The Men in blue endured a lowering ten-wicket defeat against Kiwis in the 1st Test Match at the Basin Reserve in Wellington one of the many disheartening takeaways from the loss was the absence of sharpness from the Indian pace assault particularly Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.
The Indian bowlers have risen to be truly outstanding in contemporary cricket. The trio of Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, and Jasprit Bumrah have hoodwinked batting units overall conditions in the two years thus when India was bowled out for 165 in their initial innings, everyone’s eyes were on the trio to imitate the strokes performed by their opposite peers Trent Boult, Tim Southee, and Kyle Jamieson.
Be that as it may, excepting Ishant, who was just as sharp, Bumrah and Shami neglected to get their radar directly on a predictable premise as the hosts recouped from 7-225 to take their lead.
The Former cricketer-turned-Commentator Sanjay Manjrekar took to Twitter where he expressed his disappointment through a tweet.
The Captain of the ship Virat Kohli had said that he isn’t bothered by the disappointing exhibitions of the pace-unit as per him one terrible day in the workplace doesn’t mean the apocalypse.
In the meantime, the Indian pacers will be striving to demonstrate that Wellington was only a variation when they took the field in the second Test on February 29.
