Former Indian cricket team head coach Ravi Shastri has delivered a stark warning to the current squad ahead of their ICC World Cup 2023 semi-final clash against New Zealand. Shastri emphasized that this year presents India’s “best chance” to end their decade-long trophy drought.

The cricketing legend cautioned that if the current team fails to convert their impeccable form into a World Cup title this year, they might have to wait for another three World Cups to envision victory. Shastri pointed out that 7-8 players in the current Indian squad are at their peak, making this tournament a crucial opportunity.

“This country is going mad. The last time they won it [the World Cup] was 12 years ago. They have an opportunity to do it again. The way they are playing, this is probably their best chance,” said Shastri.

Shastri also highlighted that for some players, including Mohammad Shami, Rohit Sharma, and Ravindra Jadeja, this could be their last World Cup, adding an extra layer of urgency to secure the coveted trophy.

“It could well be their last World Cup. The way they are playing, given the conditions, they have got the team to win it,” Shastri emphasized. He praised the team’s bowling attack, stating that it is the best in 50 years of white-ball cricket.

The former coach commended the bowlers for their strategic use of short balls as a surprise weapon, with the majority of deliveries focused on consistent line and length. Shastri credited the seam positions of the bowlers, causing the ball to nip around and create problems for opponents.
