Former Australian pace bowler and recent mentor at Chennai’s MRF Pace Foundation Glenn McGrath said that Indian bowling attack one of the most strong among the team taking part in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.
Indian bowling weapon like Pacers Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, R Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah and Umesh Yadav and weapon spin attackers with all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Yuvraj Singh and Ravindra Jadeja.
All these pace-spin bowlers McGrath sees a good combination of the Indian squad for the Champions Trophy.
When asked by TOI, McGrath said “Some of the Indian bowlers are top-class and they have really done well in the last two-three years. I think India have got one of the most potent attacks in the Championship and the pace-spin combination will provide them with an edge over other teams.”
Yorker specialist like Jasprit Bumrah, McGrath has learned lots from him on his bowling style as perfect for shorter formats. He is to be important for Team India during death overs and he interested watching him deliver.
McGrath said “Getting accustomed to the England conditions will also be a big challenge. It’ll be interesting to see how he bowls at the death. He is a quality pacer and I hope he continues to improve.
The first match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 will face between England and Bangladesh on Thursday. India will start their opening match on Sunday against Pakistan.
