ICC World Cup 2015: Nobody Expects My Bouncer to Come so Fast, says Mohit Sharma

Shashi / 09 March 2015

The medium pacer of India, Mohit Sharma has impressed many by his incredible performances in 2015 World Cup so far. In all the four matches, he bowled brilliantly in the middle overs of the innings and has been quite much economical too which is simply brilliant. He has come up to the faith bestowed upon him by the Indian Captain and that has given India an extra advantage in this World Cup.

Mohit has managed to pick up 6 wickets in the four matches where he played and he has been the most economical bowler for India with his economy rate being 3.90.

Mohit also admitted of the fact that the way Shami and Umesh have been bowling in the initial overs has helped his cause to a considerable extent. They have managed to create the pressure up front and he carried on with the  momentum created by them.

Mohit Sharma also surprised the batsmen with his short pitched deliveries and was rewarded with a number of wickets from his bouncers. Mohit said that none expects his bouncer to come so fast and that has given him an extra bit of advantage. He said that his bouncers would generally catch the batsmen off the guard and as a result of which it often results in top edges or to get beaten.

He also admitted of the fact that there has been times when he has got beaten for fours and sixes in his bouncers but that is how the game goes.

Mohit admitted that the bowlers have performed really well so far but still they have scope for considerable improvement as they are yet to be tested in slog overs.

Mohit was included in the squad as a result of the injury inflicted upon Ishant Sharma. Mohit said that the tri nation series has helped him to gain decent amount of experiences regarding the Australian pitches and he has taken the fullest possible advantage of that in the ongoing World Cup.

Apart from bowling brilliantly, Mohit has been also fielding incredibly well and took some great catches in the World Cup so far.

India plays Ireland in their next game on Tuesday and would like to carry on with their winning run.
