Shardul Thakur Believes he Can Help India to Win T20 World Cup 2020
Indian cricketer Shardul Thakur, who was recalled in the team after Bhuvneshwar Kumar got injured last year in the home season, is positive to contribute for the team in the marquee tournament, ICC T20 World Cup 2020.
In the recent past, he had an impressive outing against New Zealand in the T20I series. His bowling attack led the game to super over in the fourth T20I match which India went on to win.
Whereas, the pacer was badly thrashed in the ODI series. He leaked runs and faced criticism from fans as well as cricket pundits. However, the pacer asserts that he will learn from his mistakes and will try to come out as a better bowler.
While he is confident that he can be a game-changer for the team. He now has his eyes set on the showpiece in Australia later this year.
“Certainly I have my eyes on the World Cup. The positivity that I bring into the game and the amount of confidence I have, the way I am passionate about the game will help the team to win the World Cup or at least do the job fairly,” he told reporters here.
“I will study my mistakes and consider them as learning experiences. It was only my first trip to New Zealand and as compared to the other players, I have not played as many games for India.”
“Currently, I am just into that phase where I am gaining experience and going forward, I will try to produce greater contributions for the team’s cause,” he added.
IPL is Important: Shardul Thakur
Thakur said that the popular T20 League will be a good exercise before the mega event. He believes that IPL will give him better momentum to play in further tournaments that are lined up after IPL.
“Definitely, the IPL is important and the momentum we gain from the IPL will be crucial going forward. There is the Sri Lanka T20s coming up and we are going to Zimbabwe after IPL. Then we are playing Asia Cup going into T20 World Cup.
“So whatever momentum we gain from IPL will be important and will be crucial going ahead. We just need to carry (it) forward in the tournaments after IPL,” Shardul said.
Shardul’s secondary batting skills:
The pacer enjoys the place in the team also because of his batting skills. Last year, in the series against the West Indies, he led the team to the finishing point, giving the victory to the team.
“Whenever I am batting at 9/8/7, I can get an opportunity, I have to just go out there, read the situation, play accordingly and score as many runs I can,” Shardul signed off.
Meanwhile, the player is not included in the Test squad for the upcoming series against New Zealand. The first of two Test will get underway on 21st February in Wellington.
