India are without their two experienced spinners- Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. Both the players were excluded for the limited overs series against Sri Lanka first and then Australia. But the men in blue are not missing them much after what can be termed as a ‘phenomenal’ performance by the bowling unit, especially from the duo- Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. 

Team India’s bowling coach Bharat Arun is very happy with their performance and credits India’s recent success to the versatile nature of the Indian bowlers. He also spoke about the importance of being consistent with the performances.


“This Indian team is blessed with bowlers who are so versatile. The biggest challenge would be to make them perform time and again to maintain the level of consistency. For that I need to create a pool of players, all of whom can come in anytime and do their job,” Arun was quoted by India Today.

“It’s quite a privilege to have bowlers who are so versatile, especially Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar. They are extremely skillful when it comes to death bowling; they have variety and know when to use their skills perfectly to do well in death overs,” he added.

Rotation policy and fair opportunity

The coach added that the management is looking for the perfect combination and it is important for each of the players to get a fair opportunity. He also said that both Jadeja and Ashwin are very much in the scheme of things. “Ashwin and Jadeja have been exceptional spinners, they have done a great job with both the white and red ball. They would definitely be a part of the old setup but it is the team management’s view of giving everyone a fair run and it’s only fair that we give Kuldeep and Chahal a fair run before we decide what kind of combinations we would like for the 2019 World Cup,” Arun said.
