The Indian cricket team has excelled not only in terms of the bat but also with the ball. The perfect Bowling attack which the Indian team possesses has helped the team to reach the horizons of success in World Cricket.
Indian team captain, Virat Kohli has always boasted about India’s bowling attack with pride. And now, adding to Virat’s list is former India opener Virender Sehwag who credited the bowlers for taking the Indian squad to the top of the ladder in the World Cricket. Sehwag believes that the Indian team’s well-balanced bowling department has helped team India to reach the final of the World Test Championship which is slated to be played against New Zealand from 18th June.
“This team has a very good bowling line-up & that is why they have beaten Australia in their home ground twice & now they are No.1 (currently No. 2 in the latest ICC Test Team Rankings” & are also playing the World Test Championship final. There are a lot of batsmen who can score runs, but we cannot forget the bowlers who take 20 wickets & win games for the team”, Sehwag told ANI during the launch of the CRICURU app.
“Indian team has bowlers for every condition,” says Virender Sehwag
Further appreciating the Indian team’s bowling attack, Virender Sehwag said that the best part of the Indian team is that they have bowlers for all conditions. “Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin. The Indian team has a very good bowling line-up & good balance. If the condition supports swing & seam, India has seam bowlers who can take advantage. If there is a spin on offer, they have Ravindra Jadeja & Ashwin to take care of. As a bowling unit, this bunch has done really well & I am pretty confident that they will do well in the final of the World Test Championship”, added Sehwag.
The Indian team is known for having quality batting-attack over the years but the former India opener Sehwag feels that the Indian team has achieved success in Test Cricket consistently in the last few years due to its perfectly balanced bowling department. Sehwag feels that the bowlers deserve to be credited for their efforts because a team cannot become No.1 without a balanced bowling attack. The team needs to have a good batting & bowling line-up to rise up in World Cricket.
Virender Sehwag further said that the credit of a successful team goes more to bowlers than the batsmen because to win a test match or series a team requires scalping 20 wickets. And according to Sehwag, the bowlers of the Indian team have done this in the last few years & that is why the Indian team is ranked No.1 in test cricket.
