Sunil Gavaskar told the biggest weakness of Team India
Kumar, Chahal and Harshal scored 143 runs in 68 balls in the first T20.
India’s second T20 match will be played in Nagpur this evening.
New Delhi: In the first T20 match between India and Australia on Wednesday, the Australian team won by four wickets. A big target given by India was achieved by the visiting team in 19.2 overs. KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya scored excellent fifties for India. Despite this, the Indian team failed to win. Earlier in the Asia Cup also, India had to face defeat against Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Former captain Sunil Gavaskar has told the biggest weakness of the team after India’s loss in consecutive major matches.
Talking about sports, Gavaskar said, ‘Defending the score has been a problem for India for the last several years. This is India’s weakness. This is not a new problem. If Team India has to win in further matches, then this problem will have to be solved. If there are Bumrah in the team then it seems possible, but in his absence it becomes difficult to defend.

Gavaskar further said, ‘Bumrah is an important player for Team India. He may or may not play in Nagpur, but when he is in the team, of course Team India is successful in defending. At this time India does not have the bowler it needs between 16 to 20 overs.
Let us tell you that in the first T20 match, fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar conceded 52 runs in 4 overs against Australia. At the same time, Harshal Patel, who was returning after injury, spent 49 runs in 4 overs. Apart from this, off-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal also conceded 42 runs in 3.2 overs. In the first T20 match, the bowling and fielding of the Indian team was the reason for the defeat.
