New Delhi: It is said that in order to rectify the mistakes, it is also necessary to recognize and accept the mistakes. Whether it is about studies or work or learning something, it is natural to make mistakes but it cannot be natural to repeat them. Only those who learn from mistakes get better continuously, but the same thing – for that one has to accept mistakes first. Indian Cricket Team is no different from this and she is also making a mistake continuously. The only difference is that they are not ready to accept it as their shortcoming or mistake. Captain Rohit Sharma himself says so.
Australia defeated India by 10 wickets in the second ODI in Visakhapatnam on Sunday, 19 March. This defeat was so bad that Australia achieved the modest target of 118 runs from India in just 55 minutes and 11 overs. Left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Starc settled India on a small score of 117. The Australian pacer took 5 wickets, out of which 4 came in the first 10 overs of the innings. Earlier, Stark also took 3 wickets in Mumbai ODI.

Rohit does not accept any weakness
This performance of the Indian batsmen against Starc again exposed the same shortcoming which has become very serious in the last few years – failure against the left-arm pacer. Despite many examples coming to the fore year after year, the Indian team is not ready to accept it as a weakness. After the defeat of the second ODI, Captain Rohit Sharma himself said that the team management and the batsman do not think whether the bowler is left-handed or right-handed.
The Indian captain even said in very simple words that whether the bowler is left-handed or right-handed, he will definitely take wickets. However, he definitely admitted that falling wickets in any way is a matter of concern for the team and the team needs to think about all that to improve it.

Captain doesn’t see this evidence?
This is not the first time that the left-arm fast bowler has troubled the Indian team so much. At least 6 such cases have come in the last 6 years. In the 2017 Champions Trophy final, Pakistan’s left arm pacer Mohammad Amir destroyed India’s top order. Then in the semi-finals of the 2019 World Cup, New Zealand veteran pacer Trent Boult also took the wickets of KL Rahul and Virat Kohli within the first 5 overs.
Who can forget the 2021 T20 World Cup, where Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi got rid of Rohit Sharma and Rahul in two overs. Similarly, last year England’s left-arm pacer Reece Topley also took 6 wickets against India. Now this story has been repeated in Mumbai and Visakhapatnam as well.
