Gautam Gambhir On Team India: Team India is on the target of cricket fans after losing to New Zealand in the T20 World Cup-2021. Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has said that Team India is not mentally strong enough to win the big match. Team India has lost two consecutive matches in this World Cup. First they were defeated by Pakistan by 10 wickets and on Sunday, New Zealand were washed by 8 wickets.
Indian batsmen were flop in the match against New Zealand. Team India could score only 110 runs for the loss of 7 wickets in 20 overs. New Zealand achieved the target of 111 runs in 14.3 overs. This defeat has also made it difficult for Team India to reach the semi-finals.
Kohli and Co will have to win the next three matches to stay in the semi-final race and will also have to depend on the results of the other teams in the group. After the loss to New Zealand, Gautam Gambhir said that yes, talent is a thing. You have all the skills and play well in bilateral series, but when it comes to tournaments and matches like that, you have to stand up and perform.
‘Team is not mentally strong’
Gautam Gambhir said, ‘The match against New Zealand was like a quarterfinal. The problem is with the mental strength of the team. You can’t make mistakes when you know you have to win matches. The bilateral series is a different matter. You can make mistakes there. But there is no room for mistakes in such matches. I think Team India is not mentally strong for such matches.
Team India has to play three more matches in the Super-12 stage. If one of these matches is lost, Team India will be out of the tournament. Team India will have to win all these matches by a big margin. This is the fifth defeat of the Indian team against New Zealand in the ICC tournament. She has not won a single match against the Kiwi team since 2003. Gautam Gambhir said that New Zealand have the skills and they are the most dangerous team. But we can’t always talk about it. We have to stand by our team.
