After the loss of leading pacer Jasprit Bumrah, everyone started expecting Umran Malik in the in the T20 World Cup squad as he provides extra pace and thus would have brought much needed variation in the bowling attack, and Indian team could have used him, if required.

Speaking on the Indian bowlers, former bowling Coach Baharat Arun said the current squad of the Indian team is packed but considering three spinners on the Australian pitch is more than enough, if they would have picked Umran Malik in the team, it would have been great.

“Yes, there is bounce, the grounds are big spinners have a significant role in Australia, but I think three spinners are too many. Because at any given point, you would be playing just one spinner in the team, and you have the choice of two spinners in the side. Three spinners are too many. That’s why I said Umran Malik instead of one spinner would have been a sage move,” he said.

Indian team is set to play their opening encounter of this mega event against their arch-rivals Pakistan on 23rd of October at MCG.
