WI tour of India: Challenge Ahead for Rohit Sharma

WI tour of India:

WI tour of India is going to be challenging for Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, at first the team is struggling with a middle-order problem and for the ODI series India has already lost their two key players Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer, both of them have tested positive of Covid-19 and their participation in the ODI series has now been under the scanner.

with the loss of Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer, the problem has already started for Rohit Sharma, and with the current form of West Indies, the task gets even tougher, West Indies beat the English side by 3-2.

India on the other hand got a clean sweep by South Africa and lost the test series as well, so the confidence of the team would be pretty shaken at the moment, so for Rohit Sharma, the first task will be bringing the confidence back in the side.

apart from batting the bowling is going to be another concern for the Indian skipper, Bhuvneshwar Kumar looked really out of form as he was unable to capitulate with the new ball, failed to stop the flow of runs in the death overs.

the ODI series against West Indies may be the last chance for Bhuvneshwar Kumar to get his rhythm back otherwise, it is going to be a tough road for the Veteran bowler.

Record ODI

the first ODI between the two sides will mark India’s 1000th ODI match, and they will become the first-ever team to play the 1000 ODI matches, on the second number we have the Australian team which has played 958 ODIs.

India has played 999 ODI and they have registered 518 wins and they have been defeated in 431 ODIs, so the Indian team would like to make their 1000th ODI a rememberable one.

Crowd or No Crowd?

Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) has said they have got no such instruction from BCCI about how much crowd is allowed, and whether the crowd is allowed or not.

this is because not many days ago there was a surge in the Covid-19 cases in the country and some of the states went into weekend lockdown and moreover Indian camp got hit by Covid-19 as well.

So, allowing the crowd may be risky for the players and for the fans as well, so it is completely up to BCCI whether they allow the fans to come on the ground or not.
