Bumrah will get entry in the team

At the same time, after seeing the condition of the Indian bowlers in the first match of the series, Bumrah’s team return was being considered fixed.
Fast bowling cause for concern for India
His fast bowling is a matter of concern for the Indian team. Team’s experienced fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is unable to walk in the death overs. He handled the ball in the 19th over against Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia but he conceded 49 runs in these three overs. At the same time, Hardik Pandya also could not do anything special. This series against Australia is enough for India in terms of preparations for the T20 World Cup. India is yet to play five matches before the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia from October 22 and in these matches, it will have to overcome all its weaknesses which were also seen in the Asia Cup.
India needs to improve its fielding
Apart from fast bowling, India’s performance in spin too was not special. The team’s main spinner Yuzvendra Chahal did not show good form in Mohali. He has proved to be very expensive in the last few matches. They have to find a way to perform even on those wickets which are not helpful to the spinners. Apart from bowling, India’s fielding was also very poor. He dropped three easy catches in Mohali. For this, former head coach Ravi Shastri also criticized the team. However, in the first T20, India’s attacking batting proved to be excellent, due to which she was able to score 208 runs.
Australia have a chance to win the series
other side Australia He is looking good in every department while his team does not have players like David Warner, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis and Mitchell Marsh. Cameron Green, who was sent to open the innings in Warner’s absence, played his role brilliantly while the experienced Steven Smith and Tim David, playing the first match for Australia, strengthened the team. Matthew Wade lived up to his role of the finisher. He played an important role in Australia’s victory by scoring 45 not out off 21 balls. Australia, however, will have to be more disciplined in their bowling as pacers Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Greene had conceded a lot of runs in Mohali.
