“One with Kohli, one against Kohli”

Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar provided a surprising guess in the midst of Team India’s dismal performance on the current course T20 World Cup 2021 ongoing in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

The start of the Indian cricket team’s 2021 T20 World Cup was nothing devastating, with the team struggling to rank fifth on the Group 2 points table following a humiliating defeat in their first two games .

Shoaib Akhtar claims division in the Indian team

While that wasn’t enough, Shoaib Akhtar believes there may be a growing gap in the Indian cricket team right now, with one group continuing to support skipper Virat Kohli and the other group opposing him.

India ended up losing their first Super 12 match by ten wickets to Pakistan, before falling to New Zealand by eight wickets in the second match.

Pakistani veteran Shoaib Akhtar seriously thinks the Indian cricket team is split into two groups, and it is almost evident that many of his team members are not assisting or supporting skipper Virat Kohli ashore.

India at the 2021 T20 World Cup

The Indian cricket team, having won both warm-up matches against England and Australia, had a bit of a tough time as they suffered two consecutive defeats against Pakistan and New Zealand in their first 2 games.

First, the men in blue suffered a 10-wicket defeat at the hands of the Pakistan cricket team, where the batting unit and bowling unit failed. In the next game, they again lost 8 wickets this time to New Zealand, and once again the batting unit and bowling unit failed.

India now has Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia left to play in the tournament and both games are now to be won. Another defeat and India’s chances of reaching the semi-finals will be nullified.
