Today match tips : ANGRY with India’s sluggish middle-over batting, Ganguly and Shah meet with selectors.

Once the Asia Cup 2022 is complete, BCCI will focus on the T20 World Cup. But one of the issues that contributed to India’s early demise from the Asia Cup was their sluggish middle-overs batting. Sourav Ganguly, president of the BCCI, and Jay Shah, secretary, have discussed this with the selectors in light of the upcoming series against Australia and South Africa, which would provide India with the chance to correct its shortcomings.

“Yes, there was discussion on the Asia Cup performance. However, remedies and what has to be addressed during the T20 World Cup are clearly more important than issues, a senior BCCI official with knowledge of the situation told PTI on the condition of anonymity.

On October 23, India will face Pakistan in Melbourne in the first game of the championship tournament. The squad for the major event and the six T20I games against Australia and South Africa, which begin on September 20, were both named by the BCCI on Monday.

But apart from choosing the team, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, secretary Jay Shah, and the national selection committee also spoke about the national team’s disappointing performance in the continental competition.

While there were several problems, everyone agreed that India’s mediocre middle-over batting strategy is a concern when playing stronger teams and was a problem throughout the Asia Cup.

“Batting in the middle overs has a clear problem, particularly in the seventh to fifteenth, where we’ve struggled in the Asia Cup. The club’s think tank is aware of this, and we have some world-class players who can modify their game to suit the demands of the squad, the official added.

India’s batting has stumbled between overs 7 and 15, whether they are pursuing or setting a goal.

In the first game, against Pakistan, 59 runs were scored in those nine overs while three wickets were lost. It was 62 runs against Hong Kong and 62 for 1 versus Pakistan in the Super 4s.

Except for the game against Afghanistan, the finest performance occurred against Sri Lanka, when 78 runs were scored off of those nine overs.

The challenge has been dealing with slow bowlers, where several players in the top order haven’t performed up to par.

For WT20, Samson’s name wasn’t brought up.

There was a lot of talk about Sanju Samson possibly replacing Rishabh Pant in the 15-person roster before to the selection of the Indian team. However, it has been learned that the captain of the Rajasthan Royals was not even a contender.

In any event, Sanju will play in the ODIs against South Africa because the selectors want to keep the momentum from the Zimbabwe visit. Additionally, there were no considerations of dumping Pant. The BCCI insider stated, “He can win a match on his day and is the only left-hander we have at the top.
