Karachi: Former Pakistan batsman, Salman Butt has opened up about his ideas on Indian cricket. He feels the rationale for India’s large success of their batting relies on their effectively organized home construction. He was all praises concerning the quantity of home cricket that’s performed in India.
Butt additionally harassed that U-16 matches in India happen within the longest format of the game which helps the cricketers turn into higher batsmen.
“India have Under-23, Under-19, Vijay Hazare Trophy, Ranji Trophy, Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 and then they have Under-16. Now what they are doing well, there’s no one-day or T20 for Under-16. They are making them play the longest format in which the basic skills are being developed. And when you see the numbers in just these four categories, there are 1218 games and if you include women’s games, the figure goes over 2000,” Butt stated in a video on his YouTube channel.

“Organizational skills of the (Indian) players can be judged from the fact that, even with five-six big names, a team managed to work towards a goal in a united manner. Dhoni captained Dravid, Ganguly, Tendulkar and Laxman. It is not an easy job. I had seen during my playing days, the captain respected the seniors, who reciprocated by backing their leader. So Dravid obviously has organizational skills. Add to it, his technical expertise. Dravid has proved himself in the toughest conditions. So he knows what to teach the youngsters since he has gained that experience,” he stated.
