Proper planning will help India win ICC tournaments: ex-pacer Irfan Pathan
Mumbai/UNI: Former Indian bowler and all-rounder Irfan Pathan feels that team India needs proper panning to win ICC Tournaments.
While speaking on Star Sports show Cricket Connected Pathan said, "I think we need to make sure that we have better planning going into the ICC trophies, going into the World Cup. If we have better planning we have all the resources to be a champion.”
Pathan said India struggled to get a proper playing XI before the ODI World Cup last year as the team made a semifinal exit, losing to New Zealand.
"The only thing lacking, is that we did not have a number four batsmen just before the World Cup as well. We were struggling with having a proper eleven," he said.
“If you look at the recent 2019 tournament, it was bad planning, I think the team can do better planning. Look, we have resources we have players, we have fitness, we have everything to be a world champion," said Pathan who was in the Indian squad that won 2007 World T20 in South Africa.
