Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq seems highly impressed with Team India’s conduct in the first One Day International of the three-match series against England in Pune. India scripted a stunning victory in the game by 66 runs courtesy of two debutants namely Krunal Pandya and Prasidh Krishna. This is not the first time that the young or inexperienced lads have shined for Men in Blue as in recent past we have seen many new players coming in and winning games for the team.
Speaking about the same, Inzamam reckoned that since the Australia tour he has been witnessing youngsters coming in the Indian side and giving outstanding performances. The veteran believes that it clearly shows the standards of Indian cricket and also keeps the senior players on their toes as they have to continuously perform to uphold their position in the Playing XI.
“I think India have set up some sort of machine to manufacture new players. There were two debutants even today (Prasidh Krishna and Krunal Pandya). This gives a clear signal to the senior cricketers that you have to perform well to stay on the side.
“I’m noticing since the Australia series that in every match or format, a youngster turns up and gives outstanding performance. Seniors have their role but when juniors perform like this then it speaks a lot about the side. India’s performance has been this good in the last six months because of their youngsters,” Inzamam-ul-Haq said in his YouTube channel.
India are making it look easy against opposition like England: Inzamam-ul-Haq
The right-arm quick Prasidh Krishna had produced a dazzling performance against England in the first ODI as despite going for runs in the first few overs, he made a memorable comeback to scalp two prized wickets of Jason Roy and Ben Stokes followed by two more wickets of Sam Billings and Tom Curran.
The former skipper believes that the youngster was brilliant in his debut game and India made it look easy to play against a side like England. “When India needed wickets, this young boy Krishna, who was playing his first match picked up four wickets. Again, I’d say that India has found a machine to produce players for every format.
“The kind of cricket, the quality of cricket that India are playing nowadays, they are making it look easy against opposition like England. It was looking like it’ll be tough for India after England’s opening partnership but later on, Indian bowlers didn’t allow them the space to breathe,” Inzamam said.
