Indian media is responsible for Men in Blue’s poor performance in ICC T20 World Cup – Former player

Former Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal feels Indian media is behind Men in Blue’s poor performance in the ICC T20 World Cup. He also opined that the Indian media had also become arrogant in their quest to see the Virat Kohli-led team win the global event.

India have lost to Pakistan and New Zealand in the event and have been lambasted for their performance.

Despite a 66-run victory over Afghanistan, Virat Kohli and Co. are on the verge of an early exit from the tournament. “India were very overconfident, their media was overconfident. Their media had even decided on the finalists.”

Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets, while New Zealand won the game by 8 wickets against Virat Kohli’s team.

Meanwhile, Ajmal supported Bumrah who spoke about the fatigue caused by the bio-secure bubble. “More than cricket, the bio-secure bubble is tough. You can’t do much by staying in a hotel room alone for six months. Sportspersons need some outings. Although watching cricket is easy, it takes a lot out of the players out there; hence, they need relaxation. Sportspersons have to go out and relax to refresh themselves but that can’t happen currently.”
