Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul lacked common sense against Pakistan – Dilip Doshi

Former Indian cricketer Dilip Doshi has come down heavily on Indian players. He slammed the selectors for picking Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar on reputation. The Men in Blue were thrashed by Pakistan in the opening match of the ICC T20 World Cup. The defeat by 10 wickets came after India failed in all the departments of the game.

The 73-year old also added that the top order has struggled on a regular basis against left-arm pacers.

Doshi also opined that apart from Virat Kohli, the other players had faulty technique. He also reckoned that the Indian batters lacked common sense.

“We were completely outplayed by Pakistan. They looked a far better side on that particular day. We have to understand why we weren’t effective. Our top-order batters have struggled regularly against left-arm pacers bowling over the wicket over the past few years. The techniques of our batters, barring Virat, were faulty. I would attribute the failure to a lack of application and common sense on the part of our batters,” said Dilip Doshi in a chat with Sportskeeda.
