In T-20 format of cricket containment carry more weight and Team India is having the weapon of harassing the opposition with spin. With matches being played in India, the chances of R. Ashwin and others might accomplish Dhoni’s dream of winning yet another World Cup in our backyard. The expectations are very high we hope to do an encore in the T-20 World Cup now underway. The batting revolves around Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina and the bowling is in the safe hands of Ashwin, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah. But fielding is the weak point of the team. We have to wait and see how the middle and slog overs are going to be bowled as the off-spinner completes his quota of overs before 12th over. The team has good depth and Rahul Dravid felt but the problems with top order continue and put pressure on lower order batsmen. The left right combination should click to put up a brave show from the beginning. The middle order seems to shaky at times but slowly and steadily it is trying to come good against the new ball. In all T-20 cricket is a question of who is having a better day to chase or defend a moderate or a big total. Pink of health of Indian cricket team is a good sign on the T-20 circle in the last 10 matches for the home team and the Blues are flying high.
