Former Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene says India cannot be written off from the T20 World Cup.
With back-to-back losses, India’s chances of making the semi-finals are complicated but Jayawardene is not writing them off.
He said, “They still have an opportunity. Anything can happen. And if they sneak through to those semi-final spots they are a force to reckon with. But if they don’t have a successful T20 World Cup, there’s another one coming pretty soon in 2022.”
India have fallen behind in the race to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup, and according to former captain Jayawardene, they may have contributed to their own downfall a little bit by fiddling with a settled batting order.
Jayawardene found it odd that India would ask their players to adapt to new responsibilities in the middle of a World Cup especially against a team like New Zealand.
