Well if Team India has to retain the cricket World Cup title at all, their bowlers have got to perform well. This is what former paceman Javagal Srinath said while sharing his views on Thursday. He said “I am sure they will put their might behind even this time. They have the team. It’s all about getting their act together. If the bowlers do well I am sure the batsmen will definitely perform. It’s a batsmen game by the end of the day. If the bowlers do well I am sure this trophy can be retained by India.”

Javagal Srinath , who is also a match referee added  “Bowling will be very crucial. We need three fast bowlers to do really well. Bowlers win matches on many occasions. I hope Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharama, Mohammed Shami and Stuart Binny put their might behind and do well for the team.”

Replying to a query that whether Indian bowling attack is strong enough, Mr. Srinath said, “We are strong, no doubt about it. There is a decent amount of experience and they have spent enough time in Australia. I think they have understood the conditions better now and they know what to do and I am sure they will do well.”

Expressing the capability of Team India in coping with the pressure he clarified “The last time people said that the country which hosts World Cup, would never win. That was the sentiment that was expressed but I think that has changed. Under pressure India delivered last time. To win the World Cup in India was not that easy. They won many games to become champions.”

Most of the fans of the game strongly believe that it is just a matter of time before our players, especially bowlers, get back their confidence and rhythm; otherwise there is no dearth of talent in Team India. As they say “sky is the limit”. Best wishes!!!
