T20 WC 2022: Paras Mhambrey bluntly told the weakness of all the teams, India is facing the brunt of it
Paras Mhambre bluntly told the weakness of all the teams
Said- India is not the only team battling in the death overs
Indian team’s bowling coach is Paras Mhambrey
New Delhi. Bowling coach Paras Mhambrey said on Wednesday that stopping the batsmen in the death overs has become a challenge for all teams and India is not the only team to struggle on this front. India’s team is comfortable chasing the target but when it comes to defending the target, the team seems to be struggling. Apart from this, bowlers are also struggling in the last three overs while bowling first. India conceded 34 runs in the last three overs after restricting Pakistan to 125 for seven in 17 overs at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Even in the Asia Cup, between 16 and 20 overs, the Indian bowlers were dominated by the batsmen of Pakistan and Sri Lanka. “I think the final overs have been a challenge not only for us, but for other teams as well,” Mhambrey said on the eve of the team’s T20 World Cup match against the Netherlands.
The former Test fast bowler said, “Runs were scored against the bowlers in the last match itself and we accept that. It’s been a challenging period and we are ready for it, identifying our bowlers. He said, “It is better to have a first match with a lot of hype and passion in the early stages. Had it been the third or fourth match, it would have had an impact on other matches as well. Fast bowler Arshdeep Singh has been selected to bowl between the 18th and 20th overs but the bowling coach said that plans will definitely change depending on the situation.

“In this format you have to adjust. If necessary, there should be other options – be it fast bowlers or spinners, you should have options when needed. You have to think differently and we have our plans.” Mhambrey lauded Punjab’s Arshdeep for his ability to execute the plans. Mhambrey said, “He (Arshdeep) worked hard during the IPL. He bowls in two different phases – first the powerplay and then the death over. He has the restraint and clarity in his thinking process which he has shown.” Mhambrey feels that Arshdeep’s career will have its ups and downs which will make him stronger.
“He is a wonderful player,” he said. He will go through ups and downs in his career. The way he has come back and his ability to handle pressure is extraordinary. We have great faith in him and he has a good future.” Hardik Pandya bowled four overs against Pakistan and took three wickets. When asked whether the Baroda all-rounder could be used as the fifth specialist bowler, providing an additional batting option in the playing XI. Mhambrey said, “It completely depends on the circumstances. He gives you the option of four overs and has been effective for us. He brings balance. It depends on the team we are playing against.”
The bowling coach said, “When it comes to Ashwin, it’s the opposite, he tells us. It’s like that. Mhambrey said, “He showed wisdom to release that ball (the ball that went wide while facing Mohammad Nawaz in the 20th over). At that time some other player would have played his shot but this is Ashwin. Top player.” Mhambrey hinted that Ashwin has an advantage over leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal due to his superior batting skills when it comes to picking the playing XI. “We have to see the combination-wise what balance he (Ashwin) provides. He also gives you batting options.
