India vs Australia – “Death Bowling Exposed Again”: Stars Lash Out After Indian Bowlers’ Poor Show vs Australia | Cricket News

Published on


After India failed to defend a 208-run target in the first T20I against Australia, skipper Rohit Sharma did not mince his words in pinpointing the reason for the defeat. “I don’t think we bowled well. 200 is a good score to defend, and we didn’t take our chances in the field. It was a great effort from our batters, but bowlers were not quite there,” he said after India four wicket loss. “There are things we need to look at, but it was a great game for us to understand what went wrong. We know this is a high-scoring ground. You can’t relax even if you get 200. We took wickets to an extent, but they played really well. They played some extra-ordinary shots. If I was in that changing room, I would expect to chase that total. You can back yourself to defend 60 runs in the final 4 overs. We were not able to take that extra wicket.”

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) and Hardik Pandya (2-0-22-0) all leaked runs. Former India players took note of India’s poor bowling effort.

“Saying this again use Bhuvi for only one over in last 5 overs,” Irfan Pathan wrote on twitter after the match ended.

“And our death bowling is exposed again! High time we introspect and correct why are we succumbing under pressure so often. #INDvsAUS,” Amit Mishra, former India spinner, wrote on Twitter.

“I think India have missed a trick by not giving Arshdeep more games to groom in the death overs.  Should give him as many games before the World Cup as possible. #IndvsAus,” Venkatesh Prasad, former India fast bowler, wrote.

The second T20I will be played in Nagpur on Friday.
