Think Beyond Bombay’: Kris Srikkanth Slams Sanjay Manjrekar for Questioning KL Rahul’s Test Selection
Former Indian captain Kris Srikkanth criticized the current Indian Test cricket team, labeling them as overrated and underperforming in recent years. Srikkanth acknowledged India’s strength during the 2-4 years of Virat Kohli’s captaincy, citing notable performances in England, South Africa, and Australia. However, he expressed concern that the team has relied excessively on past achievements since then.
In particular, Srikkanth highlighted the need for India to reevaluate the ICC rankings, asserting that certain players are overrated, while deserving talents remain on the sidelines. He cited Kuldeep Yadav as an example of a quality player not getting enough opportunities in the Test team.
Shifting focus to limited-overs cricket, Srikkanth praised Team India as a formidable ODI side, emphasizing their strength in crucial matches. However, he criticized their T20 performance, deeming the team as highly overrated in the shortest format. Srikkanth attributed challenges in T20s to factors like luck, contrasting it with the team’s consistent prowess in ODIs, regardless of the playing location.
