Ashish Nehra picks India's bowling line-up for the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia

The Indian team is experimenting with different batting and bowling combinations in order to prepare for the upcoming World Cup. That’s what we saw in the ODI and ongoing T20I series against West Indies. The only purpose is to end that ICC trophy drought for the country. Skipper Rohit has already started to give more chances to the bowlers. Especially, those who are sitting on the bench to get the right combination. However, former Indian pacer Ashish Nehra had his own view on the bowling attack for the upcoming World Cup. 

Ashish Nehra, who is always active and never shy about giving his opinion on Indian cricket, came up with his choice. The former pacer picked his four pacers who should be there with the team as the first choice for the World Cup in Australia. Surprisingly, he hasn’t named the Purple Cap holder and the former DC pacer who showed some great form in the IPL. Nehra said that the team should go with Bumrah, Shami, Siraj, and Prasidh Krishna as their main fast bowling unit. And if required, Deepak Chahar could be the backup pacer for the team.

Mohammed Siraj needs to be picked from the current team – Ashish Nehra

The Men in Blue are playing the T20I series against West Indies. And the team has gone with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, and Mohammed Siraj as their fast bowlers for the series. Jaspreet Bumrah and Mohammed Shami have been given the rest. Nehra said while talking to Cricbuzz that there is still enough time in the World Cup. But if the selectors want to choose the squad for the World Cup. They will go with only one bowler from the current team, and that will be Mohammed Siraj. In his view, Siraj will be more suited to the pitches as compared to Avesh Khan or Harshal Patel.

Ashish Nehra also praised skipper Rohit Sharma for backing up veteran bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Bhuvi seems to be out of his bowling form, but he is a vastly experienced bowler. He further said, “It’s good to see that Rohit Sharma is backing Bhuvneshwar Kumar because he has so much experience.”

Parthiv Patel also expressed his views on the current pace of the Indian bowling attack. Former wicket-keeper batsman said that the team should try Mohammed Siraj or Avesh Khan despite going with Bhuvneshwar and Deepak Chahar. He added because Bhuvneshwar and Deepak Chahar are same kind of bowler. Adding to Siraj and Avesh Khan, he said, “So, this can be tried out. Since we are already exploring the best combination for the World Cup.”
