Currently, the Indian cricket team is on a tour of the West Indies. At the start of the tour, the team is playing a two-match Test series. Mohammad Siraj, Jaydev Unadkat, Mukesh Kumar and Shardul Thakur are the young bowlers in this team. Sanjay Manjrekar, a former cricketer of the Indian team and a famous commentator, has given an advice to the Indian team. He said that Umran Malik should be included in India’s Test squad.
Jasprit Bumrah missed the West Indies tour due to injury and Mohammad Shami due to rest. In this case, the young bowlers will carry out this responsibility. For quite some time now, Indian bowlers have been seen failing to dismiss the opposition’s bottom batsmen. Therefore, the opposition team succeeds in building a big score. Manjrekar mentioned Umran as an alternative to the problem. He said,
“Indian team management should give Umran a chance in Test team rather than ODI and T20 team. Because in Test cricket there is always a need to take 20 wickets of the opposition team. We fail at this sometimes. If Umran is given a chance, he can be as beneficial as England’s Mark Wood.”
Mark Wood was seen playing in the third Test of the ongoing Ashes series. He consistently bowled more than 150 in this match and made Australia’s batsmen jittery. Umran can also bowl like this consistently. Although he has made his ODI and T20 debut for India, he is far from the Test team. He will also be seen playing ODI and T20 series on West Indies tour.
