Venkatesh Prasad Criticises the Indian Team, “Humbled By Team That Failed To Qualify…”


The Indian team’s lack of tenacity in white-ball cricket has been criticised by Venkatesh Prasad numerous times.

The Indian side completed an impressive comeback to tie the T20I series against West Indies at 2-2 by the end of the fourth game after falling behind 0-2 in the first two games. But the team’s problems that had caused them to lose the first two games returned after the fifth T20I defeat. The Indian squad suffered a rare T20I series loss, and critics have gone out swinging, attacking the way the team handled itself on the pitch. Hardik Pandya’s men were attacked by Venkatesh Prasad, a vocal opponent of the group in recent years, who claimed they were deluded.

Brandon King’s dashing 85 not out off 55 balls in the series opener helped West Indies win the five-match series 3-2. This set up an easy 18-over victory. The squad lacked hunger and fire, according to Prasad, who wrote a vehement post on X (previously Twitter).

Since quite some time, India has been a very very ordinary limited overs team. The West Indies team, which didn’t make the T20 World Cup cutoff a few months ago, has humbled them. In the ODI series, Ban had also defeated us. Prasad tweeted, “Hope they reflect rather than make baffling statements

“West Indies didn’t just lose in 50 overs; they also missed out on the T20 World Cup in October and November of last year. It hurts to see India do poorly and have its shortcomings swept under the rug in the name of procedure. He said, responding to a supporter, “That hunger, that fire is lacking and we live under an illusion.

The Indian batsmen posted a below-par total of 165 for nine after choosing to bat on a used track that had grown slower within 24 hours of putting on a batting masterclass on a featherbed, with the exception of Suryakumar Yadav’s laborious but successful 61 off 45 balls.

Surya had to temper his flare a little since the pitch made it difficult to make strokes, but he still had enough firepower to hit four fours and three sixes during his knock.

In response, West Indies starter King and India’s arch-enemy Nicholas Pooran added 107 runs for the second wicket despite three weather-related delays, with Pooran looking much more fluid (47 not out off 35 balls) and King dominating.
