India require firepower in terms of finishers for T20 World Cup, opines VVS Laxman 
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Former Indian Test batsman VVS Laxman has asserted that India will need to add up strength in terms of finishers which is an area of concern for the T20 World Cup to be played later this year. He also added that Men in Blue's death bowling is also concerning and that they need to address it.Over the years, India have had their issues in terms of power hitters who can finish with a flourish at the end in white-ball cricket. After the retirement of wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni, India have been left with only Hardik Pandya who can finish the innings in an able manner. Though Ravindra Jadeja did well in the finisher's role on the Australia tour, it's still early days for him and he needs to do it more often. While Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik are two other players, who have the ability to finish with a lot of firepower only if they get enough chances in the side.Former Indian batsman VVS Laxman has opined that finishers role is one of two areas that India need to fill as he doesn't see any able finisher apart from hard-hitting all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who had a great limited-overs series in Australia. “As far as the T20 World Cup is concerned, the balance of the squad is very very important. There are two areas where India really requires firepower. Number one is the finisher. We depend overly on Hardik Pandya. Apart from Hardik Pandya, I don’t see anyone else who can play that finisher’s role,” Laxman said on Star Sports' chat show Cricket Connected, reported HT. T Natarajan has emerged as a great option for death overs after he was able to nail yorkers in the 2020 IPL that helped him get a place for Australia where he did well. But he's highly inexperienced at the moment while regular injuries have kept Bhuvneshwar Kumar out of the Indian team.Laxman feels that India will need to address their death bowling woes heading into the T20 World Cup which will be held this year in India, later. “And in the bowling department, who along with Bumrah can bowl those death overs," Laxman asked."We have got options in Natarajan or Bhuvneshwar Kumar. But that is one area in the bowling department which Virat Kohli requires to address,” he added.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Rishabh Pant has become more mature; aware of his shortcomings, backs VVS Laxman
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After Rishabh Pant’s 91, VVS Laxman has backed the southpaw, stating that Pant has become more mature with every passing Test match and insisted that he is now aware of his own shortcomings. He also added that an attacking Pant changed the field for Cheteshwar Pujara to get the singles.Rishabh Pant’s partnership with Cheteshwar Pujara was forged with both ice and fire. While at one end, there was Pujara, who brought the ice part - with his calm and composed defensive batting, there was Pant on the other hand, who wanted to split the gaps. The southpaw successfully put more pressure on the English bowlers, smashing them to all parts of the ground, scoring an 88-ball 91. However, his dismissal came on the back of a percentage shot that he was trying to play, chipping one straight to the deep fielder, nine short of a century at home. Former Indian batsman VVS Laxman has backed Pant, stating that he has become more mature about his batting and insisted that the southpaw knows his shortcomings. “That’s the change which we saw in Rishabh Pant’s batting in the Brisbane innings where he played a match-winning knock. He has become more mature, he is aware of his shortcomings. He is also aware of the gameplan of the opposition bowlers. He knows which line to attack and which line to play defensively,” Laxman said on the post-match show on Star Sports."Even though he got out on 91, that shot was a high percentage one. Even though the fielders are back, Pant backs his power, strength and ability to hit six because it was with the turn. If it was against the turn, he would be disappointed, we all will be disappointed,” he added.Meanwhile, at the other end, the defensive field placement allowed Cheteshwar Pujara to keep the scoreboard ticking, with singles and doubles all around the ground. “One good thing with Rishabh Pant’s approach was that suddenly the momentum of the game changes. All the attacking fielders around the bat suddenly moved away from the catching positions and to the boundary line. Pujara also benefitted and he got a lot more loose deliveries,” he added.While Pant’s approach was criticised by the purists of the game, Laxman hoped that the team management is backing his approach. However, he also added that it comes with the risk of the left-hander playing a loose shot. “We have to back his approach and I am sure the team management is backing that approach. Now and then he can play a loose shot and get out but moreover I thought it was a mature innings with caution and aggression.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .
