is also money to be made in international cricket. These kinds of results will persist unless and until you start paying attention to international cricket,” Kaneria warned on his YouTube channel.
Just like any other pundit, Kaneria stated the obvious by hinting at the rotation policy and said, “Batters are not sure of their position because they have been asked to bat at various positions over the last few months. The bowling attack has kept changing. There has been no proper planning or execution. I don’t even think there is a plan in place. Indian cricket has gone down and Bangladesh have got a very good chance of winning the Test matches as well.”
Indian Cricket’s future fixtures
India will now face Bangladesh in the third and final ODI, with their pride on the line.
A struggling Indian team, decimated by on-field injuries and fitness issues, will be determined to escape the humiliation of a clean sweep against Bangladesh in the last ODI of the three-match series on Saturday.
Bangladesh has already sealed the series with two contrasting yet amazing knocks from Mehidy Hasan Miraz, but if Litton Das’ men can blank the ‘Men in Blue 3-0, it will be a historic first in the country’s cricket. Because of the short turnaround time between the first ODI in Bangladesh and the last game in New Zealand, India had 20 cricketers initially available for this series, since several players in both sides were common.
