It’s been 10 years since India has won an ICC title, recently, the team also lost the ICC World Test Championship final against Australia, but former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly has been quick to comment on the team’s future, especially in Test cricket, and ask people not to jump to conclusions. While India fought back on the third and fourth days at The Oval after trailing heavily on the first two days, they were dismissed in the first session of the final day and lost the match by 209 runs.
Former Skipper shows faith in team
Ganguly still has faith in the Indian team and believes that it will surely bounce back better and stronger. He said, “No matter what is the outcome of the match, India will always have a flourishing pipeline of players who are ready to take the team forward in test cricket. Don’t jump to conclusions with just one defeat, India will always have brilliance, and I don’t think it is time to look beyond Virat or Pujara, Virat is just 34”.
He further said, “India has ample reserves of many players who showed many significant performances. If we stick to Test cricket, then I don’t consider IPL performances. There are many great players in domestic cricket, and we will only know when you give them a chance. Be it Jaiswal, Patidar, Easwaran, Shubman Gill is young, Gaikwad, and I hope Hardik Pandya is listening, I want to see him playing Test cricket, especially in these conditions”.
