The Men in Blue are in preparation for the World T20 are in full preparation i order to bring back the trophy home. Indian team are trying various combination and various players who could be useful for the team in the coming world cup.

India who won the first edition of the T20 world cup have failed to win any other T20 World cup only reaching the finals in 2014 and reaching the semifinals in 2016.

Indian team hasn’t had the best times when it comes to T20 cricket even though the team has one of the greatest leagues and players who have played very well for the Indian team and are specialists in the shortest format of the game.

India had a very good outing against the islanders Sri Lanka in Indore after the first T20I was washed out in Guwahati. India won the toss and elected to field. The Indian bowlers bowled in the right areas putting pressure on the islanders and restricted them to 142 in 20 overs.

The Indian openers set the tone for the Indian team as KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan put up a partnership of 71 and then Virat and Shreyas Iyer finished the game for the Indians.

Kohli was in praise of the bowlers especially Navdeep Saini and Jasprit Bumrah who where making a comeback into the international circuit.

“Navdeep has come into the ODI circuit as well; he is gaining more confidence in T20 cricket. You can really see him letting himself go. When he does that, he can clock those speeds which he did. It’s great to see him getting people out with yorkers and bouncers and with pace. It’s a really good sign for the team. Really pleased to have Jasprit back in the side. He’s bowling with pace again,” Kohli said. 

Speaking about the combination and the players in radar Kohli said that one bowler he has been looking fr is Prasidh Krishna who has been i the team radar for sometime now. The Karnataka bowler has been in the radar for sometime now and is known for his smart bowling and is known to generate pace and bounce from the track.

“You’ll have to figure out who are the people that are very similar in their bowling skills, and you pick the senior one. I think one guy will be a surprise package going to Australia, someone who can bowl with pace and has bounce. Prasidh Krishna has done well in the domestic arena as well. This group of bowlers, it is a great luxury to have in all formats. Looking at the big World Cup, we have enough options,” Kohli concluded.
