Sydney: Former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif believes Team India’s poor fielding quality will reduce their chances of winning next year’s T20 World Cup.
In the third T-20 match on Tuesday, Australia scored 186 runs behind Matthew Wade and Glenn Maxwell. However, another factor behind Australia’s huge numbers is India’s sloppy fielding and abandoned catches.
Kaif expressed disappointment at the redefinition of agility on the cricket field and said Men in Blue could lose crucial matches in the mega event if they did the same.

“So many abandoned catches and misfields can’t be part of the game.
Former India batsmen have said it would be tough for young bowlers to get any help from fielders. Kaif recalled his playing days and said he would train extra hours if fielders mis-fielded during the match.

“This Indian team has young bowlers, so when the catch is dropped, the poor go back to the run-up. The bowler doesn’t say anything but thinks it’s part of the game. But it’s not,” Kaif said.
“If we abandon Ajit Agarkar, Srinath, or Zaheer Khan’s bowling, even if they look at the fielder, you have to practice for an extra two hours the next day,” he said.
Australia defeated India by 12 runs in the third T20. If India had already won the three-match T20I series after winning the first two matches, Australia would have won the last game to avoid whitewash.

India will now be horn in a four-match Test series against Australia on December 17. The first match will be a day-night affair and Kohli will return home after the first Test because he has been granted paternity leave. BCCI.
Availability for the Test series is also not clear as Rohit’s fitness will be re-evaluated at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore on December 11.
