Indian cricket team has done significantly well in the limited-overs in the recent past but the only thing which came under scrutiny is their fielding. The young side faltered on regular occasions during the T20I series against New Zealand and also during the 1st ODI game against New Zealand.
The standards of the Indian fielding have gone down slightly post World Cup 2019. India’s fielding coach R Sridhar opened up about India’s current performance in the fielding and said that this is one of the aspects that the team should improve on. Sridhar feels that Virat Kohli, with his incredible intensity and fielding skills, sets the example for the youngsters. Virat pulled off a brilliant run-out of Henry Nicholls when he was batting on 78.
"If you see Virat's run-out of Nicholls the other day, it was purely speed which gave him the edge over the batter. An absolute pleasure to watch. The kind of intensity he brings to the field - I always tell the younger boys that he's the ready-made template for you to just copy him, watch him see what he does," Sridhar said
"The buck doesn't stop inside the ground. There are a lot of things to be done outside the ground for a player to be playing at the intensity of Virat Kohli"- India’s fielding coach concluded.
