The Indian cricket fans on Twitter have lashed out at the BCCI for organizing bilateral series against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh every year.
India, who topped the Group 2 Points table in the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup 2022, crashed out of the semi-finals. They failed to defend their total of 168 against England. In addition, the bowlers could not take a single wicket and India faced a humiliating defeat.
Since then, the fans want the Rohit Sharma-led side to revamp their strategy for the ICC T20 events and give chances to youngsters performing well in the IPL.
After the euphoria of the T20 WC is over, the attention has been switched to the bilateral tournaments of the Indian team. The fans think the Men in Blue often have a terrific track record in the bilateral series, but often fail to make it count in World Cups.
Moreover, playing with lower-ranked teams are not helping India’s cause ahead of the big tournaments. Furthermore, the fans want the team to prepare well for the ODI World Cup scheduled next year in October-November.
