Having secured four wickets across a span of two matches, Jasprit Bumrah emerged as the recipient of the Player of the Series accolade during the recent T20I series against Ireland. Notably, aside from his prowess with the ball, Bumrah demonstrated remarkable leadership attributes. Given the upcoming matches on the sluggish pitches of Sri Lanka, Bumrah’s proficiency in delivering diverse pace bowling becomes all the more essential. Moreover, the forthcoming Asia Cup, where he’s expected to bowl a full quota of maximum overs, will serve as a litmus test for his physical readiness leading up to the impending World Cup. Recognized as India’s premier fast bowler, Bumrah’s role holds heightened significance, particularly considering his absence from the T20 World Cup in the preceding year. His anticipation to make a resounding impact is palpable, as he strives to compensate for the missed opportunity and contribute significantly on the field.

Thanks to his impressive performance in the recently concluded ODI series against the West Indies, the left-arm Chinaman spinner, Kuldeep Yadav, has been given precedence over Yuzvendra Chahal. His notable performance in the previous 50-over Asia Cup held in 2018, where he secured 10 wickets in 6 matches across 6 innings, maintaining an economical run rate of 4.08 runs per over, further bolsters his credentials.

Kuldeep’s unique ability to deliver a diverse range of deliveries makes him a challenging bowler to contend with. Given the projected spin-friendly conditions in Sri Lanka, his skill set is anticipated to be particularly effective, posing a substantial threat to opposition batsmen. As matches unfold, his allocation of ten overs might significantly influence the ultimate outcome of the games. Let’s keep an eye on how his performance shapes the course of the matches in Sri Lanka.

Prasidh Krishna embarked on his ODI journey with a remarkable debut performance. Unfortunately, an injury setback forced him to spend a considerable span on the sidelines. Nonetheless, displaying resilience and determination, he marked his return during the recently concluded series against Ireland, showcasing a commendable bowling display that subsequently secured him a berth in the Asia Cup 2023 squad. Noteworthy is Krishna’s track record of claiming 25 wickets across 14 one-day internationals.

However, in the upcoming contests, the mantle of primary fast-bowling responsibilities is expected to be shouldered by the established duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami. Despite Krishna’s commendable achievements, Bumrah and Shami remain the preferred choices for these roles, underlining the depth of India’s fast-bowling arsenal.
