Team India’s leading fast bowlers are performing quite well in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup tournament of 2K15 but they may not have the same effective impact on Australia’s batsmen as the Pakistani left handed fast bowler Wahab Riaz did, the former Indian bowling coach Joe Dawes has said.
The left handed Wahab Riaz well roasted Australia’s top batting order, especially the all rounder Shane Watson, with a menacing spell in the 3rd quarter final at Adelaide Oval stadium in Australia, thereby exposing their susceptibility towards short deliveries bowled at decent pace, a weakness India would have taken note of, Dawes said, but India’s lack of a left-handed fast bowler in their team might not work that well in favour of India.
They will be doing their homework fine and will be giving it a crack nevertheless. Fletcher (Duncan Fletcher) is a pretty strong coach and he will be going through all of these loopholes and he will certainly look to try and bring that in somewhere and give it a whirl at least once, Dawes told Sydney Morning Herald. But the lack of any left-hande fast bowler is a big disadvantage and an issue of utmost concern and that is where the Indians don’t have anyone with real might or worth, or any left-hand bowlers here at the moment.
The 42 wickets shared between India’s pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav and Mohit Sharma is one of the prime reasons for India’s unbeaten run in the tournament. Dawes said that one of them could attempt simulating a left-armer’s angle by bowling round the wicket.
