Why Shardul Thakur over Umran Malik? Paras Mhambrey says Shardul provides depth to India’s batting | Cricket Information – Occasions of India

RAIPUR: Within the T20 World Cup in Australia final yr, India had been extensively criticised for taking part in R Ashwin and Axar Patel over leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal as each Ashwin and Axar can bat a good bit.
It was a technique that finally appeared to have harm India within the semifinal on a flat wicket at Adelaide, as England coasted to a 169-run chase with out loss.
India would need to keep away from an analogous destiny within the 50-over World Cup in India later this yr. Preferring to beef up their batting down the order, they’re experimenting within the ongoing ODI sequence towards New Zealand at dwelling by sacrificing a real tempo bowler in Umran Malik for an allrounder in Shardul Thakur.
Thakur is an trustworthy trier-it was he who finally dismissed Michael Bracewell (140) within the closing over within the opening ODI at Hyderabad with a yorker on leg stump.

Malik’s absence, although, has left the assault with out that ‘X’ issue when it comes to sheer tempo, with solely Siraj offering it with some spark. Although he has received a few Assessments towards Australia and England with heroic half-centuries, Thakur hasn’t been at his finest with the bat within the ODIs. Within the final 5 ODIs, Thakur’s scores have been 2, 7 & 3 (vs Bangladesh) & 3 (vs New Zealand).
In 32 ODIs, the Mumbaikar’s common is nineteen.50, with only one fifty. Thakur is a much better batsman than these numbers present him to be, however are India compromising a missile for a pistol?
Defending the choice to play Thakur forward of Malik as a result of former’s batting expertise, India’s bowling coach Paras Mhambrey mentioned, “That’s (his batting) is one of the reasons, the way he bats, Shardul adds batting depth to the team as an all-round option. He has performed very well for India in the past. That decision (choice between Malik and Thakur) depends on the surface also. You look at your combination depending on every surface.”

Nevertheless, the Indian group administration appears to be happy with the 150-plus tempo choice that Malik brings to the desk.
“The way he (Malik) has progressed, it is very heartening to see. Pace does matter and adds a different dimension to the attack. The decision of playing him will depend on the surface and requirement of the team combination. He is very much in the scheme of things as far as the ODI World Cup is concerned. He adds a lot of value to the team,” Mhambrey mentioned.
Maybe, India are attempting to repeat the Kiwi template right here. Throughout their wonderful 162-run partnership for the seventh wicket within the opening ODI at Hyderabad, Michael Bracewell and Mitchell Santner confirmed how New Zealand have super batting depth until No 8.
‘Siraj has remodeled his expertise into white-ball cricket’ Complimenting Mohammed Siraj for his current performances, Mhambrey mentioned, “I’m extremely happy with the way he’s performed. I have seen him from the India A set up. He did exceedingly well with the red ball. He has transformed his skills and experience into white-ball cricket. He used to get the ball in but has worked on his seam position to get the ball away.”
