“If Nepal scored 230, imagine what Pakistan will do…”: Danish Kaneria Expresses Concerns Over India’s Bowling Attack

Former Pakistani spinner Danish Kaneria has raised questions about India’s bowling attack as they gear up to face Pakistan in a crucial match during the ‘Super Four round of the Asia Cup. Kaneria’s remarks come in the wake of India’s recent performance against Nepal, where their bowlers struggled to contain the opposition, allowing them to post a challenging total.

India’s recent outings in the Asia Cup have revealed chinks in their bowling armour. In their match against Nepal, the Indian bowlers, missing the services of the world-class Jasprit Bumrah, conceded 230 runs. This performance raised eyebrows and prompted concerns about the team’s bowling strength.

In a recent statement, Kaneria, a former Pakistan cricketer, voiced his reservations about India’s bowling lineup. He expressed surprise that a seasoned bowling unit like India’s struggled against Nepal, a team with relatively inexperienced batting. Kaneria argued that India should have been able to restrict Nepal to a lower total, around 150 runs, given the talent and experience of their bowlers.

Kaneria’s comments take on added significance with the impending clash between India and Pakistan. In their previous encounter, India faced Pakistan and posted a modest 266 runs. However, the match was ultimately abandoned due to rain, leaving fans and experts wondering about the outcome.

Kaneria’s concern extends to the upcoming match, where he speculates on the potential challenges India’s bowlers might face against Pakistan’s batting lineup. He suggests that if Nepal scored 230 runs, Pakistan, with a more formidable batting order, could pose an even greater threat to India’s bowling attack.

“India’s bowling is a sign of concern. Nepal scored over 200 runs against them despite having inexperienced batting. India’s seasoned bowling lineup should have restricted them to around 150. This raises concerns for their match against Pakistan. If Nepal scored 230, imagine what Pakistan will do,” said Kaneria on his YouTube channel.

Kaneria did not limit his critique to the bowlers alone. He also questioned the decision-making of India’s selectors and the captain, Rohit Sharma. He suggested that the selectors may have overlooked India’s bowling difficulties and highlighted the captain’s uncertainty about the team’s ability to defend larger totals on subcontinental tracks. Additionally, he noted that the batting unit appeared to grapple with similar issues.

“It appears that the Indian selectors overlooked India’s bowling difficulties. Additionally, the team’s captain, Rohit Sharma, seems to be uncertain about their ability to defend 300 runs on these tracks. The batting unit also appears to be struggling with similar issues.”

Danish Kaneria’s concerns over India’s bowling performance and team selection highlight the challenges ahead for the Men in Blue as they prepare to face Pakistan. The upcoming match promises to be a pivotal encounter, with the performance of India’s bowlers under intense scrutiny.
