IND VS PAK: Extremely Ordinary Performance: Reetinder Sodhi Slams Team India’s Bowling

IND VS PAK: Reetinder Sodhi, the former Indian cricketer, is not pleased with Team India’s bowling performance against Pakistan on Sunday, September 4. According to Sodhi, the Men in Blue should have guarded the target of 182. The fact that, moreover, ten runs per over were given up by Yuzvendra Chahal, Hardik Pandya, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar ultimately proved to be a deciding factor.

Despite some excellent bowling from Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep Singh, India could not match the brilliance of Mohammad Rizwan and Muhammad Nawaz. Sodhi discussed the one-dimensionality of Team India’s bowling attack on Sunday on a panel on India News Sports. Additionally, he thinks they had no other strategy.

IND VS PAK: “Weakest Performances Ever”: Reetinder Sodhi

Reetinder Sodhi also felt disappointed by Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s last-over bowling. When the surface wasn’t as two-paced as when the two sides faced off on August 28, Pandya continued to knock it short and bowl back of a length. Bhuvneshwar continued to bowl cutters despite having a reputation for nailing his yorkers, and he let up 19 runs in the penultimate over.

In the final over, Arshdeep Singh struck with his yorkers and attempted to snag an unlikely victory, but seven runs were simply too few to hold on to.

IND VS PAK: Lack Of Bowling Options For Team India

When India plays Sri Lanka on Tuesday, September 6, at the Dubai International Stadium, they will look to make amends. For Team India, all of these prompt immediate worries in the short and long term. India does not have a second pacer for the Asia Cup, and even if Avesh Khan recovers from his sickness, the bowling attack is not much more potent.

Additionally, because the present unit lacks fangs, the squad must be concerned about the nightmare scenario of Bumrah and Harshal not recovering in time for the T20 WC. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the team’s most seasoned bowler, gave in 19 runs in the game’s 19th over, while Yuzvendra Chahal conceded 43 runs in his four overs. Chahal had appeared off-color throughout the competition.

He has just one wicket to his name after three games. Hardik Pandya’s inability to match his first game’s brilliance with the ball reminded him that his bowling is still not risk-free. This calls into doubt Rohit Sharma’s selection of Deepak Hooda as a substitute.
