Gautam Gambhir, India’s star performer in the 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup triumphs, feels that the core of the ODI team should not be taking too many breaks ahead of the marquee event.
“You need to identify the core as well which is very important. We chopped and changed too many things, too frequently as well. We never had a settled unit. And more importantly, you can’t keep on taking breaks. If the World Cup is around the corner, if you are playing the 50-over World Cup then at least our core, whether it is Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma, all these guys have to play consistent cricket,” Gautam Gambhir told ESPNCricinfo.

“They can’t keep on taking breaks. Suddenly, you will realise that by the time the World Cup is around the corner, you still don’t have a settled unit and then you start making too many changes, it will never work. That’s what happening for the last two World Cups, whether it is T20 or 50-over World Cup. So, I hope that guys don’t take much breaks, especially in the 50-over format.”
