Indian cricket has future only if players play like there's no tomorrow: MacGill

Melbourne, Sun, 04 Mar 2012 ANI

Melbourne, Mar 4(ANI): Former Australian leg-spinner Stuart MacGill has reckoned that Indian cricket has a future only if players play like there's no tomorrow and retain the competitive spirit missing in some of their more experienced teammates.


He added that Team India needs to take the advice of batsman Virat Kohli seriously and play every game as if it is facing a do-or- die situation.


"We are going to think each game is the last for us, and we are going to think of every game as do-or-die if we reach the finals," Kohli had said.


MacGill said the Indian batting line up has failed to fire throughout the tour of Australia.


"The longest summer will really start to heat up for the Indian team when it gets home. Or at least it should. The players return to India with many questions to answer, and a couple will probably get a tap on the shoulder from the selectors. There has been something desperately wrong with them this tour and I think at least some of the answers can be found in Hobart," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted him, as saying.


"They are obviously being held back by the fact they generate the majority of world cricket income, because, far from having a do-or-die attitude, they appear to believe winning is secondary to the appearance. If you're simply touring the world entertaining fans and driving TV revenue, then you don't belong in a national team. The next game really should be your last," he added. (ANI)
