Mumbai: The Indian cricket team, seven of whose members were declared ‘unfit’ by coach Gary Kirsten, returned from its disastrous World Twenty20 campaign on Friday.
The team landed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport after a 28-hour flight.
India, which had won the inaugural World T20 tournament in 2007, failed to win three of its Super Eight matches in 2010’s tournament.
The performance has led to many questions being asked of skipper M S Dhoni and his teammates.
On Thursday, Kirsten, reportedly slammed his players for their poor fitness levels and lack of commitment.
He pointed out that even he was fitter than some of the players and gave the players a month’s time to shape up.
Kirsten also said the team was content to be number one in Tests and number two in ODIs, but had not shown enough commitment to scale the summit at the World T20.
Kirsten who has been coach of Team India since March 2008, would submit a report to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on the T20 World Cup performance.
