The BCCI wants India to win the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in Australia. However, Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah are not happy with players for slow batting in the middle-overs, which has been identified as one of the areas that led to the team’s exit from the Asia Cup 2022.
The management will address the issue in the upcoming series against Australia and South Africa.
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah have held talks with the selectors in this regard.
“Yes, the Asia Cup performance was discussed, and the focus is to work on key areas before the World Cup,” a senior BCCI official privy to developments told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
India’s first match is against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 23.
“There is an obvious issue with batting during the middle overs. It was behind India’s exit from the Asia Cup 2022. We have world-class batters, who need to change as per team’s needs,” the official said.
Meanwhile, there was a lot of buzz about Sanju Samson, but his name was not even discussed during the selection meeting.
