Former Indian opener Aakash Chopra has now picked up on the flaws that the Indian team has led to in T20 World Cup. He also added on with a comparison of Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, and Yuvraj Singh, and how these players used to assist striker bowlers of the team. It sparked after India decided to drop Samson from the playing XI, to which Shikhar Dhawan said that there was a need for a sixth bowling option against the ‘Black caps’
He said, “Why do our batters don’t bowl? The likes of Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar used to bowl but now no one bowls. The batters have completely stopped bowling in the nets, they either bat or field and then they leave. So it is a big problem,”
He further added, “Now the Indian team takes four net bowlers along with them everywhere and then there are two who throw with the side-arm. So the bowlers’ batting is improving because they bat against the side-armers, both the batters and bowlers are doing the same thing,” as quoted by Hindustan Times.
Earlier, Wasim Jaffer, the former cricketer also sparked a debate on the same that embarked on several controversies all across.
