It is known that the BCCI has announced the Indian cricket team for the T20 World Cup. India will play the first match of the Super 12 against Pakistan on October 23. However, BCCI has selected three spinners in the Indian team. It is known that Ravichandar Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal and Akshar Patel have been selected by BCCI. But Bharat Arun, the former bowling coach of Team India, responded to this. He feels that three spinners are too many. Instead of three spinners, it would have been better if another fast bowler was selected in their place. India’s 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup looks solid, but former cricketers have been voicing their differences over the selection. Bharat Arun, the former bowling coach of Team India recently responded that three spinners are too many, because only one of them will be in the playing eleven at a certain time, Bharat Arun asked the selectors to take pacer Umran Malik to Australia instead of three spinners.
Speaking about Team India’s pace bowling unit, Bharat Arun said that Umran Malik can do well in the T20 format if given the right field. He said that the grounds in Australia will be bigger and the team would have benefited if the fit Umran Malik was selected in this order. Umran Malik bowled well in IPL depending on the right field. Considering the wickets in Australia, he said he felt more spinners were picked in the team.
A player like Umran Malik is a great fill-up for the team, Bharat Arun expressed his opinion during a discussion on a TV program. He believes that Umran Malik should be included in the team instead of three spinners. Team India’s loss of Jasprit Bumrah has further weakened the Indian pace bowling department, he said.
