After a mediocre campaign in the Asian Cup, the Indian cricket team started their bilateral T20I series against Australia on Tuesday. Despite scoring 208/6 as first batting, India lost the match by four wickets. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4-0-52-0), Harshal Patel (4-0-49-0), Yuzvendra Chahal (3.2-0-42-1), Umesh Yadav (2-0-27-2), Hardik Pandya (2-0-22-0) all leaked runs. Former India player Aakash Chopra believes this bowling lineup has tarnished India’s hopes of winning the 2022 T20 World Cup, which starts in mid-October.

“We say Harshal will be back, Bumrah will come back and everything will be fine. It doesn’t happen like that. This is the sad reality of life. Bumrah was on the Mumbai Indians team, others are not bowling well and see what happens this year happened to MI. In one match you can take five to six wickets, the rest of the days you don’t get that many wickets,” said Aakash Chopra on his YouTube channel.

“I think Indian bowling looks very weak, there are no wicket-taking options in sight. Yuzi Chahal keeps bowling faster. He doesn’t bowl slower. Same was the case in Asian Cup. How do you get wickets when you bowl not slower at all?


“The reality is India has a weak bowling lineup. With this lineup, hopes of winning the World Cup diminish. If you can’t defend 208, it becomes difficult. Remember, this Australian team is without four of its key members. “
