After a lacklustre marketing campaign within the Asia Cup, the Indian cricket crew began their bilateral T20I collection in opposition to Australia on a dropping word on Tuesday. Regardless of scoring 208/6 batting first, India misplaced the match by 4 wickets. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4-0-52-0), Harshal Patel (4-0-49-0), Yuzvendra Chahal (3.2-0-42-1), Umesh Yadav (2-0-27-2), Hardik Pandya (2-0-22-0) all leaked runs. Former India participant Aakash Chopra feels that with this bowling line-up, India’s hopes of profitable the 2022 T20 World Cup, that begins in mid-October, has been dented.
“We’re saying that Harshal can be again, Bumrah can be again and every part can be alright. It doesn’t occur that approach. That is the unhappy actuality of life. Bumrah was within the Mumbai Indians crew, others didn’t bowl effectively and see what occurred to MI this yr. In a single match you’ll be able to take 5 to 6 wickets, in the remainder of the times you will not get that many wickets,” Aakash Chopra said on his YouTube channel.
“In response to me, Indian bowling is wanting very weak, no wicket-taking choices are in sight. Yuzi Chahal continues to bowl quicker. He’s not bowling slower ones. The identical was the case in Asia Cup. How will you get wickets for those who do not bowl slower in any respect?
“The fact is that India have a weak bowling line-up. With this line-up, hopes of profitable the World Cup turn out to be much less. If you cannot defend 208, then issues are going to be troublesome. Bear in mind, this Australian crew is with out 4 of its essential members.”
