Former Team India all-rounder and current J&K cricket team mentor Irfan Pathan has said that India lacked stability and proper planning during 2019 World Cup which resulted into their knockout.
Pathan said that the lack of a proper No. 4 batsman was one of the prime reasons behind India’s failed campaign.
“If you look at the recent 2019 tournament, it was bad planning, I think the team can do better planning. Look, we have resources, we have players, we have fitness, we have everything to be a world champion. The only thing lacking is that we did not have a No.4 batsman just before the World Cup as well,” Irfan Pathan said on the Cricket Connected Show on Star Sports.
“We were struggling with having a proper eleven. I think we need to make sure that we have better planning going into the ICC trophies, going into the World Cup. If we have better planning, we have all the resources to be a champion,” Pathan added.
