After a lacklustre marketing campaign within the Asia Cup, the Indian cricket group began their bilateral T20I collection in opposition to Australia on a shedding observe on Tuesday. Regardless of scoring 208/6 batting first, India misplaced the match by 4 wickets.

Former India participant Aakash Chopra feels that with this bowling line-up, India’s hopes of successful the 2022 T20 World Cup, that begins in mid-October, has been dented.
“We’re saying that Harshal might be again, Bumrah might be again and every part might be alright. It doesn’t occur that approach. That is the unhappy actuality of life. Bumrah was within the Mumbai Indians group, others didn’t bowl effectively and see what occurred to MI this 12 months. In a single match you possibly can take 5 to 6 wickets, in the remainder of the times you will not get that many wickets,” Aakash Chopra said on his YouTube channel.
“In response to me, Indian bowling is wanting very weak, no wicket-taking choices are in sight. Yuzi Chahal continues to bowl quicker. He isn’t bowling slower ones. The identical was the case in Asia Cup. How will you get wickets should you do not bowl slower in any respect?
“The fact is that India have a weak bowling line-up. With this line-up, hopes of successful the World Cup turn into much less. If you cannot defend 208, then issues are going to be troublesome. Keep in mind, this Australian group is with out 4 of its most important members.”
