While criticizing the present Indian crew administration’s lack of communication whereas dropping gamers, former India opener Virender Sehwag revealed that MS Dhoni too, at occasions, failed to speak correctly within the dressing room.
Sehwag, who was under no circumstances proud of India’s determination to bench Rishabh Pant repeatedly, cited the instance of former skipper Dhoni. Sehwag revealed that in 2012 Dhoni had mentioned Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar and Gautam Gambhir had been being rotated on the prime of the order as a result of they are slow on the sphere however the identical factor was never communicated to them within the dressing room.
The dashing former batsman revealed the speak within the dressing room was that Rohit Sharma must be given a chance and that’s the reason the rotation coverage is being adopted.
“When MS Dhoni said in Australia that top three are slow fielders, we were never asked or consulted. We got to know from the media. He said at the press conference but not at the team meeting that we are slow fielders,” Sehwag told Cricbuzz.
The former opener was referring to the tri-sequence in Australia in 2012 when Dhoni had determined to rotate Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir on the prime of the order.
“During our time, captain used to go and talk with the player (in question). Now I don’t know if Virat Kohli does the same or not. I am not part of the team setup. But people say that when Rohit Sharma went to Asia Cup as captain, he used to talk to all the players,” he mentioned.
“Rishabh Pant has been left out how will he score runs? If you bench Sachin Tendulkar also, he won’t be able to score runs. If you feel he is a match-winner, why don’t you play him? Because he is not consistent?” Sehwag questioned.
Rishabh Pant misplaced his place within the Indian aspect after being concussed by a Pat Cummins bouncer throughout the India-Australia 1st ODI. Ever since then, KL Rahul has been given the twin position of a ‘keeper batsman. Pant, in fact, is the only one India’s squad, who’s but to get a recreation in New Zealand.
