The Indian team bowling attack might have come under huge censure from all quarters after the 2-0 Test series loss against Australia, but former Australia cricketer Damien Fleming has said that sticking to the present group of bowlers will be favourable in the longer run.

Damien Fleming expressed that he will desire to keep this fast bowling attack together and keep them learning. Ishant Sharma seems like he is starting to be consistent in the field. Damien Fleming added that in case of Varun Aaron and Umesh Yadav, they have two bowlers who can bowl at 90 plus and can swing the ball simultaneously. There are not so many bowlers, who can do that. So he will be looking to play them as much as possible.

Damien Fleming, the cricketer-turned-commentator, was quoted in saying: “Mohammed Shami is handy but he is not one or other, not too fast and doesn’t move the ball too much, he is just about there. And then India have Bhuvneshwar Kumar up their sleeve who is a gifted swing bowler and in the right conditions India will play him,” added the former medium-pacer.

Bowlers like off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami took a bunch of wickets on a couple of events but the scalps came at a price and Damien Fleming suggests that it is time for Indian bowlers pull up their socks.

He thinks their bowlers lack mental toughness. There is a little bit of imperfection in their bowling attack. They want many bowlers to bowl too quickly and that is apparently a generation thing with the recent group of cricketers. Test cricket rewards tolerance and that is missing from their bowling said Damien Fleming.

The Indian bowling attack not only has given too many runs in the 4 match series but also failed to take twenty Australian wickets in any of the matches and Damien Fleming suggests the tourists should have taken a leaf out of the Australian bowler’s book.
