Former India player Venkatesh Prasad has slammed India’s “outdated” approach following their ODI series loss in Bangladesh. Expressing anguish over India’s miserable run in white ball cricket, former seamer Prasad urged the think tank to make “tough calls”. India earlier lost 0-1 to New Zealand in a rain-curtailed ODI series. Playing non-stop cricket, the star-studded Indian batters looked out of place while bowling has been below par. That India have not won a major ICC title since their Champions Trophy triumph in 2013 was once again highlighted by Prasad.
“India is innovating in so many fields across the world. But when it comes to playing Limited overs cricket, our approach is a decade old,” Prasad wrote in a series of tweets.
“England after the 2015 WC first round exit took tough calls and turned around to become such an exciting team, India need to take tough calls…
“And change approach drastically. We haven’t won a T20 WC since the IPL started & last 5 years have been poor in ODI’s apart from winning inconsequential bilateral.
“Haven’t learned from our mistakes for too long and far from being an exciting team in limited overs cricket. CHANGE,” he added.
