In the aftermath of consecutive T20I setbacks against the West Indies, Hardik Pandya and the Indian squad face rising scrutiny from critics.

In the ongoing T20I series against the West Indies, Indian captain Hardik Pandya’s leadership is under the magnifying glass. Despite entering the series with a notable leadership reputation, the team’s initial 0-2 trail has put a dent in his credentials. Questions were raised post the 2nd T20I, especially concerning his choices regarding Yuzvendra Chahal, one of India’s standout bowlers.

Even as Chahal delivered a compelling performance, Pandya chose to sideline him for his crucial 4th over, a move that left many in the cricket community puzzled.

Venkatesh Prasad, a former Indian cricketer and an outspoken critic of the team, took to X (previously Twitter) to share his views. “It’s disheartening. We cannot gloss over our T20I record post the 2007 T20 World Cup. The zeal to clinch the trophy should be palpable,” said Prasad, addressing India’s less than stellar T20I performances.

He further elaborated, “After Chahal’s commendable feat of two wickets in his 16th, during his third over, it was bewildering not to see him back in action, especially when the West Indies’ tail-enders seemed comfortable against the pace.”

The post-match session saw Pandya attributing the defeat primarily to the batsmen. With three matches left, there’s mounting pressure on the skipper to steer the ship in the right direction.
