Indian important pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel will be in India’s T20 World Cup squad. The entire squad was announced on Monday. People have high expectations from these two bowlers. However, they have to put in some effort to sharpen their skills. They have six T20 matches against Australia and South Africa. They will be playing both in the home series that is going to be led by Rohit Sharma.
The first match between India and Australia is set to start on September 20. Both the players didn’t play in Asia Cup due to their injuries. They were at the NCZ for treatment and rehabilitation. Bumrah had his back problems and Harshal had problems in his ribs.
The Asia Cup didn’t see a good performance from the Indian side. This highlighted their significance in the squad.
The players missed their Asia Cup since they weren’t at their best of fitness level. They cleared their fitness tests after which they got a chance in the World Cup squad.
Bumrah is considered to be one of the best bowlers in all the formats. Harshal has also proved his worth to be one of the best bowlers at the death overs for India and his variations had caught the batters on tough grounds. Harshal has had two good seasons in IPL that boosted his confidence. Harshal Patel also has a great ability to bowl during the middle overs.
Jasprit and Bumrah will be playing all the T20 matches in the Australia and South Africa T20 series.
It may be a very confusing situation for both management and the players. They are coming from the inh=jury at the same time playing six matches in a row may take a toll on their body.
