In the longest format, Mohammed Shami is more effective. The Indian T20 lineup boasts better quick bowlers, according to Australian legend Ricky Ponting.
In response to Mohammed Shami being left off the lineup for the Asia Cup. Ricky Ponting, a cricketing icon from Australia, thinks Mohammed Shami is best in the longest format and that India’s T20 outfit has better quick bowlers. The three professional fast bowlers selected by India are Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, and Arshdeep Singh. The all-arounder Hardik Pandya is the fourth pacer on the roster of 15.
Shami has been a very, very good bowler for India for a very long time. In terms of his strengths, Test cricket may be where he excels the most. This assertion was made by captain Ponting, a two-time World Cup champion, in the most recent episode of The ICC Review.
“Shami is not India’s top fast bowler for 20-over cricket. They only chose three other candidates (for the Asia Cup). If there are four potential players, he might be the fourth member of the team. While Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel were both injured during the Asia Cup, many people thought that Shami may be included to share the new-ball duties.
“In my opinion, they’ll just send the four quicks to Australia. They’ll still want to bring a lot of spin here even though the wickets are probably not very good, said Ponting.
The Asia Cup will be held in Dubai and Sharjah from August 27 to September 11, and Ponting has selected India as the favorite to win.
India is always challenging to defeat in any match, not just the Asia Cup. However, every time we talk about the forthcoming T20 World Cup. I always have faith that India will be in the center of events.
Because their depth is certainly greater than that of the other teams, I believe India will win the Asia Cup. Nearly ten years have passed since India and Pakistan last played a bilateral series.
In all honesty, according to Ponting, “Looking back the last 15 or 20 years, it’s one that we’ve been starving of.”
It’s almost always entertaining to see these types of clashes as a cricket aficionado and observer like me because everything just picks up, doesn’t it? Therefore, in my opinion, the Test match rivalry between Australia and England has always been at its pinnacle. The actual competition would also represent the pinnacle of Test cricket for those two countries. And I have no doubt that Pakistanis and Indians will both agree on this. Ponting believes that India is strong enough to defeat Pakistan.
“I’ll still be rooting for India against Pakistan in that game. That doesn’t take away from Pakistan’s reputation as a terrific cricketing country that routinely turns forth world-class athletes.
