Former India wicketkeeper-hitter Parthiv Patel and seamer Ajit Agarkar as of late opened up with respect to the ideal playing mix for the group for the T20 World Cup, where Virat Kohli-drove India will launch their procedures on October 24 against Pakistan in Dubai.
In front of the Super12s, India cavorted home to an overwhelming triumph against England in the warm-up match hung on October 18, pursuing down 189 with an over to extra, on the rear of shining half-hundreds of years from Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul prior to final details of Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya in the lower-order.
Parthiv Patel expressed he is certain that Indian captain Kohli knows the mix he needs to field yet brought up an issue with respect to who might India pick among Bhuvneshwar kumar and Shardul Thakur.
Strikingly, Bhuvneshwar has not partaken in awesome of the squad in the new past and wound up releasing 54 runs in his four over quota against England in the warm-up game.
“I am sure Virat knows his playing XI and probably not the names, but I am sure he knows what combination he wants to go with. To me, the question will be, should you play Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Shardul Thakur,” stated by Parthiv Patel on Show Cricket Connected in Star Sports.
“Probably Rohit Sharma & KL Rahul to open Virat at No.3, Suryakumar at No.4, Rishabh at No. 5, Hardik – even if he is not bowling, he is picked as someone who can finish the game – Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Shami, Bumrah and the last choice will be between Shardul Thakur and Bhuvneshwar Kumar,” added by him.
Patel’s co-specialist and former India pacer Ajit Agarkar talked about the bowling setup that India is probably going to pick, figuring that Kohli will proceed with five bowlers provided that the pitch has “something to offer” for the players.
“Relatively certain that Virat Kohli would like six bowling options. If the pitch has something to offer, then you can perhaps take a chance with five bowlers, but if it’s a flat pitch, he would ideally want to go in with six bowlers with three seamers and they have lots of spin options” said by Agarkar.
“And Jadeja is an all-rounder whose batting has come out in leaps and bounds. So, you can treat him as one of the top-order batsmen. So, my six options – if Hadik Pandya is not to bowl – would be Bumrah, Shami, Shardul, Ravindra Jadeja, Varun Chakravarthy and Rahul Chahar.” Concluded by him.
