The Indian team lost the first match by 66 runs and the second match by 51 runs. After two consecutive big defeats, current captain Virat Kohli has come under severe criticism.
Former Indian cricket team veteran opener Gautam Gambhir even went on to say that he does not understand such captaincy at all.
Talking to Cricinfo, Gautam Gambhir has criticized Virat Kohli’s strategy a lot. In fact, the most dangerous bowler to take wickets in Powerplay was Jasprit Bumrah only two overs.
Gautam Gambhir said that we are talking of taking wickets continuously. But if you will not give opportunity to your most important bowler then how can one expect a wicket.
The former cricketer of the Indian team said that if I say honestly, I cannot understand such captaincy.
He said that we are constantly talking about taking as many wickets as possible to break the strong batting order of the Australian team.
Nevertheless, you are bowling only two overs in the beginning with your most important bowler. They are usually 4-3-3 spells in ODI cricket history.
A three-over spell is also considered better. A maximum of 4 overs are made by any bowler with a spell.
Former India veteran and legendary batsman Gautam Gambhir said that if you stop after bowling only two overs from your star and most reliable fast bowler.
So I cannot understand any captaincy and I might not understand that captain either. Gautam Gambhir said that it is not a T20 cricket that you are bowling your trump aces for just two overs during the powerplay.
He said that India lost because the captain was very bad. Let us tell you that in the second match against Australia, a very impressive innings of 89 runs was played. But he failed to win his team.
