“No excuse though from…”: Ravi Shastri Expresses Disappointment On India’s Fielding

In a recent cricket match, India’s fielding performance came under intense scrutiny, drawing sharp criticism from none other than Ravi Shastri, the former head coach of the Indian cricket team. The match, featuring India and Nepal, unfolded in Pallekele on September 4th and left much to be desired regarding fielding excellence.

The day began with optimism as India won the toss and elected to bowl first, aiming to assert dominance in the game. However, their fielding woes started to surface right from the outset. In the first over of the match, Shreyas Iyer put down a catch off the bowling of Mohammed Shami. This early missed opportunity would set the tone for what was to follow.

As the game progressed, it became evident that India’s fielding was not up to the high standards that fans and cricket experts have come to expect from Rohit Sharma’s formidable squad. Virat Kohli and Ishan Kishan, usually reliable fielders, also failed to capitalize on straightforward chances.

Ravi Shastri, known for his candid commentary, did not hold back in expressing his disappointment with India’s fielding display. He minced no words in describing it as “sloppy” and left no room for excuses. Shastri, a former cricketer, emphasized that the missed catches were as straight forward from the wicketkeeper’s perspective.

“Sloppy from India, really! This is straightforward. Ample time. No excuse though from the keeper’s point of view. This is as straightforward as it can get,” exclaimed an irate Shastri.

The consequences of these dropped catches were significant. Taking advantage of the fielding lapses, Nepal managed to post a target of 231 runs. In response, India had started positively, reaching 17/0 in 2.1 overs when rain intervened, halting play.

India’s fielding performance in the match against Nepal left much to be desired, prompting sharp criticism from Ravi Shastri. The missed catches and lapses in the field were uncharacteristic of a team known for its high standards. As the cricketing world watches, India’s fielding unit faces the challenge of regaining its excellence in the upcoming matches.
