Biswal submits WT20 report, recommendations made

New Delhi:

The Indian team's tour manager, Ranjib Biswal on Saturday, submitted his report on India's disastrous T20 performance to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

NDTV has learnt the report focuses on team India's cricketing failures and the meeting will determine the future of several players. Biswal has backed players' views about the fact that playing two back to back tournaments and then travelling for 36 hours didn't help.

The report also talks about the inability of the team to keep wickets in the initial 5-6 overs and the failure in properly implementing pre-match strategies.

Biswal said he has made some recommendations to the Board in his report on the trip, which ended in humiliation for inaugural champions India when they were knocked out of the showpiece event after failing to win even a single Super Eights stage match.

"I have submitted the report to the BCCI about the T20 World Cup in the West Indies. The BCCI is looking at the report and they will get back to you," Biswal told reporters after spending close to one and a half hour and the BCCI headquarters on Saturday.

"There are certain issues which I have recommended to the BCCI and I hope the Board knows how to react to that and I hope, the Board reacts to that," he added.

A source said the issues which Biswal is referring to are fitness, discipline and susceptibility to short-pitched bowling, which was throughly exposed on the bouncy Caribbean tracks.

"Biswal's report deals with all the issues that happened in the West Indies. The report has suggestions about the need to play more on bouncy wickets, issues relating to discipline and fitness of the players are also there," the source said.

Biswal once again denied media reports of Indian players being involved in a bar brawl in the West Indies after crashing out of the World Cup.

"That incident never took place. It was just a verbal talk and there is nothing substantial to that. There was an argument because the boys, who went there (to the pub) for dinner, were harassed by some Indian fans. There is nothing much about it," he said.

Also, the fallout of this meeting between the team manager and the BCCI could be the axe for Yuvraj in the Asia cup and a dressing down for Rohit Sharma.
