The Indian cricket team is currently in England and from August, Team India will play a five-Test series with England. In July, the Indian team will play three ODIs and three T20 matches with Sri Lanka. A separate team has been formed for this. Shikhar Dhawan has been made the captain of Team India touring Sri Lanka. Many new and young faces have also been given place in this team. At the same time, there are players who have played well in the matches of IPL 2020 and IPL 2021 so far. But did the Indian selectors make a mistake by making Shikhar Dhawan the new captain? Former Indian team selector Dilip Vengsakar has spoken about this. Speaking exclusively to News Nation, Dilip Vengsarkar said that the selectors may have made a mistake.
When Dilip Vengsarkar was asked, who is such a player in today’s date, who can captain Team India after Virat Kohli. On this Vengsarkar said that if our team is going on the tour of Sri Lanka right now, then maybe the next captain in the mind of the selectors will be Shikhar Dhawan. But when he was asked that Shikhar Dhawan is also old enough, he is also close to Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, on this Dilip Vengsarkar said that then it may be that Silex must have made a mistake. He said that when you send a team on such a tour, the future is thought of. Such occasions are an opportunity for the new captain and players to show their talent. If Shikhar Dhawan is not the captain of the future, then Silex must have made a mistake.
Along with this, when Dilip Vengsarkar was asked what was the biggest reason for Team India’s defeat in the WTC final. On this, Dilip Vengsarkar said that the Indian team did not get a chance to play a single practice match on the England tour. The team played the match among themselves and after that they went to the field to play the final. The Indian team should have got a chance to play at least one match with the county team. He added that if this series had been of three matches, then Team India could have done well in the second and third matches. Now for the five-match series with England, he said that Team India can win the series in this.
