Mumbai, Nov 11 Former India captain and coach Anil Kumble has faulted the Indian team selection for the T20 World Cup 2022 exit, saying that the Indian team needs to play a brand of cricket where big-hitting batters contribute with the ball to balance the side. The Indian team crashed out of the T20 World Cup 2022 after Alex Hales and Jos Buttler forged a recordbreaking 170-run opening stand to hammer the Rohit Sharma-led side by 10 wickets in the semifinal in Adelaide on Thursday. India's timid batting approach invited criticism from all quarters as it led to a heavy defeat that spelled the ouster of the side from the premier ICC event."...what I see as something that certainly needs to be done is, how we keep talking about to bat. But I think in Indian cricket, you need batters to bowl too for the balance of the team," Kumble was quoted as saying by "That's exactly what England have. They had too many choices. They used Liam Livingstone. Moeen Ali has hardly bowled in this tournament. So those are the choices that you need." Kumble found fault with the selection of Indian teams, saying the current trend needs to change. "Unfortunately, even in the India A team that gets picked, it's mostly batters who don't bowl. It's important to create that brand of cricket and say that this is how the Indian team is going to do it and it should follow right through the system."I think the more and more you play T20s, it's going to be like this, where you just come and show your power. So that's exactly.
