India is ‘Overrated’ in Test and T20 cricket: Says Kris Srikkanth

India is deemed as an Overrated team in the Test and T20 format, according to former opener Kris Srikkanth. He believes that numerous players in the current Test lineup have not lived up to their expected performance levels. Srikkanth expressed these views shortly after India faced a significant innings defeat in the initial Test against South Africa at Centurion. While acknowledging India’s past success under Virat Kohli, the 64-year-old emphasized the importance of not relying solely on historical achievements.

Kris Srikkanth stated on his youtube channel:

“Test cricket, we are over-rated. “I think it was a phase of 2-3 years…when Virat Kohli was the captain of the team, we were outstanding. We dominated in England, we fought hard in South Africa, we won in Australia. We had a good phase for 2-4 years.”

India has made it to the finals in the past two World Test Championships, but Srikkanth believes it’s now crucial to move beyond the ICC rankings.

Srikkanth also said that:

“We have to forget ICC rankings. We are always 1-2, 1-2. It’s a combination of having over-rated cricketers and people who have not performed up to their potential. Or some players have not enough chances like Kuldeep (Yadav)”


“If you want to be the best team, you should be capable of being the giants on home grounds. That is what we did when Rishabh Pant was firing.”


“But you can keep on saying that we scored in Australia, we scored in England. You can sing the same song; you won’t move forward if you rest on past laurels. You have to just look at how you have performed in the last two years, last 18 months.”

Regarding India’s performance in limited-overs cricket, Kris Srikkanth stated:

“In T20 cricket India are highly over-rated. ODI cricket, we are a fantastic team. What happens in ODIs, in the semifinals, finals, it’s just a one-off match. It’s a luck factor, a lot depends on luck in these matches.”
