India – From dream team to dream on team!!
Before the start of World Cup 2011, a much talked subject was the probability of India to be the dream team to win the World Cup 2011. Too much hype, as always, has been given to India this time too.
To the contrary, the expectation of the dream team is being considered as the dream. A dream to win the world cup 2011.
Surprisingly, the team, as it looks on the paper, is very strong , confident and a surprise package for many. Indeed, the batting has shown us the phenomenon reality of the paper team on the field. But when it comes to the bowling, the confidence takes a dip in the doubt pond!
Even as India rushed to the towering score of 370, Bangladesh managed to put up a considerable score of 283. Even when the sports expert were commenting on the loose end of bowling talents in the team, India vs England match proved to be an eye opener. A team which could not stand in front of Ireland actually brushed up the bowling side of Indian Team with a tie match.
The matter lies in the effective decision to let play the relevant and authentic pressure handling bowlers who can bring back the form of Indian bowling team in next coming matches. Without a devastating and aggressive bowling side, the match cannot be played with an intention to rely whole heartedly on batsmen.
Its high time for Indian bowling team to realize what lies in their pocket. Arms for destruction or arms for self-destruction!
