The ICC T20 World Cup is closing in day by day. The Indian Team also is dealing with all sorts of different issues however it is almost set. There are a few small concerns here and there. With 15 to 18 days remaining in the beginning of the official games of the World Cup, the Indian Cricket team will be keen on solving all these small yet significant issues. So, here is an in-depth look at 3 concerns for the Indian Cricket Team:
1) Jasprit Bumrah and his Struggle with the Back Injury:
Jasprit Bumrah has been dealing with a back injury since the India Tour of England 2022. His bowling action is such that he was always subject to such injuries. But the situation escalated in the ODI series against England. From then on, Jasprit had to miss a few games for the Indian national team. After that series, Jasprit made a comeback to the Indian team in the Australia Tour of India 2022. But he has started to get a niggle in the back again. What is the situation of that injury? How severe it is? All these questions need to be answered!
2) Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya Rehab Before ICC T20 World Cup:
Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya, two other crucial players of the Indian team are at the NCA for some rehabilitation. Hardik’s reason is unclear. Bhuvi’s presence at the NCA is due to his rehab for the hamstring. Both these players are big match-winners for India and are an integral part of the Indian T20I team. They cannot be effectively replaced. The case of Hardik is such that he is a one-of-a-kind player. His class on the pitch is second to none.
3) Death Bowling in the ICC T20 World Cup:
Death Bowling is a significant aspect of today’s game. The advent of the T20 game has shifted the focus more towards this aspect of the game. There are specialist death bowlers today. Dwayne Bravo is one such legend of death bowling. Lasith Malinga is another name that comes to mind. India currently has two to three good death bowlers. Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh, and Jasprit Bumrah are a few names that come to mind. But if required can Hardik or Bhuvi bowl an over? Will Harshal be effective on the Australian pitches? These questions need to be answered.
