The post-exit analysis of Indian cricket from the world cup, what went wrong for the team India? This query came to the front as Indian being one of the top favorites exited the world cup following their defeat to New Zealand. It’s a tough question ‘what went wrong’ and ‘what the team lacked’.To ascertain the problems a review meeting will be held, as the Chief of Committee of Administrators(CoA) Vinod Rai mentioned. The review meeting will be held in the presence of the chief coach Ravi Shastri, captain Virat Kohli and chief selector M.S.K. Prasad with the Committee of Administrators.
Upon querying, it is suggested about the possible rift between The Captain and his Co-captain. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma the two key players of Indian batting provides the foundation and basis of many Indian innings and India is heavily reliant on them. In the 2019 world cup, Rohit Sharma been the leading run-scorer, scoring 648 at 81.0 average with 5 five centuries and a half-century. Whereas Virat Kohli scored 443 runs with 5 half-centuries. Among them, they scored a thousand plus runs for their country in the world cup 2019.
The rumor of rift between the two came up from various sources and the causations were vague and weak. So, according to various media, what they found out, was the two, Kohli and Rohit Sharma don’t follow each other in the social media. It’s proves nothing. Also, in the past, they were both managed by the same firm, Cornerstone. Rohit parted his way from Cornerstone in 2016. Though, nothing substantial enough to believe there is a rift between them till now. But, this rumor in the media is keeping the Indian Cricket administration sleepless.
Another causation of rift is the preferential treatment of Virat Kohli’s confidents and that the team is divided into two one siding the captain Virat Kohli and another siding the vice-captain Rohit Sharma.It is alleged, according to ‘Dainik Jagoron’ the Chief coach Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli are taking unilateral decisions and they are treating others outside their realm negatively.
There are also debates about choosing Vijay Shankar over Ambati Rayudu, the selection of KL Rahul, who is quite inconsistent and about choosing Yuzvendra Chahal over Kuldeep Yadav.
According to a Board official and as per Wasim Jaffer’s tweet, its high time to split the captaincy, Rohit the shorter form and Virat Kohli remain as the captain of the longer version.
