Gautam Gambhir believes India has the ability but not the mental grit to beat New Zealand in the T20 World Cup.

Gautam Gambhir, The current Indian squad lacks the mental toughness to win major games. Which is why they have lost knockout games at ICC competitions in the last two years.

India's chances of making the semi-finals took a body blow on Sunday

Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir feels Virat Kohli’s squad has the mental strength to win knockout games in ICC events, despite an 8-wicket setback to New Zealand in the T20 World Cup on Sunday.

India needed to beat New Zealand to rescue their season, and they were supposed to come out swinging against the Kiwis in Dubai, but the opposite happened.

Gautam Gambhir, on the other hand, believes that the current Indian team, captained by Virat Kohli, lacks the mental toughness to win key games, which is why they have lost knockout games in major tournaments in recent years.

“Talent is one thing; you possess all of the necessary skills and thrive in bilaterals and other activities. You must, however, rise to the occasion when it comes to these types of activities and tournaments.

“It seemed like we were playing in a quarterfinal.” The team’s mental toughness is the problem. Bilaterals are a different story when you suddenly realize you have to win the game and can’t afford to make mistakes. However, I do not believe India have that mental toughness in these types of games.
