Irfan Pathan Remarks On Indian Lineup: Kohli, Rohit, Suryakumar Under Fire

Indian Lineup

There are 20 teams who are fighting in the current T20 World Cup. The campaign for the T20 World Cup favorites, the Indian cricket team, is going to start. As a result, there are various former players who are giving their opinions on the lineup of the Indian team for the upcoming tournament. In a recent interaction, Irfan Pathan said that India should go for someone who can bat and ball.

He even said that Virat, Rohit, and Suryakumar Yadav could become a handicap for the national team. It is because of their inability to bowl.

He said that having all-rounders in the team will be an advantage for the World Cup. He further claimed that other teams like England already have Will Jacks and Livingston who can ball when required.

He further claimed that someone like Shivam Dube would be a good addition to the team. He is a player who can bowl if the team needs him to. He further added that someone like Jaiswal, who can bowl, can also be a good option. He is one of those players who has not been able to bowl in the international matches.

He further added that Hardik Pandya and Shivam Dube should step up to their respective roles. So, they will be able to provide a good balance to the team. He added that someone like Akshar Patel could also add some depth to the batting lineup along with his exceptional bowling skills.

So, it has become a talking point for several explanations. Even Sanjay Manjrekar pointed out that even the Australian team also has players like Glen Maxwell and Cameron Green. He said that these players can bowl 3 to 4 overs when needed. So, it will be beneficial for India to take up someone who can actually provide them with the option of an extra bowler.

So, it will be engrossing to see the final 11 of the team. The first match of the Indian cricket team is against Ireland on the 5th of June. It will be played at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in the US. The place has a seating room for almost 35000. It will be the first instance that the T20 World Cup will be played on US soil.

This clash will lay the foundation for the approaching exciting encounters of the Indian team. It is on the basis of the fact that the World Cup has already witnessed the first Super Over. It was between Namibia and Oman. In the match, Namibia was able to register their first win with 11 runs.
