The game against South Africa was meant to be the team’s warm-up day ahead of the World Cup, but Bumrah’s absence has raised many questions for head coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma. Mohammad Chiraj and Umesh Jadhav have been included in the squad but the pair are not in the World Cup squad. The most pressing question is whether Bumrah’s induction into the team management has been enough to give Karibalgia a chance to speak.
World Cup standby veteran fast bowler Mohammad Shami is recovering from Covid-19 but has not been included in the squad for the series against South Africa. They may also include Australian Joa Dahl as they have experience playing the game.
India have Deepak Chahar fit for the World Cup for the South Africa series. In the first opener in Trivandrum, young left-hander Arshdeep Singh tore through South Africa’s top order with some fine bowling as India took a 1-0 lead in the series. But the ball will not be chewed in Australia and the tea will also be called Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Bhubaneshwar, Arshdeep Sait has secured a place in the World Cup squad. The Chiraj field has also been struggling for some time. Bhuvneshwar and Harshal Patel are said to be spending big and the team management committee will have to sort this out before the World Cup.
