The Indian bowling attack for the England test series 

 

Ishant

Umesh

Shami

Shardul

Bumrah

Pandya

Ashwin

Jadeja

Kuldeep

 

Does this bowling attack looks like it can take 20 wickets in the tests.

Yes it can, but remember our batters have to deliver as well. The SA series was lost due to the collective failure of batsmen, not bowling. In fact it's easily the worst display of batting from India since the infamous 2002 tour of NZ.

Siraj is in top form.

They should have given him a chance.

He gets overwhelmed in the shorter version of the game ...but would have done well in tests.

 

 

Mediocre eyes can sense only mediocre talent,all organic there cant pollute their minds....farce

Despite having possibly the best resources ever, India has gone with a mediocre attack. Dog forbid, if Shami was to get injured, the Indian team is going to fall flat like a pack of cards!

They will probably fly in Chahar, Unadkat as replacement and for Siraj they would say few more A tour performances are  needed ,we dont want to rush him in all important overseas test,Chahar and Unadkat are the best available

Shami will get injured at some time.

We should expect that and keep a replacement ready. 

 

They should have kept back Siraj in England even if they did not select him. Make him tour with the team and practice in nets.

With shami and bumrah( right now) being fragile , he would have been handy.

Our bowling attack did well in SA. Having lost test against SA, the onus is on us to show we can win series overseas against good test teams at their home. Hence will like to be attacking and go with 5 specialist bowlers with a point to prove. Draw or lost series shouldn't be the approach. Pick 20 wickets per test. No time pass bowlers in pack of 5.

The bowling attack which did well in SA comprised of Bumrah. He is absent here and thats going to make significant difference. So, lets not get hyper excited. 

For the first time in umpteen years,I have confidence on Ishant,he may the difference for India this series,bas luck saath dede :giggle:

The selectors have included Bumrah in the squad announced for the first three Test matches but it is doubtful whether he would be fully recovered before that.

 

It is a displaced fracture on the left hand thumb. the operation wasn't a great success," the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) source, aware about the development, said.

A 5 specialist bowlers is a must as we don't have the services of our best bowlers in Bumrah and Kumar and Pandya need to sit this one out or else we will start off this series with 0-1. 

He’s an all rounder plus the cheerleader and captain rate him highly I definitely see him playing the first test.

So you think we'll play Hardik and 5 specialist bowlers :facepalm:

You never know. Depends on what approach Virat goes with. However, after the loss against SA in SA, the stigma of under performance in overseas series stays and he would be keen to  get rid of that. Probably that could lead to a positive approach and we might see 5 specialist bowlers.

It makes sense if we have Kumar, Ashwin, Jadeja as 3 of the 5 specialist bowlers. This makes our batting really long, but since Kumar is out there's very little chance of that happening. Also our batting is a worry, major worry atm and we cannot take Anders or Broad lightly, even if this is the hottest summer we'll face in England.

7 + 4 specialist bowlers will be risky as well. Not enough firepower to take 20 wickets every test given the conditions in England prevailing now.

It is a a trend of under staffing the bowling department by picking just 4 specialist bowlers, and when the team fails, blame the bowling for losing the test and drop the bowlers for next test or next series. But most of the seven batsmen will continue to get a free ride, even though they have flopped and over staffed as compared to bowling department. The bowlers are also expected to score runs. The batsman just have to bat whole series with a flop average without even a workload of single over, let alone picking one wicket and still manage to hold on to a place for next series. Tough to be a bowler.

They always pick wrong people for wrong format.

Siraj has been a flop in short format, even in IPL and the few internationals he has played. imo he can be given a chance in longer format at some point of time and see whether he manages to grab the opportunity at test level. Won't write him without trying in longer format on basis of performance in shorter formats. Some cricketers are good in some formats and cant adapt to all formats. Maybe he can adapt to longer format.
