Salman Butt, a former captain of Pakistan, thinks India can produce batters of the highest caliber because of their robust domestic system.
He believes that because they are encouraged to play extended innings starting with age-group cricket, the Men in Blue locate batsmen with the temperament to do so.
Butt believes Pakistan should take note of Shubman Gill’s accomplishment and make adjustments to their domestic system in light of his status as the youngest batter and sixth Indian to score a double century in ODIs.
Salman Butt discussed Indian cricket in a video on his YouTube account, as follows: “India’s system should be studied and adopted by other teams, like our own Pakistan, who frequently lose games by pursuing high scores despite being in a position to win. You must organize these competitions and allow the children to hone their abilities. These abilities will come naturally to them in five to ten years.”
“The real credit for India’s dominance in the 200-club belongs to junior-level cricket, where hitters are devoted to playing for long periods of time. Because there is no time constraint, your ability to score runs with the right shots and set up batters to pick wickets improves” Salman Butt Added.
“Our batters score the fifties and get dismissed”: Salman Butt
Salman Butt thinks that because they play shorter formats more frequently while they are young, Pakistani hitters of the current generation lack the temperament to play long innings.
Butt emphasized the significance of putting the appropriate procedure in place and said: “Because we have given them 80-90 percent T20 cricket at the youth and university levels, our batters hit the fifties and get dismissed”
“We haven’t prioritized lengthier formats, so they end up playing risky shots because they lack the necessary abilities. Gill was able to play such a magnificent knock at such a young age due to his exposure and the appropriate method” Salman Butt Added.
It’s important to note that Pakistan’s next match will be a white-ball series against New Zealand in April.
