Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal was all praise about the Indian cricketing set-up and claimed the country’s inclination towards Test cricket as the rise behind the sport.
Akmal also felt that most of the Indian legends, except for MS Dhoni, retired playing Test cricket, which showcases the team’s vision towards the traditional form of the sport.
Akmal in a video, which was recently released on his YouTube channel said: “India have not compromised on their red-ball cricket. At school level, India have two-day, three-day cricket. Today, they have a pool of 50 players because Indian cricket has given a lot of importance to Test cricket.”
“Among all the legends of Indian cricket, except MS Dhoni, no one has retired after playing white-ball cricket. All the others played a Test match as their last one. That gives us a great idea of their vision: how to build a team, how to bring in players into the Indian set-up,” the 39-year-old added.
