Taskin has improved his English and seems lot more confident to speak in English. Most others (with all due respect) are more like drop outs of highschools/college, some prolly did till mid secondary school, and also from really humble background. So was Dhoni, one would say but he speaks English fine, and has improved it over the years. Do our players ever even try? That’s the bigger question.
I understand where you are coming from, but I still think we put too much emphasis on how cricketers are speaking English, I mean that should be a tertiary a thing. Speaking English alone does not define smartness. Sehwag, Bhajji, Miandad and many others didn't speak English yet they were as street-smart as they come. I think smartness is more about approach and body language. That being said cricketers being the representatives of their country should try to make themselves presentable to the media.

It was pretty well written. Found it while vainly googling my name.

The smartest and lightest cricketer in the world is Yuzvendra Chahal
