ICC Cricket WC 2023: No time for experiments, preparations must begin: Mohammad Kaif

ICC Cricket WC 2023:  Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif has suggested that the Indian team should stop experimenting and start preparing for the 2023 ODI World Cup. He said that preparation is necessary to win the cup. 

Team India failed in the T20 World Cup held in October-November. Kohli, Surya and Hardik Pandya shone in the group stage and the team that went to the semis fell like a bull. England lost in a humiliating manner and exited the tournament. All but three or four players failed. As a result, the BCCI has suspended the selection committee. Next year, the ODI World Cup will be held on home soil. Former player Mohammad Kaif made some suggestions to the BCCI on this. 

We are leaving gold for diamonds

Now there is no need to do unnecessary experiments in the team, Kaif said. ‘We are chasing diamonds and losing gold. It’s good to give opportunities to young guys… but veterans should not be left out. Why was Bhuvneshwar not included in the ODI team playing against New Zealand? Also Shardul was sidelined for failing in a match. Deepak Chahar is a good option but he should have been taken up front. How will there be stability in the team if we keep changing players from match to match like this?” Kaif said. 

Kaif said that he should prepare a stable team for the ODI World Cup next year. ‘There is no time for more experiments. We need to prepare for the World Cup now. The players who are considered for the mega tournament should be played again and again. Only then will you get practice. Especially the bowlers should be prepared. Bumrah ruled out of T20 World Cup. Umran Malik, who bowls with good speed, should be prepared for the mega tournament,’ suggested Mohammad Kaif."twitter-tweet">

"In the search for new players, we are losing out on the old ones. There’sa saying: in search of diamonds, we lost the gold”
