The currently ongoing indvsausT-20 series bought lot of joy and hopes for Indian fans as India crushed Australia by runs in 2nd ODI to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series, This victory could not have come at a better time for this Indian team’s confidence as they were recently drubbed 4-1 by the same opponent in ODIS, and beside it also gave the team much needed practice before the T20 world cup. This series had a lot positives for Indian team, lets have a look at the top 5 positives things for the India.
1-) Jasprit Bumrah- The debutante was more than impressive in the first two match and has managed to caught the eyes of every one. With his unique action and deadly yorkers he is one of the biggest positive to have come out of the series for the indian team. In the first match he returned with a figure of 3/23 while in the second match he had a figure of of 2/37. Former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar praised the young bowler saying The action is a help. The batsmen will take a little time to get used to the action. But length is good, he is bowling yorkers, he is bowling those fuller length under the bat deliveries, which the other bowlers haven’t bowled.” He further added “I think that is what that the other experienced bowlers, who have been to Australia keep on making the same mistake over and over again, had done then they would have got results. So my honest advice to these experienced bowlers would be to watch Jasprit Bumrah bowl, see the length he is bowling and that is what you need to do when the batsmen are looking to slog you,”
2-) Batting form of India’s top 3- One more good thing that we saw in the series was the batting performance of India’s top 3 batsmen. Virat Kohli is in sublime form and is not only scoring runs but also scoring them quick. He scored 90 and 59 in the two innings. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are also in great touch and have been scoring runs and providing good start to India. Overall the top order looks steady and one would expect them to be a key factor in the forthcoming worldcup.
3-)Spinner’s Performance-Both Ravi Chandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja are bowling well and this will bring lot of hopes for Indian fans. With The World Cup scheduled in India where spinners will play a crucial rule in deciding the results of the match, we are glad to see both the spinners in top form. Also yesterday we saw Yuvraj Singh Bowling well which is one more plus point for India.
4-)India’s fielding- One more thing that impressed us was the Indian side fielding effort in the 2 matches, which was great to say the least, we saw some brilliant catches and fielding effort throughout the series.
5-)Dhoni’s Captaincy and Team Chemistry- Dhoni’s captaincy impressed everyone in this series, his sharp decision and clever rotation of bowlers was one of the reason why India managed to restrict the Australians in the run chase. And beside that the team is looking to have found the right combination with perfect balance between youth and experience. The team has just the right amount of senior players and they are well complemented by the new kids on the block.
