The fast bowlers again disappointed.
India’s fast bowlers, who lost the first T20 due to poor bowling despite scoring 208 runs, looked the same in the second T20, proving costly once again. Harshal Patel, who was expensive in the last match too, was the most expensive bowler in this match by giving 32 runs in 2 overs. He didn’t even get a wicket. Bumrah, brought into the team in place of Bhuvi, dismissed Finch but did not look in his colours. Overall, Team India’s bowling problem remains the same. There is no improvement in the team coming or going.
Could not even save the score of 208.
The level of bowling of the Indian team was judged in the first T20 itself when bowlers like Bhovi and Herschel failed to defend the huge target of 208 runs. Bhuvi has definitely been left out of the playing XI for this match but Harshal Patel’s performance has also been disappointing.
