The Indian captain Virat Kohli heaps praise on his fast bowlers at the conclusion of the ODI series against the West Indies. Virat takes pride in having the bowlers in his arsenal who can dismiss any opposition. Kohli said that his pace bowlers are better than just being one-Test wonders.
Kohli said, “Having a bunch of fast bowlers like this, who can just bowl out any opposition anywhere, is a brilliant thing to have in Indian cricket. [It’s] something that we haven’t quite relied on in the past, but I think them taking the attention away from the spinners in India is a huge statement.”
“So, I think that’s what makes us feel that when we travel now, we have it in us to win a series, and not just one-odd Test match here and there. So, I think it’s been hard work, persistence, learning the game, thinking about the game that’s got them to where they are and they deserve it fully,” he added.
Indian pace battery has evolved as one of the best in the modern-day cricket. Their performances in the recent past have been phenomenal. The 2019 proved to be a prolific year for the Indian fast bowlers in all 3 formats.
