Varun Chakravarthy has shown he can harness the pace of the courts – Suresh Raina
veteran indian drummer Suresh Raina praised mysterious spinner Varun Chakravarthy and said Varun has shown the qualities of brilliantly mixing his rhythm on the surface of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Varun Chakravarthy is one of 4 spinners named in India’s final 15-member squad for the 2021 T20 World Cup which kicked off on October 17th.
Meanwhile, India’s National Cricket Team led by Virat Kohli are placed in Group 2 of the tournament alongside Pakistan National Cricket Team, Afghanistan National Cricket Team and New Zealand National Cricket Team. India will begin their World Cup journey with a battle against rival Pakistan on October 24.
Meanwhile, Suresh Raina said Varun Chakravarthy has only played a few T20 International matches, but he is not worried about his lack of experience at the international level.
“My experience at IPL was that the wickets in UAE and Oman will be very, very difficult when it comes to mystery spinners. This makes Varun Chakravarthy the main character in the bowling attack in India. He has shown that he can exploit the rhythm of the fields. Varun has only played three T20Is but I am not concerned with a lack of experience, ”Raina wrote in her column for ICC.
Raina believes India already has a lot of experienced activists on the team, especially in the rhythm department, and has appointed Bhuvneshwar Kumar as one of the bowlers who has a lot of knowledge and experience to deal with the situation in mega-events. Suresh Raina said:
“There is a lot of experience in this team, especially in attacking the seams. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, in particular, is leading the way in terms of experience and knowledge of managing big matches ”,
Inclusion of Shardul Thakur may also give extra strength to fast bowlers – Suresh Raina
The southpaw believes the addition of his Chennai Super Kings (CSK) teammate Shardul Thakur to India’s T20 World Cup squad will give Virat Kohli “extra strength” in the rhythm area. Raina said:
“The inclusion of Shardul Thakur can also give extra strength to the fast bowlers Virat has at his disposal. We have been waiting for this T20 World Cup for a long time. It’s been a difficult two years, but I think we’re about to see something special in the UAE and Oman ”,
Meanwhile, both Shardul Thakur and Varun Chakravarthy had exceptional runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. Chakravarthy chose 18 wickets for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) while Shardul Thakur chose 21 wickets for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
