Captain of India Virat Kohli on Wednesday, he said he could attract “the right people with the right mindset to perform” in the test country, just like their white ball, where they have multiple players ready to take responsibility at the highest level.
After his country lost the WTC final, the Indian captain did not name anyone, but expressed dissatisfaction with some players who did not show enough intention to score tracks that put pressure on the equipment.
Cheteshwar Pujara scored 8 rebounds from 54 balls in the first inning and consumed 35 balls for his first run. He then succeeded with only 15 runs of 80 balls in the second essay.
“We will continue to re-evaluate and continue to talk about what is needed to strengthen our country and not follow or fall victim to certain patterns,” Collie told a post-match virtual press conference.
“We won’t wait about a year and we have to plan ahead. If you see our team with white balls now, we have great depth and the boys are ready and confident. The same should be done with Test Cricket.
“You need to re-evaluate and reschedule and understand what dynamics are working for the team and how we can be fearless. Get the right people who have the right mindset to perform,” the overhaul captain hinted.
He also talks about finding ways to score runs. India scored just 217 in the first inning and all were out for 170 in the second effort.
“We definitely need to develop better plans to understand the results. We need to stay in line with the momentum of the game and not let the game get too far away. I don’t think there are any technical difficulties as such.
“It’s all about awareness of the game and more courage in putting bowling under pressure and not allowing them to bowl in such areas for longer periods of time, unless it’s absolutely cloudy and the balls are swinging everywhere, as happened on day 1. “
“The effort will be to try to win runs and not worry about going out in testing conditions. This is the way you can put the opposition under pressure, otherwise you stand there hoping you won’t get away and not you are optimistic enough. You have to take calculated risks against a quality bowling attack like NZ. “
