After losing the one-off Test match against England, India managed to win both the T20I and ODI series against them. Rohit Sharma’s men performed fantastically throughout the series and won these two series convincingly. Many players like Yuzvendra Chahal, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, and Rishabh Pant were the stars of the show for India during the series.
However, despite winning the series, India still needs to work on some areas which are lacking continuously for them. Ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year, these areas need to be appropriately covered if India wants to make that tournament a memorable one. Here are the top five drawbacks that need to be managed by Team India:
Lack of consistency of Umran Malik

This new pace sensation of India came into the limelight when Umran Malik enjoyed a great Indian T20 League season for his Hyderabad franchise. His sheer pace, throughout the tournament, was the talk of the town as he earned his maiden India call-up in the home T20I series against the Proteas. But, he made his International debut for India against Ireland as he played two matches there.
He also played one T20I against England. But, he failed to deliver significant performances as he picked up two wickets only. In all those matches, he bowled nine overs at an economy of 12.44. Such performances did not help him at all as he got dropped from the upcoming white-ball series against West Indies later this month.
