India were the favourites for the 2019 world cup, But creating uncertainty in the playing groups India Sabotage their chances, Said former Sunrises Hyderabad Coach Tom Moody.
Exactly one year ago on this day India was knocked out of the world cup 2019 after losing to New Zealand in the first semifinal due to the Batting failure. The Men in Blue endured a heartbreaking moment during that time. Talking to Cricbuzz, Moody spoke about the challenges India had to face off.
“When you have got too many players to choose from, you can cloud your thinking and philosophy on how you want to plan, how you feel you need to play to win a particular tournament. The best example according to me was their World Cup campaign in England,” Moody said.”
During the chat with Harsha Bhogle Moody said, “If anything, when you come into a major tournament, that’s when we crystalise people’s thought and doesn’t get influenced by what I call white noise…because you know exactly what path you are on, you know exactly what you need to be doing, you just need to consistent with that because players also sense the uncertainty when those things are happening,”
In that match the debate was all about the batting line up, ” Who will go When will go” but the door closed with some controversial circumstances.
Hence, Virat Kohli led Indian team played exceptionally well through out the tournament.
The former Australian thinks that India has got more talent by a long stretch than any country playing our game, but sometimes that can be a burden.
“It seems that India was ready to play the tournament 12 months ago but to the lead up to the actual start of the tournament did their very best to sabotage their hopes of winning that tournament by changing batting orders, changing personnel within the batting order, creating uncertainty amongst the whole playing group,” said Tom Moody.
