In the last few years, the Indian national cricket team has maintained consistent success, especially in Test cricket. Former England off-spinner Graeme Swann recently spoke out the reason why the present Indian team is very attractive on the field.
The 41-year-old Graeme Swann lauded the present Indian bowling attack. The Indian pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav etc. are proving their top qualities again and again in every opportunity, and the spinners are also providing enough support to the pacers. Also, most of the Indian youngsters and new-comers are shining with the ball in hand in international cricket.
This Indian team right now would bowl out any team in the world cheaply with this bowling attack: Graeme Swann
The former off-spinner Swann feels that the present Indian team can destroy any batting line-up and bowl out for the cheap total. He called the current Indian bowling line-up as incredible.
Swann told Sony Ten’s Pit Stop, “I thought it was incredible and I said at the time, this Indian team right now would bowl out any team in the world cheaply with this bowling attack. The way they’re bowling right now, and I stand by that it’s incredible.”
In 2019, after the ICC Cricket World Cup, when the England team was busy in the Ashes 2019, the Indian cricketers were busy in the West Indies and the United States tour, where they participated in the three-match T20I series, three-match ODI series and two-match Test series against West Indies. Indian bowlers dominated in that entire Caribbean tour which helped the visitors to end that entire tour without losing a match.
Swann praised that Indian bowling attack who performed incredibly in that entire West Indies tour. The right-arm pacer Jasprit Bumrah dominated in the Test series as he finished as the most wicket-taker in that series by picking up 13 wickets in two Tests. He even claimed a Test hat-trick during the Kingston Test in August-September 2019.
Swann said, “England were playing the Ashes, they wouldn’t have watched it. We were there and that was an Indian team, an Indian bowling attack in unbelievable form. Jasprit Bumrah was in incredible form in that series.”
At present, the Indian team is the second-ranked ODI team and third-ranked Test and T20I team.
