Assistant India coach Sanjay Bangar feels that Pace attack can be seen as India’s perpetual problem in foreign country but it would be a thing of past feels.
Bangar today said India would be ready for the high profile tour to be followed by the World Cup with their best attack. Umesh Yadav returning into rhythm and Mohammad Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are already in form.
Bangar said that as you must have seen there is a lot of gyration happening. Bowlers like who have had a lot of work pressure like Mohammad Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been paused. The gyration policy is being followed with a purpose that they have an all fit pace bowling attack in Australia.Sanjay added that the development has been spot on and the work pressure is observed carefully. They probably have the best pace attack going into Australia for a number of years then.
Mohammad Shami and pacer Varun Aaron, who is injured are not part of the team, but they are also escorting the side as these bowlers were seen going all out at the net practice on the eve of the 5th and final ODI against Sri Lanka.
India would be playing four Tests beginning 4th December in a tour that would continue till the World Cup in February- March 2015. Sanjay said the duration of the tour would help the side adjust to the conditions properly.The more time India team spend in Australia, the better it is to get used to the pitch, climate, pace and bounce of the wicket. It will help them when they approach a tournament like the World Cup,” Bangar said.
He said Test matches would not be a difficult task after the ongoing One Day International series. Maximum team is playing in both ODI and Test formats of the game so that should not really be a problem.Bangar added that they have been practicing for the longer formats simultaneously with the ODI and T-20 formats. Mohammad Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar like players who are part of the Test team are also practicing with the team. They have been practicing with the Test matches in mind as well.
