The ICC T20 World Cup, n-2022, will be played in October and November in Australia. BCCI has announced Team India for this tournament. Looking at the list of players included in this team, many reactions are also coming. Former Australia fast bowler Mitchell Johnson has said in his latest statement that India has taken a big risk in the selection of the team.
Mitchell Johnson said that the conditions suggest that there should have been at least one more fast bowler in Team India. Significantly, the cricket world was being surprised about the absence of Mohammed Shami in the main team of 15 players. However, Mohammed Shami has been kept in the standby players of the Indian team.
The main team consists of Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel and Arshdeep Singh, a total of 4 fast bowlers. But, former Australia’s famous fast bowler Mitchell Johnson (Mitchell) Johnson), from the point of view of Australia’s grounds and conditions, faster bowlers should have been in the team.
Mitchell Johnson said, “In Australia, if you have one pacer-all-rounder and few spin bowlers, it is risky to have 4 fast bowlers in the team. Perhaps India wants to play with 2 fast bowlers and 1 all-rounder (Hardik Pandya) and 2 spin bowlers. But, in Australia you need at least 3 pacers, especially in a situation like Perth, you may need 4 fast bowlers.
Johnson said that only Jasprit Bumrah is among the aggressive fast bowlers of the Indian team, who can bowl at a speed of 140 km / h with consistency. But, for the deadly pacer attack in the team, only the speed of the bowling cannot be the measure of the attack. You need bowlers who support each other.
He turned the page of the history of the Australian team, taking the example of Ryan Harris and Peter Siddle, saying that there was a great synergy between each other in the Ashes Series 2013-14. At that time there was a lot of talk about my pace bowling, but then I had the support of Peter Siddle and Ryan Harris from the other end. These bowlers could also bowl at a speed of 140 km / h. This is the reason that balance is created in the team.
Mitchell Johnson further said that Australia’s pitch has extra bounce and pace. In view of this, it is necessary for any team to have a pacers attack squad.
