Virat Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma believes Team India is not fully prepared for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.
The Men in Blue have won 12 consecutive T20Is, beating New Zealand, West Indies and Sri Lanka by a 3-0 margin in the last three series. The sub-continent team also won the last three games of the global event in the UAE.
During a discussion on India News, Rajkumar Sharma reflected on India’s readiness.
“I don’t think India is fully prepared as there are still many preparations left. Our best XI has not played together yet. Sometimes players are unfit, or someone has been rested. Sometimes Jasprit Bumrah is not playing, or Virat Kohli is rested. Rohit Sharma has come back after a long injury layoff.
He added that Rohit Sharma and the team management are yet to finalize their Playing XI.
“Till the time you have a settled core XI which you will play in the opening game of the ICC T20 World Cup, you are still experimenting. Once you play your real XI, then only you will come to know about the shortcomings and the improvement areas.”
