    Unattended slots in the team’s roster were revealed after India lost their first ODI series at home since 2019, and they are now topics of conversation among fans and experts. The ICC ODI World Cup 2023 is expected to start on October 5, thus India needs to fix all of its problems as soon as possible. A number of specialists have made attempts to shed light on these issues.

    Dinesh Karthik, a former Indian wicketkeeper and current commentator, recently attacked several Indian team stars during a discussion with Cricbuzz on his observations. Karthik said Kohli’s dismissal was the crucial turning moment in India’s chase, which caused the rest of the Indian batting order to fall one by one. In addition, he appeared dissatisfied with KL Rahul for playing it safe during their partnership with Virat Kohli and failed to hold his own when he finally decided to go big, failing to last for more than five or six deliveries. Further, he claimed that once Kohli was eliminated, Hardik avoided taking huge swings and “fell into a shell.”

    “KL Rahul and Virat Kohli stitched a partnership in which Virat Kohli started positively, but KL Rahul was sedated through it. When KL Rahul started going, he lasted just five to six balls. When Hardik Pandya came, he took on and started playing shots. The moment Virat Kohli got out, things changed drastically post that. Hardik went into a shell and wasn’t trying to play those big sweeps that he played at the outset. He controlled himself and played to the situation,” said Karthik.

    He further questioned Kohli’s shot selection and his timing to play Agar in the air which saw him giving away his wicket. He wondered whether Kohli should have delayed that fateful shot after giving the ball some flight while attempting to play a similar shot in the previous over.

    “He started really well and played some attractive shots. He was bogged down a little by spin through the middle but fought it through in typical Kohli style. He made a tactical error. It was Ashton Agar’s last over. Should he have delayed that shot, considering he tried it in the previous over and it almost carried? He’d be very disappointed thinking that there was a chance for him to take the team through and he didn’t,” Karthik added.
