Former India international Robin Uthappa has made an interesting observation. Uthappa suggests that the team has gone through a lot of changes throughout the year, which has created a feeling of insecurity among the players.

“I feel there is a lack of sense of security among the players in the team. There have been constant changes in the team over a long period of time, when a player does not feel safe, he always has the mindset to defend his place in the team Is. PTI,

“I think it is important to give players a sense of security. What we are seeing is that there have been a lot of changes over the years. And in important matches their performance drops because they are looking for the next match. Not sure of his place in the team for now.”

Uthappa was part of the Indian team that won the inaugural ICC T20 World Cup in 2007 and has won the IPL title three times. He says that the teams which have not tinkered with their playing XI have won the title.

He said, ‘You look at the IPL, most of the times such teams have won the titles which have made less changes in the playing XI. The success of Chennai (Super Kings) and Mumbai (Indians) also proves this.

Although Uthappa has retired from all forms of Indian cricket, he continues his playing career, currently representing Dubai Capitals in the ILT20 in the United Arab Emirates.

“I am thrilled to be playing competitive cricket for the first time in six months. It (ILT20) is a good tournament. Some of the best players in the world are playing here,” said the wicketkeeper-batsman.

And he has no qualms about saying goodbye to his Indian career.

“It is a BCCI rule (India players have to retire from all forms of cricket played in the country and take NOC from BCCI to play abroad). We don’t make the rules but we have to follow them. I had to take a decision, so I decided to retire (from Indian cricket).”
