After India lost the WI T20I series, Venkatesh Prasad criticized the squad, saying “Hunger, fire is missing”


<p>After the Hardik Pandya-led team lost a five-match T20I series against the West Indies by a score of 2-3, former bowler Venkatesh Prasad criticized the Indian establishment, claiming that Team India lacked desire and fire and was living in delusion.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-126108″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-after-india-lost-the-wi-t20i-series-venkatesh-prasad-criticized-the-squad-saying-hunger-fire-is-missing-venkatesh-prasad-11zon.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com after india lost the wi t20i series venkatesh prasad criticized the squad saying hunger fire is missing venkatesh prasad 11zon” width=”1253″ height=”871″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-after-india-lost-the-wi-t20i-series-venkatesh-prasad-criticized-the-squad-saying-hunger-fire-is-missing-venkatesh-prasad-11zon.jpg 630w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-after-india-lost-the-wi-t20i-series-venkatesh-prasad-criticized-the-squad-saying-hunger-fire-is-missing-venkatesh-prasad-11zon-150×104.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1253px) 100vw, 1253px” title=”After India lost the WI T20I series, Venkatesh Prasad criticized the squad, saying "Hunger, fire is missing" 12″></p>
<p>By beating India by eight wickets in the fifth and final T20I on Sunday in Florida, the West Indies ended a six-year losing streak and successfully wrapped up the five-game series.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>India lost this T20I series against the Caribbean team for the first time since 2017. The Asian team suffered their first series loss in men’s T20Is in more than two years as a result of the setback, which also ended India’s run of 12 straight undefeated bilateral series.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>For a while now, India has been a very very average limited overs team. A West Indies team that missed out on qualifying for the T20 World Cup a few months ago has humiliated them. Ban had defeated us in the ODI series as well. I hope people reflect rather than saying foolish things #IndvWI.” Recently, Venkatesh, a fervent opponent of the group, made a post on X (formerly Twitter).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The West Indies’ series victory came at the right moment since, after losing out on last year’s T20 World Cup, they were unable to advance to the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in India.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>“West Indies didn’t only lose in 50 overs; they also missed out on the T20 World Cup in October and November of last year. It hurts to watch India do badly and have its shortcomings swept under the rug in the name of procedure. In response to a supporter who incorrectly claimed that West Indies were disqualified from the T20 World Cup last year and not the ODI World Cup this year, Prasad said, “That hunger, fire is lacking and we live in an illusion.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>When a fan asked Prasad what he thought of the Indian T20 skipper and management, the 54-year-old did not hesitate to blame them for the disappointing T20I series loss to the West Indies.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He also emphasized that a systematic method was used under former Indian captain MS Dhoni, but that it has since been abandoned. Prasad continued by criticizing the administration of the Indian squad for its inconsistent selection procedures.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>They must answer for the disaster since they are to blame. Process and similar terms are now abused. Guys, just say it now; MS meant it. There is no consistency in the selection, and too much randomness occurs, according to Prasad.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>India must develop its skill set. The skipper often seemed to be completely lost due to a lack of desire and passion. Batsmen cannot bowl, and bowlers cannot bat. It’s crucial to not hunt for yes men or become oblivious because someone is your favorite player, but rather to consider the bigger picture, the speaker said.</p>
