Rohit Sharma led Indian team will look to end its 11-year drought for an ICC title when the Men in Blue will take part in the  upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 to be played in USA and West Indies.

However, former England great David Lloyd was severely critical of India's approach in the ICC tournaments. 

During a recent interaction on why India fail to step up in the high-pressure situations of the knockouts, Lloyd insisted that the Indian team doesn't want to take risks. 

"The Indian team is quite a predictable team. The shackles are not off," said Lloyd.

"I would think the opposition accept the quality.. yeah, good players these. But they ain't taking a risk with bat or ball. So, you'd think of them as ‘yeah, they will have their moments,’ but they wouldn't be really threatening," he added.

Notably, India will kickstart their T20 World Cup campaign against Ireland on June 5. The Men in Blue will lock horns with arch-rivals Pakistan in New York four days later.
