The Indian camp is experiencing some concerns. India has struggled in crucial matches in major tournaments for most of the past ten years. India seemed to be in complete control. The team, though, is far from fixed.
While the top order appeared to have regained some of its menacing form against Pakistan on Sunday, the team’s weakness—the sixth bowling option—has once again been highlighted by Ravindra Jadeja’s absence. The middle order’s two to three overs from the left-arm spinner frequently gave the team breathing room.
Bowling concern for Team India
When Pakistan mounted a counterattack on Sunday, the attack came undone. Arshdeep Singh and Ravi Bishnoi, two of India’s less skilled bowlers, had the best economy rates. When two of their top three bowlers were having a horrible day, it is not helpful.
It’s simple to overreact to Hardik’s resurgence as a fast bowler. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal don’t have a lot of room to maneuver. In addition, Bhuvneshwar’s bowling at the end is currently questionable.
In their batting strategy, India wants to be incredibly aggressive. They must make a deep catch for that. Dinesh Karthik batted at No. 7 in the opening game instead of higher, as Jadeja, with that being the intention. The batting order seems weaker without Jadeja. He couldn’t tee off since Bhuvneshwar was batting at position eight, as Virat Kohli noted during the Pakistan match.
Shanaka believes IPL improved bowling
Shanaka doesn’t want to engage in a discussion because he has two strong spinners in Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theeksana. Because of the IPL, Indian spinners will always be capable in his eyes. “These guys have all participated in the IPL and gained a lot of experience from it. They are a qualified bowling group, “said Shanaka.
Shanaka would be aware of the recent difficulties Indian hitters have had against strong spin. Perhaps for this reason, in order to have another off-spinning alternative, he is thinking of playing Dhananjay de Silva in lieu of Charith Asalanka.
