Sunil Gavaskar exposed the big problem of Team India, Rohit’s team will have to improve before the World Cup
Former Team India captain Sunil Gavaskar has said that defending the target has always been the problem of Team India. This problem of India was also exposed during the first ODI against New Zealand.
Former captain of the Indian team Sunil Gavaskar said that defending the target has always been the problem of Team India. India beat New Zealand by 12 runs in the first ODI to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series. India had given New Zealand a mammoth target of 350 runs, in response to which the Kiwis were reduced to 131 for 6 wickets. Still New Zealand did not give up and kept fighting till the last over. Because of this, once again questions are being raised on the strategy of defending India’s target.
Sunil Gavaskar said, “I think this has always been one of India’s problems. Being unable to defend India has always been good at chasing. Had India been given a similar situation to get 350, I think with India’s batting being the way they are, they would have got it.”
He said, “As we have seen. We have seen it before in T20 format. India can reach 190-200 but have trouble defending totals. So it is clear that the bowling department is a matter of concern for India. Here you have to think.

This year the ODI World Cup will be played in India. In such a situation, the question raised by Sunil Gavaskar, India will have to find a solution to it as soon as possible. Because before the tournament, India no longer has many ODIs to play. In such a situation, the team should go with better bowlers.
