Former India National Cricket Team player Ajay Jadeja has said that the India National Cricket Team captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid should be consistent with their statements in front of the media.

In the recently concluded Asia Cup 2022, Rohit Sharma and Co. failed to qualify for the final after facing back-to-back defeats against Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Super 4 stage and questions were raised over India’s consistent experimentations with the playing XI. Speaking after the loss against Sri Lanka, skipper Rohit asserted that they are still trying to “find answers” over the team combination.

Meanwhile, Jadeja said that India will have to avoid chopping and changing after every result to get stability. He added that the captain and the coach having coordination when speaking in front of the media is very important.

“You have to continue the process. If you keep chopping and changing after every result, the confusion will be there, which is quite an old thing with Indian cricket. That can be avoided. I know there will be coordination between the captain and coach, but it’s important to have that even in front of the press,” Jadeja said on Cricbuzz.

“It isn’t as if we weren’t the captain or we didn’t do press conferences. Sometimes, you have to say certain things in a press conference because they might be important. But your team knows why exactly it was said. Your internal conversations with the team should be strong, and there should be no need to justify those things in front of the press.”

Jadeja also said that wins and losses are part of the game, but there shouldn’t be any confusion over team combinations. He added that the statements about “trying out things” should be avoided as they might hurt budding cricketers.

“Wins and losses are part of the game, but there shouldn’t be any confusion over team combinations. There shouldn’t be statements about “trying out things” and other similar remarks. You need to understand that these are players and they have families. When they read them… such things do pop up at a certain point of time. In front of media, both captains and coach should be consistent with their statements. Inside, you can debate as much as you want,” said the former India star.
