India’s fast-paced attack has been the strongest in the five-match Test series against England since August 4. Fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Siraj can test English batsmen vigorously. However, many former cricketers feel that Bhuvneshwar Kumar should have been included in the squad for the tour of England after the spectacular performance of Team India’s bowlers in the WTC final. Former Pakistani batsman Salman Butt also expressed surprise that Bhuvi is not in the Test squad. Butt said that Bhubaneswar is India’s best swing bowler and he falls in the James Anderson category.

Speaking on the YouTube show CricketBaz, Salman Butt said, “I think Bhuvneshwar Kumar should be in the India team. He is certainly India’s best swing bowler. He didn’t even bring them with him. The kind of swing and seam that the pitch gives, they should be on the team. All bowlers who played in the WTC Final were hit-the-deck bowlers. If we talk about releasing and swinging the ball, Bhubaneswar Kumar falls into the same category as James Anderson. He is such a bowler. So I think he should be on the team, but then again, it’s his team. He knows a lot about the players. Maybe what they chose was the best team for them. But, I had to go here and they had to play Test against England.

Salman said the IPL 2021 will play an important role in the preparation of the T20 World Cup. “The IPL will be held before the T20 World Cup, so Indian players will play there,” he said. Top international players will also be part of the IPL. So everyone gets a great idea about pitch, game plan and average score. Adjusts to all conditions. The conditions are similar to those of Pakistan even though the World Cup is held in India. Let us tell you that Pakistani players do not play in the IPL, but this team has played a lot of cricket in the UAE.
