India has had a normal year
Talking to Cricbuzz, Karthik said that this year has been quite ordinary for Team India. Talking about Test cricket, we had our chances against South Africa and we were 1-0 up but squandered it. Karthik said that even in Australia we squandered our chances. Not a good effort from the Indian team.
Test cricket will have to improve
Karthik said that there are many things in Test cricket in which Team India needs to improve. In the Test series against Bangladesh, we won the first match but the situation worsened in the second match. We had to make a way into it. We lost the only Test match in England. So Test cricket has been good for us but we need to improve on a lot of things.
Bad play in big tournament in T20
Talking about T20 cricket, Karthik said that we had defeated many teams in bilateral series but we looked weak in Asia Cup and T20 World Cup. We have to change the way we play T20 cricket. There have been many teams who are playing a brand of cricket and going ahead of us in this format. Instead of playing T20 cricket in a new way, we are stuck in the old way. We need to improve in this.
