IND vs AUS 2022: “India’s biggest mistake was dropping three catches”

Saba Karim has questioned the line-up of the Indian cricket team after the Men in Blue lost three critical catches in the first T20I against Australia in Mohali on Tuesday (20 September).

The former selector said the opposing batsmen had maximized their opportunities after India’s big mistakes on the field.

He added that the bowling unit lacked discipline. So they failed to defend 208 runs against Australia, the T20 world champions.

India is the first team to fail to defend 200+ goals more than once in home T20Is of the same year. Both contest the first game of their last two home series. V SA in Delhi V AUS in Mohali#INDvAUS

In a speech on India News, Karim said:

“Yuzvendra Chahal didn’t bowl well and bowled flat on a flat wicket. We need bowlers who bowl right and have the right length, at least York length. Overall, India’s biggest mistake was dropping three catches and as a result their set batters took advantage.”

He continued:

“Another thing is that when defending a target, we need to roll with discipline in terms of length and direction, which we lacked.”

‘Our fieldwork and catch were bleak’ – Saba Karim wants India to improve fieldwork

Karim reiterated that the main reason for the hosts’ defeat to Australia in Tuesday’s Mohali was the main reason for losing catches on a regular basis. He said:

“Our ground field and catching was dismal. Every run counts; If Axar Patel had caught Cameron Green, Australia would not have been able to hunt down the big target. Steve Smith also added a few runs after the catch drop.”

While Axar Patel dropped Australian opener Cameron Green when he batted 42 (19) in the eighth over, KL Rahul failed to hold a catch from Steve Smith, who batted 18 (13) in the ninth over.

Harshal Patel also failed to grab Matthew Wade’s catch from his own bowling in the 17th over when the southpaw hit on 23 (14).

After 209 runs, the Australian trio finished with 61 (31), 35 (24) and 45* (24) respectively. In total, they added 60 more runs to Australia’s scorecard, taking the game away from the Men in Blue.
