Jasipino BumrahThe player’s fitness will be an issue as another Indian team will look at pitch adjustments against Australia in the second T20 International and try to maintain a three-match streak. The match takes place in Nagpur on Friday. Bumrah, who has been out of action since the end of his tour in England, skipped the Asian Cup because of a back injury. However, to everyone’s surprise, the team management did not let him play in the first high-scoring T20I match in Mohali, raising doubts whether he will still reach peak fitness. .
To add to the team’s anxiety, the ‘three-and-a-half minute’ paced attack, consisting of Hardik Pandyaconceded 150 times in 14 rounds.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, a seasoned professional, was taken to the laundromat. He dropped 49 runs in his penultimate three games (19th) against Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia.
In this context, a fit and fiery Bumrah is a prerequisite for India as home bowlers are increasingly found on batting carousels.
The worst of the team is that with 5 official T20Is remaining before the opening match of the T20 World Cup against Pakistan on October 23, the Indian team looks very unsettled.
If reaching the top three was an issue in the Asian Cup, the bigger worry was that bowling was exposed in good batting conditions.
Yuzvendra Chahal, who had been India’s leader in all conditions, looked less threatening. He’s been very expensive in the last few games and he’ll have to find a way to deal with batters on bridges that aren’t very profitable.
India were also sloppy on the field, as they fouled to miss three catches, which received criticism from the former head coach Ravi Shastri.
In polishing, India’s aggressive approach has been profitable as KL RahulHardik Panda and Suryakumar Yadav took the team past the 200 mark after beating top order Rohit Sharma and Virat kohli was fired early.
Specified Finisher Dinesh Karthik There aren’t many chances on Tuesday and will likely be extended playtime with management looking to keep all options open for entering the world cup.
Multi-talented person Cameron Green nicely entered Warner’s shoes with a hot fifty at the top in just his second T20I, while Steven Smith and the debutant Tim David It also gives the team the momentum it needs with important cameos.
People with experience Matthew Wade too alive with the role of finishing with a 45 star not out of 21 and India will have to pull their socks up to prevent Australia from continuing to attack.
However, the wicket at the VCA stadium will be different from the Mohali track. It is supposed to be on the slower side, which will make the role of bowlers more prominent in this game.
When the fog falls in the evening, teams will prefer to chase rather than defend.
