BCCI President and former Indian cricketer Sourav Ganguly reckoned that it has been New Zealand’s time in world cricket and fancied them to win the title against Australia. New Zealand will definitely miss the services of Devon Conway who injured his hand unnecessarily in the semi-finals and Tim Seifert is expected to replace him in the lineup.
Meanwhile, Austalia has stuck to their theory of seven batsmen and four bowlers with three options for the fifth bowler. Both teams will desperate to get their hands on the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 trophy which they haven’t been able to win yet.
Sourav Ganguly Credits New Zealand For Their Guts And Character
Sourav Ganguly felt that the time has come for New Zealand to dominate the world of cricket as they have already made three of the last four ICC tournament finals. He added that they have always shown lots of guts and character and noted they have got a lot of steel.
“I feel it is New Zealand’s time in world sport. Australia are a great nation, but they have had a tough time for a while, though they have been a great cricketing country. New Zealand has a lot more guts and character than we see on TV.
They won the World Test Championship a few months ago. It’s a small country but it’s got a lot of steel. I have the feeling that it is indeed New Zealand’s time,” said Ganguly while speaking at the 40th Sharjah International Book Fair on Saturday.
Sourav Ganguly Views In On India’s Early Exit In The T20 World Cup
Sourav Ganguly mentioned that the match winners of the Indian team are all human beings and was delighted to see people feeling hard to digest the loss. He was confident that India will do well in the upcoming ICC tournaments next and noted that the two games cost a lot.
“Expectations were undoubtedly very high, but I was happy to see that a majority of the people had the heart to accept the result. They were upset, but they did not overreact. At the end of the day – Bumrah, Shami, Rohit, and Kohli are all human beings.
It was just a matter of two bad games. That’s 40 overs of bad cricket. They will bounce back, and within a year or so, we will see the same boys lifting trophies,” Ganguly added on India bowing out.
