‘India Need To Improve Their Skill Set’, Venkatesh Prasad Not Happy With Hardik Pandya’s Approach

India’s tour of the West Indies came to an end with a setback in the T20I series. It is India’s first bilateral defeat in this format since 2021. As a consequence of this outcome, India’s impressive unbeaten streak of 12 consecutive series victories has come to an end.

After the loss in this five-match T20I series, Indian captain Hardik Pandya has said that he is not too much worried about the loss but former Indian bowler Venkatesh Prasad is not happy with the casual attitude of Pandya. He said that team India and the management needs to introspect the performance of the team specially in the limited over cricket.

The West Indies tour started for India with a Test series win. After that they beat the hosts by 2-1 in a three-match ODI series.

Venkatesh Prasad came on Twitter and said,“India has been a very very ordinary limited overs side for sometime now. “They have been humbled by a West Indies side that failed to qualify for the T20 WC a few months back. We had also lost to Ban in the ODI series. Hope they introspect instead of making silly statements.”

Prasad’s statement was all for captain Hardik Pandya where he said that sometimes losing is also important. The former bowler then said that West Indies has not even qualified for the ODI World Cup and it is so embarrassing to lose the match against them.

“Not just 50 overs, West Indies had failed to qualify for the T20 World cup last Oct- Nov as well. It pains to see India perform poorly and brush it under the carpet, under the garb of process. That hunger, fire is missing and we live in an illusion,” he wrote.

He also added,”India needs to improve their skill set. There is a hunger & intensity deficiency & often the captain looked clueless. Bowler’s can’t bat, batsmen can’t bowl. It’s important to not look for yes men and be blinded because someone is your favourite player but look at the larger good.”
