Ravi Shastri, whose tenure as Team India’s head coach will end after today’s match against Namibia in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup, has revealed the reasons behind the Men in Blue’s below-par display in the UAE.
He didn’t give any excuse and was honest in his analysis of the facts which led to the downfall of the Virat Kohli-led team.
According to him, the bio-bubble fatigue and no gap between the IPL and the T20 World Cup scripted India’s exit from the Super 12 stage.
“I don’t want to make any excuse but the players have been living in bio-bubbles for the last six months. They are human beings and not machines. Even there should have been a gap between the IPL and the T20 World Cup,” he said.
He urged all the national cricket boards and the ICC to plan the future schedule in a proper way.
“Not only the BCCI but all the cricket boards and the ICC will have to think about the schedules considering the bio-bubble restrictions. There are chances players will refuse to play because of mental fatigue,” he added.
