Srinagar: Former Team India pacer and coach Venkatesh Prasad has launched all out attack on Team India after it suffered ODI defeat against West Indies on Saturday.
Under the leadership of head coach Rahul Dravid and skipper Rohit, India have so far failed to end its trophy drought in ICC events. A day after India’s stunning defeat to the West Indies in the 2nd ODI, ex-cricketer Venkatesh Prasad termed Team India an ordinary side.
“Test cricket aside, India has been very ordinary in the other two formats for quite sometime now. Lost odi series against ban, SA and Aus. Poor in the last two T20 World Cups. Neither are we an exciting team like England nor brutal like how the Aussies used to be,” Prasad Tweeted.
“Despite the money and power, we have become used to celebrating mediocrity and are far from how champion sides are. Every team plays to win and so does India but their approach and attitude is also a factor for underperformance over a period of time,” He added.
India had opted to rest skipper Rohit Sharma and ex-captain Virat Kohli in the 2nd ODI against the West Indies.
Hardik Pandya-led Team India managed to score 181 in 40.5 overs. The West Indies wrapped up the contest in 36.4 overs as India lost the 2nd ODI by six wickets at Kensington Oval.
