Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batter Kamran Akmal has launched a scathing attack on the Indian team’s performance following their defeat to West Indies in the first T20I.

In a scathing critique of the Indian team’s performance, former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batter, Kamran Akmal, minced no words as he voiced his disapproval following India’s defeat in the first T20I against West Indies at Tarouba, Trinidad on Thursday. The hosts delivered an unexpected blow to the tourists, securing a gripping victory by a mere four runs after India struggled in pursuit of a seemingly manageable 150-run target.

Despite a promising start, with the scoreboard reading a comfortable 77 for 3 in the 11th over, courtesy of debutant Tilak Varma’s commendable contribution of 39 runs and Suryakumar Yadav’s valuable 21, India’s fortunes soon took a dismal turn. The team lost six crucial wickets for a meager 68 runs, leaving fans and experts baffled by the dramatic collapse.

Speaking candidly about the Indian team’s performance, Kamran Akmal attributed the defeat to what he perceived as an “overconfident” approach during the chase. While the team’s batting prowess seemed to be in control initially, the lack of resilience in the middle-order became evident as they stumbled under pressure, eventually surrendering the contest to the West Indies.

The result has sent shockwaves through the cricketing world, with fans and experts alike analyzing the repercussions of this early setback for India in the T20I series against a determined West Indies side.

As the tour progresses, it remains to be seen how the Indian team will respond to this criticism and whether they can bounce back in the forthcoming matches. For now, the spotlight is on the team’s introspection and ability to address the issues raised by Kamran Akmal and other observers, as they seek to regain their winning momentum in this fiercely contested series.
