Ashish Nehra could earn a place in Indian squad for ICC World Cup 2015

Shashi / 17 October 2014

Ashish Nehra, the adept India left arm pacer might get another opportunity to play for national team. All the current medium pace bowlers, who are continuing in the current Indian team are right hand bowlers, so to add diversity and keeping Nehra’s experience in mind, selectors might add him in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. According to a report published in a renowned newspaper, the Indian team management is recently looking for eligible candidates in the bowling department.

India needs a skilful bowler who can handle high pressure situations. And that is the main reason Ishant Sharma was drafted back into the One day International (ODI) squad for the current series against the West Indies. “The bowling lacks experience. That is why Ishant has been brought back. They are looking out for options, the source informed Times of India.

Nehra bowled quiet well in recently concluded Champion’s League T-20 (CLT20) for Chennai Super Kings (CSK). His ability to swing the new ball and his capability to bowl in death overs can go in his side. Considering his recent form, Nehra has not played for India since 2011 World Cup, but he could be a good bet for the role of the senior pacer. The only matter is his fitness. a BCCI official said that it remains to be seen if he can bowl ten overs with the same kind of momentum he did during recent T20 matches.
