Former Indian batsman subramaniam badrinath has told about the biggest weakness of the Indian team. According to him, there is a shortage of part time bowlers in the Indian team at this time. None of the batsmen in the top order bowls.
During a chat on Star Sports Tamil, subramaniam badrinath pointed out this lack of Indian team. He reminded that almost all the players bowled under the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly and that was the greatest feature of that team.
If we look at the current Indian team, players like Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer do not bowl at all in the top order. This is the reason that when a bowler of the team proves to be very expensive, then the captain has no other option.
Subramaniam Badrinath said about this, “None of the top 5 or top 6 players are bowling right now. If you pick up the old Indian team, almost all the players bowled in it. Be it Sehwag, Sachin or Then why not be captain Sourav Ganguly. These top order batsmen could bowl 3-4 overs if needed. You could manage 10 overs by mixing these players and if there was no bowler’s day, then the captain There was no need to worry. This thing is lacking in the Indian team right now.
