Ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup in October-November, Team India led by Rohit Sharma will face Australia in a three-match T20I series, which begins on Tuesday in Mohali. It will be interesting to see if the home team perseveres with the test that was shown in the Asian Cup, where the team failed to reach the final. As India has named teams for the T20 World Cup and series against Australia and South Africa, BCCI has announced “Hardik PandyaArshdeep Singh and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will report to the NCA on air conditioning work during the home series against Australia and South Africa. “
Arshdeep will not play in the series against Australia while Hardik and Bhuvneshwar will not play in the series against South Africa. Before the series between India and Australia, Gautam Gambhir and Matthew Hayden addressed a press conference held by the Star Sports Network where they talked about what to expect.
“If Shami starts to perform really well, there will be a lot of question marks for the pickers as to why he didn’t get on the plane to Australia. And imagine if Arshdeep, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasipino Bumrahor Harshal Patel, if one of these people had a bad day, there would be more question marks. So go with your chosen ones regardless of whether they are doing well or not. I know it was very difficult for Mohammed Shami, but nonetheless it was very difficult for him as he was not selected for the World Cup 15 squad,” Gambhir said at the press conference.
“So if you pick him in the XI squad before any other man is going to get on a plane to Australia, it doesn’t make any sense to me. He should only be back up if someone has a record. chance or injury and one of these guys. isn’t available and you have to pick three fast pitchers. If not, there’s going to be a lot of criticism and I’m sure the pickers won’t take that risk.” , he added.
While answering a NDTV question on whether Shami should be in India’s World Cup squad, Hayden said: “When you look at someone like Shami, he has any surprises. What is it that Australian cricket doesn’t know or has never seen before?Yes, he is an excellent cricketer and he has the ability to catch the ball But is he as good as someone like Jasionary Bumrah ? And I think it’s too easy to think about the glass being half full but you have to get back to yourself.”
“It’s a thing that’s happening around the Australian cricket team regarding Aaron Finch. It’s all about that squad, when you cross that line, think we’ve got this. This is our team, we’re sure of that,” he added.
India vs Australia T20I will be available from September 20 to September 25 on Star Sports Network.
