R Sridhar, a former fielding coach for India, was asked about his thoughts on the fast bowling trio that would be selected for India’s Twenty20 World Cup team in Australia in 2022. Bhuvneshwar’s recent form has been fairly strong, and he is virtually certain to be selected for the Twenty20 World Cup 2022 team. This is in contrast to the selection of Jasprit Bumrah, which was widely anticipated.
Bhuvneshwar has taken the most wickets for India since the previous T20 World Cup in 2021 with 23, and he has bowled very effectively both with the new ball and in the death overs. Sridhar’s selection was an unusual one. Mohammad Shami, a right-arm seamer who most recently competed in the Twenty20 World Cup 2021 in a Twenty20 International, was Sridhar’s choice. When it comes to choosing the fast bowling combo, the selectors for India are likely to have a lot of trouble since they have a lot of possibilities in addition to the three mentioned above.
Sridhar acknowledged that India now has a number of fast bowling options, which presents a challenge for the team, but he was pretty optimistic that the three most experienced seamers will be selected for the Twenty20 World Cup. He went on to explain the various roles that they are capable of playing at various points in the game, and he expressed his belief that Bhuvneshwar is physically capable of performing well during the last overs of the match.
What did R Sridhar say?
“I believe that the issue of abundance is one that we now face, isn’t it? Look, I’m going, to be honest with you, and I’m going to go right to the point. Bumrah, Shami, and Bhuvi are the three fast bowlers who I believe should be considered our top three. Because if you have this, you have an absolute banker, a banker new-ball bowler, and a death-over bowler in Bhuvi who is in the finest form he has ever been in terms of his fitness,” R Sridhar said in an interview with Cricket.com.
He went on to say that Shami poses a threat to the opening batsmen and that he believes India has the fifth bowling option covered thanks to the presence of all-rounders Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya in the discussion.
“And we have Shami, who will come up with the new ball and ask a lot of questions to the greatest opening batter in the world. Therefore, you may bowl Bhuvi and Shami for two overs, and because Hardik is a bowler and Jadeja is an all-rounder, we do not need to worry about the fifth and sixth bowler positions. “When it comes to the World Cup, you need the big guys to go in and play, and these are the three as far as fast bowling is concerned, and they are supported by another big boy in Hardik,” he continued.
