One thing which is true for the Indian setup is that the team has managed to align their bowling lineup in a pretty impressive manner. India might be facing issues with their batting lineup considering the debacle No.4 spot mystery that has still not been solved, the bowling squad of the Men In Blue is very healthy right now.
Talking and praising about the bowling lineup of the team, the former Aussie bowler, Brett Lee said that India has a good pace line up. “India have got a good pace line up,” Lee said.
He further said that this is first time, spectators are witnessing a good pace lineup in the Indian lineup with so many youngsters betting their records and grabbing wickets after wickets. “This is the first time we are seeing some real pace throughout India. They have a lot of youngsters coming through and obviously there are the likes of (Mohammed) Shami and (Jasprit) Bumrah; the Indian bowling stocks right now are very healthy. So as a foreigner coming to your country it is great to see. There is no reason why India can’t dominate world cricket because of their bowling,” said Lee.
Australia are a good team
He even talked about the Australian squad saying that the team has passed the phase of having a torrid outing and can go as far as they want in the World Cup starting from May 30 in England and Wales. Australia who has won the prestigious title five times went forth with no ODI wins from the year 2016 to 2019. They also lost the ODI series to India for the first time in their home grounds. They came to see 2019 having a very decorated career winning back-to-back ODI series against both India and Pakistan.
Talking about the same, Lee said,” They (Australia) are a good team. There has been an injury for one of the fast bowlers — Jhye Richardson is out of the World Cup, but Kane Richardson has been brought in. Look, any side that goes to the World Cup will be very well prepared. It’s all about who adapts well to the English wickets.”
We’ve got to keep in mind what time the tournament will be played
Talking about the wickets, Lee said that people claim it to be a bowler’s wicket but that is not going to be the case since the match is being played in June and July. “We’ve got to keep in mind what time the tournament will be played. It is in June and July and the wickets over there aren’t really conducive to fast bowling at that time of the year. So a lot of people think it will be a bowler’s wicket, but it’s not necessarily the case. I think they will be okay with the brand new ball, but once the shine goes from the ball it’s going to be hard work for the fast bowlers,” said Lee.
