The Legend of WI accuses Indian cricketers of having an “arrogance” superiority complex


The legendary pacer of WI came hard on Team India and also commented on their poor show in the finals of the WTC.

It’s been around 4 days since the defeat of Team India against Australia in the finals of the World Test Championship by 209 runs at the Oval, but it looks like the wounds are still fresh. Since the 2013 Champions Trophy, India has messed up eight opportunities to add ICC silverware, including two WTC finals.
The legendary pacer of the West Indies, Andy Roberts, is the latest to criticise the performance of Team India, accusing them of being arrogant and overconfident. With the IPL vs. country debate not dying down anytime soon, Roberts, who is the greatest fast bowler of his time and part of the famous Windies pace quartet, says that India needs to get their priorities straight.
Roberts said that “there is this arrogance that has crept into Indian cricket, and through this, India has underestimated the rest of the world. India must decide what their focus is test cricket or limited overs cricket. T20 cricket will run its course. There is no contest between bat and ball there.”
He further added that “I expected India to show their batting strength. I saw no bright spot in the final, although Ajinkya Rahane fought hard and got hit on his hand. Shubman Gill looks good when he plays those shots, but he stands on the leg stump and is often dismissed, bowled, or caught behind. He has good hands, but he must get behind the ball. Virat Kohli, though, got a brute of a delivery from Mitchell Starc in the first inning. India have some very good players, mind you, but they have not performed creditably away from home.”
