India had lost the final ODI game against England by 8 wickets a few days back and in the process they also lost the series 2-1, having led the series at one point as they won the first game.
Cricket news: These players failed to create any impact throughout the England ODI series
The series defeat should serve as a wakeup call for the Indian management and selectors as they need to fix the unstable the middle order before the next year’s World Cup.
In recent times many players have been tested in the middle order batting lineup, but none has proved their worth and cemented their place, hence the future decisions should be taken wisely.
Another concern for the team would be the ineffectiveness of the fast bowlers. Although the current pace battery is considered as one of the best, yet they looked blunt in front of the aggressive English batsmen.
Moreover in the absence of regular pacers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah, the other pace bowlers failed to make an impression.
There will surely be some axing in the Indian squad after this defeat, as the management would like to try as many players as possible before the World Cup commences.
We look at the 3 Indian players who might get dropped after the England ODI series defeat:
3. Siddharth Kaul
There was so much expectations with Kaul because of his impressive performances in the domestic level as well as his impressive variations during the last couple of season of Indian Premier League (IPL).
However Kaul could not continue his good form in international level as he went wicket-less in the two matches he played.
He was brought in the squad as a death overs specialist, but failed to create any impact as he bowled a lot of loose deliveries and leaked many runs. With tough competition ahead, Kaul have to wait for some time to get another chance.
