As the 20-20 world cup kicks off today, all eyes are set on the Indian cricket team. Will Dhoni triumph or will Afghanistan upset India on their first appearance. We as Indians expect our side to win, but the bowling seems to be on the weaker side.
Our hope Virender Sehwag is not playing & there would be a lot of pressure on Murali Vijay. He has shown how aggressive he can get in the IPL. Suresh Raina has been promising since a long time & he can play as per the demand of the situation, he takes no time in switching gears. Gautam Gambhir has been the new Mr Dependable, he still looked out of form in the IPL. Yusuf Pathan needs to be firing if India wants to get any closer to the trophy. Yuvraj Singh is unstoppable when he gets going, but the problem with him at the moment is his form, he has not been able to convert the 20’s & 30’s into some bigger knocks.
India might play with only three genuine bowlers as the team has a lot of bowling options present in Raina, Yuvraj & Yusuf. But the problem is except Zaheer Khan no other Indian bowler is in form at present. Dhoni will want to play Nehra as the other two options are Praveen Kumar & Vinaykumar. Harbhajan would be the lead spinner, maybe Chawla gets a game.
My wishes are as always with Team India as they are going to enjoy the best of cricket in the carribean. Hope they get a chance to beat pakistan somewhere in the tournament.
All The Best!
