Like England, India easily beat Australia in the T20 World Cup practice match. The team registered a one-sided victory by nine wickets against the Kangaroo team on the basis of top order batsmen. During the Australia innings in this match, everyone was shocked when Virat Kohli started bowling. In front of batsmen like Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell, Virat bowled well and conceded 12 runs in 2 overs. Rohit Sharma, who was made the captain in this match, took this decision to find the option of the sixth bowler. Anyway, the team is upset with star all-rounder Hardik Pandya not bowling.
On Hardik’s bowling, Rohit said at the time of toss that Hardik has not started bowling yet. He said, ‘Hardik is recovering fast and is expected to be seen bowling soon.’ Rohit further said, ‘We have a great bowling attack, but it is also important to have the option of the sixth bowler. So, the bowling options we have in our batting order, we will try them in the practice match against Australia.
Bhuvneshwar-Chahar make a great comeback
In this practice match against Australia, India’s bowling was correct in many ways. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who was heavily robbed in the last match, bowled tightly in this match and took one wicket for just 27 runs in four overs. Apart from this, the team’s star off-spinner R Ashwin bowled just two overs, where he took big wickets in the form of David Warner and Mitchell Marsh with the new ball. Apart from this, Rahul Chahar, who was beaten in the last match, also gave only 17 runs in three overs. In this match, however, Varun Chakraborty proved to be expensive and he conceded 23 runs in two overs.
