The Indian cricket team registered an amazing series win in the One Day Internationals (ODIs) against England. This victory resulted in a clean sweep for the hosts across all three formats of the game. Moreover, Virat Kohli’s men had earlier registered historic series wins against Australia in T20Is and Tests in their home ground.
Former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar also hailed the performance of ‘Men in Blue’. Gavaskar reckoned that Kohli has got a terrific side to captain with match-winners at all spots.
“I’ve always said that a captain is always as good as the team and he’s got a terrific team under him. He has got a couple of terrific opening batsmen; the middle order is very good. He’s got a bowling attack that has plenty of variety. He has got an outstanding fielding unit. He’s got a wicketkeeper who is very good and who can come in down the order to bat and pummel the bowling along,” Gavaskar told Star Sports.
‘India has some fabulous match-winners’: Gavaskar
He leapt praises for the team balance and went on to say that in this case, you will win more matches than lose. The legendary cricketer also mentioned that India’s marvellous match-winners with the bat and with the ball have proved themselves in the team’s results.
“So, the full balance of the team has been fantastic. And when you have something like that, you will win more matches than lose. And that is exactly what’s happening. Not everybody will be able to play to their potential,” Gavaskar explained.
“In a game of cricket, not XI players will be successful but if four players are successful – say two from bowling and as many from batting – then you are going to win more matches than losing. India has some fabulous match-winners with the bat and with the ball and that is reflecting in the results,” he added.
