Building a bowling attack for this year t20 Wc

Recommended Posts

The bowlers that have impressed me this season (so far) have been Prasidh and Umran. 

 

Prasidh has found some aggression and thats a required trait for fast bowlers. It plays on the psyche of the batsmen affecting their focus. Also, the bowler is then charged up to get back at the batsmen the next delivery after he gets hit. Even Siraj became more effective last year when he became more agressive.

Siraj has been disappointing so far. No impact. 

Bumrah hasn't got wickets but he bowled pretty well today especially at the death. I'm not worried about his form at all. He just needs to be well rested so that he's fresh. They should probably give him some days off now that MI is totally out of contention. 

 

I expect the selection to be Natarajan, BK, PRasidh, Bumrah although I would want Bumrah, Prasidh, Umran, Natarajan.

They shoudn;t waste too much time on Umran and get him in the team asap. For test match selection, I can understand as his body needs to get accustomed to that kind of workload but not for LOIs. Even Steyn has said, they shouldn't make him wait too much.

yes, Umran, Prasidh are a must, and would back up Bumrah. Nattu and Khaleel should be in the mix since they both offer something different than the norm.

 

I would still have one trundler in the squad who can bat like Deepak C (PP specialist) or Harshal (death over specialist)

Could umran become even better than bumrah shami in tests? That would be some sight. So far he has been poor in first class but that's on shitty patta pitches. 

Remember he hasn't learnt reverse swing etc and all the other tricks.

the thread was on T20s alone; my comments also on that format. otherwise, I would not recommend khaleel at all for tests, and not nattu either.

  • Max have one guy who is a one phase bowler that to like Umran who can be an X factor 
  • Jadeja unfortunaely will be in XI and he is a one phase bowler that too very below avg
  • Best is if we can have one spinner who can bowl in PP. If 2 nothing better then that 
  • 2 Fast bowlers shud be strong all 3 phase bowler or atleast 2 phase bowler or may one can be all phase and another 2 phase

fir se Arshdeep bhul gaya , also harshal 

Arshdeep is behind in the pecking order. While he is a prospect he is still a way away.

 

I alloted only one position based on their best strength to each bowler as you can see. Bumrah is obviously better than Thakur in middle, that’s not the point. Looking at the  bowling pool, assigning it by their strengths.

 

have also left out allrounders Jadeja and Pandya.

 

added Prasidh

Umran will be good at death too on big Aussie grounds.

He should be tried in a couple of situations in IPL. Just to get a taste of it. Not a conclusive proof but we will have some idea.
