"If I had been a part of the team, Virat would have won 3 World Cups"- Ex-World Cup-winning Indian pacer makes huge claim
The Indian team has been phenominal when it comes to the bilateral series in the last 6-7 years. But when it is about the ICC events, the performance graph is totally opposite. Many former cricketers and cricket analysts have suggested and pointed out many things in this matter.
But the fact is that the ICC trophy drought is increasing every year. That was the reason that Virat Kohli was sacked from the captaincy role. However, former Indian speedster S Sreesanth, who was an integral part of the 2007 T20 World Cup triumph, has come up with a totally different idea.
During a discussion on the reason that India has not won any ICC tournament since 2011 on a show called "CricChat" on the ShareChat Audio Chatroom, he said that Virat Kohli will do something incredible in the near future. The former pacer said, "If I would have been a part of the team under Virat’s captaincy, India would have won the World Cup in 2015, 2019 & 2021."
The 39-year-old also remembered the 2011 World Cup winning moment. He said that it was very emotional for the entire team, but they played it for Sachin Tendulkar. Sreesanth, who made waves with his yorkers throughout his cricket career despite coming from a small area, described how he learned the skill.
Furthermore, he stated that it is very important for any bowler to visualise the situation while playing, irrespective of the region. He also recalled the training he had received from his coach. Sreesanth said that his coach taught him to bowl a yorker with a tennis ball and suggested he practise more and more to get perfect.
Sreesanth also talked about his life-threatening injuries and the dark times when he wasn't sure if he'd ever be able to play again during the session. He spoke about Kerala's dearth of positive role models and the need for advice in a variety of areas during his journey.
