T20 World Cup 2021 India need to find right balance and not rely too much on Jasprit Bumrah Says Muttiah Muralithara

Dubai. Legendary Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan says the Indian bowling attack is more “dependent” on Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya (Hardik Pandya) besides finding the right balance by including a spinner in the ongoing T20 World Cup here. Hardik Pandya) should bowl a few overs. Indian bowlers could not take a single wicket in the opening match of the tournament against Pakistan. This helped Pakistan openers Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam comfortably chase down a target of 152 to register a 10-wicket win over India in a World Cup match.

Muralitharan wrote in his column in the International Cricket Council (ICC), “The team I am concerned about with regard to bowling is India. Jasprit Bumrah is the ‘match winner’ but he seems to be heavily dependent on him in the bowling aspect.” India had fed three fast bowlers against Pakistan, but Muralitharan feels skipper Virat Kohli might consider adding Ravichandran Ashwin in the playing XI as well as get a few overs from all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who was earlier Played completely as a batsman in the match.

He said, “He can play a leg-spinner in the team or maybe Ravichandran Ashwin. With this, one can also depend on Hardik Pandya to bowl with two fast bowlers. Muralitharan, who has 800 wickets in Test cricket and 534 wickets in ODI cricket, said, “It’s just to find the right balance instead of relying too much on Bumrah.”

He said, “However, as far as being in excellent condition is concerned, I think Pakistan is looking good as they have beaten two strong teams in their group, India and New Zealand.” Muralitharan said, “He has immense talent, which he has always been there but like the West Indies, he has had some bad days in the past in which he played very badly.”
