Ever since the Board of Control for Cricket in India announced the Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2022, cricket pundits have been giving their opinion about the squad. In this episode, former Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson has also given a big statement. Johnson says that the combination of bowlers given by India is risky. The former fast bowler says that India has selected lesser pace bowlers for Australia’s bouncy pitches. Indian selectors have relied on the Jasprit Bumrah-led quartet along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel and Arshdeep Singh. At the same time, Mohammed Shami has been kept on standby.
Johnson, who arrived in India to play the Legends League, said, “If you have an all-rounder, two spinners and four fast bowlers in the team then it is a bit risky. But India is looking at playing two fast bowlers and one all-rounder and two spinners in the playing XI. In Perth conditions, four fast bowlers will have to be hired. I think they have planned and picked the team but with just four fast bowlers it can be risky.
