Former player took a jibe after India’s defeat, said – ‘Still playing the old-fashioned powerplay’

T20 World Cup 2022: India lost to the Jos Buttler-led side by ten wickets in the second semi-final of the T20 World Cup at the Adelaide Oval at the hands of England. After this, former captain Nasir Hussain criticized that the Indian team is playing old-fashioned power-play cricket. Despite a good batting line-up, India’s persistent problem of not getting off to a good start in the tournament again disappointed them, when they made just 38/1 in the powerplay, much worse than England’s 63/0. Buttler (80 not out) and Alex Hales (86 not out) were at the crease and chased down 168/6 with four overs to spare.

Hussain said on Sky Sports, “When you look at England’s first six overs, India made a big mistake. Hales and Buttler played the way they were playing and India is still playing powerplay cricket of the past. “

Former captain Michael Atherton agreed with Hussain’s views and also criticized India’s bowling, which did not stop England from playing the final match against Pakistan in Melbourne on Sunday. Former England captain Eoin Morgan praised Butler’s team for defeating India. “England made a very good Indian team in general and that’s very difficult to do. It involves planning and implementing well,” he said.

“Against big players like Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli, he got them out and made them an average team. It looked like two different teams in a big match. Alex Hales and Jos Buttler batted brilliantly. K. I’m so happy for the team, for Jose and for coach Matthew Mott. Now Sunday is a big match for the occasion.”
