India lagging behind in major tournaments due to lack of sense of security among players: Uthappa

Uthappa said in an interview to PTI, “I think the players lack a sense of security about their place in the team. There have been constant changes in the team for a long time.

Dubai. Former India cricketer Robin Uthappa believes that insecurity among players about their place in the national team is proving fatal for the team in crucial matches of big tournaments. India won its last World Cup in 2011 (ODI) while its last ICC tournament was Champions Trophy in 2013. The team has subsequently been eliminated several times after reaching the knockout stages of the ODI World Cup and T20 World Cup. After retiring from international cricket, Uthappa is currently serving Dubai Capitals in the International League T20. Uthappa said in an interview to PTI, “I think the players lack a sense of security about their place in the team. There have been constant changes in the team for a long time.

When a player doesn’t feel safe, he always has the mindset to defend his spot. On the contrary, when he is sure about the place, he can concentrate better on his performance. Just look at it, most of the times the titles have been won by the teams which have made less changes in the playing XI. The success of Chennai (Super Kings) and Mumbai (Indians) also confirm this. Is.

The players are not feeling secure with what has been happening in the Indian team for some time now and their performance at crucial junctures does not stand out. Uthappa, who played 46 ODIs and 13 T20 Internationals for India, also criticized the dropping of players in the next match after performing well. He said, “Kuldeep being dropped from the team after being named man of the match in the Bangladesh Test series has sent a good message at a larger level. You can explain Kuldeep once but what message goes to the team? This sends a wrong message to the young players that even after getting the man of the match, your place in the team is not confirmed.

He said, “I am not aware of what is happening inside the team but I feel the same from outside. It is sure that we do not have any dearth of talent but they should be confident about their place in the team. Uthappa had to retire from Indian cricket to play in foreign leagues but he has no regrets about it. He said, “I am thrilled to be playing competitive cricket for the first time in six months. It is a good tournament, the best players of the world are playing here. .

I had to make a decision, so I made that decision.” Uthappa played a brilliant inning of 43 runs in his debut match in this league. With his innings, Dubai Capitals defeated Abu Dhabi Knight Riders by a huge margin of 73 runs. In preparation for the next T20 World Cup (2024), he advocated allowing young players to play in tournaments like the Caribbean Premier League, saying, “The BCCI is so well placed in world cricket that it can do whatever it needs to do.” Can give Indian players a chance to play in outside leagues. “He said,” The next T20 World Cup will be held in the West Indies and America, so at least young players can be given a chance to play in the Caribbean Premier League. This will give them the skills to analyze situations and deal with pressure situations.
