Anyway, it does not seem that the players play in the team. All are celebrities. The more you earn by staying on the field, the more you earn for advertising and as a social media influencer. Crores are also available from IPL. Actually, the world’s biggest T20 league takes place in India. All the fans from all over the world play in IPL. The hidden talent in every nook and corner of the country comes to the fore. It is said that Indian cricket has gone to a different level with the IPL. But the lamp goes dark, see that Team India itself does not have those 11 strong players who can get us the T20 World Cup.
Don’t know playing XI
In their fourth and eliminator match in the tournament, India played a shoddy game against Sri Lanka. The safe total of 173/8 could not even be saved. A ball earlier, the Sri Lankan team full of youngsters had slammed the veterans of India. Once again the left arm pacer troubled our superstars. Left-arm fast bowler Dilshan Madushanka bowled Virat Kohli for zero. India’s powerplay score was 44/2, lower than Sri Lanka’s 56/0. Sometimes Rishabh Pant is out of the team. Dinesh Karthik has to sit outside when he plays, but plays in such a way that there is a demand to bring DK again. Even Ashwin, Chahal, Ravi Bishnoi and Axar Patel were tried, but it is not clear how the playing XI of the World Cup will be?
death bowling scares
In consecutive matches, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has not been at his best in the death overs. Against Pakistan in the Super Four match, Bhuvneshwar conceded 19 runs in the 19th over with just seven left to defend Arshdeep Singh in the last over. Against Sri Lanka, despite India taking four for 13 in the middle overs, Bhuvneshwar conceded 14 runs in the 19th over and left seven runs for Arshdeep in the last over. It is certain that with the arrival of Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel, pace bowling will be much better than now, but it is the biggest risk to assume that Hardik Pandya will do the full 4 overs. Will India go with an effective specialist pacer like Mohammed Shami or Deepak Chahar, who has been ineffective in the comeback so far?
