After having a forgettable time on the cricket pitch in 2023, Team India will be looking to make a fresh start in the new year. They face South Africa in the second Test today on Wednesday, January 03 at Newlands, Cape Town. The Rohit Sharma-led side suffered a defeat by an innings and 32 runs in the opening game in Centurion and are now looking for a win to level the series.

Let us tell you that India is the number one ranked Test team with 118 rating. However, they have failed to win consecutive World Test Championship finals. Former India cricketer Krishnamachari Group is also not very happy with India’s Test performance and has called them an ‘overrated team’. He believes that when Virat was the captain, the team was doing well in Test cricket for 2-3 years.

K Srikanth called India an overrated team in Test and T-20.

Srikanth said on his YouTube channel, “We are overrated in Test cricket. I think it was the 2-3 year phase…when Virat Kohli was the captain of the team, we were excellent. We dominated in England, we fought hard in South Africa, we won in Australia. We had a good phase for 2-4 years.”

Srikanth further said, ‘We have to forget the ICC rankings. We’re always number 1-2, 1-2. It is a mix of overrated cricketers and cricketers who have not performed to their potential. Or some players like Kuldeep (Yadav) who have not got enough opportunities. If you want to be the best team, you must be able to become a giant on home grounds. This is what we did when Rishabh Pant was firing.

Talking about India’s performance in limited overs cricket, the former cricketer said that ‘India is more overrated in T20 cricket. ODI cricket, we are a great team. What happens in the semi-finals and finals in ODI is a one-time match. It is a factor of luck, a lot depends on luck in these matches.
