Indian batting legend Sunil Gavaskar recently lambasted India’s senior players for reasoning their World Test Championship final 2023 loss due to lack of preparation.

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma has stated that a preparation time of 20-25 days would’ve been ideal for preparing for such a big game. The Indian team travelled to take part in the WTC final, which was just a week after the two-month-long IPL season of 2023. Meanwhile, ahead of WTC final 2021, the team landed in England 15 days ahead of the final.

Sunil Gavaskar has now reacted to Rohit’s statements as the veteran asked what kind of preparations was the Indian captain asking about since they went to the West Indies just eight days ahead of the tour.

“What kind of preparation are we talking about? Now they have gone to the West Indies. You have the example of the World Test Championship before you. Are you playing any matches? So, what is this talk about 20-25 days?” Gavaskar told The Indian Express.

Gavaskar further stated that the senior players are unwilling to go to tours early as they don’t have any fear about their place in the team.

“The truth is the main guys do not want to go early because they know that come what may, they will get selected. When you go early, they will talk about the workload. You call yourself the fittest team in the world or fitter than the earlier generations, then how do you break down so soon? How do you have a workload issue when you play a 20-overs game?” he said.

Team India are back on track after they picked up a convincing win over West Indies by an innings and 141 runs in the first Test in Roseau, Dominica. The second and final Test will commence on July 20. Following the Tests, India will face the West Indies in a three-match ODI series and the tour will end after the five-match T20I series.
