Singh Said Selectors Failed in India World Cup Team

Singh said selectors failed to properly choose India World Cup team

Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh said the team management should have groomed someone to bat for the number four position in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 instead of randomly choosing a player. This comes after the Men in Blue were knocked out of the semi-finals against New Zealand by 18 runs. The team's order has also been rocky from the start because there is no permanent player for the No. 4 position.

“The team management should have groomed someone. If someone was failing at No. 4, the team management should have told that player that he was going to play the World Cup,” said Singh in an interview with TOI. “Like in (the) 2003 World Cup, we were playing New Zealand before the tournament, everybody was failing. But the same team played in the World Cup.”

“In between, the team had also tried Dinesh Karthik. Finally, we don't know what their plan was for No. 4. They backed Rishabh (Pant) again, he actually did well. If Rohit (Sharma) and Virat (Kohli) would get out early, we could get into trouble and everyone knew about that. We needed a solid No. 4. I didn't understand the idea behind their plans.”

Meanwhile, host nation England won the World Cup trophy when they beat New Zealand on July 14 at Lord’s Cricket Ground. If you want to know how the tournament works, check out Betwala’s article.
