Abhishek Tripathi, New Delhi England’s field is the only where Test batsmen are given patience and bowlers to play aggressively. There is a lot of heat in England at this time, but the mystery remains intact on how a pitch will be played in a Test match starting in Birmingham from August. Many times it has been seen that the host gives surprise pitch to the host country in a Test match, in contrast to the one-day, T-20 and practice match.
Talking about the bowling of the Indian team, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Shami, Jaspreet Bumrah and Shardul Thakur are the fast bowlers, while Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja are the spinners. Hardik Pandya is a part of the team as fast bowling all-rounder. Although Jaspreet Bumrah will not play in the first match due to unfit, India’s biggest swing master Bhuvneshwar Kumar is out of the team announced for the first three matches due to injury. On the bowling of the Indian team in England, Dainik Jagran talked with Chiraman Kuldeep Yadav’s coach Kapil Dev Pandey and Ishant Sharma’s coach Shravan Kumar. Both of them had to say that Indian bowlers should go aggressively to get wickets.
Ishant will be the main bowler
Shravan said that Bhuvneshwar Kumar is not in the team and Bumrah will not play in the first Test match. Ishant will be the main bowler of the team. If there is grass on the pitch then the toss-winning team will benefit. Ishant has played in England earlier too. He is a very experienced bowler and he knows how to bowl. Ishant’s good habit is to adapt himself to the situation and bowl with his mind.
Umesh’s speedy work will come
Shravan said that as far as I know, Shami is not 100 per cent fit. He will be mentally disturbed, not physically. If there is a plan to feed two fast bowlers and all-rounder Hardik Pandya, then Umesh should be given preference to Shami. There is no upper hand in England but there is nothing in it. His batting depends on the batsmen like Root, Moin Ali, Johnny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Alastair Cook, David Malan and Ben Stokes.
Kuldeep will be the trumpet ace
Left-handed batsmen like Sanath Jayasuriya, Saeed Anwar, Adam Gilchrist, Matthew Hayden and Andy Flower have always been involved in the team and in the current Test team of England, left-arm like Alastair Cook, Malan, Ben Stokes, Keaton Jennings and Moin Ali Hand batsmen are involved but against them Chinnaman Kuldeep Trump may prove to be ace.
Spinners have to do this
If the heat gets more and cracks to appear on the pitch then Ashwin and Kuldeep will get bounced. In such a case, the fielder should go to the short leg and silly point to get caught. The good thing is that both of these spinners get a turn. Apart from the root, there are two other players who have played Kuldeep. Cook and the rest of the players will find it difficult to play and understand them.
