Building a bowling attack for this year t20 Wc

Recommended Posts

6. Hardik

7. Jadeja

8. Harshal

9. <<Undecided>>

10. Kuldeep Yadav

11. Bumrah

 

<<Undecided>> = Between Deepak Chahar, Umesh and Shami. Possibly even Prasidh. It would depend on how well one of these guys performs in the remaining games. Chahar first needs to be fit of course.

but the wickets in australia will be different though? being good on indian pitches will not make said bowler effective in aus and vice versa. have to look at skills mainly. thakur prasidh bumrah should definitely be in.

Harshal on hard, flat and unforgiving AUS decks? Not convinced.

 

OTOH, very much in favor of spinners - leggies/offies/LAO - who turn big. So kuldeep instead of Chahal.

 

The other spin A/R? Prefer Axar/Washington over Jaddu.

 

Bumrah, Prasidh and Siraj with Hardik as seaming A/R make up the rest for me. Shardul, Bhuvi and Chahar shouldn't be within a mile of the playing XI.

 

6. Hardik

7. Sundar/Axar

8. Bumrah

9. Siraj

10. Kuldeep

11. Prasidh

 

Remember, batting depth in T20s is way overrated. Not enough overs in play for the illusory cushion of batting deep. The trade-off is a vastly more penetrating and versatile attack.

My approach would be something like this:

 

1) Context is the king! Since we play in Australia, I'd analyze the data from their national leagues & the T20s hosted there in the last two years to see if there are any particular type of bowlers who do not work there. This will help me to avoid these type of bowlers in my desired set. No matter how much in-form are these kind of bowlers, I won't take them.

2) Line up the batsmen of each team that we play in league phase.

3) Do data analysis to find the key weakness of their batsmen - bounce, pace, swing, right-arm, left-arm, leg-spin, fast spin, etc.

4) Then, assemble an abstract lineup of bowlers (one leg-spinner, one left arm fast with specialty in bounce or swing, etc.) who fit the match-ups in stage 3.

5) Now, this is the stage where I would ponder over the concrete names from the pool of bowlers available to us.

 

 

 

Forgot to add one essential step in my "horses for courses" approach. Added now (in bold).

 

I'm soon gonna make a topic where I will mentally masturbate to being an armchair selector and apply this approach to arrive at a concrete list of names. Please bear with me.

Indian dumbasses from management only want one size fits all. Not horses for courses.

That is why I have picked Kuldeep Yadav. He has done well in Aus in the past. My opinion on Thakur is split. While his batting is definitely handy, his bowling is way too wayward.

Death over 
Harshal- game after game he is among wkts + batting 
Nattu- getting better game after game + left arm variety 

Till now 

  • So nattu is at top
  • Harshal hasnt been among wkts but his eco is 9 which is very good at death 

 

Add to that arshdeep has again shown great maturity at end

we need PP specialist, death over specialist, spinners who can get wkts in MO, bowling/batting ARs. need to choose the right personnel such that we have batting depth till 8

 

PP specialist is what we miss most.

 

No one who can strike early

observation 

 

  • umesh post PP is struggling
  • Prasidh not impressed with him
  • shami-naaah
  • Umran- he ll be definately my punt pick for this Wc 
  • Nattu- improving game after game 

 

I agree. Prasidh/Siraj are more test bowlers. Harshal will be under consideration.  One of his ball was clocking 142 kph.   Arshdeep is also decent in death.

broadly speaking, we need 6 bowling options. if Pandu keeps up his batting and bowling form, he should be there.

 

6. Pandu

7. Sundar (can be used as floater and go up/down the order based on matchups/situation) --> PP specialist [another option is axar]

8. D. Chahar [we don't have genuine PP specialists, and deepak's batting is a big bonus]; thakur is an option, but not suited to bowl in PP

9. H. Patel/Nattu/arshdeep --> death overs specialist

10. Kuldeep/Khaleel/Bumrah --> choose based on conditions/combo

11. U. Malik//Khaleel/prasidh [middle overs enforcer]
