Brutal Analysis of Venkatesh Prasad on the "Mediocore Indian Cricket Team"

Former fast bowler of Indian cricket Venkatesh Prasad criticized Rohit Sharma and co. after the defeat against WI in the second ODI in Barbados on Saturday. Team India struggled to score runs in the absence of star batsmen Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, who were bundled out for just 181. Earlier, Team India also missed out on the opportunity to whitewash the hosts in the Test series as rain played spoilsport in the second match of the series, which ended in a draw. Prasad tweeted that India have been ordinary in white-ball cricket and even called them out for "celebrating mediocrity".
Prasad tweeted, "Test cricket aside, India has been very ordinary in the other two formats for quite some time now. Lost the ODI series against Ban, SA, and Aus. Poor in the last two T20 World Cups. Neither are we an exciting team like England nor brutal like how the Aussies used to be."
He further tweeted, "Despite the money and power, we have become used to celebrating mediocrity and are far from how champion sides are. Every team plays to win, and so does India, but their approach and attitude are also factors in underperformance over a period of time."
