Former Indian cricketer Deep Dasgupta, on the other hand. It believes that the controversy surrounding Hardik Pandya’s bowling should be resolved as quickly as feasible. He made it clear that India’s top all-rounder should not bowl in the team’s first two T20 World Cup 2021 games.
Therefore, Pandya has not bowled a single over. For his IPL franchise or his national side since returning from a back injury.
Before India’s warm-up games. The main topic of discussion among cricket analysts was whether Pandya would roll his arm over or not. The Gujarat-born all-rounder, though, has yet to begin bowling in the nets due to precautionary precautions.
“I think we need to put a full stop on Hardik’s bowling discussion. He hasn’t bowled a single delivery, and we are talking about a World Cup. If you look at it from an Indian team point of view, the first two games are of the utmost importance. Because if you win those two, you are on the verge of qualifying with much difficulty. he said
“And in those two matches, you won’t take any chances with a bowler who hasn’t bowled in the nets as well. So 5 bowlers along with Virat with his few overs, it is a good chance to at least toy around with this idea,” the 44-year-old said.
With all-rounder Hardik Pandya is still unavailable for his quota of overs. India’s management has had to think of another bowling alternative.
In the penultimate warm-up game against Australia, Virat Kohli. Who has often led India to victory with his batting prowess? It took on the responsibility of bowling a handful of overs.
According to Deep Dasgupta, allowing Kohli to bowl a couple of overs late. The game might not be a bad idea for the team.
“Because almost every match will be played in a big ground – Abu Dhabi and Dubai. If Virat can bowl two overs in every game, it can be a good option,” Dasgupta added.
Therefore, It’s unclear which combination Virat Kohli would choose against Pakistan in the first match of the T20 World Cup 2021. However, The match will take place at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday, October 24.
