Former opener Virender Sehwag on Thursday criticised India’s defensive approach against spinners after Virat Kohli and his men once again struggled against the slow bowlers for the second consecutive match in the ongoing World Cup.

Considered as one of the finest players of spin bowling, India struggled against Rashid and Mujeeb Ur Rahman in its last game against Afghanistan.

The famed Indian batting line-up once again found the going tough against West Indies left-arm spinner Fabian Allen on Thursday.

Sehwag said Kohli and his team need to come out of the defensive shell at the earliest. Wicket-keeper batsman M.S. Dhoni was criticised for his defensive batting against Afghanistan.

“Rashid Khan had gone for 25 in 4 overs, gave away only 13 in his next six and today Fabian Allen had given 34 in 5 overs, only 18 in next five. Can’t be so defensive against the spinners,” Sehwag tweeted.
