So guys today's topic of discussion would be the India vs Pakistan final. All the Indian fans must be wondering what wrong happened with our team in a span of 3 weeks.
So let's start what according to me went wrong in the final. . . .
1)Toss: Although we have a good batting lineup and we are good chasers, according to me batting first could have been a good option. The Indian batsman could have made use of the hard batting pitch at the oval. Knowing that Pakistan have good pacers like Amir and Junaid we should have thought that if there is a steep target these bowlers weren't gonna deliver freebies. And lastly FINAL: PUT THE RUNS ON THE BOARD.
2)Ashwin: I wont criticise our no. 1 spinner currently but I felt ashwin bowled a lot of negative lines in the match. Middle and leg stump were the areas where the ball pitched. He looked he was defensive in his approach. He was worried about going for runs. Yes the wicket was flat, but I don't think resorting to negative lines would have helped.
3)Bowling combination : Against an in form openers I felt we missed the services of Umesh Yadav who could have been a handy death bowler too! I believe Bumrah is best suited for middle overs and Umesh and Bhuvi should have been given the new ball.
4)Format players: This is an out of the box idea. Look at England they don't play Anderson or broad in there limited overs. They remain fresh for longer formats. While we play the same set of players for all formats. Ashwin hasn't been able to perform in ODI's off late. Why don't we try Kuldeep Yadav for limited overs and Ashwin for longer formats. If Shami is prone to injuries we can preserve him for tests and give chance to Shardul Thakur or any other players. I think Rotation policy is something which the BCCI should think if.
This is not a criticism of our team. I'm a well wisher of Indian Cricket and I've expressed my views.
