Failing to win the World Cup with one or two players: Sourav Ganguly – Ganguly Speaks

Kolkata ∙ BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has openly stated that he cannot win the Twenty20 World Cup with one or two players. Ganguly pointed out that the title can only be won if every player in the team gives their best and fights as a team. With this year’s Twenty20 World Cup scheduled to be held in Australia from October 16, Ganguly reminded that just one or two players cannot try to win the World Cup.

Exactly one month later, on October 23, India’s first match in the World Cup will be against Pakistan. India lost to Pakistan in the last World Cup for the first time ever in the history of World Cups. So, this time India is under more pressure than usual when facing Pakistan. Although they defeated Pakistan in the first match of the last Asia Cup as well, losing to Pakistan in the Super Four stage was the reason for India’s elimination.

In this situation, Ganguly said that India cannot win the World Cup if only one or two players think. Ganguly also revealed that the BCCI has held discussions with coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma about the performance of the players in recent tournaments played by India.

“It is true that Indian players did not perform well in last year’s Twenty20 World Cup and this year’s Asia Cup. In these two tournaments, the team’s performance was not up to expectations and the coach and captain spoke to them. The hope is that the team will perform better this time,” said Ganguly.

“I am sure Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma will pay special attention to the team’s performance. I will also be there to watch the match against Australia in Nagpur on Friday. I believe India will win there’ – said Ganguly.

Ganguly also said that India can have hope in the Twenty20 World Cup starting next month only if they play together as a team.

The Indian team will arrive in Australia two to two and a half weeks before the World Cup. There the final training will be done and the teams will play against each other. A couple of warm-up games are also played’ – explained Ganguly.

“If the team’s performance is to improve in the World Cup, everyone should ensure a good performance. Along with Kohli, Rohit, Rahul, Pandya, Suryakumar and others, the bowling department should also ensure their own contribution. We cannot win the World Cup just because one or two players performed well. “Every player has to perform well,” Ganguly pointed out.

“Winning and losing is part of the game. It is true that India has lost a few games recently. But Rohit Sharma’s success rate as a captain in Twenty20 international is almost 82 percent. As a captain, Rohit has lost very few games’ – Ganguly pointed out.
