The former India cricketer made an honest assessment but that didn't go down too well with some Twitter users.

India are currently in Sri Lanka for the tri-nation Twenty20 International series, Nidahas Trophy, also involving Bangladesh.

After losing their first match to hosts Sri Lanka, India have won all of their next three matches to march into the final of the T20I tournament.

Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will battle it out in a virtual semi-final on Friday to determine who will play India in the title clash.

India are without some of their big guns with youngsters given a chance to prove themselves on the international stage.

The likes of Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya have all been rested from the tournament. In the absence of Kohli, the captaincy has been given to star opener Rohit Sharma, who also captains the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The final of the tournament will be played at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on March 18 (Sunday).
