Indian Media: Indian team should learn from Pakistan

The Indian media has lashed out at the national cricket team for their dismal show on their tour to Australia following Pakistan’s emphatic win over the No. 1 test side, England. Several news channels have added extra burden on the weak and ageing shoulders
of top players such as Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Rahul Dravid and Virendar Sehwag.
This Indian team suffered a 4-0 whitewash on their tour to England last year in June, and the pattern has been followed by the ruthless Aussies. The Kangaroos have been all over Mahinder Singh Dhoni’s men since the start of their tour which also includes
two successive innings defeat.
Having recently suffered an embarrassing loss at Perth, the Indian media is continuously targeting its World Cup winners, and especially the senior pros’. Some of the former players have already called for the induction of youth cricketers into the Indian
test side which hints at the dropping out of senior players including Tendulkar.
On the other hand, India’s fierce rivals and neighbours, Pakistan, are hosting England in the Emirates for a complete tour which include three tests, four ODI’s and three T20’s. Pakistan have already gone one up in the test series with a comprehensive win
over the English side inside three days. This is the same English team which humiliated India, and this is probably why the Indian media is continuously criticizing its national side.
 One of the Indian news channels have urged Dhoni’s men to learn a few lessons from the youthful Pakistan side, who embarrassed England in the first test at the Dubai Cricket Stadium. According to the media report, a team which has the hands on experience
should learn from a team which only has Younis Khan as the most experienced test cricketer with 74 tests, where as the rest have not even crossed the 40 mark.
The Indian team are to play one more test match against the Kangaroos, while the Green Shirts have to play two more before both countries bring the test series to an end. The Indian team can at least survive their second consecutive whitewash by drawing
or winning the last test in Adelaide to have some sort of consolation under their belt. Pakistan, though, can rejoice by drawing the remaining two tests in order to invite some more criticism of the Men in Blue by their own media.
