- Jadeja says that Virat Kohli’s words are disappointing
- The crucial game between India and New Zealand will be played on October 31
- Pakistan leads the pack with India and New Zealand
Former India captain Ajay Jadeja has spoken out against a reference to India captain Virat Kohli ahead of their match against New Zealand on October 31. In a press conference following the defeat against Pakistan, Kohli referred to the collapse of India. But Jadeja’s response was that Kohli’s words were disappointing.
“India was already behind Pakistan in the first two fields,” Kohli said. Jadeja clarified that the captain should not have said such a thing. It is unfortunate that such a thought occurred when a player like Virat Kohli was in the fold. The game did not end there. Jadeja said that Kohli’s words were a clear indication of the Indian team’s approach.
With the defeat to Pakistan in the first match, the second match will be crucial for India. It will not be easy for India to reach the semi-finals if they lose to New Zealand, as the other three teams in the group are weak. India’s record against New Zealand in the World Cup is not optimistic. Therefore, India can advance in the tournament only if the players are out of 100 percent. Pakistan, who have won both of their Group Two matches, are currently in first place.
