‘India Has A Large Talent Pool, But…’, Salman Butt Raised Questions On Indian Strategy Before 2023 ODI World Cup

The former cricketer of Pakistan Salman Butt has raised concerns about the Indian team strategy in recent times. The left-handed batter has highlighted that Butt highlighted a notable transformation in India’s playing style since Rahul Dravid assumed the role of head coach. He noted that the team’s previously aggressive and dynamic on-field approach has transitioned into a more composed and relaxed approach under Rahul Dravid’s tenure.

He drew a comparison between this shift and the period when Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri were in charge.

“If you analyse the fitness and body language of the two captains, there is a huge difference. India no longer play aggressive cricket. The team looks very relaxed and laid back. This wasn’t the case earlier, as we could see activeness, aggression, and positive body language,” Butt stated in a recent video on his YouTube channel.

India’s recent five-match T20I series loss to West Indies has raised alarm among fans. The defeat has sparked concerns about India’s journey to the 2023 ODI World Cup.

“India has a large talent pool, but what about combinations? Those are two different things. You may have six more batters, but do you have another Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, or Mohammed Shami? We don’t see the depth in their fast bowling in the second tier,” he added.
