Indian fast bowling attack revolves around Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Apart from these two fast bowlers, India do not have any 3rd or 4th specialist proper seamer who can take over the attack in the absence of two Indian premium fast bowlers. India tried many new faces like Siddharth Kaul, Deepak Chahar in England tour.But none of these two fast bowler able to left any mark on the series.However India gave Deepak Chahar only one match in that series,he should have get more oportunity to play for India.But Selectors decided to look at new faces and they picked left arm Khaleel Ahmed in the team.The 20 year old fast bowler performed well in the match against Hong King and took 3 wickets by giving 48 runs in 10 overs.
Indian bowlers overall perforrmed well but one name that dissapointed everyone was Shardul Thaku. Mumbai fast bowler looked clueless against Hong kong, to adding to that he bowled three no balls in one over. shardul had started his career on high where he picked 4 wickets in his debut. but since than he could only managed to pick 1 wicket in his last 5 ODI that he played for India and his economy rate is also very high.
So the question arrise why India picked Shardul Thakur in the Squad for Asia Cup.Because he didn’t gave any exeptional performance in any of the tournament he played including IPL. Whereas India have good lot of some serious fast bowling talent. deepak Chahar,Ankit Rajpoot and Avesh Khan are some name who are performing well for India A. Even though India are sticking with Shardul Thakur. It is now high time for the Team in blue to star grooming some other fast bowler. so that if any injury concerm occurs to any of those two fast bowlers, India should have other quality fast bowlers to replace them in the World cup team.
