CricketIndia repeating same mistake that Pakistan cricket did in 90's: Former Pakistan captain

Srinagar: Former Pakistan cricket team captain Rashid Latif has said that India is repeating the same mistakes that Pakistan cricket did in 90’s.

BCCI has been resting seniors and making new captain’s for almost every other series recently. They have been resting Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah amount others. In Sharma’s BCCI made KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant etc captain for the different series.

Former Pakistan wicketkeeper Rashid Latif believes that these frequent rotations might backfire on India as they did on Pakistan in the 90s.

“Everyone talks about backup. But they have now produced seven backup captains in the past year! This is the first time I’m seeing this in India’s history. Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah, they are repeating the same mistake as Pakistan’s in the 1990s,” Rashid said in a video on his YouTube channel.

“They haven’t found a solid opener, nor do they have a stable middle-order. They just want a new captain. No captain is playing consistently for them. KL Rahul is unfit now; Rohit was unfit before. Virat is mentally unfit. So, they will have to think about it. They are changing so many captains.. they need a leader like Sourav Ganguly, MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli,” he added.
