Australia is attacking with speed, Team India helpless, will have to use big hand to win the series


India-Australia third ODI will be played in Chennai
India will have to adopt Australia’s strategy to win the third ODI

New Delhi. The hope of Team India was that after defeating Australia in Visakhapatnam itself, they would win the series. But, in cricket everything should be as expected, it is not possible every time. Rohit Sharma’s Team India had to face the biggest defeat in their ODI history in Vizag. Australia first bundled out India for 117 runs and then achieved this target in 66 balls without losing a wicket.

In the Vizag ODI, left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Starc wreaked havoc on Team India and broke the back of Indian batting. He did the feat of taking 5 wickets in ODIs for the 9th time. In this match, all 10 wickets of India were taken by Australia’s fast bowlers. Apart from Mitchell Starc, Sean Abbott, Australia gave Nathan Ellis a chance in this match and all the three bowlers troubled the Indian batsmen. Cameron Green played the role of the fourth pacer. That is, Australia attacked India with speed.

Australia attacked with pace in the first 2 ODIs
In the first ODI in Mumbai also, Australia landed with 4 pacers. Marcus Stoinis played in place of Ellis in that match. In that match too, Australia took 4 wickets of India within 40 runs. These four wickets were taken by Australia’s fast bowlers. But, after this, the partnership of Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul avoided the defeat of Team India.

India fielded 3 spinners in the second ODI
There was a lot of rain in Vizag before the second ODI. For this reason the pitch was covered with covers and the conditions were favorable for fast bowling. Seeing this, Australia landed with 4 fast bowlers. But, India landed in Vizag ODI with only two main fast bowlers Mohammad Shami and Mohammad Siraj. While there were 3 spin bowlers in the playing-XI. This decision of the Indian team management was beyond comprehension. Shami and Siraj also failed in Vizag. Shami gave 29 runs in 3 overs and Siraj gave 37 runs. Akshar Patel also took 25 runs in 3 overs.

Umran Malik should be given a chance
In such a situation, if India has to win the series, then in the third ODI to be held in Chennai, Australia will have to engage in the same trick. That is, the pace attack has to be strengthened and this can be done by adding one bowler to the team. He is Umran Malik. Umran bowls continuously at a speed of 150 kmph. Australian veteran Brett Lee himself has advised Team India to feed them.

Brett Lee also advocated for Umran
Brett Lee said on Sports Tak that stormy fast bowlers like Umran are not easily found. In such a situation, India must feed Umran in the third ODI. Lee further said, I like Umran. They must be fed. I say that give Umran a chance in the test as well. I had said earlier also that he should have played T20 World Cup in Australia last year.

‘If the eyes of the batters are not closed, then what is the use of speed..’? Umran should not care, why did the veteran say so?

How is Umran’s ODI record
Umran Malik has played a total of 8 ODIs so far. In this he has taken 13 wickets. His economy rate was 6.45, which would not be considered bad. In such a situation, if India wants to win the Chennai ODI from Australia, then Umran should be given a chance.
