Bowling attack for T20WC

Recommended Posts

Siraj is quite good with the new ball, esp. gets the swing going similar to Boult 

 

Ideally should be in the world cup squad ... below looks a potent bowling attack: 

 

Siraj

Bhuvi or ... 

Bumrah

Natarajan 

 

4 seamers + 1 spinner

We lack wicket taking options with the new ball. And Siraj is a wicket taker.

 

If he finishes this IPL.with a good enough economy rate, he should be included.

 

Yes, we rely on Bumrah and Natarajan to contain and bowl well in the middle overs and at the death but we also need a bowler who can use the new ball well ... If you look at MI's attack, it is Boult with the new ball that gives it an edge (makes other bowlers effective too by picking up early wkts to put pressure on the other team)

I would have Shami instead of Siraj. He's much better death bowler and takes plenty of wickets too. 

 

Shami is a good option too. Any 2 from likes of Siraj, Bhuvi, Shami, etc. can be considered depending upon form ... Right now, Siraj is showing good wkt taking form

Siraj is a much improved white ball bowler this year.

 

Has become very accurate at good pace and can pick wickets with the new ball.

Pretty good if he can get the swing going ... one should not rule out wkt taking options 

 

If their is swing avl ill have chahar, provided he finds his rhythm....which he hasnt gotten till now 

Siraj need to see a lot more specially death bowling

As of today for me 

 

Locked 

 

  1. Bumrah
  2. Bhuvi 
  3. Nattu
  4. Thakur but its more becoz of his batting

 

Under doubt

 

  1. Shami
  2. Siraj
  3. Deepak- simple get back his rhythm 
  4. Saini 
  5. Prasidh (one among saini vs Prasidh )

 

 

Spin dept 

 

Locked 

 

  • Ashwin
  • Rahul chahar 

 

Under doubt 

 

  • Varun. C - if he is able to maintain his mystery for one more season
  • Chahal - need his form back 
  • Kuldeep - has to be miraculous turnaround

D Chahar is good too but Siraj can win/change a game on his own if bowling well - saw him do that for RCB in UAE too in one of the games

Because of dew and batting surfaces, Ind could go with 4 pacers ... in that case, the spinner would be an AR batting at #7 like Sundar, Jadeja, Tewatia, etc. 
 

A spinner (or two) would play in place of one (or two) of the 4 pacers if tracks become sluggish like at C’nai 

 

Final could probably be at dew heavens like Mumbai and A’bad

Chahar has been a match winner for CSK for 2-3 season, just been off due to injury in last yr or so 

Siraj i really wanna see his death bowling. Those UAE wkts had something for fast bowlers apart from sharjhah ....these are completely different wkts. 

In India- Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyd, Pune and few more are absolute belters

with WC just a few months away, the team would be more focused on current form esp. for bowlers, which is past 6 to 12 months 

 

Also note that Ind has Bumrah & Natrajan to bowl at the death, along with the 3rd seamer like Bhuvi. The role of the 4th “wkt taking” seamer like Siraj (or whoever) is to bowl 2-3 overs with the new ball to get wkts with the swing (not concerned with bowling at the death) much like what someone like Boult does with the new ball for e.g.

Need one of them who can bat..cant go in with 4 players who cant bat...Shardul will play

 

 

Bumrah, Bhuvi and Shardul will be the top 3 pacers. Shardul because he is a bowling all-rounder.

 

But Siraj can be in the squad.

 

If Sundar can improve his big hitting then

 

7. Jadeja

8. Sundar

9. Bhuvi

10. Siraj

11. Bumrah 

 

Is possible.
