India’s Key Lessons from Previous Asia Cup Campaigns

asia cup

In the previous Asia Cup campaign, India was not able to reach even till the finals of the tournament. That was certainly not good for a team that won consecutive Asia Cup titles before that. This year if India has to win the Asia cup, then they must learn from the mistake of the previous year.

Important lessons to learn from the previous year’s Asia Cup:

 To learn the lessons, it is necessary to find the reason behind losing the game. For that, you can go through the information that is provided below. That is going to help in decoding the weaknesses and working on strengths.

The strategy of the team didn’t work.

 There were some experiments that were made by the team. In case those experiments would have worked, then the critics would have hailed the victory. But because of the reason it didn’t work, so they were being criticized.

Selecting Deepak Hooda over Dinesh Karthik was certainly not the right choice. The experience of Dinesh Karthik would have been much more handy.

Batting was too aggressive

 Under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, India made the plan of aggressive batting. That, unfortunately, led to their fall. India was not able to reach the total in any of the matches in the tournament. Even though they reached close to the score of 200 once, by scoring 192.

 The underperformance of middle and lower order

 There is no doubt that the middle and the lower order could not make the contribution when it was truly required. It is necessary for the middle order to perform well consistently, or else the team will not be able to reach a good total.

So, now you know the three main reasons behind the poor performance of team India in the last Asia Cup. Once they fix these issues, then they are certainly going to win the cup.
