India’s weakness of the fast bowling attack once again came to light during the team’s third T20I game on Australia’s tour of India at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati on 28th November. Australia won the toss and invited India to bat first in their home and the Indian batters did not as they gave Australia a Mammoth target in the 20 overs of 223 runs.
Even though Australia were chasing a huge target and India got three wickets in the last overs of the power play, Australia’s middle-order batter Glenn Maxwell sole-handedly led the team towards victory as the pacers failed to dismiss him.
This was the first time that Indian bowlers failed to defend the target; the same happened during the final match of the ODI World Cup 2023 as well. India’s young squad member Mukesh Kumar missed the game due to his wedding and failed to add his valuable contributions to the team in the game.
Here are three players who can make a good impact on the team with their fast bowling abilities in Australia’s tour of India
1 Arshdeep Singh
India’s young pacer Arshdeep Singh has had a phenomenal performance for the team in the T20 World Cup as well as the Asia Cup 2022 as he consistently gave good economy spells along with some quick wickets in the power play. Singh was recently part of the Asian Games 2023 gold medal-winning squad of the Indian team and could be a good alternative for India to pick against Australia.
2 Mohit Sharma
India’s former one of the core pacers Mohit Sharma could be one of the best picks for the Indian team in the T20I matches against Australia. Mohit has had a stunning comeback in the shortest format of the game considering all his performances in the IPL for Gujarat Titans.
3 Mohsin Khan
The Mumbai Indians pacer Mohsin Khan has recently showcased utmost brilliance in the recent season of the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy as he took 11 wickets in the games with an economy of 5.84. Khan has also taken 14 wickets in the nine games he played in IPL 20 2022. Even though he has missed a lot of Cricket action due to back-to-back injuries, he can be a good pick for the Indian team for bowling toe-crushing yorkers in the death overs.
