There has been a stir after a crushing eight-wicket defeat at the hands of New Zealand in the final of the World Test Championship. The giants are telling the reason for this defeat in their own way. Meanwhile, Sachin Tendulkar, who is called the God of Cricket, has also spoken. Sachin Tendulkar has said that the Indian team management made a mistake in the bowling combination in New Zealand’s second innings in the World Test Championship (WTC) final, and it cost him less to bowl to Ravindra Jadeja. Sachin Tendulkar, who holds the record for most runs in Tests and ODIs, said on his YouTube channel that the spinners never came into play due to lack of sunshine in the first few days. Especially left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja who bowled only 7.2 overs in the first innings. Ravindra Jadeja, however, bowled only eight overs in the second innings on the sixth day when the sun came out.
Sachin Tendulkar said that look when you play with five bowlers, it is impossible that all five bowlers get the same number of overs. It doesn’t work that way. You have to take into account the position of the pitch, the position of the overhead, the help from the wind. Accordingly you decide. Sachin Tendulkar said he understood the rationale behind Ravichandran Ashwin bowling more overs (15-5-28-2) than Jadeja (7.2-2-20-1) in the first innings, as New Zealand’s left-hander There were footmarks made by the speed of. The bowlers and the opposition had left-handed batsmen. He called Ravindra Jadeja unlucky in the second innings. Sachin Tendulkar, the only player to score 100 international hundreds, said the Southampton pitch is suited to fast bowlers and not spinners. Sachin Tendulkar said that if people did not get equal opportunity, it was because the fast bowlers were getting help. There are pitches for spinners, there are pitches for fast bowlers. So you have to understand the circumstances. India played with two spinners and three pacers, while New Zealand launched an all-round pace attack. Colin de Grandhomme, a seam-bowling all-rounder, acted as the fifth bowler. India lost the WTC final by eight wickets.
