India’s chances to clinch the ICC title might dwindle if they fall short in the current World Cup, warns former coach Ravi Shastri.
Speaking on the Club Prairie Fire podcast, Shastri emphasizes that the current squad, at its peak, presents India’s best opportunity to break the ICC title drought. He suggests that if they miss this chance, it could be a wait of three more World Cups.
Shastri praises India’s formidable bowling attack, hailing them as the best in 50 years. The pace trio of Bumrah, Shami, and Siraj, along with spinners Jadeja and Yadav, has been instrumental. Their consistent performances, focused on hitting the right areas, have impressed Shastri.
He highlighted the rarity of short balls, strategically used as surprise weapons. Overall, he deems this bowling unit extraordinary, attributing its success to years of playing together and impeccable seam positions.
