This year the Indian team has played eight matches away from home, but has won only two matches. In the remaining six matches, India has to face defeat. At the same time, during this period, India have won four series at home and drawn one.
The Indian team lost the Edgbaston Test against England by seven wickets. It was India’s sixth consecutive defeat abroad under Rahul Dravid’s coach. After becoming the coach of the Indian team, Dravid had made Team India the champion in the first match in foreign soil, but after that he has not been able to win India in any match. In the year 2022, India has played a total of eight matches abroad and has to face defeat in six. The two matches that have been won were both against Ireland and in the second T20, India were left losing. After this questions are being raised whether Team India is only the lion of the house.
Under the leadership of Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri, India may not have won any ICC trophy, but the performance of Team India abroad was phenomenal. At the same time, India’s performance in the Rohit-Dravid era has been just the opposite. Dravid is yearning for the first win abroad this year,
in the two T20 matches that the Indian team has won abroad in the year 2022, VVS Laxman was the coach of the Indian team and Hardik Pandya was captaining. At the same time, two six matches have been lost. They include three Tests and three ODIs. Five defeats have come against South Africa, while one-loss is against England. During this, Dravid remained the coach, but the captain kept changing.
India lost the first test under the captaincy of KL Rahul, lost the next test under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. KL Rahul captained the ODI series and lost all three matches. After this Jasprit Bumrah was captained against England and India lost this match too. During this, India was close to victory in only one match, when Deepak Chahar scored a half-century in the third ODI against South Africa to bring Team India closer to victory and India lost the match by four runs. Apart from this, Team India has been a flop on foreign soil.
