In the second match of the series of 3 ODIs being played against Australia, the defeat of team India’s Shamarnak has been lost in the series. Earlier, in the opening match of the series, Team India had to face defeat. Presently, hosts Australia are leading 2–0.
Former India opener Gautam Gambhir is very angry with Team India’s successive defeats, he has also continuously questioned the captaincy of Kohli. In fact, in the second ODI, captain Kohli got his main bowler Jasprit Bumrah to spell just 2 overs in the beginning, due to which he is very angry.
On ESPN Cricinfo’s post match show, Gautam Gambhir said, “To be honest, his captaincy is beyond my comprehension. We have already discussed how important it is to take a wicket in the beginning if we have to stop such a batting line-up, then you get your dominant bowler (Bumrah) 2 overs. In ODIs, most bowlers perform three spells of 4, 3, 3 overs or four-four overs. ”
Gambhir further said, “However, if you get your leading fast bowler to do just 2 overs, then I don’t understand such captaincy. I cannot even define this kind of captaincy. This is not T20 cricket, I did not understand this decision and there is no reason for it, it was bad captaincy. ”
Gautam Gambhir has also advised players like Washington Sundar and Shivam Dubey to be selected in the team and said that if such players are not in the team then it is a big mistake of the selectors. In fact, in the first two ODIs, Captain Kohli played with only 5 bowlers, while there was not a single additional bowling option in the team.
